      If it throws a code after installing them is it okay to drive the car

      • The BBK Off-Road H-Pipe will traditionally throw a check engine code for emission or catalytic converter related issues which is completely safe to drive with. However, if you are receiving a check engine code for anything other than Emission/Catalytic Converters, we would recommend having an automotive professional take a look at the vehicle.

          Sounds Angry

          I had it installed last week it gave it a louder sound and rumble , but it made my flow masters mufflers sound like some cheap mufflers dnt know how that happen ...even tho I was told the carbon build up inside over time gives a deeper sound then normal , those mufflers are still new...love the new sound tho

          1996 Mustang GT 5 speed

          First I would like to say the AM mustang car show was excellent. I purchased my H- pipe and chatted with the flow masters vendor at the show to decide which pipe to purchase. They told me the H pipe instead of the X pipe due to flowmaster 40 series and the year of my mustang. The BBK H off road pipe has increased the HP in my car and sound fantastic just like it’s supposed too. Sound like deep muscle sound car. Just waiting to add the cold intake. No check engine light so far.

          Old style sound!

          Love these pipes! You get that old muscle car sound when you punch the gas and that nice low but louder rumble when idled. It was exactly the sound I was looking and hoping for.

          Perfect. Almost

          Picked up this hpipe and Alonzo with Flowmaster Super 10’s, my mustang sounds like a true muscle car now. Deep throaty tone with little to no rasp and screams at WOT. Only problem s during install was the factory rusted factory bolts. There’s also a slight rattle now but I’m just too lazy to fix it.

          Bang for the Buck

          A great, simple way to make your mustang sound the way it was meant to without emptying your pockets. I installed it on my 1998 GT convertible, and it was sort of time consuming, but that was mainly due to everything I had to undo to actually begin swapping the midpipes. I have an automatic, so i just used a medal hammer to make a dent for the transmission and it fit fine. It definitely helped to have a lift and I wouldn't have wanted to do the swap without one. I run mine with the stock mufflers and it sounds good, but it is very similar to the sound of a southerner's pickup. It also hangs a little bit lower than stock as I have bottomed out in a few spots that I wouldn't have before.

          Killer sound

          Took 45 minutes to install but 3 days to remove old hpipe. Completely changed the sound of the car to a mean beast. And gave me some more kick when u hit the gas. Only problems I have with this h pipe is 1. The o2 sensor on the passenger side. It is impossible to fit one without it bending and destroying the o2 wires. The frame of the car is in the way. And number 2. You need a gasket for the passenger side header to midpipe or you'll have an exhaust leak

          H pipe

          Got it on time, looks and sounds as good as I hoped. Didn’t isntall myself Bc of some pretty rusted bolts but without rust should be a fairly easy install.

          I installed this H-pipe on my 98 GT paired with Flowmaster 40 series exhaust. Really woke her up, plus with the setup im running, you totally feel the gains from this h-pipe. Very good quality product. Only downside was on Autos you gotta clear the shifter linkage.
