2011 Mustang V6 3.7L BBK Long Tube Headers and Off Road X-Pipe
Just installed the BBK Long Tube Headers and BBK Off Road X-Pipe. These are
the mods that I had before the install: C&L Cold Air Intake, Bama 93 Custom
Tune, Roush Axle Back Exhaust. The
install is very easy however the only issue I came across was the fact that
BBK sent me the wrong O2 Sensor Extensions. They told me that no one makes
them yet and I also found in the forums people that were complaining about
the same thing. The fix they suggested was to solder an extension that is
exactly what I did and it worked perfectly. This setup is EXTREMELY loud
and I think the Roush has alot to do with it. It was already a little drony
at 3000RPM before the LTs and now its even more. I am going to get a Dyno with this setup and
then im going to slap on the stock Exhaust to see how it sounds. I will post videos
for those 2 things for sure. I also just received the Bama Custom Tune that
took the long tube headers into account and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Highly
recommend BBK and OR X-Pipe with the Bama Tune by American Muscle...

Stage 1 of our 2011 Mustang V6 Project - AmericanMuscle.com
Check out the 1st of our 4 part series where we take this stock 2011 Ford
Mustang 3.7L V6 Automatic
and turn it into the V6 we guarantee nobody will want to mess with! We'll
be building this project car up in 4 Stages of modifications, so follow
Stage 1 Modifications:
• Airaid CAI/Bama Performance Tuner - http://muscle.am/paLpp5
• Pre-Painted Side Scoops - http://muscle.am/qRF7x1
• Pre-Painted Eleanor Louvers - http://muscle.am/qHLJgi
• Mustang Magnetic Deck
Lid Blackout Panel - http://muscle.am/qLJw3n
Ford did a great job with this 2011 V6 Mustang. Not only does the car live
up to the 305 horsepower rating, when we
tested it out on our in-house Dynojet 224xLC, it responded
very well to aftermarket modifications like the Airaid Cold Air Intake and
Bama Performance Custom Tunes. We picked up as much as 22HP and 30TQ
throughout the curve. Then, we headed to the track to see what the 1/4 mile
results were. Stock, we laid down a 14.1 second pass, but with the cold air
intake and Bama tunes, we were able to knock off over a half second,
bringing our 1/4 mile ET down to 13.6! All of this with the stock 2.73
gear ratio, stock Automatic transmission and stock 17" all-season tires!
The car also looked much better than stock after we added a set of our
Pre-Painted Eleanor Louvers for the 1/4 windows as well as Side Scoops and
Mirror Covers - all in Race Red!

2011 Mustang v6 vs. 2012 Mustang v6 1/4mile
Me and my dad running down the 1320. At the time the black car was bone
stock, the red car had cai/tune/ab. The black car has since gone low 13's,
and the red car is the first in the country into the 12's n/a. This run was
the only time we were able to line up, just so happened to be the most
HORRIBLE runs for both of us. Still posted it anyways.
2011 Mustang V6 vs. 2010 Mustang GT
This was my first time at the track with this car (4th or 5th pass) and
second time I've ever been to a track in general. My 2011 6MT is stock
with the upgraded 3.31 rear and a Dyno tune from diablosport. The
2010 Mustang GT 5MT (which
you wont be able to see) is all stock with the 19" multispoke wheels and
pirelli tires and axle back flowmaster Exhaust. We actually ran against each other 13
times that night but this was my best pass. His best was a 14.14 on the
The slip for me is....
p.s. that clunk from 1st gear to 2nd is all created by the crappy mic
bouncing around versus coming from the car.
