Improves Exhaust Flow. Magnaflow's X-Pipe uses free-flowing mandrel-bent piping with a Tru-X "X" style crossover and high-flow catalytic converters to improve exhaust flow and to produce significantly more horsepower and torque at the rear wheels than the restrictive stock factory catted H-pipe. Race Car Growl. This free flowing Magnaflow Tru-X X-pipe for the 1999 to 2004 4.6L Mustang's not only increases power, but with its modern "X" crossover pipe design it also adds a crisp raspy, race car growl to the sound of your exhaust.

Magnaflow High Flow Construction. Magnaflow uses 2.5" mandrel bent stainless steel tubing that has a consistent diameter throughout the length of the pipe, even at the bends to provide excellent exhaust flow that results in more power at the rear wheels. The included high flow ceramic catalytic converters far out perform the restrictive stock factory cats to provide a significant increase in horsepower and torque.

Application. This Magnaflow Tru-X Catted X-pipe is designed as a direct bolt-on for the 1999-2004 GT, 2001 Bullitt, 2003-2004 Mach 1 and 1999-2004 SVT Cobra Mustangs with either aftermarket short tube headers or the stock factory manifolds and a dual catback exhaust installed.

Technical note: 2004 Mustangs require the use of 24" O2 sensor plug-in extender wires.

Improving exhaust flow

After replacing the stock 4 cat "H" pipe you will hear an increased rumble but the real gain is in upper RPM performance. From 4 to 6000rpm the engine can breathe and you will feel the car pull harder.

fitment On Magnaflow's website, it says that this item is for 99'-03'. But here it states to 04'. I have an 04' GT, will this fix my car or is for 03' or later? Also, which ceramic shorty headers do you recommend with this x pipe if it does fit my 04' GT?

  • This will absolutely fit your 2004 GT. You will need the O2 extensions though so make sure you pick up a set of those. As far as which shorties, I'd recommend getting a tuned length as they will offer a bit more performance over the standard shorty. Also, ceramic headers will keep the engine temps lower giving better performance as well. Hope this helps!!

Will this fit on a 2003 gt convertable with an automatic transmission?

  • Yes, The Magnaflow Catted Tru-X X-Pipe will bolt right into your 2003 GT with an automatic. This installation can be done at home but it`s best to find a local exhaust shop who`ll install it for you because in order to get it tucked up nicely under your car, the vehicle needs to be up on a lift. Also, the exhaust manifold to the stock H-pipe nuts & the upstream 02 sensors are almost impossible to remove by using a pair of jack stands in your garage or driveway. Remember to purchase a passenger side exhaust manifold to X pipe gasket because the X pipe does not come with one. These can be purchased at your local auto parts store. Good luck.

Is a tune required when replacing the stock cat system? I am thinking of replacing the stock catted system with a Magnaflow catted X-pipe set up. Is a re-tune required with the new system? Thanks. Dick

  • No. You don't have to do a tune for the exhaust system. Now if you were doing headers and a full system with a cold air kid I would advise it because you will maximize you upgrades that way, but if your just putting on the xpipe you don't need to.

    After replacing the stock 4 cat "H" pipe you will hear an increased rumble but the real gain is in upper RPM performance. From 4 to 6000rpm the engine can breathe and you will feel the car pull harder. Magnaflow has great quality, easy install as the X-Pipe matched up. Did not need an exhaust gasket on the left side as the stock unit is steel and worked without leaks.

    Perfect Fit Catted X Pipe

    February 11, 2012

    Hi, I just wanted to give my opinion on this catted X pipe. I have a 2001 Mustang GT with an automatic transmission. This item bolted up perfectly to my stock exhaust manifolds without any problems. Ground clearance was a little better than stock and it tucked up very nicely to the floorpan without and rubbing issues. To save yourself any frustration or headaches, remember to purchase a passenger side exhaust manifold flange gasket. Some people might say that you can reuse your old one but, why take a chance on a possible exhaust leak. In my opinion, the best one is made by FelPro and the part# is 61203. As far as installing this item in your garage or driveway, it can be done but there is no way you`re going to be able to properly align and tuck this item up high enough using ramps or 2 pair of jack stands. Also, removing the passenger side upstream 02 sensor and H pipe to exhaust manifold nuts are not for the faint of heart so be warned. Just budget another 50.00 - 100.00 dollars to have a local exhaust shop install it for you if you don`t want to tackle this install yourself. My shop knocked it out in 40 minutes and the cost was 75.00 Keep up the good work American Muscle.

    Worth it!

    June 28, 2009

    Installed one today. Piece of cake (you will need the right side exhaust manifold/pipe gasket - NAPA had to order one for the next day). It fit perfectly and was EZ to install!!!! We will see if my \'01 passes PA emissions this week?

    Great Product

    April 03, 2010

    I've owned several Magnaflow products, and like the others this is a quality item. Well made, perfect fit, no issues at all during install. Great sound, exactly what we wanted. And cudos to American Muscle - I ordered on Friday afternoon and it was at my house on Monday morning, with regular ground shipping. You can't beat that!

    x pipe sounds great

    December 18, 2010

    x pipe sounds great easy to install and i really think becuse of the x under the trans it helps to warm my t3650 for better shifts i think note the parts store gasket requiered for the rt side that i purchased did not look like it would seal as good as the gasket that came with my bbk shortys so i reused that old gasket and i dont seem to have leaks so far the parts store gasket had crush bump on only one side as apposed to the bbker having both sides bumped.

    Magnaflow Catted X and SLP LM 1

    June 13, 2013

    I've had this particular combo for about 8 years now on my 2002 GT vert. Well, after all this years it finally gave up the ghost when the driver's side cat started rattling. I'm quite sure it would have lasted much longer but a lowered car, speed bumps and one or two road gators took it's toll. I toyed with the idea of going with another catted x-pipe but decided to stick with what I was absolutely satisfied with. It carries a premium price but you get every bit of what you pay for. Solid one-piece construction, mandrel-bent stainless steel with OEM fit and the sound is pure road music. Would I do it a third time? You betcha!.

    Catted X-pipe

    January 24, 2012

    I installed my Magnaflow catted x-pipe about a week ago and the exhaust tone is quite a bit more aggressive especially partnered with my Borla stingers. Here soon i need to adjust it to get a slight leak out, but it was probably my fault. I cant wait till the carbon builds up and get to hear the real potential of this x-pipe. I first drove it with my 200lb and 300lb friends in the car and it almost was as quick as it was before with just me in the car! I felt a great increase in power especially when i hit 4000 rpm. it rips!! Thank you AM you never let me down
