Features & Details

  • Improves Exhaust Flow and Sound
  • 409 Stainless Steel Construction
  • Cut & Clamp on Design
  • Reuses Stock Catalytic Converters
  • Fits 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs
Improves Exhaust Flow. Improve your V6's exhaust flow and give it a raspier, racier sound to get it the respect it deserves with this clamp-on X-Pipe from Ford Racing. The stock catalytic converters flow pretty well, but the whole system can deliver more power and a better sound when the exhaust gas pressure is balanced by replacing your factory hybrid H-Pipe with this free-flowing, high-quality X-Pipe.

Reuses Stock Cats. The installation of the Ford Racing X-Pipe requires no welding. Simply cut your factory hybrid H-Pipe out and clamp your new X-Pipe in its place. Best of all, it reuses the factory catalytic converters saving you money.

Quality Materials. Constructed from sturdy, mandrel bent T-409 Stainless Steel tubing the Clamp On X-Pipe will improve exhaust flow and last a lifetime.

Application. This Ford Racing Clamp On X-Pipe is a specifically designed for use on the 2011-2013+ V6 Mustangs.

Note. Stock 2011 V6 Mustangs come stock with a Mid Pipe that resembles both the H-Pipe and X-Pipe designs. This hybrid Mid Pipe was created by Ford to help add additional power and sound to the V6 straight out of the factory. This aftermarket X-Pipe will further help you reach maximum air-flow equaling additional power.

Would I have to tune my car again with this part? So I got a mustang v6 2013 with the 91 performance tune CAI and axle backs. Would I have update my tune again , if I get this product? Thanks. Javier

  • No, I had the same set up on my 2011 v6 and no adjustment to the tuner were needed. You will love this pipe. Better sound and a great mid range power boost. Hunter 1

is this product pretty much ford's version to the bbk shorty off-road x-pipe? i would just get the bbk x-pipe but it's illegal to use in NY and i don't want the hassle of swapping things in and out each time i need it inspected. i have already bought the roush axle backs and now i want the bbk long tube headers but dont want to drop another $400 on the catted x-pipe from bbk. so will this x-pipe work "the same" as the shorty x-pipe from bbk?

  • The Ford racing x pipe used the stock cats, so it should pass any inspection. As to headers there are new shorty headers available that will join up nicely to this pipe and still give a great HP boost while keeping you legal. I will tell you this. My 2011 MCA with a 3.31 gear, CAI, and BAMA tuner set in performance mode had been running consistent 13.5's and the x pipe addition has dropped me to down to 13.3-well worth the less than 200.00 spend.

Since these are just cut and clamp and reuses the stock cats would these be legal in CA?

  • Hello! For this Ford Performance Cut and Clamp X-Pipe because you are retaining the factory cats and not changing much of the exhaust, it should be legal in CA.

  • You have to cut your factory h pipe about 5-6 inches back from the cats and then clamp in the new x pipe. Its made for shorty headers

    Outstanding!

    The cut and clamp x-pipe made my 3.7 come alive! The shop decided to weld the entire unit instead of cutting and clamping which I agreed, it's a better way to go. I like my new sound! Thanks A.M.

    Cut and clamp x pipe

    After reading a lot of reviews I decided to purchase the Ford perfomance cut and clamp x pipe from American muscle ,it's easy to install and no need to weld just like it says cut and clamp ,no exhaust leaks whatsoever and perfect fit ,the sound changes just a little from the factory h/x hybrid stock pipe,but the x pipe screams and turns head after 3k rpms, and the power you can feel it right away if you have a nice set up. I have a 14 red v6 with Bbk shorty headers ,airaid cai and borla touring catback exhaust and this x pipe made the final touch love the sound of this combination, I have raced a few turbo cars including the bmw 335i and have beat them by more than 3 car lengths and that's with out a tune ,my next purchase will be bama tune .thanks American muscle for the fast shipping and awesome quality parts for my v6

    Ford Racing X-pipe

    Have to say it was a great choice to get this part installed. To be honest initial startup doesn't really have too much of a difference in tone but give it a couple 100 miles and that'll change. I have some other bolt ons that in turn really give it a nice rumble at 3k rpms and higher. For the Roush exhaust specifically it cleans up the higher pitched note you get at about 3500 rpms and higher. I recommend it for sure.

    California is super strict when it comes to smog so I can't touch my cats only legal shorty headers and mid pipe. With that being said this was the way to go. I have pype bomb axle backs and they can really give a blasting raspy sound. This X pipe eliminated that harsh blasting sound and is now just nice and deep all around. Deeper at cruising speeds, revs, popping sound, etc. As far as power gain goes it is slightly noticeable. A bit more "get up" but nothing crazy. The shop did these for $60 in 26mins. Happy with the product and what it did to the sound!

    I'm ganna give it to you straight

    Don't look on YouTube to see how it sounds if you install them you literally you have to hear it I person and actually feel it to experience the change in sound. I took these to my local muffler shop and literally I went to grab breakfast and came back and it was done. They didn't need the clamps because they welded them and sealed it up really good. Installation cost: $85. Before I had a horrible exhaust leak and when I took off there was a nasty blah type of splatter sound. The x pipes get rid of the sound and smoothen it up. The car wasn't as loud but sounded so much better. I didn't notice the performance gain but something was different. To get rid of the note buy these!!!! I recommend them to anyone. I just installed shorty headers from BBK with it all my mustang sounds deeper cleaner. I love turning heads and with this product you definitely will.

    I had this installed by Ford this past weekend and it took much longer than I thought it would - almost 2 hours. The tech even brought me out to my car and showed me why it would take long. The tech was not a huge fan of the clamp that was provided. He took it off and put on a more heavier duty one (he showed me that as well). The sound is definitely louder, but there is an initial rattle when I first put the car into reverse or drive. It goes away once I start driving. All in all, it adds a nice sound, it just wish the install wouldn't have taken so long and cost so much.

    Cut & WELD X-pipe

    I installed with a friend at a shop, and unless you can cut a perfect right angle, you won't be clamping these (nor if you could weld, why would you want to?). I used to welds, and the factory clamps, and I like the results. I have a different intake (CAI) and the Roush axlebacks. I won't say it made the exhaust quieter, but it did clean up the harsh raspiness of the axlebacks. It is MUCH cleaner now and if BBK made headers that would fit without a BBK X-pipe, they would be perfect for this x-pipe.

    good exhaust upgrade to keep it legal

    i wasn't sure what to expect if anything with this xpipe but have to say i noticed a cleaner exhaust note, quicker acceleration and some hp/tq gains most noticable in third gear. my car definitely seems quicker now :) i had a muffler shop install this and they recommended not using the clamps that came with this, it only cost me $48 for the install. if you're looking for a huge sound difference this isn't the part for you, i have a airaid intake and flowmaster axle back exhaust and i have a lot less popping now when i drive which leads me to believe the exhaust has been opened up. overall this was a good purchase.

    mid-range hp boost is evident

    It took the shop a while to get it fitted just right, but it was worth the 80 dollar install fee. Not only does it sound better (everyone in my car club noticed it when I drove up to our cruise in) but you can really feel a HP boost once you reach 3000 RPM and above. I highly recommend. Nick

    No huge changes but nice subtle differences

    I had a shop install this so it could be welded in place. They did have a slight disgruntlement about the fit but they said ti was much better than most similar parts. Cost me $100 for the install. Not a huge difference in volume of exhaust but a nice polish of the overall tone. Got rid of most of the pops when coming off the throttle while stopped. Added new tune at the same time so cannot really speculate about any power increases. Very happy with the purchase overall and as I mod the exhaust more this part will be come increasingly important for the total benefits of the exhaust work. I definitely recommend this mod.

    Great product for the price. Requires cutting of stock pipes so I had Midas do the install. Cost $55 for the install. Had these on before getting the bassani axlebacks. No power gain but a nice noticeable difference in the sound over the stock system.

    Cleans up rasp

    I installed this on my 2013 v6 after feeling like my Roush exhaust needed a little more growl. Shop had no difficulty cutting off the old pipes (conveniently right at the factory weld) and the rest is unclamping. The results were a little less than I expected although anyone with my axle back will tell you we have quite a bit of rasp around 3k. The xpipe brought the rasp down making the popping and accelerating a deeper tone but not incredibly noticeable. I highly recommend this to clean up overly raspy exhaust but if you're looking for louder or a different tone I suggest you try a catless set up or explore headers as an alternative.

    Ford Racing X-Pipe

    Easy install. I cut the pipes in the front and bolted it on with the furnished clamps. The clamps are heavy duty wide so there is no need to weld. Be sure to check the axle back exhaust for 1/2inch clearance all around. Gives the car a deeper sound over the stock pipes. When combined with a more free flowing muffler you will gain a few hp.

    Ford Racing X-pipe

    Love the sound and some noticeable improvement in performance, maybe 10 to 15 hp. I had it installed by a certified shop. I highly recommend having it welded instead of using clamps, at least that way you can ensure the xpipe will perform the way it should. Once again fast shipping, ordered it yesterday, received it and had it installed today. Verry impressed with everything and recommend you all that have an 2011 V6 get one of these!

    BEAUTIFUL exhaust note. Great value mod.

    I have the Pypes pype bomb axle back and that exhaust was really loud and raspy. After installing the X pipe it is a night and day difference! The exhaust tone is much more smooth and mellow, and you can tell the exhaust flows much better over stock due to less back pressure you can feel when driving and by the exhaust note. It is much more bearable now and sounds much better and less (ricer). When giving the car gas, it is more effortless to get going. My install cost was $100. 100 worth the money. You can tell how garbage the factory hybird pipe is after installing. Best of all, you can use stock cats, buy some BBK shorty headers, and have a really nice non headache free V6 with a fantastic sound :)
