STATESVILLE, N.C. (May 11, 2020) – Following up to 1979-1995 Mustang coyote swapped Kooks long tube headers and exhaust is now available for manual transmissions.

The Kooks Headers and Exhaust long tube headers are engineered to be used with manual transmissions with OEM style bellhousing. In addition, the headers are designed to be optimum fitment with added performance gains.

As part of Kooks commitment to crafting the highest quality products, the headers are made from 304-grade stainless steel and feature 3/8”-thick flanges, 1-3/4” (part no. 10512202) or 1-7/8” (part no. 10512402) equal-length primaries for maximum horsepower and torque; 3” outlet slip-on collectors that include our patented scavenging spikes.

The 3” stainless steel race exhaust includes front connection pipes, X-pipe, tailpipes, 3” race mufflers and turndowns.
