Mustang GT SVE Off-Road X-Pipe Install & Dyno (2011-2014 5.0L)

We install and dyno SVE's off-road x-pipe for the 2011-2014 5.0 Mustang!

This SVE mid-pipe will feature 3" aluminized tubing, it will increase power and torque, as well as be a direct fit into your Coyote powered Mustang! Since this x-pipe does not retain the factory catalytic converters, it is intended for off road use only and WILL require a custom tune. To maximize performance gains from this x-pipe we went with a custom tune from VMP Tuning, which can be purchased from Latemodel Restoration.com.

Now, let's go ahead and show you a baseline dyno pull with our 2013 5.0 Mustang with all of the Shelby goodies and VMP supercharger! For our baseline numbers, the car put down 593 horsepower and 554 torque.

With that being said, let's get the car up in the air and show you how to install the SVE off-road x-pipe. Then we'll reflash the PCM with the updated tune, and strap it back down to the rollers.

Needless to say, we are pretty impressed with the gains we achieved from the SVE mid-pipe. The car made an impressive 614 horsepower and 571 torque!

So if you do the math, those gains are good for 21 horsepower and 17 torque. Other than the SVE mid-pipe, this car only has GT500 axlebacks and a VMP Stage 3 Supercharger kit.

The SVE off-road x-pipe went on with out any major headaches, other than you might have to access one of the passenger side manifold nuts through the top of the engine bay. For the little time and money spent, this x-pipe proves it will increase power and torque from your 5.0 Mustang.

[THEME MUSIC] What's going on guys? Landon with latemodelrestoration.com. And today I'm going to be checking out SVE's Off-Road X-Pipe fitting all 2011 to 2014 5.0 Mustang. This SVE mid-pipe will feature three inch aluminized tubing, it will increase power and torque, as well as be a direct fit into your Coyote-powered Mustang.

Since this X-Pipe does not retain the factory catalytic converters, it is intended for off-road use only, and will require a custom tune. To maximize the performance gains from this X-pipe we went with a custom tune from VMP Tuning. Now let's go ahead and show you a baseline dyno pull with our 2013 5.0 Mustang with all the Shelby goodies and VMP Supercharger.

For our baseline numbers the car put down 593 horsepower and 554 foot pounds of torque. With that being said, let's go ahead and get the car up in the air and show you how to install the SVE Off-Road X-Pipe. Then we'll re-flash the PCM in with the updated tune and strap it back down the rollers.

Before you begin installation, go ahead and remove the negative battery cable. Next, get the car in the air by using a lift or a jack and jack stands. Underneath the car, spray quality penetrating oil on your manifold to mid-pipe connections. Starting on the driver's side, loosen both nuts with a 15 millimeter deep socket or ratchet wrench. Do the same for the lower nut on the passenger side.

We had to use a few extensions and a swivel socket to break loose the top nut on the passenger side manifold. Once the nuts have been removed, disconnect both O2 censors. Then loosen the four nuts on both exhaust sleeves with the 15 millimeter deep socket. To slide back the exhaust sleeves pry up on the small flange to release it from the tab.

With the help of a friend, remove the factory mid-pipe from the car. Next remove the factory gaskets and O2 censors with a 7/8 open-end wrench. Assemble the SVE X-Pipe and loosely tighten the included clamps. With the included hardware, slide the bolts through the top of the manifold, and then reinstall the factory gaskets. Grab your friend and position the new X-Pipe into place.

Go ahead and tighten down the front nuts and then slide the exhaust sleeves over the new mid-pipe. Tighten down the sleeves and included clamps. Reinstall and reconnect the O2 sensors. Double check everything, reconnect the negative battery cable, and you're all done.

The SVE Off-Road X-Pipe went on without any major headaches other than you might have to access one of the passenger side manifold nuts through the top of the engine bay. For the little time and money spent, this X-Pipe proves it will increase power and torque from your 5.0 Mustang.
