    Hello, does it fit in my Mustang GT 96? Thanks for help!!!

    PhilippK

    • No, The BBK Off-Road X-Pipe will only be suggested for the proper fitment on the 96-98 Cobra only.

    with stock headers and flow master cat backs on a 96 cobra, will this work? will it give the popping on deceleration? do I need to remove the cats?

    merkelm

    • This will work with the Flowmaster cat-back exhaust and the stock headers. It will also give you the popping sound you are looking for however, removing the cats will only make that popping more frequent as there is no catalytic converters to block that sound.

    will this x-pipe work with the magna flow competition cat back exaust or will I need to do more than bolt it in?

    merkelm

    • The BBK Off-Road X-Pipe will replace your existing H pipe on the car. This will be a direct drop in with any catback.

    Is the measurement of the pipe 2.5" OD or ID?

    DETMICH

    • The 2.5" measurement is for the inside diameter of the piping.

      Off road X pipe

      I was very excited for this exhaust install. The kit and parts provided all fit vey well and lined up perfectly. I really liked the material and the quality of the product. However, I was very shocked on how LOUD it still is even with stock mufflers. It is very raspy and choppy, even around 2500-3000 RPM's. I was hoping for a smoother more tuned sound than this but the overall quality and set up of the kit was nice.

      I Love It!

      I was looking for something to make my 1997 Cobra louder and this was the perfect item. The car screams now and I am absolutely in love with the tone of the car. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to make their car loud.

      The sound

      I installed this x pipe and man does the sound just amaze you. Was pondering on a off-road x or h pipe and finally pulled the trigger and got BBKs x pipe and i have no regrets sounds awesome with bassani mufflers. Thanks American Muscle.

      The Crackles

      I paired this x pipe with the SLP LM1 catback and it sounds amazing. The x pipe makes for awesome down shifts with tons of popping and crackles for everyone to enjoy. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who can get away with not having catalytic converters on their mustang.

      BBK Xpipe

      Install took a little longer than expected because of old bolts not wanting to come off properly. But nonetheless fit a little tight was definitely worth it. Word of caution not for the timid its Loud!!!!! Lol

      Pipe opened up sound! But....

      The pipe was made well, fit good. But... the air tube is bent a little too far away from the left main pipe before the "X" so it pulled the pipe to the left and barley clears the hangers now. Also, for those of us with the dealer option SVO side pipes, the flare on the side pipes will NOT fit the BBK. They're 2.25, not 2.5, so i had to drop the mufflers and take them to a shop for modification. Other than those two things. I love it!! Could be a bit louder, but that's not the pipes fault. Definitely, worth it! If you don't have the smog system, its probably even easier. Worth it, stop thinking and just buy it!! Lol you won't be disappointed!

      Ehh

      It doesn't sound good with a nonrestrictive muffler (magnapacks, slp lm1) but if you combine it with a more conservative muffler it is magical

      The right answer.

      Tired of buying used midpipes online that didn't fit the stupid extended tail housing/crossmember, I decided this was the cheapest x I could find and purchased it. The best part is the three piece design and quality band clamps. Came close to my crossmember but I got it to clear and sealed up well everywhere. Not a dramatic xpipe sound like you expect, more like a cross between the x and h sounds except at idle. Idle is a warbly love song. Buy it.

      Totally worth it

      Pair this up with a Magnaflow Street Catback exhaust and you will be very happy folks. It's almost like they should have been sold together. I definitely felt the difference in power and sound right away. Turning heads everywhere I go from the awesome deep tone this gives my car.

      Awesome purchase

      Packaged nicely. Nice thick wall tubing to eliminate droning. Sealed perfectly to the headers making it leak free. Band clamps allow some movement to fit perfectly. A little louder than expected but sounds great.

      BBK FTW again...

      When it come to bang for buck bbk exhaust never seems to let me down. I have ran there 5.0 hpipes. I have ran there x pipes. No real issues... only thing is I wish it was a lower profile for the exhaust with as low as my car is... but hey 200$ for flow and sounds.... I am happy

      Loud

      Very easy install, took about 2-3 hours due to rusted bolts. Final sound gives you a loud raspy race car exhaust note, although im not sure about the "15-20hp" gain it was supposed to give. Deffinetly worth the money.
