WILD HORSES 5.0 Shorty Headers Ceramic with O2 fittings (pair)
These headers were specifically designed for Wild Horses to fit 66-77 Broncos with late model 5.0 fuel injected engines. They will also fit earlier 289 and 302 engines. No starter interference problems and easy installation. These are the best choice for low-end torque and horse power. Our advanced ceramic coating helps keep the under hood temps cooler. They come complete with all hardware gaskets and 2.5" starter tubes with fittings to hook up O2 sensors.
  • Heavy wall 14 gauge steel tubing
  • 3/8" flanges
  • Thick steel collector dome
While headers are a great addition to your exhaust system, there are some common issues you may run into when you use them. The header bolts tend to come loose and that leads to the annoying tick, tick tick, from the typically failing gasket. The gasket fails because the bolts come loose. Also, you could end up dealing with burnt plug wires which can cause misfire resulting in a lack of power and poor performance. So, with all that in mind, you may be thinking, 'why should I bother running headers?' Probably the original reason you were looking at headers was for the power, performance and mileage gains. You can have that without the headaches as long as we add a few extras to the project. If you just want to do the slam dunk, grab the complete header enhancement kit below. Alternatively, you can select just the parts of the kit that you are interested in.

Now how do these accessories address each of the common issues associated with using headers?
  1. The Stage 8 locking header bolts will completely stop the bolts from loosening. This will save your gaskets for as long as possible.
  2. Seal your headers to the maximum level with the Reflex headers seals. They won't Burn Out: 100% flexible graphite construction means Remflex gaskets are good for up to 3,000°F — far exceeding that of any vehicle's exhaust system temperature!
  3. Save your spark plug wires with our Plug Boot Protectors. These protectors will keep the boots from burning, preventing misfire and allow the spark to get to the plug where it belongs.

HEADER TECH

  • None of our headers will fit the 302 engines with 3 or 4 port air injector tubes. These were sometimes used on 74-75 Broncos as part of the emissions system. All of the headers can be modified to fit by grinding clearance on header flange.
  • None of our headers are designed to fit 5.0 "P" heads.
  • Headers do not require any modification of the smog system to render it inoperable. Existing smog systems should always stay intact. Consult your local laws before ordering.

Asked by Mark, June 15, 2022

Q: I will be installing the WH 1.5 suspension lift along with a 1 body lift. The transmission is an AX15. Which will be a better fit? The shorty or the long tub headers? Thank you.

1 Answer

Answered by sales - June 17, 2022

A: We prefer the shorty headers. Easier to install, and more wiggle room. Long tubes are great, but trickier to install and sometimes require minor modification depending on your Bronco..

Asked by Rick, January 22, 2022

Q: Do you have an exhaust system that bolts up to these headers? I'm using your 2 body lift, and 3.5 suspension lift, an AOD transmission, and the 23 gallon fuel tank upgrade on my 71 Bronco 302 V8.

1 Answer

Answered by sales - January 24, 2022

A: Sorry no. We do not offer any exhaust kits. Normally we prefer to have one built at a muffler shop, over an off the shelf Kit. As Bronco's get further and further from stock, it can be hard to plan for a, fit everything, every time, exhaust.

Asked by Hank, November 21, 2013

Q: will these headers fit a 351W block with GT40 heads from a 5.0L without causing interference or starter removal issues? thx

1 Answer

Answered by 8578 - November 21, 2013

A: Most of the time the Shortys rub the passenger inner wheel well. That is why we do not list them for the 351W. We do have a lot of people running them on trail rigs with 351W most of them have removed the inner wheel well for ventilation so it's not an issue.

I did a lot of research on which shorty headers would fit the best and everyone and everything pointed to these. Not quite. Had to do a little trimming on the pass side of the AOD bell housing to clear. Otherwise perfect. One more note, they forgot to send the starter pipes with the O2 sensor bungs but were quick to send them and resolve the problem. As usual, GREAT customer service.
