If you have a fancy cold air intake system but haven't replaced the throttle body with a larger BBK unit, you're throwing away horsepower
BBK headers look as cool as they perform, which is saying something since horsepower gains of 15% are not unusual
A larger BBK throttle body is like adding a larger carburetor to an old engineyou get more CFM worth of airflow for more power
BBK exhaust systems are built to get exhaust out of your Mustang fast, resulting in a faster Mustang
With your cold air intake and high flow air filter, you figured you'd be seeing some real differences in your vehicle's pick-up, but things still feel pretty much the same. What's going on? Well, it doesn't matter how much air you're supplying to your throttle bodythe throttle body itself can only pass so much air unless you upgrade to a larger BBK throttle body. A BBK throttle body acts like half a carburetor on an earlier car, and it determines the amount of CFM your engine can ingest. Choose a larger BBK throttle body, and you get more power and torque up to a point, particularly if you have high-flow intake components ahead of the BBK throttle body. The power differences are immediateyou can get anywhere from 5-20 horsepower with about 30 minutes worth of work by installing a BBK throttle body, thanks to the higher flow. And the installation times are kept short because each BBK throttle body is precision machined for each specific application. That means you get mounting points, sensor installation points, and hardware that matches up perfectly with your factory controls. So feed your street machine well by adding high-flow equipment ahead of the intake. But make sure your intake isn't the bottleneck by installing a BBK throttle body to let all that air into your engine to play.Yeah, power gains are what you really install BBK headers forwe'll concede that. But when you see your BBK headers installed, particularly if you order the optional polished ceramic finish, you'll realize they're also a styling accessory. The mandrel bent tubing wrapping around itself under your hood really makes a statement about your commitment to going fastand looking good doing it. But BBK headers are about much more than appearance. All the features you expect in a high-performance header are packed into each set of BBK headers, and then some. Thick, laser-cut flanges mean your BBK headers mount correctly to your heads and they seal tight every time. The aforementioned mandrel bent tubes flow exhaust without restriction, and the optional ceramic finish keeps heat inside the pipes while protecting the steel from the elements. And, particularly when used with other BBK components like H-pipes, BBK headers are capable of delivering as much as 23 horsepower to the back wheels of your vehicle. Not just horsepower gains, but rear-wheel horsepower gains. BBK headers can be ordered in shorty and full-length versions depending upon how far you're taking your exhaust build, but either way you know you're going to get the quality that BBK headers are known for.Okay, so we're willing to concede that BBK exhaust products tend to focus on Blue Oval machines, most specifically Mustangs. But that doesn't mean you won't find the occasional LT-1 BBK exhaust system in their listings, and you'll definitely find Honda Civic headers, one of the most popular lines of products BBK exhaust makes right now. But most of you looking for BBK exhaust components probably have a Mustang, and that's where the real action is as far as horsepower and torque gains available by installing a BBK exhaust system. How much? How does 23 rear-wheel horsepower sound? That's what you can see from your 4.6 liter Stang if you use the full-length header/H-pipe combo from BBK exhaust. The headers feature a ceramic finish for long life, and the system provides stock streetability so you're not creating a pure race car. If you're interested in a pure header installation, check out the Premium series from BBK exhaust. These mandrel bent, heavy gauge tubular headers can be ordered in shorty or equal-length versions, and can be ordered with ceramic coating. And you'll always find performance features like die stamped flanges and screw in studs on BBK exhaust products. Do you want X pipes for your Mustang? BBK exhaust makes them. H-pipes with converters? You can get them from BBK exhaust. If you have a performance Mustang and you're contemplating exhaust work, make sure you find out what BBK exhaust manufactures for your car before you order anything. The attention to detail coupled with real-world horsepower gains make BBK exhaust a real winner.
