Description
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 stock 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.

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

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.

between the BBK shorty catted x-pipe and this x-pipe by ford, what is the HP gain difference? i have the bbk LTH, CAI and axlebacks by roush.

  • This x pipe isnt designed for LTH. This goes off your stock exhaust. Thats why its called cut and clamp. Im sure you could get it fabricated to fit, but by the time thats done you could have just got the BBK one and already had it installed. As for hp #'s, i would recommend looking at bbk's site to see what they claim. An x pipe generally makes more torque where as an h pipe makes more top end power.

X pipe and mid pipe So, X pipe is a replacement of the stock mid pipe, right? I am planning to get a borla atak and this x pipe, is this fit on my 12' mustang v6?

  • Yes, that is correct. This X-pipe would replace your stock mid-pipe and reuse your factory cats. This would fit your 2012 V6 without any problem!

    Cut & WELD X-pipe

    March 30, 2012

    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

    April 22, 2012

    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.

    Best Value X-Pipe

    December 07, 2011

    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

    February 07, 2014

    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.

    mid-range hp boost is evident

    May 02, 2013

    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

    March 15, 2013

    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.

    Ford Racing X-Pipe

    July 01, 2011

    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.
