Will the Kook Catted mid pipe bolt to this exhaust. I am installing Kook 1 7/8 stainless long tubes and catted mid pipe and i already have this exhaust. Does anyone no if this combination will work?


  • Hi, This Cat Back system will not work with a Kooks mid pipe because this system has a 3in connection and X-pipe the Kooks mid pipe is a 2.75in OEM connection i suggest using the Kooks Performance Cat-Back Exhaust. Here is the link

Will this fit the stainless works 1 7/8 inch long tube headers?


  • The Ford Performance Cat Back Exhaust will work with the Stainless Work 1 7/8" headers as long as you purchase the proper adapter pipes.

Will the 3 inch diameter and better flow sacrifice torque for higher RPM HP?


  • The 3 inch Ford Performance Cat Back Exhaust will decrease back pressure and allow for more fuel and air in the combustion cylinder, without being restricted by the exhaust. The exhaust with should not sacrifice hp/tq in the higher rpm. If your Mustang is stock or lightly modified, this exhaust may reduce back pressure so significantly that power could be lost.

    Very deep note

    Good product. Exhaust note is very deep, not too loud for cruising around town but is plenty loud at WOT. Make sure if using jack stands you can get a minimum of 24" as the over axle pipes need all the space you can get to get the stock pipes off and new ones one. Excellent improvement over simply axle backs for my supercharged stang as it feels less restricted when accelerating. Overall very happy. I installed this by myself hence a little extra time to install.

    Took me and a buddy about 3 hours to do in front of the house on jack stands. Everything fit great but the muffler hangers had to be tweaked a bit to line up in the bumper openings. But I love the sound with the x-pipe, definitely gets noticed driving around town.

    Perfect compliment to the GT500!

    This FRPP catback is the way to go for your GT500! I've owned a Roush Stage 3 and that exhaust was too much of an attraction. This kit has the perfect balance of "pure business" when either in low or high revs... 100 satisfied, and American Muscle was on point with their shipping and communication! Thanks fellas...

    Ford Racing Catback

    This is not a stealthy exhaust system. You will get noticed. However the sounds emitted are glorious! Steven McQueen would be envious. At idle and low rpm it is VERY deep and baritone. Rev it up to about 3,500-4000, back off, and it cackles and pops. Above 4,000 it smooths out and gets more mellow. No drone at any rpm, but it does growl at certain speeds, like 60-70 mph. I did have an issue with getting the tailpipes to line up/match correctly. Oh, and you will need to loosen/lower the cross brace between trailing arms -- it's the ONLY way to get tailpipes and mufflers on.

    Great system, Loud and Nice Fit!

    First off, be prepared to work a little getting your old set off. The bolts on mine were upside down at the cat and Rusted up, after messing with it for a while I ended up cutting the clamps off. You'll need one set from your old system, so save the ones at your muffler, which were much easier to get off. Had to jack the car up as high as my floor jack would go (about 2 feet), so if you have access to a lift, use it. Once I got the old set off, the new one went in quick. I followed the instructions and left everything loose until I had the tips exactly where I wanted them. I then had help holding them in place while tightening everything down. I couldn't be happier with the loud rumble this system makes. I'll just say if you don't want loud, this set-up is not for you.

    Fitment is not that great

    Sounds great, but every time I hit a bump the exhaust hits under the car. I've taken the car to two different exhaust shops and over the last 4 months and neither shop could position the over the axle pipe to where it doesn't hit either the spare tire well or the rear end housing. Other than that, I love it! I had a performance shop install this initially while the installed my lowering springs and panhard bar. When they couldn't maneuver the piping so that it doesn't hit, I took to one exhaust shop and they had to reposition an exhaust hanger. It was still hitting under the car so I took it back to the performance shop and they had me take it another exhaust shop and they spent almost 3hrs cutting and welding the exhaust because they were unable to maneuver the piping to where it wouldn't hit under the car. When they were finished this time it did great for a few weeks, then it started hitting under the car again. It still hits under the car now and I'm considering purchasing a catback from kooks to go along with my kooks longtubes/xpipe.
