Doug’s Mustang-Swap Long Tube Headers
What It Is: Long tube headers for your 5.0L Coyote swap.
Why You Care: These are the first sets of long tube headers we’ve seen that fit ’64–’73 Mustangs, ’66–’67 Cougars, and ’66–’67 Fairlanes with a 5.0L Coyote engine swap. It’s a big deal because without them, you would need to fabricate headers or heavily modify factory exhaust manifolds to get the engine in the car. The long tube headers were designed to fit all cars modified with front IFS conversions from TCI or similar, and come with installation hardware and gaskets.
