Designed to balance out the exhaust gas pressure in your system, this X-pipe will help improve exhaust flow for more power and sound.

    Reuses Stock Cats. The installation of the Ford Racing Cut & Clamp X-pipe requires cutting and removing the stock H-pipe, and reuses the factory catalytic converters saving you money. Clamps and instructions are provided.

    Quality Materials. Constructed from sturdy 2.5" mandrel bent T-409 Stainless Steel tubing the Cut & Clamp X-Pipe will improve exhaust flow and last a lifetime.

    Application. This Ford Racing Cut and Clamp X-Pipe is a specifically designed for use on the 2005 to 2010 GT and Bullitt Mustangs.

        are these x-pipes california legal? I was told by a hole in the wall muffler shop that they are not. I'm thinking of getting these to go with my Borla Stingers.

        • The Ford Performance Cut and Clamp X-Pipe will be CARB legal as you will reuse your stock cats.

        I just added the Flowmaster 40 series Axle-back to my stock 07 GT and love the throaty grunt they give off. I was hoping they would give a more deep and loud sound than they do. Would this X-Pipe be a better choice to achieve my desired sound, or would an H-Pipe be a better choice? Am I correct in saying the performance (Dyno, MPG and response) is better with the X-Pipe than the H-Pipe? If it helps make my decision, and your answer more informative, I am getting ready to buy the JLT series 3 and Tuner combo from you guys. Thanks.

        • The Ford Performance Cut and Clamp X-Pipe will cause your exhaust to have a more raspy, racey sound. An H pipe will offer a deeper, throatier sound compared to an X pipe. Performance will be slightly better with an X Pipe, however the difference will be minimal on a street car.

            X PIPE POWER

            This X-pipe added a nice sound to my S197 mustang and I feel a little more power. Great addition to your exhaust system.

            X pipe for 05 super charged 4.6.

            The X pipe changed the exhaust tone to a noticeable pitch, I have Flowmaster outlaw axle back mufflers. It seems to sound like the newer 5.0. It takes the super charger to a new level. Love the response and the new tone.

            Satisfied Overall

            The X-Pipe definitely gives a slightly more aggressive tone especially when coasting but fitment could have been better thats the only reason i would give 4 instead of 5 stars.

            not quite as described, performance wise

            ok, a very easy fit- all done in 30 mins, but sadly this WILL quieten down your exhaust, i have MBRP axle back silencer deletes, and the aggressive exhaust note has been tamed, please don't think- as in above QnA that it will increase volume- it will not. performance wise- zero benefit. do i wish i'd kept stock H pipe?.... sadly yes... john london

            Should have installed this years ago!

            Rock-solid exhaust system mod...easy install... Everyone told me it would make the car sound "raspier and louder"...but that didn't happen! With the OEM exhaust manifolds and Spin-Tech mufflers hanging at the tail end...the addition of the "X" actually made it sound deeper and throatier!! I'll be very interested to hear the change in sound when I complete the install of the BBK Chrome Shorty Headers!

            Exactly what an X pipe should do.

            I pared this with my roush extreme cat back exhaust system, and it opened up the should a bit and gives it more of the sporty race car growl and throats to it.

            Good simple add-on

            I added this x pipe to my 2009 GT. There is really no difference at startup and idle of the car with this pipe. The real difference is in the higher rpm ranges and when you get on it. Sounds more like a raspy race car now slamming the gears.

            Ford Performance X-Pipe

            Had a local shop install for me since I just couldn't free up the time needed. Just a few days with daily driving so far and this mid-pipe seemed to smooth out the exhaust note a bit at low to mid RPM's with the Magnaflow axle backs already on my car. Looking forward to some track time soon and expect higher RPM's to have an improved sound. Tough to tell if the x-pipe helped performance yet. I'm happy with the quality of this product and would recommend it.

            Good sound.

            I love the way it made the car sound. Also my throttle responds has improved hardcore. My only complaint with these is they didn't fit..they had to be heated up and bent to fit better. Besides that they r a decent product

            Nice End Results Very Fun (not) Doing it On Jack Stands

            Just finished install on a stock 2008 Base model GT. American M. instructions and Fords are both available on AM site. There was a small measurement difference between the two. Although I checked the Ford instructions, I followed AM instructions. The job was difficult due to working up and down on your back wrestling with the pipes. ....but its a "hobby". * The fit to the head pipes was difficult but it can be done (without removing the head pipe)s. An Irwin grip 600 LB set up as a spreader to spread the head pipes just gave me the angle needed. AM instructions say to use a ratchet strap to draw the head pipes together. It was a spread first in my case. Recommend this item. No dramatic change in sound (felt smoother? ) but a nice throttle response difference from stock. Now need a pair of mufflers and an AM discount code. THX.

            very happy with results

            I never quite understood the rational of switching from H pipes to X pipes, but enough people I trust said it was worth it, and they were right. Everyone has different setups, so improvements I'm sure will vary, but when I pulled off the line right after these were installed, my tires screeched with just a touch of the accelerator. The products in the box are top quality, and it looked like a very simple installation. But as I get older (lazier) I like less and less to crawl under a car, so I had a professional install them. It cost me $50 and took less than 30 minutes. So, for a cost of under $200, I have a great product, more acceleration, and a smoother sounding exhaust. I have absolutely no complaints.
