Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at the Pypes Long tube and shorty X pipe combination, fitting the 4valve 4.6L V8 found in all 2005-2010 Mustang GTs. I’m sure that many of you are aware that running a set of long tubes is going to yield the largest results in terms of both horsepower and torque, when compared to your factory manifolds, or even an aftermarket shorty header. What you may not know is by running a set of long tubes, you’ll almost always have to modify your mid pipe. This system from Pypes takes all the guesswork out of this process, by pairing your long tube headers up with the shorty X pipe, making for a direct bolt on no modification needed install. Taking a closer look at these long tubes from Pypes you’ll first notice they went with a brightly polished, 1 5/8” 304 grade stainless steel constructions, this diameters going to be pretty much the norm as far as aftermarket headers are concerned, with the one lone exception being the max long tube headers, that utilize a slightly larger 1 ¾” tubing. The Pypes also feature great welds throughout, including the inside of the welds here which you’ll find great penetration, and the best part is they’ve all been smoothed out so it’s going to help reduce any excess exhaust turbulence. As for the mid pipe again we’re looking at mandrel bent stainless steel construction throughout, this time utilizing 2 ½” tubing. This is an off road X pipe so it will delete those factory cats, of course doing so will trigger a check engine light, and that’s why we stress either having a tune in place, or planning on purchasing one around the time of the install. This way you can tune for the maximum power gains with the new setup, and of course turn off that check engine light. Besides the obvious gains in power, this kit is going to completely change the sound of your exhaust, there’s really only one way to describe the sound you get from running an aftermarket long tube and X pipe combination, and that is evil, I mean you might run into a little bit more rasp than usual, but it just sounds amazing. Of course throw your favorite catback of choice into the mix, and you have a combination that will surely wake the dead. That leads me to my final point, this system from Pypes will bolt up to any stock or aftermarket Cat-Back exhaust without issue, of course this makes for an easier install but it also makes for endless possibilities to obtain your ideal exhaust setup. We typically call any long tube header install a full day just to be on the safe side. We do have a pretty detailed writeup here on the product page that should walk you through everything very clearly. As always if you should run into any problems or you don’t feel confident enough to tackle this job, don’t hesitate to give your local shop a call. Pypes long tube and shorty X pipe is an affordable quality combination that will not only improve your horsepower and torque, but also your exhaust note, be sure to check it out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Increase horsepower and torque. The Pypes Long Tube Headers and Off-Road Shorty X-pipe combination for the S197 GT Mustangs will balance out the exhaust gas pressure to greatly improve your exhaust flow over the stock system resulting in more horsepower and torque for better throttle response.

Quality Materials. The Long Tube Headers are constructed from free flowing mandrel-bent 1-5/8" polished 304 stainless steel tubing and the Shorty X-pipe is made from 16 gauge 409 Stainless Steel 2.5" tubing for improved exhaust flow and performance.

Application. The Pypes Long Tube header and matching Shorty X pipe combo kit is designed to fit the 2005-2010 4.6L GT Mustangs. And is intended for off-road use only.

  • This Pypes Long Tube Header and Off-Road Shorty X-pipe combo would throw a CEL once installed due to the removal of the catalytic converters. A Bama custom tune can be used to turn off the CEL and is also highly recommended when doing a Long Tube Header install to obtain maximum gains from the upgrade. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a call!

Question regarding this system... So, I want to get a full PYPES exhaust system, I believe i just need the Pypes long tube headers with x pipe and then to finish it do I need the " Pypes Pype-Bomb Super System Catback Exhaust"??? I guess my question is what is a complete exhaust setup? i.e. :: headers//x-pipe//catback system or what?

olsonseth

  • A full exhaust system would be: Headers -> Mid-Pipe -> Catback. The combination you mentioned would be all that's needed. These Long Tubes Headers would bolt to the Shorty X-pipe and the X-pipe would then bolt up to the Pypes Pype-Bomb Super System to round out the system. Hope this helps!

Question Resolved

When I look at the long tubes it says at the end, "Intended for off-road use only." Really. I may be a bit naive, but when I saw the words 'off-road' I mean things like logging roads and trails that I'd take a rough looking 4x4, not my 06 Mustang GT. Can you explain this? Thanks.

LittleMagog

  • off road would mean the race track ..and may illegal to drive on the street where you live ...no catalytic converters....try the catted x pipe if you have to have your car tested....

  • The Pypes Long Tube Headers w/ Shorty X-pipe (05-10 GT) will work with the Magnaflow Competition Cat-Back Exhaust - 2.5in. (05-09 GT, GT500) item #48020 (www.americanmuscle.com/magnaflow-magnapack-catback-2005-gt.html). The Pypes Long Tube Headers w/ Shorty X-pipe will completely replace your current X-Pipe and mate up with the Magnaflow cat-back.

    Pain to do, but worth it.

    Pain in the butt but well worth it. This product sucks to install due to there being very little room to work with. I had Pypes catback exhaust installed before I did this so now my car is running Pypes all the way from the headers to the exhaust tips and it's the best mustang exhaust I've ever heard. It has a deep raspy sound to it and crackles even more than a Borja exhaust. If you want that straight up race car sound. Then this is the product for you. It has a noticeable deep rumble idle to it but doesn't make you want to drive with ear plugs. You can hear the exhaust while you drive with the windows up but it's not annoying. I highly recommend this product and Pypes Catback exhaust. But it will take some time and you will get frustrated with it. It took me and my mechanic friend 4 1/2 hours to install and tune the headers and x-pipe.

    Awesome kit, install was simple, just somewhat time consuming if your doing it on your back, but well worth the labor. Exhaust sounds great, can definitely feel the difference in power, car keeps wanting to pull. Was concerned about the X being raspy but its not to bad, at least with my magnaflows. Overall this is a great pick up and Its always turning heads.

    Great product for the $$$. expected a little more growl

    I am writing this review a few weeks after install. Before the headers i had the stock shorties w/ catted Pypes X pipe and Roush axel backs. The car was already pretty loud but wanted the deeper growl and better flow for more power. The install was fairly easy and the gaskets included are far better than expected. I wasnt aware that Pypes included gaskets so i had bought FRPP gaskets but ended up returning them. Total install time was about 3 hrs. Overall I am pleased with the product. At idle the engine is slightly deeper than before but that might be because of my prior setup. BUT, at full throttle she comes to life and is very loud just not as deep as expected. You can def feel the torque difference and makes burnouts that much more fun! ;) I have a buddy that has similar setup as me but has Kooks headers. Honestly, they sound the same. Cant beat this price!

    Installation of the headers is a breeze. Fit and finish is top notch. The X-pipe was a bit more difficult. Ended up having it welded up to fit. it's not perfect, but it works.

    Just had these installed on my '08 Mustang GT and all I can say is WOW....They've made a huge improvement in the sound, the power and the overall fun of driving it. It finally sounds and acts like a Mustang should..I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a deeper, louder exhaust note and of course more power. Install was straight forward and took about 4 1/2 hours to complete.

    Awesome quality craftmanship

    I purchased and installed these myself and will get the negative comment out first. They instructions are so generic (covers basically all vehicles ever made) EG: you may need to raise the engine, you may need to remove the spark plugs, you may need to remove the dip stick. And they shorted me an oxygen sensor extension. This was all Pypes, American Muscle was quick to send me a new set of wire extensions. On my 06 you have to remove the starter, dip stick, lower steering shaft knuckle, and engine mounts. Instructions said you could use the factory studs and nuts back but you cant on the drivers side because the stud hits the header tube on the 4th stud back on top and the 3rd stud on the bottom, you also have to lay the drivers side mount back in the hole out of the way before installing the header. I hope this saves someone else headache of starting the driver side header install and having to remove it 3 times. The fit between the X pipe and the headers was farther off than it should have been, but a little prying and spreading got it to fit and seal. The POSITIVES.... they look great, are well made, and sound AMAZING, I have had several comments about how good it sounds. I also installed an Air Raid CAI, Tuner, and underdrive pulleys. The performance gain was unbelievable. I cut 1 second off the 0-60 and gained 10 mph in the 1/4 mile.

    Clear difference of sound

    Absolutely this headers give your stang that distinctive muscle sound that make people turns they're heads when drive by the street. Though I did felt a little raspy inside of the car, by the center compartment, little bit more what I'd expected. Performance wise, this kit eliminates the cats and since I'd didn't installed some aftermarket. It feels sabe sound unleash, like it want to give that extra punch.I would like to upload an audio file, so that the people that want to buy them they can know what they will have. Sorry no pics, they would be similar like the previous guys that they have upload them.

    Bang For Your Buck

    Pretty great headers if you are asking me. I've had stock headers and mid pipe since I've boight my car and I just need exhaust to complete my bolt on list. (This doesn't account for the transmission and torque converter swap I did through TCI) I have a set magnaflow street axle backs and they are just a tad bit louder then stock. I feel like the open exhaust with manifolds on axle back is going to make for a great sound. But.... If I want to go really loud I can get Pype Bombs or MAC bomb's for a true straight pipe. We'll save that for later though. Over all it's a great exhaust set up for beginners and the install is always going to be a pain with headers.... Once those are on though you are going to be impressed with the outcome.
