Product Description

Pypes Performance Exhaust
All of Pypes street legal Mustang catalytic x-pipes utilize small, but mighty, 5.0 litre ODBC compliant, catalytic converters. They out-flow most performance mufflers and weigh a mere 2.5 lbs. These are designed specifically to give your Mustang a major wake-up call in both sound and performance. The modular design of these x-pipes allow for conversion from off-road to street-leal and back to off-road with optional cat-delete pipes. Pypes' Catalytic Converter X-pipes will pass emissions inspections in most states. Check your local and state regulations for installation and usage guidelines. Gain 8-12 HP and a unique sound!

Pypes Mustang X-Pipe Science
Since Mustang V8’s fire unevenly, exhaust gasses exit in pulses rather than a steady flow. While one pipe is filled with pressure the other pipe is relatively pressureless but the connecting of the two pipes in a siamese pattern allows pressure to be released to the other side. This action allows the exhaust to pass through the pipe quicker and this better ‘breathing’ increases horsepower.

Pypes Quality
High quality, exceptionally versatile design and performance define Pypes' x-pipe product line. They are a proven winner when it comes to bumping up the horsepower of your Ford Mustang. There’s no skimping on materials here. All Pypes x-pipes include dual 409 stainless reinforcement plates at the welds where they are needed most. All pipes are are mandrel bent, to allow for the maximum flow of exhaust gasses, which boosts acceleration. Fabricated using the highest quality materials, Pypes' smooth, seam-coated, mandrel-bent, 409 Stainless Steel pipe resists corrosion and extends the life of your Mustang's exhaust system.

5 Stars   Love the sound and fitment
By on 12/30/2013
Image uploaded by Sherman Anthony Singh I order Xpipe because my stock catted was burn and start to block up the flow of air but didn't expected the sound and throttle response of my car which I love and the fitment was great once I cut the 8.5 inch the catted fit right up but the only down side I wish that Pypes should send some nuts and bolt got to mount the mid pipe to my cat back I had to run to the auto store and get 4 longer bolt to fit. My set up is stock header, pypes mid pipe with catted and magnaflow magnapack cat back

5 Stars   exactly what i wanted

It took a little while to have it delivered because of the holiday weekend and it was backordered, it was shipped directly from pypes. The sound is great, the fitment was perfect. The midpipe is xfm33 and latemodel says it fits 96-98 2v gt. Just in case you were in the same boat i was after some research this also fit my 98 Cobra. Assuming 98 is the same as 96-97 it should fit.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
