Can this H pipe be combined with the V6 MAC dual exhaust conversion kit if the y-pipe is simply cut off in front of the mufflers? It says in the description combine with a GT catback, but what if I had my mechanic weld adapter pipes on to my v6 conversion... would this work?

2003 Year: 2003 Model: V6

  • It will work and yes extention pipes will need to be made for them to be combined. if these are both in hand I would say it would bea simple bolt on and up. if not then the gt catback systems would be a better deal with price and no custom work to get to mate together.

Will this also work with long tube pacesetter headers

tmtland Year: 2002 Model: V6

  • not quite the headers will push the Hpipe back too far to run a gt catback, but with modifications can be possible

Question Resolved

Will the catalytic converters quiet the loudness down? I have a '99 V6 & was definitely looking to get a deeper, lower growl using this H-Pipe. It says it reuses the cats, so does that quiet it down a bit or is that just for emissions purposes?

DonaldDuck Year: 1999 Model: V6

  • It will not be as loud if it uses the cats but it is illegal to run on the roads cat less. Try looking up some youtube videos of your car cat less and you will hear the difference!

    Great for a V6 Stock to True Dual Conversion

    I purchased this adapter kit when I purchased my Flowmaster American Thunder GT Catback exhaust. I had it professionally installed because it does require welding to the existing headers/cats. It was installed with the dual exhaust and everything went on very well. I cannot really comment on the difference in sound of this part alone, since I had them installed together, but the overall sound going from Stock V6 to True Duals from the catalytic converters has drastically increased the sound level. The sound is the perfect low growl I was hoping for, and many people think I am running a V8 now instead of a V6. It is not raspy at all. My only complaint is that I get some occasional ticking/rasp at 3000RPM (only once in a while), which I believe is because the bolts in this kit have come a bit loose. All I need to do for that, though, is have it tightened up. There was no leak in the pipes or welds when I had them inspected. All in all, this was a great purchase, although I am not sure that a local shop couldn't fabricate something themselves for cheaper, so I would check that option first.

    the truth on true dual

    I bought this H pipe alongside a Flowmaster American Thunder cutback and installed at the machine shop i work at with our welder, and it took the two of us about 5 hours to put in only working with ramps and a fork truck. Definitely not a do-it-yourself job; unless you have access to metal fabrication machinery, you should have it installed at a full shop. The two systems paired together make for a great sound, unless you really know what your listening for, you would think its a V8 with a nice exhaust, not just a V6. I would definitely recommend getting the real deal, this true dual exhaust instead of just a Y-pipe cat back. Not only does it sound better, but you will actually see more power out of this system than just a cutback. All-in-all there is no beating the real thing.

    Shocked: With MAC catback

    Had this h pipe put on my 2002 v6 along with the MAC catback system and was completely shocked the first time I heard it start up. Gives a much louder and deeper tone to my car now and Im not afraid to start my v6 in front of GT owners anymore! Also noticed an increase in power, I would estimate around 10-12 hp gain. I recommend the MAC system with it, not only is it the cheapest but also the loudest! Trust me you will not be disappointed. Thanks AM!

    Worth Every Penny

    I got this for my V6 2004 horsey and I threw on a GT Borla Dual Exhaust and the sound was amazing. It IS a tight fit, I installed it myself. Just have to make sure you cut in the right spot where the directions tell you too and put it on the right way otherwise it will hang too low if you throw it on the wrong way. You don't HAVE to weld it but its recommended due to the fact if you don't, it'll have more chance of leaks. Overall this was money well spent! Thanks American Muscle!

    Killer H-Pipe!!!!

    I had this installed along with the Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust on my 2002 V6. My mechanic charged me $150 for the whole dual exhaust install. The H-Pipe fit absolutely perfectly. As far as bang for your buck goes, this product takes the cake. Excellent performance gain as well. I felt it as soon as I peeled out of the shop parking lot. The exhaust sounds better everyday. This is a must buy for any dual exhaust conversion. Thanks AM!

    Makes it easy to use GT Cat-Back

    Used it in front of the Magnaflow Dual Catback Exhaust (99-04 V6) Sounds, and works great! Made the install of the GT system a piece of cake.

    Amazing but can be annoying.

    I bought the pacesetter H pipe with a GT catback exhaust. After looking at the diagram where exactly to cut after being beneath the car can actually be a bit confusing. After the Y pipe is cut and you put on the H pipe and the entire exhaust it hangs rather low. It is best when you fit the H pipe to do your best to hold it up or back the H pipe up and bolt it to the catback exhaust that way. With it hanging low you do have the problem of scrapping at times. Also, another problem is that the U clamps for clamping the H pipe to the stock exhaust after the cats they leak, not horribly, but noticeably. I would suggest getting it welded or get circular clamps that snug around the entire pipe with a inch of clamp on each side which will fix the leaks and secure the H pipe. The hp difference you can feel though when paired with a tuner would be better.

    Good, but be careful.

    I installed this H-pipe with the Mac Catback exhaust system on my 2002 V6, cutting IS required as i was aware, and i was able to get it on fairly easy. my only problem is how low it hangs.. on my car it seems slightly lower than the mufflers and does scrape from time to time. But, overall I am happy with it. Gives a great tone to the car and turns heads everywhere i go!

    Great Product

    Perfect fit install very simple only reason I didn't do this myself is because it does require cutting and welding but it's very easy to install non the less. Put this on along with the borla s type gt cat back and sounds unbelievable. So if your a v6 owner and looking to get a true dual exhaust this is a must. Not only is it affordable it takes less than an hour to install! Oh and of course AM shipped it fast and free. So enough said cuz this product really sells itself.
