    Hey guys, Stephanie with here with this BBK down pipe that's available for all 2015 and up EcoBoost Mustangs. The BBK downpipe is going to be for the EcoBoost owners who are looking for a budget-friendly way to upgrade that restrictive factory downpipe, but with a catted downpipe that allows for a factory or factory-like cat-back setup. The whole point of an aftermarket down pipe is to relieve some of the restriction around the turbo because it is really pretty constricted. Opening up some of the airflow from the turbo can give some nice performance improvements. Basically, when it comes to the turbo, if you're looking for performance, you're pretty much going to want airflow as unrestricted as possible so the turbo can spool quickly.The faster the turbo can spool, the more gains you'll see. So this down pipe that we have here today is catted, but if you're looking to get around that, BBK does offer a downpipe that comes non-catted that's going to cost a little bit less than the catted version here which is typical to see on all exhausts. But looking at this one closer, it is a full three inch mandrel bent pipe with a step down. The step down's going to reduce the three inch down to a two and a quarter inch which leaves the option of keeping a stock cat-back or running an aftermarket two and a quarter inch one. That's one of the nice things about this downpipe. You can pick up the downpipe for some performance gains without having to purchase a complete new cat-back while you're at it unless you want to. Now, three inch is going to be larger than the factory downpipe which is where the less restriction portion of what I've been saying comes from, and if you pick up the uncatted version of this down pipe, then that's going to be even less restrictive. But even the catted version has a high flow cat which is more free flowing than the factory cat is. This option from BBK is made from aluminized steel and like I said before, it's C&C mandrel bent which helps with smoother airflow. So even though the main idea behind an aftermarket downpipe is to help give the turbo unhindered airflow, swapping out your factory downpipe's also going to give you more sound too, especially if you're running the uncatted version. Speaking of going with an off-road version, keep in mind that a new tune will be required since you are eliminating that cat, and it's going to be necessary to tune for that. Even if you are going with the catted version, while a tune isn't necessarily required, it is recommended, especially if you want to be able to realize the full power potential behind upgrading your downpipe. This downpipe is currently the least expensive downpipe that you can get for your EcoBoost but not by a whole lot. It's about 50 to 60 bucks less than the top of the line, and guys like Cook's and Stainless works. So that's just a little food for thought. The catted version costs right around $500, and the off-road version is $100 less. When it comes to the install, luckily this isn't a bad one. You're probably looking at a few hours to get everything done, and I'm going to call this a one out of three wrenches on the scale. This is obviously going to be easier to do on a lift, but, of course, you can get the job done using a jack and stand if you don't have access to one. You won't need anything out of the ordinary, just a few sockets, wrenches and a short extension. You are going to be removing the front and rear 02s for the install, so I'd just make sure to unclip those before you remove or reinstall them so you aren't twisting the wires. Of course, don't forget to make sure to grab the factory downpipe gasket before installing the new downpipe since sometimes that gasket can stick to the turbo. The only other thing I'd say is to line the new downpipe up first before tightening everything down, but that's about it. Only a few bolts and about two hours time for the install. So overall, the BBK down pipe is a three inch downpipe that steps down to work with the two and a quarter inch cat-back. It comes either catted or non-catted, depending on what you're looking for. Not only is this going to increase performance, but it's also going to open up some sound on the EcoBoost as well. You can check this out online more for yourself and see what you think. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Will this down pipe throw a CEL if you don't run a tune? I'm looking to not tune the car until at least my warranty expires.

        • The BBK down-pipe does utilize a high-flow catalytic converter which may cause a CEL due to being highly free flowing. Every vehicle reacts differently so you may or may not experience a CEL with the use of this down-pipe.

        Hi my question is will this down pipe work with the Ford performance flash tune or will I have to get a handheld tuner as most down pipes say require a tune? I have a 2018 Mustang Ecoboost, thanks

        • You would need a handheld tuner as the Ford Performance Flash Tune is designed specifically for their power packs.

        What's the hp/torque gain from this down pipe?

        • In order to measure the gain that you'll get from this downpipe, you would want to have a tune on the car as well. Otherwise, the gains are unable to be accurately estimated.

        I see that the Borla DP is no longer available, I was wondering if this DP would be compatible with the Borla ATAK Catback Exhaust?

        • Yes, this BBK downpipe is compatible with the Borla ATAK cat-back exhaust and would work perfectly together.

            Gave my EcoBoost incredible volume!!

            I love the 3-inch size of the downpipe and love that you can still use it with your stock exhaust since I only have resonator and muffler delete with 4 inch tips and it sounds amazing only issue is it threw a check engine light which sucks because I'm not protein yet so this is a great product if you're planning on getting Pro tuned or already are pro tuned!
