Surprised, sound, install

I have the SSS exhaust and was surprised that after installing the x-pipe the car was quieter. I believe the x-pipe changed the tone and shifted the frequency higher. I used to have the 2000 rpm drone ...

is this x pipe loud with flowmaster outlaws?


  • This X-Pipe and the Flowmaster Outlaw Series will give your car an extremely loud and raspy tone. An X-Pipe gives your car a very raspy tone and the Outlaw's are extremely aggressive. Your car will be a head turner with this set up.

Question Resolved

I have a stock 2005 mustang GT with just a pype bomb axle back. What will this do to the exhaust sound paired up with my pype bombs? Also this will still pass CA smog right? Thanks


  • The Pypes Cut and Clamp X-Pipe (05-10 GT) would give your exhaust setup a raspier sound due to the X-Pipe. This midpipe however is not CARB legal, for further details of restrictions and and approved modifications, please contact your local authorities or DMV.

Question Resolved

Will this work with stock headers and Pypes axle back exhaust? I have a 2005 Mustang GT with stock headers and the Pypes axle-back exhaust. It sounds awesome but I am wanting a little more noise. It says this works with the shorty headers but I was wondering if it would work with the stock headers. Also, will this work with the axle back system that I have?


  • This Cut & Clamp X-pipe will bolt up to either shorty headers or your stock manifolds without a problem. Also, the x-pipe reuses your stock catalytic converters and does not directly connect to your axle-back exhaust. Any axle-back could be used without any problems! Hope this helps answer your questions!

Will this work wih long tube headers or just the shorty? Since this is the cut and clamp and re-uses the stock cats, could this be used with long tube headers?


  • Just the shorties. For longtubes you need a offroad x or one that will line up with LTs. This just replaces part of the factory H to make an X.

    Surprised, sound, install

    I have the SSS exhaust and was surprised that after installing the x-pipe the car was quieter. I believe the x-pipe changed the tone and shifted the frequency higher. I used to have the 2000 rpm drone however now it is not nearly as pronounced. Install was easy, I order band clamps for the front and reused the factory bands in the rear. Most time consuming was measuring, do a good measuring and it's a perfect fit. I would like to hear what it sounds like outside the car but I rarely let anyone else drive it.

    Nice X-pipe, cheap clamps...

    This xpipe installed really easy. Had to use alot of WD-40 to loosen the stock Ford clamps. Speaking of clamps..the ones provided from Pypes are JUNK! Do your self a favor and buy band type clamps or just higher strength U shaped ones.

    Mellow but Menacing

    Hardest part of this job, was jacking up the Stang. Battery powered Sawzall is all that's needed. What a great sound, with Shorty Tuned Headers, and Violator Mufflers. For you guys with a 2008, don't worry about the Hangars, you don't need them if you make sure you have 2" inserted in front end.

    Nice product. It helps when installing, to loosen the bolts connecting the exhaust manifold to the mid-pipe, (allows for more play when connecting the new Pypes. Two Cuts, 4 clamps and youur done.

    X-Pipe Cut and Clamp

    Very easy to install and great end result. I am very pleased with this product. Great way to get the x-pipe result on your vehicle without sinking the money into the whole assembly.

    Pypes Wows Me Again

    Added the Violator Mufflers last year and figured I would try the x-pipe out. Amazing sound coming from the rear now.. took away prolly 75% of the cabin noise I was getting with the H. I thought without the cabin noise that it quieted everything down...wrong. The x-pipe put all the crunch out the back like it should.The "Butt Dyno" tells me I picked up a couple hp/tq too. Should have added this a long time ago. Very easy install...just need a sleeve or something to join the two pipes on the back end of the x.

    Pypes x-pipe

    This is a great product! If u don't want to keep taking on and off your off road x-pipe? I suggest you buy the Pypes cut n clamp x-pipe. Easy to install just cut behind the stock cats install and clamp and u will notice a diffrent exhaust note and better exhaust flow! Best of all it's smog legal so you ain't ridin dirty!

    Change Your Tone

    I have a 2010 GT with FlowMaster Axle-back Outlaw Cans. My exhaust tone was super aggressive, which is great except in 5th on the interstate. I added the X in order to "tone it down" and it works! But in order to get you gotta give and the result is a milder sound across the spectrum. the sound still says bad ars but not pure muscle. If your super aggressive tone is too much the X is a good option to soften it up.

    Good product for the price!

    I was told by others not to get this because it would cause my Mac axel backs to drone worse...... I went against the advise and couldn't be happier. The drone while not completely gone has been subdued quite a bit. The note from the exhaust is unbelievable!!!!.

    Cut And Clamp X-pipe. I love Pypes products!

    It comes with re-designed clamps!! Super easy to install, 2 cuts with a sawzall. New clamps beat the old ones by a mile. Installed at my shop on the lift in under 30 Minutes. My car has a much more exotic sound now, slightly deeper but quieter idle. No drone at 65-75! Fantastic combo with my Pype Bombs! Sounds like heaven! Underpasses and tunnels are now a playground! Thanks AM!
