Will these catalytic converters bolt on to stock headers. I ripped up the ceramic in my cats. I removed the muffler and drove around with it off until I installed the new muffler. All the ceramic clogged my muffler and it blew off on the highway. If these cats will not bolt on to my stock headers, which headers should I buy.

Brenton

  • Yep! The new hi-flow cats in this kit bolt right up to the stock V6 exhaust manifolds. This True Dual Conversion Kit does require a GT Axle-Back and another set of hangers for a complete installation.

Horsepower/installation? How much horsepower (estimated) would you say this adds? I'm looking at this BBK True Dual X-pipe and comparing it to Pypes Cut & Clamp X-pipe. Here's the link to the Pypes x-pipe: http://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-0509-v6-xpipe.html So, for $400, I can get this with new cats, and have to do no cutting, since it looks like this is all clamping or bolting on mechanisms? Correct? Because if that is the case, then I could install everything in my own garage. Whereas the Pypes for $130, requires cutting behind the cats, clamping that on, and then (I think) welding the rear end of the x-pipe to the catback GT exhaust. Both cutting and welding would require me to take it to a shop. So the basic question is, can I install this in my own garage, seeing as that I have no cutting or welding capabilities? And am I correct when assuming that the Pypes Cut and Clamp X-Pipe requires welding?

NickMCraig

  • This BBK system is a complete replacement for your stock mid-pipe and cat setup. The new high-flow cats included with this BBK True Dual Conversion Kit offer you better gains than the cut & clamp reusing your stock, restrictive cats. You shouldn't have any trouble installing this in your garage. You are correct in that the Cut and Clamp requires some cutting; however, welding isn't necessary. Once the stock pipe has been cut, the new Pypes gets clamped on. If you're looking for the best sound as well as the best gains between these two options, the BBK Kit would be our recommendation! Hope this helps!

Question Resolved

Will this work with Pypes exhaust 2005 V6, I have Pypes Headers. and am looking at getting the Pypes True Dual Exhaust. Will this kit fit both or will i need to pick out a differant cat back?

Overkill74

  • If you were to install this BBK True Dual Conversion, you would then need to choose any GT axleback system. This BBK Conversion would not be compatible with the Pypes True Dual Exhaust Kit. If you were to install the Pypes True Dual Exhaust, that would come equipped with everything necessary to bolt right up to your Pypes Headers. Just as a side note, the Pypes headers would need to be the shorty style as Long Tubes would not be compatible. If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call - we'd be happy to help!

Question Resolved

does this kit have everything i need besides the axle-back? I am trying to decide between conversion kits and i am unsure of the differences between this kit and the pypes v6 True dual exhaust x-pipe kit. The BBK kit looks like it provides new cats, and one set of mid-pipe, does it re-use the stock piping already on my car? and does it require me to use a set of bbk headers? The pypes kit re-uses my factory cats but looks like it has way more pipe than the bbk kit.Am I missing something? Also when i buy my conversion kit, would i need to have a set of Pypes headers? or could i have BBK or JBA headers installed and have them fit the pypes kit? http://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-v6-xpipe-0510.html

yodkelarc3

  • You are correct in that this BBK Kit comes with cats and the Pypes X-pipe Kit will reuse your factory cats. You can use any brand shorty headers with either system; however, using the same brand is usually best to ensure the perfect fit. The only other thing needed besides obtaining the GT axleback for both kits would be the hanger kit of the BBK Kit. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to give our customer service a call!

    I have a 2006 V6 and coupled this with the Bassani straight through mufflers. It is loud but when I step on the gas it is so awesome, the notes I'm getting are great. Not sure this is what I want for long road trips but crusing in town is great. It was a real task getting everything together I also spent a good 8 hours on this project. Most of the work was getting the old items off, very hard to get nuts loosen while on your back. Putting the new items on was pretty easy I had a pretty decent gap from the x pipe to the existing piping on the passenger side but the drivers side was flawless and easy to put together.

    Finally done after about 8 hours of trial and error on this exhaust under the car in my garage. I have never installed any type of exhaust and have basic mechanical skills. but let me tell you... when this new true dual exhaust is installed and paired with the magna-flow american thunder gt axelbacks, it will make your v6 into a mean racing machine. almost sounds like a v8 around 2000 rpms. loud exhaust but i really recommend it.

    SOO LOUD! almost deafening above 3500 rpm! installed at the same time as new JBA headers and FRPP stinger mufflers and BAMA 89 tune. noticed a MASSIVE gain pull off the line. NO DRONE! nice DEEP rich note. couldnt be more happy! only thing that didnt work was that we discovered the CAT's that come with it are NOT CA SMOG LEGAL! you can reuse your old ones but need custom extensions made to fit the gap.

    rough install, amazing product!

    Since I bought my mustang, dual exhaust has been something I've wanted to do and when the internals of my stock catalytic converters broke loose, I figured it was the perfect time to do it. The fact that this true dual system came with a pair of high flow cats made it perfect for my situation since my stock ones needed to be replaced. I planned on doing the entire install in my driveway but rusted bolts between the cats and the manifolds caused too much trouble so I took it to a shop. They did it quickly and fairly cheap too so I would recommend taking it to a shop for the install unless you have a torch to get the manifold bolts red hot to remove them and are able to get that torch around the egr tube and past the heat shields. Other than that this product fits flawlessly and sounds even better. I went with Pypes pyle bomb axle backs and the sound compared to stock is extremely loud. I always get looks and compliments from gt drivers. People even ask if its a v8 it sounds so good! Overall I recommend this product to anyone who wants to really open up the sound of your v6

    !!!amazingLLL

    I have to say, I was a intimidated at first to install the system myself. One mistake I made was I decided to remove the system one week before the new system arrived. Unfortunately I couldn't get one of the exhaust pipes off. So i cut it off and when I got the new system it required that pipe and I had to take it to a muffler shop to have it re welded. luckily it only cost me $25 so it was a very inexpensive mistake. Overall I think it's a great system it was easy to install and it sounds amazing.I paired it with the flowmaster Outlaw exhaust and it even sounds better than my wife's GT.

    Great sound, easy install

    Again installed on 08 4.0 with Xcharger. No issues with clearance, they send 5 clamps, so no need to worry about your rusted old one. Fit was good, bolts right in with no issues, though the O2 sensors are a pain. I installed them before the instructions said to, because it makes sense to tighten them off the car when you can work easily. Tough to do on your back but definitely possible. I paired them up with the shorty headers and some GT take-off's and they sound great. Makes my mustang sound as mean as she is.

    Love it, great sound, great price.

    I had this kit installed on my 2005 V6. I originally needed a new y-pipe and cats. The OEM Ford parts would have cost $1,400. On top of that, my original passenger side exhaust pipe had been cut and modified by the previous owner, so I chose to redo my entire exhaust system from my headers to my exhaust tips instead. I paired this kit with: BBK Ceramic Tuned Length Shorty Headers (05-10 V6) Item #56100 Pypes Mid-Muffler Catback Exhaust Kit (05-10 GT) Item #20019 GT500/CS Rear Bumper Cover w/ Diffuser - Unpainted (05-09 All) Item #53674. Don't forget to buy the SR Performance Stainless Steel Exhaust Hanger Kit (05-10 All) Item #20021 for the driver side exhaust. You're V6 does NOT have these hangers. I didn't use the exhaust pipe from this kit because I installed the Pypes catback kit, but the pipe would have been a perfect fit. NOTE: This kit is designed for an axleback exhaust kit. I went with a catback exhaust kit for two reasons. 1) I needed a second exhaust pipe to replace the old, modified passenger side exhaust pipe. This kit comes with ONLY one exhaust pipe for the driver side. It is designed to reuse the original passenger side exhaust pipe. The OEM Ford pipe was priced at roughly $120. This made purchasing a catback exhaust kit about the same price as an axleback kit. 2) I specifically wanted the Pypes M-80 Bullet mid-mufflers. They are one of the only aftermarket mufflers for a V6 that, in my opinion, sound good at all times. They do not have a loud drone on the interstate that is sometimes heard from other kits like the Flowmaster American Thunder mufflers. These mufflers have a deeper tone and they are much throatier sounding. At the same time, they are louder, but not too loud. And, they are significantly cheaper than most other kits, but they yield great results and are of excellent quality. Overall, the shop only asked for $300 to test fit, paint, and install the new rear bumper, and they asked for $500 to install my new headers, cats, x-pipe, exhaust hangers, and catback exhaust. Had I only installed this kit, the shop had priced it at a maximum of $100. The $500 was for only installing the headers, but they said they would just install everything for that price as a packaged deal. The shop said all of the parts fit perfectly and installed easily. American Muscle had everything delivered to me quickly, and all of the packaging was superb. There was no doubt that all items would be undamaged and in perfect shape due to the generous amount of packaging material used inside of the shipping boxes. The new cats are great. They are high flow and allow much more exhaust flow compared to the original cats. This paired with all of the other mentioned parts has really opened up the sound of my V6. People have already been complimenting my new sound, and I often see people look at my car as soon as the exhaust revs up. There have been several times when people have asked if I have a GT. If you buy this kit and pair it with the right parts, you will not be disappointed. Take your time, research all of your parts, listen to V6 audio clips, and make sure to ask lots of questions. Once you make your decision and get your parts installed, you will have a huge smile on your face every time you fire up your Mustang.

    Great X-Pipe Upgrade !

    This X pipe is amazing! So much better than the stock exhaust flow its incredible. The X sound lets you hear that raspy tone when you punch it. I installed this myself and have 2 tips. 1 - Do yourself a favour and get the hanger kit with it 2 - Install the whole system before tightening down all the clamps. This will allow you to adjust the system and keep it level, if you tighten all the clamps as you go, by the axleback you will be compensating your angle and may cause you to have rub down by the pumpkin and control arms. The cats are great upgrade in this kit instead of the restrictive ones you have right now. Definitely recommend this product !

    Good Dual Exhaust Kit

    Let me tell you, this dual exhaust is loud. I was running no muffler before this and now i have this with Pypes Violaters and its just as loud, maybe even louder. The kit fit great, you might just have trouble getting the o2 sensors out because it gets so hot there. I reused the head studs for the header because there was no reason to replace them. I was looking for a deep exhaust note. This is fairly deep until around 2800-3000 RPM. When you hit 3000 RPM's it gets very raspy. I have violaters, maybe if you get different mufflers like flowmasters or magnaflows, it will sound better up high. But down low it is fairly low and rumbly, sounds good. Great for a 6, i now get tire chirp gunning it from a dead stop without holding the brake. Overall, probably the best kit out there for power and volume!

    BBK True dual Exhaust kit nice product

    THE BBK True Dual Exhaust Conversion kits is a great purchase, excellent fit. It will be 3/4" short from the CATS end pipe to the X pipes. This is normal. the Coupler will correct the problem. Use a SUV or Truck jack stand this will help a great deal. Installation time will vary on the health and flexibility of installer.

    loud as heck

    I'll start with my particular setup. 2008 V6 manual, no CAI, stock headers, this product, and Pypes Violators axle backs (also sold through AM...i got the black ones and left a review there as well). If you are a daily driver you need to not make the same mistake as I did, and very carefully select your axle back. The violators created a drone over 100db loudness at highway speeds. I don't think they would have done that if the stock cats were still on. The setup sounded great on the city streets but once up to speed the drone was almost disorienting. I swapped axle back exhaust with a friend who had a stock '07 GT/CS. The GT stock mufflers are certainly a cut above the stock V6 sound but still pretty tame. Obviously doesn't sound as nice when accelerating compared to the Pypes but the drone on the highway is gone. So I'm sticking with GT axle backs for now until I am sure that something else will work with this setup and not cause hearing loss. I was told by the shop that the old midpipe was basically welded on to the headers, and that the install took some tweaking too. Axle backs aren't too hard to work with i replaced mine on the ground without a lift, but for the xpipe you might want to play it safe.
