    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with my review of the BBK Catted X-Pipe available for 2005 to 2010 GT Mustangs. In this video, we're gonna be talking about a few different things including the sound of this X-pipe, the materials and construction, and the install. I'll talk more about this later, but the install for this one is going to be a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, since it's an easy install for anyone. This X-pipe from BBK is going to be for the GT Mustang owners out there that are looking for an affordable X-pipe that's going to maintain the use of cat and that's gonna give a loud and raspy exhaust mod. This X-pipe is gonna make a big difference over the stock H-pipe and it's also one of the most affordable X-pipe options out there. Looking more to the mid-pipe itself, we're looking at a 2¾ inch mid-pipe that's gonna work with the factory headers or a set of BBK Shorty headers. The X-pipe is manual bent which is typical in exhausts, but the purpose of manual bending is to deliver smooth airflow. The smoother the pipe is, the smoother the airflow will be which helps with velocity. Now, there are a few different types of materials that exhaust components are made out of, and the material of the mid-pipe is really gonna drive the price point. This mid-pipe is aluminized tubing, and that's what helps to keep the BBK components more price friendly than some of the other options that are out there. So, aluminized tubing has some upsides and some downsides as well. Like I already said, this type of material is gonna be more budget friendly. The sacrifice that you make here, however, is that the metal is prone to rust and have corrosion over time, especially if it sees harsh road conditions. But if you live on the West Coast, or your car isn't a daily, then it might not be a big deal to you. If you're looking for a rider-dice system that's going to hold up and be everlasting over years and years, then you're better off shopping for a 304 Stainless Steel system instead. This is catted X-pipe and normally an X-pipe is gonna give more of a louder raspier sound, as opposed to the deeper note of an H-pipe. The Cardster [SP] high-flow race cats so they're gonna flow more than the factory cats would for sure, but I'm gonna hit again that these are high-flow race cats, and that means they might not pass emissions, they might not be legal and there is always that chance of a check-engine light. Circling back around that price, you're looking at spending between $400 and $500 for this X-pipe right here. I will point out that catted mid-pipes or catted pieces of exhaust in general, are gonna cost more than off-road versions will. BBK does have an off-road version of this mid-pipe which is gonna be the same thing, just without the cats, and it's gonna cost a little more than $150 less, so, that's always an option. But at the end of the day, you're looking at both power and sound gains here, since the X-pipe will open up exhaust flow and net you a touch more horsepower and give you a change in sound as well. But just keep in mind that your gains will change depending on your setup and your tune. The install of the X-pipe is not difficult at all. It's just a basic mid-pipe swap that doesn't involve removing any other items or any cutting. You're looking at a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour's time in the garage. If you don't have much experience in this area, it is a good idea to get a knowledgeable helping hand, but either way, this is a mod that most people, even first timers, can tackle themselves. If you do tackle this yourself, just know that you can do it on a jack and stands, but a lift would make it easier for sure. Like I said before, the mid-pipe is easy enough to install. You need a few tools for the install, but at the end of the day, you're just looking at a few exhaust clamps here to get the factory mid-pipe out and the new one into place. You do have some pieces here with this X-pipe, so just make sure to hang everything loosely until you have the exhaust all lined up, and then tighten everything down. And don't forget that you should re-tighten everything once you're passing heat through the mid-pipe, just to make sure you won't have any exhaust leaks. Wrapping things up here, the BBK X-pipe is going to be a good option for anyone with a GT Mustang that's looking at running BBK Shorty headers or the factory headers. It's an aluminized steel X-pipe that comes with high flow race cats and, as always, you can check this mid-pipe out some more online for yourself. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Race Car Growl. This free flowing BBK x-pipe for the 2005 to 2010 Mustang's not only increases power, but it also adds a crisp raspy, race car growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

    Durable BBK Construction. BBK's X-pipes use a free-flowing 2-3/4" diameter CNC mandrel bent aluminized tubing and a merged X crossover to improve flow. And features High flow catalytic converters to provide a significant horsepower increase over the restrictive stock cats.

    I have stock headers and fr500s axle back . I like the way it sounds, but looking for more sound! Where i live i cant do off road. Now, these catted bbk will keep the american muscle car tone and rumble , but its gonna be more louder,or the tone will change? And also after install i m gonna have check engine light ? I dont have a tuner and dont want one. Thanks!!

    patriotu

    • When you are swapping your stock mid-pipe for an aftermarket one, the sound will change especially with this mid-pipe since it is an X-pipe. This X-pipe will give you more of a raspy sound. So yes, your tone will slightly change as it will a more aggressive growl to your exhaust. Also, as you can see in the picture before and after the cats there are O2 bungs in which to plug in the O2 sensors. With the O2's properly installed into the bungs, you should not have a check engine light appear. This will also not cause you to have to re-tune your vehicle.

    Hi I'm looking to get a x pipe but I want to stay away from setting off my check engine light. I was wondering if this product tends to do that and if so what would you suggest doing to increase sound without having a check engine light. Thanks

    MarkR

    • Since this mid-pipe has the cats on it you will not run a check engine light and this would be a good way to help improve the volume of the car!

    I have a 05 GT, with Roush supercharger and tune. I want to replace the H pipe with the BBK Catted X-Pipe, I live in south texas and have to have the cat's for Ems. at present I have Shorty Cer headers, and Roush cat back exhaust installed. the question is will I have to have the Roush tune updated for this install or is it just plug and play?????

    ivanlitus

    • The BBK Catted X-Pipe (05-10 GT) will not fit on the 2010 V6 Mustang. The piping size is 2.75" whereas the BBK Catted X-Pipe (11-14 V6) item #56232 (www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-catted-xpipe-1113v6.html) has a piping size of 2.5" which is the stock size of the piping for V6 Mustangs for 2010 models.

      Nice replacement but misleading information

      I purchased to replace the OEM pipe that burnt out. Purchased with help from customer support because the original item I picked wasn't being stocked. Nowhere online nor over the phone did it say this required a tune. Once installed ran fine until the summer. Started getting check engine light. Contacted AM support (great support) and BBK(rude, D-bags), was told the pipe wasn't defective, it just runs cool and will trip the light. Check engine light goes off once the weather cools off and my inspection is due in January so I ignore the light for now but I won't ignore the BS from BBK. Saw a recent update that the part now required a tune.

      Awesome

      Install is super easy if you have access to a lift. for the passenger side rear o2 sensor you will have to remove the female plug from the bracket to have enough slack because the holes are a little farther down than on the factory cats. I had the pypes muffler delete but it wasn't loud enough for me.. these made my car sound perfect ! Exactly how a muscle car should sound.

      Made a huge difference in sound over the stock converters. I wanted to keep converters but have it flow and sound better. Worth it for sure. Took about an hour after getting the car jacked up high enough in my garage.

      Great sound

      Fantastic mid pipe, in combination with roush axle back produces an amazing sound with lots of pops. Only downside was I was not able to install myself had to get a mechanic with the special tools to install. If you have a lot of tools you can do it yourself but if not a mechanic is the best option.

      Great X-Pipe

      I found a shop to install this for me and it definitely will make the car much louder. The car also seems to accelerate faster too so I'm thrilled on both fronts. The only drawback is this will not pass emissions in either California or New York so keep that in mind. Other than that, it really is great and would definitely buy it again.

      Upset with this product

      I purchased this X-pipe in September and had it installed shortly after getting it. At first I loved the way it sounded and the compliments I received. As of last week it started sounding awful. I thought at first I had an exhaust leak so I brought it back to the shop to have it tested. They checked all the welds to make sure and they found nothing. Basically the BBK Catted X-pipe went out on me only after a few months. It sounds like it is broken up inside and like a hissing cat. Pretty upset that I paid $450 for a product to only lasted a few months. Now I need to spend more money to find another x-pipe to replace this one.

      Love the awesome sound!

      I love the way my Mustang sounds now! Sounds much more throaty, rich, and loud! Took me a while to install since it was just myself and I'd never done anything like this before but it worked out fine. When I first installed it I didn't tighten the bolts tight enough that connect to the header so some smoke started coming out of my hood from the header but once I re-tightened it, it turned out fine. Yes, there is some smoke at first when you start it up but it goes away after about 10-20min and it does smell a bit too. I did notice that my Mustang has better throttle response and accelerates quicker now. Also it was kind of difficult installing the x-pipe onto the over-axle pipe since my exhaust clip connectors were rusted but all I did was just sand them down a bit and put a lot of wd40 on them and then they slipped on to the pipes a lot better. Another thing that was difficult and a bit annoying was trying to line up the over axle and axle back exhaust pipe at the end once I installed the x-pipe. I did need my brother to help me out with him holding the over axle pipe in place while I lined it up correctly and then tightened the bolts. You may also need some PB blaster to loosen the bolts on the header and stock h-pipe since they were really rusted on there. Other than all of that it turned out fine and it sounds great!

      I was looking for a route to take without having to turn off my check engine light and add a little power and improve sound at the same time and I've found that in these BBK catted x pipes. A nice gain of power and improved sound over the factory pipes. Thanks BBK!

      Pulled over already...

      Had the sock H pipe with muffler deletes and it was loud anyways. Bought this X pipe because my left catylitic coverter was shot and rattled real bad, and still wanted cats so I didn't get pulled over... That was short lived. This pipe SCREAMS. saw performance differences as well, breathes a ton better up top and really rumbles down low so you don't have to hammer on it to smile. Very high quality Vs the other brands. Avoid concrete and brick walls where you know you won't be able to resist a rev matched down shift and you won't have any added costs!

      Perfect tone

      I chose this x-pipe to replace my Pypes Race x-pipe for two reasons: pass AZ emissions and my Pypes Race x-pipe was honestly a little loud when rolling the throttle at low rpm in 5th gear. I had my local Ford Dealer install it, so I can't comment on the installation. But the tone is awesome and it's nice to finally pass emission but still have a little heat coming from the pipes.
