      Will this bolt up to stock Catalytic converters on my 90' or is it meant to delete them?

      I have SLP Loudmouths and i am wanting to put this x pipe on. I believe the loudmouths are 2.5". Will they bolt up or will i need adapters or anything?

      • The SLP Loudmouth catback exhaust will have a 2.5" pipe size so it will mate up with the BBK off-road x-pipe which is also a 2.5" pipe size.

      I see a little inlet tube on one side of the pipe, is that for the smog pump line? I am doing a smog pump delete and want a no cat x pipe for the application. If that is the smog pump fitting anyway to have it removed and capped off?

      • Hi, The inlet tube on this BBK Off-Road X-Pipe can be capped off if you have smog pump delete installed.

          Great Sound

          This x-pipe has a wonderful sound i was looking for over a h-pipe. I only had a small issue with the drive side down pipe not lining up flush with the start of the x-pipe causing the clamp to leak. After a couple seconds in the pipe binder it fixed the issue. Love the new raspy exhaust note, goes well with my SLP loud mouth catback.

          The wife material of x-pipes!

          Everyone has ideas of that cheap x-pipe that they are gonna throw on their car and expect a happily ever after. Well, I'm here to tell you that the only x-pipe worth "taking home to mamma", is this one. The logical design of this sets the stage for in immensely easy install. Fist the x-pipe comes in two different sections. The front tubes and the back "x" half. Using an exhaust joiner clamp gives you the slightest little play you may need to get it fit just exactly the way you like. It doesn't hang too low nor does it bang the bottom of the floorboards. Get it. Only gripe is it could be $10 cheaper and they should offer a polished stainless steel version.

          Extremely loud

          First off I love extreme. I have a custom exhaust set up that screams. I have a Y pipe coming off each hooker header with an X pipe connected to each Y pipe. Then off of the X pipe I balanced the sound by installing one single in dual out flowmaster super 10 on one side of the X pipe and a single in dual out super 40 on the other side of the X pipe, did this on both X pipes. I now have 8 tail pipes so I put 2 out the back, 2 dumped, and 2 out the sides. Perfect balance of sound, gotta try it!!

          Louder, faster

          This is an easy way to add extra horsepower to your GT. Installation was easy, if you have basic tools and some mechanic skills. Once I installed it didn't seem any better.I guess it takes a few days for you to start hearing some growling. The sound produced is awesome,I am using it with a pair for of flowmasters 10 Series. It gave it about an extra15 hp.

          It's BBK

          First experience with BBK and I like a lot so far. Install was simple but very time consuming without a lift or anything. With Jack and simple tools look anywhere from 1.5 hrs to how many ever breaks you take. My fox sounds a lot better, but once I chop those mufflers and get proper exhaust I'll be in business.

          Best bang for your buck!!!!

          I was not really skeptical about the BBK X pipe simply bc BBK makes great products, I highly recommend to anyone looking for that extra tone in their foxbody. Did not take much time at all to install, maybe 2 hours including removing factory cats. Ultimately, love the sound It puts out and looks great under the car, thanks American Muscle!
