Our mission:

"JBA is dedicated to engineering and manufacturing quality exhaust and performance products that exceed our customers' expectations while providing unparalleled service."


JBA is one of the most trusted names in the aftermarket exhaust industry because of our commitment to manufacturing excellence. Our product designs are original and innovative and always deliver, power, quality, fit, durability and smog legality are what we are known for. In 1987, those qualities were not present in the header or exhaust industry so we set out to build our own products to meet the needs of the growing street performance market. Originally developed for the 5.0L Mustang, JBA's direct replacement "shorty" headers were engineered with heavy-duty features, easy installation, a durable design and emissions legal status made them an instant hit with automotive enthusiasts across America. As demand grew and emissions regulation increased, we saw the need to broaden our product line to cover most popular GM, Ford, Dodge, Jeep, Nissan and Toyota vehicles. We have applied our manufacturing philosophy and build qualities to our entire product line to offer you the most complete line of quality 50 state smog legal∗ exhaust products in the industry.

∗ A small selection of our products do not conform to California Emissions Standards because they are designed for Off-Highway use. Please double check the California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B.) Emissions Code Placard to indicate whether the product meets emission standards for your locale.
