More Power and Torque. Add even more horsepower and torque to the rear wheels of your Pony by eliminating those power robbing catalytic converters with a BBK Off-road Shorty X-pipe. Increases of 14 to 22 RWHP have been seen when installed in conjunction with BBK Long Tube Headers.

Race Car Growl. A free flowing BBK x-pipe not only increases power, but it also adds a crisp raspy, race car growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

Durable Construction. BBK's shorty X-pipe is constructed from 2.5” diameter CNC mandrel bent aluminized tubing and features a merged "X" crossover pipe to ensure maximum exhaust flow

Application. This BBK Shorty Off-Road X-Pipe is designed to fit the 1996 to 2004 4.6L V8 Mustangs, including the GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models with BBK Long-Tube Headers installed.

Easy install. Bolted right up to the BBK long tube headers and fit perfect with the SLP Louth mouth catback exhaust. There was such a huge sound difference and noticeable power gain on the higher rpms. ...

BBK Off-Road X-Pipe Good!!

Sounds really good, no complaints at all other than had to work with it a little for it to fit into place but other than that it looks great and produces great loud noise. Good quality, great product.

Will it ONLY fit BBK LTs? I have MAC LT's and a Prochamber currently. Thinking about swapping to an X pipe for a bit and seeing the difference, but want to make sure they will fit. Thanks Justin.

RUNVSOFTHISBULL

  • No, it will not fit. I have the same set up as you do. I bought the BBK off road and when I tried to install it with my mac LTs it didn't fit. You can get them to fit but some cutting and welding to the x-pipe will be need it. Thank you! Lino.

Would this fit a Magnaflow cat back?

Anonymous

  • This mid pipe will be able to fit with the Magnaflow catback exhaust as the flanges will match up as well as the size of the pipes.

Do I need to get the O2 sensor extender kit

Antman50

  • With the BBK Off-Road X-Pipe (96-04 4.6L w/ Long Tube Headers) you will need to get the SR Performance O2 Sensor Extension Kit - Pair (86-09 All) item number 56013 for the proper install.

Would these fit the space setter long tube headers?

  • This will not work with the Pacesetter long tube headers. You will want to use the Pacesetter mid pipe with the Pacesetter long tube headers.

Will this BBK X pipe work with other brand longtube headers? I have a set of Mac Longtubes that I would like too use with this X pipe.

Answer This Question

Tune. I've read that to change a mid pipe you need a tune . Is this absolutely necessary or can you get by without it. I don't care about power gains . If you need a tune why?

Antman50

  • For the off-road pipe you will need a tune to turn off the engine light, engine light will come up because you are deleting the cat-converters.

    This x pipe is pretty loud, only thing I didn't like was on the install it didn't line up perfectly with the bbk long tube headers... Had to do some serious pulling to get it to line up.. Other then that it screams when you really get on it...

    Bbk X pipe

    Overall great midpipe! You really hear the exhaust open up at 3k rpm and turn heads. It is perfect fit with the bbk longtubes but can be a little difficult hooking up to the catback.

    so... wonderfully... loud!

    I put this midpipe in along with bbks ceramic lt headers. Combine this with the slp loudmouth exhaust.. well now anything above 2k rpm she screams out to the world and everyone within the next few blocks knows im comming. Welds are solid and the x is beautiful with no cutout of the pipes themselves like some. Only issue i had was fitment where I actually had to flex the pipes out to fit properly with my headers and you should never have to do that for matched products.. ever

    Better than I expected!!

    I bought this mid-pipe with the ceramic BBK long tube headers and let me tell you...WOW!! The sound is great, the raspiness is awesome and the power is absolutely noticeable. I already had Flowmaster 40's and with this combo, you will not be dissappointed. Everything fit perfect, no modifcations needed and I couldn't be happier. Thanks AM for fast service and another great product, at a great price.

    offroad xpipe

    This xpipe really opened up my car. It goes great with the set of BBK longtubes that I had installed. The two parts really complement each other well. They create a wicked sound when put together. You can feel the difference in the launch of the car. The difference is there.

    bye bye cats

    easily bolted up to my bbk long tubes and exhaust, hard 2 notice gains since they were installed with headers. they are a bit low to the ground so speed bumps can be nerve wrecking. all and all decent product.

    bbk shorty mid pipe

    Overall, fitment was great while bolting up. Sealed to both the headers and catback just fine. The placement of the rear o2s is further away than the factory bungs, and require some type of extension. The weld quality is great and the sound is also great. for bbk headers the bbk midpipe is a must. I would recommed bbk products to anyone looking for good power at a fair cost.

    Awesome x pipe but.....

    The x pipe itself the really nice and the sound is awesome too, really loud and raspy but they did not line up correctly with bbk longtube headers which is a joke to me because they are the same brand, but with a little elbow grease and a second set of hands we got them installed and i couldn't be happier. Like always super fast and free shipping thank you americanmuscle!!!

    Doesn't fit properly.

    The problem with this part is that it's mass produced and looses quality that way. The pipes are welded into the x crooked and so a muffler shop is required to heat and bend them into place so you can bolt the off road x-pipe in.

    Doesn't align correctly

    I pretty much rolled the dice when buying the xpipe after reading all the bad reviews on the fit . When I put it on with my Bbk longtubes , there were openings from where the mid pipe and the mufflers meet , not a good sign so I put some jb weld to fix that problem .
