  • While it should fit, it may not be without some modifications for a perfect fit. The BBK Long Tubes and this BBK Shorty X are designed to mate up without issue. Using mis-matched brands for Long Tubes is where precise fitment can sometimes require some more effort to complete the installation. Hope this helps!

    Bbk xpipe

    August 26, 2013

    I've always ran dr gas xpipes and loved the sound of them but this time around I went with a o/r bbk xpipe and I don't like the sound at all. It sounds like my car is muffled and it sound alot like te h-pipe I took off my car. I won't ever buy another one.

    Perfect For Your Build

    September 19, 2011

    Installed these on my 86 in conjunction with BBK chrome long tubes, and dynomax race bullets all behind an AFR headed 306. sounds amazing, the welds were good quality, only thing i could have asked for was for this to have been made of 409 stainless as opposed to the aluminized steel BBK tends to use. one thing of note, if you no longer use a smog pump and got rid of the lines for the pump, you will have to plug the tube coming out of the pipe. I cut the smog pump tube flush and welded a washer to the pipe, then welded the washer closed, and haven had any issues.
