About JBA

History and information about JBA and their products.

JBA PERFORMANCE dates back as far as 1987 when they adopted as their goal the designing and manufacturing of an aftermarket performance exhaust product that was smog legal yet at the same time was powerful enough for the performance driver and was also of primo quality and durability, and since none existed at that time it was an opportunity waiting to be taken and JBA PERFORMANCE did just that. The result of this endeavor was the direct replacement ‘SHORTY” HEADERS for the 5.0L Mustang proving to be a boon to the performance driver who loved their Mustangs but had to pass emissions standards in their states, and this was the solution and it proved to be easy to install and of inimitable quality. Emboldened by the success of the Mustang header and with an ever increasing need for emission legal products JBA PERFORMANCE launched new exhaust products for GM, Ford, Dodge, Jeep, Nissan and Toyota and today their exhaust products are the most comprehensive in the 50 states for being “smog” legal and they have never sacrificed performance or quality to attain this end. Finally in 2008 JBA PERFORMANCE became part of the well-respected PETRONIX PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS group that can trace its roots back to 1962 and has under its umbrella several exhaust companies with each having its own niche in the exhaust arena. The resultant merging of the JBA PERFORMANCE facility with the PETRONIX facility served the purpose of affording a more efficient production processes. JBA PERFORMANCE is well renowned in the aftermarket performance exhaust industry, most notably for the CAT4WARD HEADERS and JBA FIRECONE merged collectors and they were a tremendous hit at the 2004 SEMA show when they introduced the first long tub header and exhaust packages for the Mustang GT. And you can get these sui generis headers for your Mustang V-8 on the LMPERFORMANCE web site with its patented FIRECONE collector that serves to ease the transitions between the primary tube and the collector maintaining the direction and speed of the exhaust flow culminating in increased power.

When you add a JBA Header to your iconic Mustang you might ask yourself what kind of power gain can I expect and the answer is that on a fuel injected V-8 engine you should see between ten and twenty five horsepower gains and about the same in torque but with a V-6, on the other hand, the gain will between ten and fifteen taking into consideration things like your car’s condition and any other aftermarket upgrades you might already have on your car. The famous CAT4WARD shorty header for your Mustang is available on the LMPERFORMANCE web site and might be just the answer to your performance needs with its bolt on design and 50-state smog legality and undeniable quality. Peruse all of the JBA PERFORMANCE aftermarket exhaust systems for your Mustang on the LMPERFORMANCE web site and decide for yourself which is best for your driving needs and then let the team at LMPERFORMANCE give you what you want at a competitive price.
