      I have a automatic 88 5.0 mustang. In the product description it says for manuals will it fit my car?

      • This will fit a 5.0L V8 Mustang with either automatic or manual transmission.

      Helpful (1)

      Do these BBK H-pipes have the L- shaped hangers welded on them to hang them on the automatic transmission exhaust mounts to hold them securely in place?

      • Unfortunately, these H-pipes were designed to work with the Manual transmission mustangs and will not be equipped with the hangers for the automatic transmissions. We apologize.

      What's the difference between this off-road h pipe and the other off-road h pipe by bbk item no. 56060?

      • This BBK Off-Road H-Pipe, item number 56042, is meant to be used on manual 79-93 5.0L Mustangs with long tube headers, while the other BBK Off-Road H-Pipe, item number 56060, is meant to be used on 86-93 5.0L Mustangs with either stock manifolds or shorty headers.

      Helpful (0)

      I was curious if they will work with other style longtubes besides BBK?

      • This H-Pipe will be able to work with other long-tube headers however the only ones that it is confirmed that they will not need welding or modification is with the BBK headers.

      I have a 94 mustang cobra with the 5.0 and T-5 manual tranny and I'm thinking about getting BBK Long tubes (Item #: 56057) will this mid pipe bolt up correctly with no problems? There doesn't seem to be a short H mid pipe specifically for a 94 cobra with long tube headers.

      • The BBK Off-Road H-Pipe would not work with a 94 due to fitment issues caused by the difference in chassis design.

          H-Pipe BBK

          I give this a one star rating as this didn’t fit what I had. It was a manufacture defect. Not American Muscles fault. They worked with by sending another pipe and that didn’t fit either. Called them back and also previously sent pictures so they could see what was going on. Needless to say I had to go with the X-Pipe. The H-pipe wasn’t long enough to match up to the BBK headers. I have always used BBK for headers and H-Pipes. First time this has ever happened. I will give a big thanks to American Muscle for working with me to get it straight.

          Hangers are missing

          In the picture above it shows the bbk hpipe with hangers that hang on the manual transmission cross member I got it in the mail with the box all chewed up and I inspected it for any damage there was non except there's no hangers like it shows in the picture nice to know what your paying for. There's no one else on here that said anything.

          Good pipes

          I bought these with the BBK long tubes headers and the two fit together as advertised. But the H- pipes flange did not fit up to the stock piping (had flowmasters welded into stock exhaust didn't want new piping) so I had to get a new flange made. I dont know if it was consumer error or just an unlucky mishap but it was easily overcome. Sounds good with the headers as well.

          Best headers ever purchase. Took only 2 hrs to install with h pipes also. Fit better then shorty headers. Sounds better and more HP. Going to order some for my sn95 also.

          Simple

          This h-pipe was an exact fit it also bolted in an produced zero leaks. The loudness rating is low due to the flowmaster super 40 mufflers not the h-pipe.

          The fit and finish is at the usual great level of BBK .Had the shop do these and well. Sounds geat and I believe there is a seat of the pants improvement as well.

          BBK Lont Tube Header Off-Road H-Pipe

          The quality is good and it fits well. It's louder than a catted H-Pipe, that could be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. To help with ground clearance and my lowered car, I cut about 3/8 inch out of the hangers and welded them back together. It tucks really tight up under the car after that.

          Product needed to be modified.

          We had to modify the hanger length to get it to fit properly. This took cutting and sectioning the hangers, then welding them back in place. This made the fit correct and tighter to the bottom of the Mustang. Without modification nothing lined up with the rest of the Flowmaster exhaust.

          Best thing you can do!

          I don't think you can have a fox without an off road H-pipe. I had the stock cats of my car for the past 7 year and don't know how I didn't ditch them sooner. Match it up with BBK equal length headers and some flowmasters and you'll be set!

          Product did exactly what was described about it!! Gave me that raspy off road sound and on top of that felt a great horsepower gain. Went hand in hand with the bbk longtube headers. Anybody can install this with basic mechanics tools. BBK= Real awesome american performance!!!
