Installation I was going to put this on my 98 gt but was wondering if I could put my h pipe with cats on when have in spection came . So overall question is that is there any welding needed.

justtil12 Year: 1998 Model: GT

  • No welding is needed. It will be bolted at the manifold flange and clamped where the mid pile connects to the mufflers pipes

will the 96-98 gt o/r x pipe fit a cobra as well? Will the 96-98 gt off-road x pipe fit 96-98 cobras as well?

96SN95 Year: 1996 Model: GT

  • No unfortunately. This BBK X-pipe is designed for the 96-98 GT, but BBK does make one specifically for the 96-98 Cobra. I've also attached a couple other options below for you. Give us a call with any further questions!

Question Resolved

What do I need? Do I need to have a tune or MIL eliminators to run this, or are those just to get the CEL to go off (I know the tune has other benefits)? I guess what I'm asking, is if there is any harm in running it without a tune or MIL eliminators?

Shadowrunner340 Year: 1996 Model: GT

  • I think that you can run it without a tune or mil, but getting a tune is much better plus you can see the gain in power.

    Awesome sound!

    I installed this on my 98 gt before I had new mufflers and even with stock mufflers this made my stang sound 10x better then it did and was very loud. After putting on the new mufflers The sound is even better and always turns heads.

    BBK X-Pipe

    1996 GT - I purchased this BBK X-Pipe at the recommendation of the American Muscle Staff. I have to say the sound is "awesome," has that nice raspy, deep sound that we all love to hear! The fit and finish is a bit to be desired, for my car at least. The right side hanger did not attach to the stock hanger on the car, and I had to heat the bar and bend it towards to the stock hanger position. The power increase is negligibly noticed but the sound is well worth it, through the entire RPM range! Absolutely amazing!

    Great investment for your mustang.

    The BBK X-pipe is definitly worth the investment. Sounds great with a low raspy tone and vastly improves airflow through the exhaust. The O2 sensors are NOT located in the factory positions but I found this to be an improvement over stock making installation of the O2 sensors much easier. All of the flanges, bends, and mounts lwere perfectly alinged making this seem like a factory direct part that installs just as easy.

    BBK X PIPE

    this product is great if you won't to eliminate your catalytic converters , but keep in mined that you may have to take your pony to a shop for adjustment's also you will need a mil eliminators for your 02 sensor's because the engine check light will come on , as for my self , i'm adding back high flow catalytic converters . don't get me wrong i love this product , my pony sounds great and white the flowmasters i add i love the sound of real muscle , americanmuscle !!!

    Excellent!

    Exhaust manifold bolts are a pain! after that smooth sailing. Loud, noticable, and head turning. People hear me almost a mile away! (litterally)

    They say loud pipes save lives...

    Bought the BBK X-pipe for my '97 GT to compliment my SLP resonators. The fit and finish I would say is fairly good. The car is way louder than when I had an h-pipe. Maybe an increase in hp, but nothing you can actually feel at the pedal. I don't know if it's the combination of my SLP resonators and x-pipe or just the x-pipe, but the car is way too raspy for my taste. At idle and lower RPMs the exhaust is loud, but not too loud. Way loud in the higher rpms though (which I like). You will get noticed with this set-up. Overall I'd say the product quality is good. If you like a raspy exhaust than I'd recommend it. If you're like me and would rather have a deeper tone, go with an off-road h-pipe.
