Our 2013 Mustang GT picked up an impressive 21 horsepower and 17 ft/lbs of torque from this SVE X Pipe. Driving this car before and after the installation, I could easily feel and hear the difference. Since this X Pipe does not include catalytic converters, the exhaust was much louder and more aggressive. Gaining over 20 horsepower for a simple bolt on was a great way to give this GT a quick and easy performance gain! (NOTE) These power numbers were made on our 2013 GT that is not stock trim. This vehicle has a VMP supercharger, 3.73 gears and VMP custom 93 octane tune. Actual power output may vary from the above mentioned horsepower gains.
