Product Info
  • Replace restrictive, cast-iron stock manifolds with precision built JBA Cat4ward Exhaust Headers
  • Maximizes exhaust flow for major increases in horsepower, torque and throttle response
  • Increased exhaust output delivers an overall improvement in power, efficiency and fuel economy
  • Dyno testing shows typical performance gains on modern, fuel injected V8s to be 10-25hp with similar increases in torque
  • Pair your headers with a JBA Performance Exhaust system for another 7-10hp
  • JBA Headers are crafted from either mild or stainless steel (depends on chosen finish)
  • Mandrel-bent tubing ensures a consistent pipe diameter throughout for unrestricted flow
  • Over-sized exhaust ports provide enhanced exhaust flow, especially with bored and ported engines
  • The beefy 3/8" thick, one piece, laser-cut head flanges make for a leak-free seal and easy installation
  • Patented Firecone collector vastly improves exhaust scavenging for better power, torque and throttle response (depends on model)
  • Includes premium mounting hardware for bolt-on installation
  • All JBA Headers are made with pride in the USA
  • Available in 4 finishes: Nickel-Chrome, Stainless Steel, Silver Ceramic and Titanium Ceramic
  • 1-year warranty

Ditch your tired, restrictive, inefficient stock exhaust manifold and let your engine breathe freely with performance headers. JBA Cat4ward Headers unlock your motor's power potential for unrestricted, white-knuckle performance gains.

The Achilles heel for engine performance is the exhaust. With JBA Headers, you get a boost of up to 10-25 tire-turning horses out of your motor. The steel tubing is mandrel-bent with extra-large exhaust ports and a leak-free, laser-cut 3/8" thick flange for fast exhaust flow.

You also get JBA's patented Firecone merge collector (depends on model), which quickly moves spent gasses out through your tailpipe. JBA exhaust headers let your engine breathe easier, giving you more power, torque and throttle response.

All mounting hardware is included for a do-it-yourself install that doesn't void your factory warranty. 4 finishes to choose from. Of course, your JBA Headers come with a 1-year warranty.

  • Some vehicles will require an additional down-pipe (either a Y- or H-pipe) for the installation.

Worth it!

Fit and finish is really good. I've installed headers before, but this time I had a shop do it. The only issue was removing the factory studs (from what they said). There was a small burr from the coating on the flange. Easily removed with a Dremel or similar. Just cruising it doesn't any louder, a little growl when getting on it. Definitely felt like there was more bottom end.

Quality product

The headers were accurately made and fit perfectly. All the bolts and pipes lined up without problems. The included mounting hardware appeared to be high quality. The titanium ceramic finish appears to be very durable and should hold up well. Installation took a whole weekend in my home garage.
