BBK Shorty Headers - Update

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on these. I just spoke to my rep at BBK, and they currently have a 4th gen hemi truck in the shop for R&D. They are scheduled to begin working on the new flanges late this week, or early next week. They told me they would call me personally when these are ready to go, so cross your fingers that they get it done quickly. I know many of you are tired of waiting on JBA, so this is going to be a great alternative for the guys that dont want to spend $1500 on the ARH longtubes or wait 1-2 months for a set of JBA's.

Yours were a rare exception. Most everyone that has ordered in the last 2 months has had to wait no less than 3 weeks. I saw a member say that he got his from Summit in a week, but Summit's price is very high compared to everyone else on them.

This was not intended to be another BBK vs. JBA thread though. I just wanted to inform everyone that there will be another option available soon.

I ordered from autoanything, that was before the sudden big demand for them, supply and demand is causing the issue for late delivery's I bet but that is unacceptable for the multiple delays IMO.

Glad to hear BBK is getting them done right and hopefully have a set for 4X4 as well, I was about to order a set of BBK myself until I found out they weren't gonna work for my ram? Great job in helping other ram owners HEMI450HP definitely need more header options to choose from

S&B said it would still be a couple weeks. It sucks having to wait, but I would rather they do it right, then start selling them before they are ready.

I think it is still going to be a month or so before the BBK's are ready. They just got the test truck in the shop, so they are going to have to do some R&D, and then manufacture the new flanges and weld them up.

BBK only listed their 3rd Gen shorties to fit the 2wd trucks, but there are many 4wd guys running them. Hopefully the same applies for the 4th gens. I will ask about this though.

Have they said anything about making them work for the 1500 4x4 guys? That has to be the largest volume market. At least around here, all I see are 1500 4x4, or HD.

Matt,

See if they can send you a pic of the ports when they are ready. I'm kind of skiddish about them just opening up the round flanges like previously posted. That sounds like the cheap way out for them and possibly a PIA for us.

Thanks

Will do. I think this only applies to the units that they had in stock at the time though. It would be pointless for them to continue making them the way they were and having to go back and machine them again afterwards...that's alot of wasted time. I'm sure they are going to have them cut correctly from the start once they get everything lined up.
