Description
Balances Exhaust Gases. The Pypes Off Road X-Pipe is excellent when it comes to balancing out the gas pressures in your exhaust system. This Pypes off road x-pipe creates more power and torque than a traditional H-pipe. Why? Because the exiting exhaust pulses are merged at the "X", resulting in less exhaust back pressure for more power. Race Car Growl. This free flowing Pypes x-pipe for the 1996 to 1998 GT's not only increases power, but it also adds a raspy, race car growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

Modular Construction. Pypes unique three piece modular construction makes it quick and easy to add or remove catalytic converters to your exhaust system in just minutes, depending on your driving needs.

Durable Stainless Steel Construction. Pypes uses sturdy 16 gauge 409 stainless steel mandrel bent 2.5" tubing for improved exhaust flow and features welded reinforcement plates for additional strength.

Application. This Pypes Off-Road X-pipe is designed to be a direct bolt-on for the 1996 to 1998 4.6L GT Mustangs with either aftermarket short tube headers or the stock factory manifolds and a dual catback exhaust installed. Intended for off-road, track use only, does not include catalytic converters.

  • Absolutely, this will bolt right up to your stock manifolds as well as your SLP catback!! You'll want to pick up the MIL eliminators or a custom tune as well to get rid of the CEL due to removing the cats! Enjoy!

  • Absolutely! This Off-Road X-pipe will be a direct replacement for your stock mid-pipe on any 96-98 GT. Being that it removes your cats and it's an x-pipe, your Mustang will have an awesomely loud, raspy race car growl! You won't be disappointed!

    Absolutely amazing quality. Install took about six hours but only due to rusted bolts on my 96 gt. But once they were off, installation was easy. Its super loud and makes my stang sound like old school muscle. I would recommend these to anyone.

    great upgrade

    March 22, 2011

    i have a 96 GT and put flow masters on at first. then added the off road x pipe and HUGE difference! Even my dad that tells me to stop messing with the car and leave it stock, smiled when he heard it. highly recommend it, but be prepared it is loud.

    Very intimidating

    February 15, 2011

    Sounds amazing, it is so loud! Im afraid I might get pulled over. It has a great tone to it though, its a deep, raspy, loping idle that gets Intimidatingly loud between 2-3k rpm. Rev could set off a car alarm. Sounds great if you downshift too. Still gives me chills. Turning heads everywhere I go. Can be heard coming from 1/2 mile or more. Small increase in hp. Easy install except for one stubborn rusted bolt. (When you get one, try going through downtown or through a tunnel!)

    X pipe review

    February 17, 2011

    Excellent product. I have installed several H and X pipes over the years and this one by far was the easiest. Fit was perfect. Took like 4 hours to get the factory one off because of the passenger side collector bolts being a pain. It took a impact wrench to get them off. After that the new one went on in like 30 min. the fit was that good. A tip would be to replace the metal collector gasket it is only 10 bucks.This pipe is louder than the previous ones I have put on. Kinda has that nascar sound.

    X-pipe

    March 09, 2009

    The stock H-pipe was difficult to take off, I had to remove the starter in order to get at the bolts off of the manifold due to the 6, that\'s right SIX cats my 1997 GT had. The X-pipe went on easy and sounds mean with the magnaflow magnapack cat-back exhaust system. Great Buy!
