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.

No Mufflers? Headers? Can i just run this with no mufflers on this or no? Also would BBK shorts work well with this? if not recommnend some please!


  • The BBK Shorties will bolt up perfectly with this BBK O/R X-pipe. As far as running no muffler at all, most everywhere it's illegal to do so. We do have alternative options such as Dual Dumps or Resonator style exhaust if you wanted to steer away from a chambered muffler for increased sound. We carry lots of options. If you want some help deciding which would be best for your application, don't hesitate to contact us. We'd be more than happy to help!

    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!

    Very nice piece of equipment!

    I saw that this x-pipe was on sale so I got one. And I must say it is a well-designed piece. The three-piece design makes this x-pipe a cinch to line up and mount correctly. It lined up great with the BBK Shorty headers. Sounds great as well! Good buy!

    Best Purchase for exhaust so far!

    Man this Mid-Pipe will give your car some serious balls! I have BBK Ceramic Shorty Headers and it made the car sound a little bit deeper but not what I was looking for but this X-Pipe really gave me what I wanted. I have 60 Series Flowmaster Mufflers and the X-Pipe really gives it that classic muscle car sound. I would definetly recommend if you want to improve exhaust sound. Many people have already told me it sounds really good and even said it sounds like a race car. Definetly recommend this product.

    Bought bbk shorty headers and bbk x pipe to accent my flowmaster american thunder exhaust. The fitment was ok, hear some leakage coming out of the xpipe. Tightened the clamps good as new. Sound is ok. Its bbk go with a better well known company. You get what you pay for.

    More than I expected

    I installed this pipe on my 89 Saleen SSC, looking for just a little meaner exaust tone...It gave me just what I wanted without doing a full cat back. Connection to the 2 1/4" stock catback was a little dificult because the X pipe is 2 1/2" ...the flange mated , but just barely....It hangs a little lower than the stock H pipe ( I lightly scrape a driveway apron that I never scraped before) Overall, I was very satisified....good price...very nicely built...and a nice tone

    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!!
