2009-2014 5.3L Colorado needed in Socal to prototype BBK longtube headers - free set!

Hey all, I worked with BBK Performance last year to develop a longtube swap header for putting a 2011+ 5.0L DOHC Mustang motor into a 79-04 Mustang platform. That header proved extremely successfuly for them. Now they want to develop an LSx 1 3/4" ceramic coated longtube for 2004-2014 Colorado's/ Canyons. I will be providing them with my 2006 (fitted with an LS1 and T56), but they need a 2009+ factory V8 truck. They're also interested in developing a throttle body and cold air intake for our trucks. BBK will need the truck at their R&D facility for only a few days. They are first going to prototype the headers on my truck, then they want to test fitment on a factory V8 truck to make sure that 1 header can be used for all years. Whoever provides their truck will get a free set of headers and x-pipe. If they do the cold air/ throttle body, then they will also get a free one of those.

Please contact me via PM or my cell phone 949-235-6019 if you are interested. My truck will go down to BBK in mid May, so they will need the truck in early June for no more than a few days.

Nice, will be a good idea to make them for a truck fitted with Torsion Bars, then they will fit all trucks.

Re: bbk longtubes

I can't believe they didn't get a nibble for a free set of long tubes from a local V8 owner out there. I would at least let them make me a set and test fit them. That way I have a set when I get ready for them in the future. The rental car would only cost about $100 for 4 days.

Never heard from anyone on this project, BBK said unless we could find a V8 truck, they couldn't move forward, so we're still looking...

I always thought doug thorley s were modeled on a 2WD and OTTP were modeled on a 4WD? Wasn't it only the 4WD guys that had fitment issues causing the messaging?

edit: OP, are they shooting for equal length long tube headers. That would be something we really don't have without being custom done.

I would suggest contacting the guy in the original thread from my OP or the thread I linked above. He would have the most accurate information for you. However, I would assume they would go for equal length long tubes because it just makes the most sense...but I've been wrong many times before.

They haven't responded back to our guy out here yet. He left them a few messages and is just waiting now.
