    Stephanie: Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with my review of the BBK shorty X-pipe available in either catted or off road versions fitting all BBK long tube header equipped 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs. This one's pretty easy as far as who it's going to be for. This shorty X-pipe is going to be for anyone that plans on using BBK's long tube headers on their Coyote powered S197 GT. Whenever you go from a shorty or factory header setup to a long tube header setup, you're going to need to change your mid-pipe to a shorty mid-pipe. There are some options out there that come as a complete package, the headers and mid-pipe together, but BBK has broken these two up so you can have different options when it comes to going catted or non-catted. Like I just said, you do have two options when it comes to this mid-pipe, an off road version which I have with me here and which does not include any kind of cats and is typically going to give you the most power and sound gains, and a catted version that has two high flow cats. Both options are constructed from three inch mandrel bent aluminized steel tubing, and both options feature a factory style two and a half inch connection that will work with most aftermarket catbacks in addition to your factory exhaust. Along with that you'll also notice 202 bungs along with the included flanges. The high flow catted version of this mid-pipe is going to cost between $400 and $500. Like we usually see, the catted version is going to be the more expensive of the 2 options, costing about $200 more than the off road version. That puts the off road mid-pipe in the $200 to $300 price range, being slightly closer to $300. It is pretty typical to see a catted version of exhaust being more expensive than the off road setup, but it will be more appealing to those of you with strict emissions rules or those of you that aren't looking for the loudness level that an uncatted mid-pipe will have. Also, keep in mind that you won't be running this mid-pipe without a set of BBK's long tubes, so you can factor those into the price of the shorty X-pipe. These items go hand in hand since you can't really install one without the other, which is another reason why long tube headers are pretty much an investment. Either way, all of BBK's header and mid-pipe options are coming in on the more budget friendly side of things no matter which options you end up choosing. You could be looking at a whole long tube and mid-pipe setup for well under $1000, which is going to be one of the most affordable options here at AM. With all of that said, the quality of the BBK options might not be as nice as some of the other options here on the site. I'm basically looking at materials when I say this. This BBK mid-pipe is aluminized steel like I mentioned earlier, while the higher end brands like Kooks, LTH, Stainless Works and even JBA are a full stainless steel if not a full 304 grade stainless steel. This isn't really going to have an impact on performance at all, but it just won't be as nice of a material, which may not even be a concern to you if your Mustang isn't a daily driver or it only sees mild weather. You may not necessarily be installing long tubes and a shorty mid-pipe for sound, but you are going to get a huge change in sound. The long tubes alone are going to change the sound of your exhaust. When you combine that with changing the mid-pipe, you can expect a pretty big difference in sound here. Obviously if you go uncatted all the way it is going to be louder than if you stick with high flow cats. Either way, you're looking at a brand new sounding Pony when you're done. At the end of the day you're looking at both power and sound gains here. In fact you can expect gains of 20 to 25 wheel horse depending on your setup and tune, in addition to an awesome change in your exhaust tone. Speaking of a tune, you will need a tune after the install here. Anytime you go with a serious mod like this setup you can pretty much expect to need a tune along with it. The install of this X-pipe alone is not difficult at all. It's just a basic mid-pipe split up that doesn't involve removing any other items or any cutting. But, since you'll most likely be installing this along with those BBK long tube headers, you can expect a project. Because of the combo install, you can expect a full three out of three wrenches on this one and a full day in the garage if you do decide to tackle this yourself. If you don't have a helping hand or don't have much experience in this area, it might be better to just take the car to a shop for the install. If you do tackle this yourself, just know that you can do it on a jack and stands, but a lift will make it easier for sure. Like I said before, the mid-pipe is easy enough to install, but the difficult part will be installing the headers. You're going to need your toolbox for the install with an assortment of different sockets, wrenches, and extensions. You're looking at things like disconnecting the steering shaft, removing the motor mounts and dropping the cross member. A lot of this install obviously requires working in some pretty tight areas. While everything is straightforward, getting access and maneuverability in these areas is actually tricky. Having a helping hand in this case is really going to benefit you. At the end of the day I think it's all really worth it. Wrapping this up here, the BBK shorty X-pipe is going to be a must have for anyone that's looking at running BBK's long tube headers. They're aluminized steel. They come either catted or non-catted. They're very affordable when we compare them to other options that are on the site. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Can I buy the x pipe and install later on the long tube header with this pipes will it show my ingine lights on??

    • Generally the off-road x-pipes will cause a check engine light to be thrown due to deleting the catalytic converters. We recommend a tune to correct this. Now if you wanted to wait to install this with long tube headers, that can certainly be done. Just please note that long tube headers are required and this x-pipe will not fit the factory manifolds/shorty headers.

    With this x-pipe, would it show my ingine light on ???

    • This BBK Offroad Shorty X-Pipe will generally trigger your check engine light due to the reading the O2 Sesnors will pull.

    Will this x pipe pair up with the bbk cat delete?

    • This BBK x-pipe will not work with the cat-deletes and is only designed to work with the BBK long tube headers.

    Will this x pipe connect to inplace of my flowmaster outlaw x pipe with any mods ?

    • Yes, this mid pipe will replace the Flowmaster outlaw x-pipe to use with the BBK long tube headers and would not require any modification.

    Will these pipes sound loud on a V6 or just a V8?

    • This BBK Off-Road X-Pipe will give you more sound volume, however it will not fit a V6. This pipe is only made to fit the GT models with long tube headers. We currently carry the BBK off-road x-pipe for the V6 models, item 56118, which will work with the proper headers for your vehicle. https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-offroad-shorty-xpipe-2011v6.html

      Was pretty easy to install. I got headers along with this x Pipe so it took a little long but the result was definitely worth the wait. My GT is a totally different car now love every minute of it. I did go to a shop to install everything to.

      BBK Off-road X-pipe

      Install was a breeze. Fitment was perfect. Changed the entire sound of the car along with the BBK Longtubes. Had a Pypes Off-Road H-pipe that wouldn't bolt up to the headers so I was forced to buy the BBK X-pipe. Liked the sound better from the Pypes and Borla Mufflers before the install.

      O/R X pipe BBK

      Probably one of the best purchases I made. Once I had a ported cobra jet intake installed, I went from high flow cats to this O/R X pipe to get the exhaust out easier. Definitely tell I gained some HP from the switch.

      PERFECT FIT

      I had purchased the BBK Long Tube Headers before this off-road x. Perfect fit. No problems at all whatsoever. Very easy to connect to the LTH's. All of the time was spent on installing the Headers. The sound will be "wake the dead" LOUD. I have Flowmaster Outlawz and it is LOUD. Scary LOUD but I LOVE it!
