    Features & Details

    • Improves Exhaust Flow and Sound
    • 409 Stainless Steel Construction
    • Cut & Clamp on Design
    • Reuses Stock Catalytic Converters
    • Fits 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs
    Improves Exhaust Flow. Improve your V6's exhaust flow and give it a raspier, racier sound to get it the respect it deserves with this clamp-on X-Pipe from Ford Racing. The stock catalytic converters flow pretty well, but the whole system can deliver more power and a better sound when the exhaust gas pressure is balanced by replacing your factory hybrid H-Pipe with this free-flowing, high-quality X-Pipe.

    Reuses Stock Cats. The installation of the Ford Racing X-Pipe requires no welding. Simply cut your factory hybrid H-Pipe out and clamp your new X-Pipe in its place. Best of all, it reuses the factory catalytic converters saving you money.

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

    Application. This Ford Racing Clamp On X-Pipe is a specifically designed for use on the 2011-2013+ V6 Mustangs.

    Note. Stock 2011 V6 Mustangs come stock with a Mid Pipe that resembles both the H-Pipe and X-Pipe designs. This hybrid Mid Pipe was created by Ford to help add additional power and sound to the V6 straight out of the factory. This aftermarket X-Pipe will further help you reach maximum air-flow equaling additional power.

    Would I have to tune my car again with this part? So I got a mustang v6 2013 with the 91 performance tune CAI and axle backs. Would I have update my tune again , if I get this product? Thanks. Javier

    JaviGrandlux

    • No, I had the same set up on my 2011 v6 and no adjustment to the tuner were needed. You will love this pipe. Better sound and a great mid range power boost. Hunter 1

    is this product pretty much ford's version to the bbk shorty off-road x-pipe? i would just get the bbk x-pipe but it's illegal to use in NY and i don't want the hassle of swapping things in and out each time i need it inspected. i have already bought the roush axle backs and now i want the bbk long tube headers but dont want to drop another $400 on the catted x-pipe from bbk. so will this x-pipe work "the same" as the shorty x-pipe from bbk?

    buffalomustang716

    • The Ford racing x pipe used the stock cats, so it should pass any inspection. As to headers there are new shorty headers available that will join up nicely to this pipe and still give a great HP boost while keeping you legal. I will tell you this. My 2011 MCA with a 3.31 gear, CAI, and BAMA tuner set in performance mode had been running consistent 13.5's and the x pipe addition has dropped me to down to 13.3-well worth the less than 200.00 spend.

    • The Ford Performance Cut and Clamp X-Pipe will use the supplied clamps to attach the X-Pipe to the stock downpipes with the catalytic converters. The X-Pipe will be attached to the over-axle pipes using the stock clamps.

      Wakes up the V6

      I really like how the X-Pipe compliments the BBK shorties and the FRPP Sport Axle Backs. It makes a deeper sound to it and exactly what I was looking for. Very impressed with the craftsmanship and feel this should have been standard on the 3.7. You can’t go wrong with these and after hearing them in person, you will buy them too. My only regret is that I should have bought these years earlier. If this X-Pipe is in your Saved for Later folder, buy them now, you won’t regret it

      Sounds great!!!!!

      I have bbk shorty headers and pipes bomb axle backs. This Ford x pipe REALLY ties it all together. It sounds awesome! I little bit more low end torque also. Only negative thing was I wasted a weeknight trying to install and could get it to fit right. Had a shop install for $50 and well worth it.

      Not too bad but don't expect much

      I have this with a Flowmaster force ll, an airaid CAI, and a tuner and I'm loving the way the car is set up. However, for the mid pipe itself, don't expect too much a difference from these. They're okay but they don't really add any significant sound to the exhaust other than maybe a deeper tone and it really doesn't add much power. I like them and, overall, they're a decent mod for adding into the exhaust setup.

      Great X pipe for the price. Not a lot of sound added but with a catback exhaust, it will help with back pressure. My opinion, get it welded.

      Works Wonders with Straight-Through Mufflers

      If you have a straight-through muffler this will clean up some of that harshness, and makes the overall exhaust note smoother yet louder. Really brought my Roush A/B to life. Minimal difference in power, but I did feel a little something extra in the mid-range; I anticipate it helping more once I do a tune down the road. Opted to have it welded at a shop. Good buy, would recommend.

      Time to Rumble!

      Had the X Pipe installed at Exhaust Pros in Aurora, CO. They charged me $85.00 for the install and they welded the pipe in. I drag race (bracket race) my 2013 V6 Mustang at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison CO. We're at 5800 feet ABOVE sea level and we run low to mid 15's at altitude due to the lack of air. Every mod that helps the engine breathe is worth the expense if you're serious about competition like my family and I are. I noticed an immediate change in the sound of the car, a deeper, cleaner, less "tuner car" sound. We race again one Friday and we'll see how this improves my time on the ¼ mile track. If this improves performance by 10-15 hp (I have Flowmaster 40's Axle Backs as well), then it'll be put on the other two Mustangs we race. I have BBK Shorty headers that go on next.

      Nice upgrade

      After reading all the reviews and watching a couple videos I finally decided to get these pipes. To start off the box came in a lil torn up but the pipes were in perfect condition I got them installed at a total price of $227 including tax not so bad bc I understand it's not easy putting cutting and fitting pipes on a car. After about 100 miles or so you will definitely be able to feel a difference in your stang especially when putting your foot down on it . I won't say the pipes did a good power increase but I definitely feel my stang accelerating a lot quicker and as for the sound I would say it all depends on your exhaust setup if you still running on stock exhaust I don't think you will get much out of these x pipes except maybe a slight difference in tone. Now for me on the other hand im not running stock exhaust except headers which is my next upgrade. My current mods are bama custom tunes, kandn cai, roush axle backs, and of course ford x racing pipes. The pipes for me definitely took out the raspy sound from my axle backs and with just the right pressure on the gas my stang growls not like v8 but close to it but wen i step on it I can hear and feel the x pipes flowing well and gives my stang a mean sound to it thanks a lot AM and AMR automotive for the install! Up next bbk headers!!

      Good quality but...

      This X-pipe looks good and sounds good, however the installation is a little tricky. There is a complete lack of instructions and believe it or not that would be useful. There is some guess work that a few simple instructions could clear up. have had to take it off twice to get it to seal up correctly. I will eventually have these welded up and then I am sure I would like these more.

      The cut and clamp x-pipe made my 3.7 come alive! The shop decided to weld the entire unit instead of cutting and clamping which I agreed, it's a better way to go. I like my new sound! Thanks A.M.

      Cut and clamp x pipe

      After reading a lot of reviews I decided to purchase the Ford perfomance cut and clamp x pipe from American muscle ,it's easy to install and no need to weld just like it says cut and clamp ,no exhaust leaks whatsoever and perfect fit ,the sound changes just a little from the factory h/x hybrid stock pipe,but the x pipe screams and turns head after 3k rpms, and the power you can feel it right away if you have a nice set up. I have a 14 red v6 with Bbk shorty headers ,airaid cai and borla touring catback exhaust and this x pipe made the final touch love the sound of this combination, I have raced a few turbo cars including the bmw 335i and have beat them by more than 3 car lengths and that's with out a tune ,my next purchase will be bama tune .thanks American muscle for the fast shipping and awesome quality parts for my v6

      Ford Racing X-pipe

      Have to say it was a great choice to get this part installed. To be honest initial startup doesn't really have too much of a difference in tone but give it a couple 100 miles and that'll change. I have some other bolt ons that in turn really give it a nice rumble at 3k rpms and higher. For the Roush exhaust specifically it cleans up the higher pitched note you get at about 3500 rpms and higher. I recommend it for sure.

      BEAUTIFUL exhaust note. Great value mod.

      I have the Pypes pype bomb axle back and that exhaust was really loud and raspy. After installing the X pipe it is a night and day difference! The exhaust tone is much more smooth and mellow, and you can tell the exhaust flows much better over stock due to less back pressure you can feel when driving and by the exhaust note. It is much more bearable now and sounds much better and less (ricer). When giving the car gas, it is more effortless to get going. My install cost was $100. 100 worth the money. You can tell how garbage the factory hybird pipe is after installing. Best of all, you can use stock cats, buy some BBK shorty headers, and have a really nice non headache free V6 with a fantastic sound :)

      Rasp Eliminator!

      California is super strict when it comes to smog so I can't touch my cats only legal shorty headers and mid pipe. With that being said this was the way to go. I have pype bomb axle backs and they can really give a blasting raspy sound. This X pipe eliminated that harsh blasting sound and is now just nice and deep all around. Deeper at cruising speeds, revs, popping sound, etc. As far as power gain goes it is slightly noticeable. A bit more "get up" but nothing crazy. The shop did these for $60 in 26mins. Happy with the product and what it did to the sound!

      I'm ganna give it to you straight

      Don't look on YouTube to see how it sounds if you install them you literally you have to hear it I person and actually feel it to experience the change in sound. I took these to my local muffler shop and literally I went to grab breakfast and came back and it was done. They didn't need the clamps because they welded them and sealed it up really good. Installation cost: $85. Before I had a horrible exhaust leak and when I took off there was a nasty blah type of splatter sound. The x pipes get rid of the sound and smoothen it up. The car wasn't as loud but sounded so much better. I didn't notice the performance gain but something was different. To get rid of the note buy these!!!! I recommend them to anyone. I just installed shorty headers from BBK with it all my mustang sounds deeper cleaner. I love turning heads and with this product you definitely will.

      Definitely changed the sound

      I had this installed by Ford this past weekend and it took much longer than I thought it would - almost 2 hours. The tech even brought me out to my car and showed me why it would take long. The tech was not a huge fan of the clamp that was provided. He took it off and put on a more heavier duty one (he showed me that as well). The sound is definitely louder, but there is an initial rattle when I first put the car into reverse or drive. It goes away once I start driving. All in all, it adds a nice sound, it just wish the install wouldn't have taken so long and cost so much.
