      Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation


      • 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.

        Works great

        Good cheap X pipe if you want to keep the stock cats but have a better deeper sound.

        A few thoughts

        It had a small bend in the pipe when I received it, but I believe this happened in shipping. Most reviews said that this product would deepen the exhaust note a bit, "refine" the sound, and help minimize drone. Being a fairly affordable part, I decided to go for it. My initial reaction is that it didn't do much to change the tone. What WAS noticeable was the effect that it had on the resonance in the car. I have straight through mufflers, and I'm pretty lucky that they don't have a lot of drone, but what I did have was drastically less. I guess that's what the "refinement" meant in everyone else's reviews. It made the system sound less like an aftermarket kit while maintaining volume and tone. It sounds much smoother, and helps reduce that "ugh, it's a v6" sound. As far as performance gains go, there's really not that much difference in power, I honestly didn't notice any. If performance gains are what you're looking for, spring for the BBK catted x-pipe or an off-road setup that deletes the cats. As far as fitment goes I cant really say anything, the guy I hired made it WAY more difficult than it needed to be, but he still said it was an easy install despite the small modifications he had to make to it. Overall, I don't think this product has too much affect on sound and performance unless you have supporting mods like mufflers or headers. If you're on the fence between this and another mod, go ahead and do something else, but if you need an x-pipe and want to keep the cats, this is the product for you.

        3 2011 V6 - cloudbuster Installation Time: Shop Install Installation Cost: 0-$100

        The good, bad ugly

        With Cold Air, larger TB and Magnaflow axle back the sound was better, a little smoother but nothing notable on performance. The fit was a problem as they were a tad to long and extended to far at the front joint behind the resonators so they had to be cut and trimed and welded. My tech who as done many of these says no two are alike. It's not so much the X-Pipe as it is the stock Ford installs can be slightly different. Some go right in and can use that clamps and some like mine will not..

        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 for the price

        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.

      Hi, I have the Roush axel back exhaust on my 13 V6 Mustang Convertible. While the sound is great, there is a lot of drone / cabin noise. Will this X pipe reduce the interior noise? Jim

      • This will not reduce drone caused by your axle back.

      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

      • 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? 2 answers
