      THE BBK 1 3/4 INCH CERAMIC TUNED LENGTH SHORTY HEADERS ARE A GOOD CHOICE FOR YOUR 05-18 RAM IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN PICKING UP SOME GOOD LOW TO MID RANGE POWER AND TORQUE, WHILE GETTING A PRETTY AGGRESSIVE SOUND OUT OF YOUR 5.7 LITER HEMI. THE 1 3/4 SIZE IS A GOOD MIDDLE-OPTION AS FAR AS PRIMARY SIZE, SO EXPECT GOOD GAINS FOR BOTH NATURALLY ASPIRATED AND FORCED INDUCTION SETUPS. THESE HEADERS ARE PERFECT IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A SOUND AND POWER GAIN OTHER THAN THE USUAL CATBACK, BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO SPEND A TON ON LONG TUBE HEADERS. THESE SHORTIES COME IN AROUND THE $450 MARK AND ARE A GREAT VALUE AMONG OTHER HEADER CHOICES ON THE SITE THE INSTALLATION IS STILL PRETTY INVOLVED, HOWEVER. IT’LL DEFINITELY REQUIRE SOME MECHANIC EXPERTISE SO EXPECT A FULL 3 OUT OF 3 WRENCHES ON OUR DIFFICULTY METER.IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET A SOUND AND POWER INCREASE FOR YOUR 5.7L HEMI, THEN A NEW SET OF MANIFOLDS OR HEADERS FOR YOUR RAM IS A GREAT WAY TO GO. SHORTY HEADERS LIKE THESE ARE A MORE AFFORDABLE WAY TO SEE THAT INCREASE IN BOTH OF THOSE AREAS, WHILE ALSO KEEPING YOUR RIDE STREET LEGAL – A GREAT BONUS FOR THOSE OF YOU IN AREAS THAT DON’T ALLOW YOU TO RELOCATE YOUR CATALYTIC CONVERTERS. WHAT THAT BASICALLY MEANS IS SOME EMISSIONS RESTRICTIVE STATES LIKE CALIFORNIA FOR INSTANCE, DON’T LEGALLY ALLOW YOU TO PICK UP LONG TUBE HEADERS BECAUSE IT MOVES THE CATS. THESE SHORTY HEADERS KEEP THOSE STOCK LOCATIONS THE SAME BUT STILL LET YOU SEE A BUMP IN POWER AND SOUND YOU WANT.THESE HEADERS ARE CNC MACHINED FROM A MILD STEEL, WHICH OF COURSE ISN’T AS DURABLE AS A STAINLESS STEEL SO GUYS OUT THERE IN WINTERY WEATHER AREAS SEEING A LOT OF ROAD SALT MIGHT SEE A BIT OF SURFACE COROSSION FASTer THAN THOSE THAT DON’T. THESE HAVE A CERAMIC COATING TO BEEF UP THAT DURABILITY WHICH IS WHAT I’D RECOMMEND FOR THOSE OF YOU IN SALTY AREAS. CHROME OPTIONS ARE PRONE TO COLORIZING IN THAT BLUEISH RAINBOW TINT FROM THE HEAT, WHILE CERAMIC COATINGS KEEP THEIR FINISH. THERES NO EFFECT ON PERFORMANCE, JUST MATERIALS LONGEVITY AND APPEARANCE. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THE POWER AND SOUND WITH a MORE DURABLE FINISH, THE CERAMIC TUNED LENGTH OPTION IS AVAILABLE FOR JUST ABOUT $450. KEEP IN MIND THEY DO WORK JUST FINE WITH YOUR STOCK CATBACK, ALTHOUGH AN AFTERMARKET EXHAUST WOULD DEFINITELY PAIR WELL WITH THESE TO INCREASE THEIR PERFORMANCE AND SOUND.NOW ULTIMATLEY WILL YOU SEE AS BIG OF A GAIN FROM SHORTYS AS YOU WOULD FROM LONG TUBE HEADERS? NOT EXACTLY, BUT THESE ARE OVERALL MORE AFFORDABLE, THEY’RE MARGINALLY LESS OF A HASSLE TO INSTALL, AND THEY STILL DO PRETTY WELL PERFORMANCE WISE. SHORTYS ARE KNOWN TO SHOW GAINS IN THE LOW TO MID RANGE ON THE RPM BAND, WHEREAS LONG TUBES TYPICALLY SHOW BIGGER GAINS UP AT THE TOP END. NOW THE SOUND HERE IS A LOT MORE AGGRESSIVE, ESPECIALLY WHEN PAIRED UP WITH AN AFTERMARKET CATBACK.AS FOR THE TUNED LENGTH – THERE ARGUABLE ISN’T REALLY A VERY NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PERFORMANCE OF A TUNED LENGTH SHORTY HEADER VERSUS AN EQUAL OR UNEQUAL LENGTH HEADER. SOME PEOPLE WILL SAY THEY HEAR A LITTLE BIT MORE RUMBLE OR EVEN BACKFIRE FROM ONE OVER THE OTHER, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU SHOULDN’T EXPECT ANY REAL PERFORMANCE GAINS FROM GRABBING A SPECIFIC ONE. TUNED LENGTH TYPICALLY REFERS TO THE PRIMARY TUBES MEETING THE COLLECTOR IN A SPECIFIC ORDER ACCORDING TO FIRING ORDER, WHILE EQUAL LENGTH IS JUST ALL 4 PRIMARYS BEING DESIGNED WITH THE SAME LENGTH. WHAT REALLY DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS THE DIAMETER OF THOSE PRIMARIES. THIS SET IS 1 3/4” IN DIAMETER, WHICH IS A PERFECT SIZE FOR ANY NATURALLY ASPIRATED MOTOR, AND EVEN DOES A NICE JOB GAINING POWER ON A SUPERCHARGED SETUP. THERE ARE SMALLER 1 5/8”, WHICH ARE USUALLY JUST FOR NATURALLY ASPIRATED MOTORS, AND LARGER 1 7/8” PRIMARIES, TYPICALLY FOR SUPERCHARGED APPLICATIONS. THIS HERE IS THE BEST FOR BOTH WORLDS, MEETING RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.THE INSTALLATION FOR A SET OF HEADERS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT’S A LONG TUBE, SHORTY OR STOCK MANIFOLD REPLACEMENT, WILL BE MORE INVOLVED THAN MOST JOBS. WITH THAT SAID, YOU’LL WANT TO HAVE THE FULL TOOL BOX ON DECK, RATCHETS AND SOCKETS WITH A VARIETY OF EXTENSIONS, ALONG WITH A JACK AND JACK STANDS OR A LIFT IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO ONE. YOU’LL DEFINITELY NEED SOME MECHANICAL EXPERIENCE OR PROFESSIONAL HELP IF YOU DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE TACKLING IT YOURSELF, WHICH IS WHY I’M GIVING IT A FULL 3 OUT OF 3 WRENCHES ON OUR DIFFICULTY METER.JUST TO WRAP THINGS UP HERE, IF YOU’RE THE OWNER OF AN 09-18 2 WHEEL OR 4 WHEEL DRIVE 5.7L RAM 1500, YOU MIGHT WANNA CHECK OUT THE BBK 1 3/4TH INCH CERAMIC TUNED-LENGTH SHORTY HEADERS WHICH YOU CAN FIND RIGHT HERE AT AMERICANTRUCKS.COM.

        Good product

        Got them professionally installed. Replacing my stock manifolds with broken bolts. Very happy with the sound and performance. Mechanic said they were a bit of a pain to install but only took him 5 - 6 hours.

        Great Product

        The product came as advertised. Install was super easy, it was a direct fitment from the stock manifold. Pricing is a little steep but the product is worth the outcome. These headers give my truck a little lower grumble to the sound, which is what I wanted. I recommend getting the ceramic over the stainless steel. Also, after install, once you run your vehicle after a couple days, you'll have to torque the header bolts.

        Not as easy.

        I'm a trained mechanic and the install was much more intensive than just a couple hours. Other than that, they look great and the sound is a little crisper than stock. only driven with them for a week. Seems to have better mid-range power but have not noticed any MPG changes yet.

        I have a single cab Ram and 6speed so I chose these as the best middle of the road option. They look good and do give noticeable low end pull.

      hey guys, i have multiple questions if you dont mind. I didnt see it in the description so am i to assume these are not stainless? Am i to purchase heat shields, upgraded gaskets and up graded exaust bolts separately? Possibly you over a kit including mentioned items? Thanks.

      • If something is listed as having a ceramic finish, it will indeed be stainless steel so you shouldn't have to worry about rusting. This will come with the necessary hardware and gaskets.

      Will these headers give me better gas milage?

      • Just like getting more air into an engine, getting more of the spent exhaust gasses out of it will improve an engine's power and efficiency. This will help to improve gas mileage, although you may not see a huge difference.
