  • Yes, that is exactly what this Catted X-Pipe is meant to do. It's a direct, bolt-on replacement for your stock mid-pipe! Definitely a great upgrade with the high flow cats to not only get rid of your problems but increase horsepower at the same time!

    BBK Catted X pipe

    July 08, 2014

    I was so happy to dump the stock restrictive 6 cat mid pipe for this finely crafted product. My exhaust is otherwise stock, but this modification made an improvement in felt power and a more muscular sound.

    Worked great in my situation.

    My sons 97 mustang had a BBK offroad X-pipe and needed cats to pass state inspection. Since the car was already using a BBK pipe I thought it would be simple to get the catted version of the same pipe. This made install simple. It took less than 30 minutes to remove the offroad pipe and install and adjust the catted one. I actually prefer the catted exhaust note but my son is 16 and definitely thinks that louder is better. The install was so simple that we decided to put the offroad pipe back on until next inspection. Overall I would recommend the BBK pipes, catted or not. Build quality seemed good and all the hardware was included.
