    Hey, guys. Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with this Heartthrob Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete H-Pipe, available for 2015 and up GT Mustangs. The Resonator Delete H-Pipe from Heartthrob is going to replace the factory resonator that is restricting to the new GT and adds weight. It's gonna be a good option for someone that's looking for an aluminized steel mid-pipe that isn't gonna cost a ton but that is going to open up a good amount of sound easily and quickly. Swapping out the Resonator mid-pipe for a traditional style mid-pipe like this H-Pipe is a way to get around having to purchase an entirely new exhaust system in order to change the tone of the exhaust without having to change anything else. The factory Resonator style mid-pipe is basically another muffler on the S550 GT in muffle sound and power. So by eliminating this muffler or Resonator style mid-pipe and replacing it with a standard type of mid-pipe that is free flowing like this H-Pipe, you're getting rid of a bottleneck and you can expect a good amount more volume from the exhaust even without changing the factory axle vac or any other components of the exhaust. So this H-Pipe does reuse the factory caps so you're still going to be smog legal and still pass emissions and get the change in sound that I've talked about so that should give you a good idea of just how restrictive the factory mid-pipe is. This is an aluminized steel H-Pipe, and material is something that you should always consider when you're shopping for exhaust. So the material of the mid-pipe is really gonna drive the price point, and this H-Pipe being aluminized steel is what helps to keep it more price friendly than some of the other options that are out there. Aluminized tubing has some upsides and some downsides as well. Like I already said, this type of material is going to be more budget friendly so there's your upside right there. The sacrifice that you make here is that the metal is prone to rust and have corrosion over time, especially if it sees harsh road conditions. But I've got something that you're not concerned about or you live on the West Coast or your car isn't a daily, then it's not gonna be a big deal to you. If you're looking for a long-lasting system that can handle the weather or that sees some of the awesome road salt that we see here in VA, you're better off shopping for a 304 stainless steel system instead. This is a Cut and Clamp mid-pipe, which means that you cut out and remove your factory Resonator and clamp the H-Pipe into place, and that's how you're able to raise your stock caps [SP] but it also means that you can't pair it with your stock muffler or you can run it with an aftermarket axleback. So no matter what axleback you have, this H-Pipe will work for you, and either way, you still maintain the use of the stock caps and you still have an improvement in sound. So this is an H-Pipe, and like a typical H-Pipe, you can expect more of a deeper tone from your exhaust and more volume. If you want more of a louder raspy note as opposed to the deep sound, you should stick with an X-Pipe instead, and there are a few Cut and Clamp X-Pipes that are currently available. H-Pipes tend to be a little deeper sounding while X-Pipes produce a bit more volume with that raspy note. On a scale of one to five, with five being the loudest and keeping in mind that you're still gonna have your stock caps and axleback, I'd rate this H-Pipe as a two. Of course, if you ever change your axleback or even your headers for that matter, the H-Pipe is gonna change in sound and volume so just keep that in mind. Depending on which axleback you end up choosing, you can be looking at more of a three or four on a loudness meter so if you don't want a system that's too loud, just keep in mind your mid-pipe when you're shopping for other components. Another thing to mention here is that a great side effect of replacing that Resonator with an H-Pipe is dropping a good amount of weight. The factory Resonator adds some pounds to the S550. So by replacing it with a simple H-Pipe you're going to be dropping about 25 pounds, which is just another little plus even if you aren't trying to drop weight. As far as price goes with this H-Pipe, it is currently the only separate H-Pipe that's available for the S550, and you're looking at spending between $100 and $200 for it. Like I mentioned earlier, there are other X-Pipes that are available and other brands, other materials and at other price points if you want to shop around for something else. Either way, swapping out your factory Resonator for an aftermarket H-Pipe delete is a fast and easy way to totally change your exhaust. As for the install, you do have some flexibility here. Like the name suggests, there will be some cutting involved but nothing too difficult. If you take your time, it's gonna take about two hours to complete, maybe less, and I'm gonna call this two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter but mainly just because of the cutting that's involved. The H-Pipe does come with brand new clamps for the rear, but here we used the factory front clamps but you always have the option of clamping the front and welding the rear of the pipe if you want, but that's up to you or your shop. A lot of people like welding in the rear better but that's not something that you have to do. So wrapping this up here, this is aluminized steel Resonator Delete H-Pipe that can work with either the factory axleback or an aftermarket one. It also works with the factory caps and it's gonna free up some sound and volume from your GT. It is a great way to inexpensively change your exhaust note. As always, you can check it out more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

    If you are looking for a deeper exhaust sound instead of the raspier exhaust sound which is better the H pipe or the X pipe?

    RogerS

    • For the deepest sound, you will want the Heartthrob Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete - H-Pipe. H-pipes will produce the deep sound and X-pipes will be a little raspier.

    I'm looking at buying this heartthrob h-pipe. I currently have a muffler delete on my 2017 mustang gt. I'm wondering how much louder this h-pipe/resonator delete would make my car and what it would do to the tone of the exhaust? whats the noise difference between my already muffler delete vs my muffler delete and adding this h-pipe/resonator delete to it? Would adding this h-pipe/resonator delete be TOO loud? I'm looking for the difference on a scale of 1-10. Also I live in California.

      H Pipe

      Easy Install. Installed by myself, However an extra hand would speed up the process. Could have knocked it out in an hour with two sets of hands. I had to take down the back half of the exhaust in order to fit it in. I have muffler deletes as well to go with this. The muffler deletes by themselves were not very loud, but adding this in makes the car scream. That is why I am giving it a full five stars for loudness. It by itself with stock mufflers wont be near as loud. Well worth the money.

      Not as simple as cut an clamp on the '18

      I ordered and received the H-pipe and installed it tonight. After removing my exhaust and cutting my resonator off at the correct length I attempted to test fit and it was a no go. The h-pipe was too long so I had to cut a few inches off the front of it a half inch at a time (so I didn't end up cutting it too short) to get the rest of the exhaust system to line up correctly under the car. Heartthrob needs to actually try and install one of these on a 2018 so they can see what I'm talking about. I'm leaving 5 stars only because I don't think American Muscle should get a poor review.

      Nice sound.

      To install this H-pipe: Remove your exhaust back of the cats. It is very easy to do on your garage floor with the help of a friend. Lay the exhaust on a level surface. Lay the new H-pipe on top of the exhaust system. Match-mark the cut location. It is SO easy to see where to cut. Anybody can do it. I made the cut with my portable band saw, but just about anything will do. Install the H-pipe onto the cats. Then, install the two pipes with mufflers you cut off of the resonator. That's it. TOO easy. Took an hour while we were joking around. The sound is GREAT. Stomp on it in S gear and just smile. Sweet. Buy this pipe or the 301 stainless H. The sound is boss!

      2018 mustang review and tips

      The instructions that come with the h pipe are not the same for the 2018. When you cut the stock resonator out you will see a great shield that is suppose welded on in the freonl front and metal strap in the back. If you cut the pipes directly behind the weld it will be almost perfect and you don't have to worry about grinding the weld off. Install the h pipe and test fit and make final trimming i'f required. As for sound on the 2018. At idle it is very mellow and deep. Give it some gas and she wakes up. Sounds great. Not too loud but a great deep tone. Roll the windows up and everything is quite worth zero drone. Best exhaust mod you can do if you want a little bit louder and deep muscle car sound.

      Great mod!

      I was looking for something to deepen the tone on my GT PP. The previous owner had already replaced the mufflers but the car was still not as "vocal" as I would have liked. I actually expected this to wake it up more than it actually does and was worried it would be too much. I am very happy with the slightly deeper note and about 15 increase in volume. I've had numerous compliments that the sound is great but not obnoxiously loud. I installed this H-pipe on a lift and it literally took me 15 minutes. Fit and finish is excellent. It's a nice snug fit and slid right on the OEM pipes without too much effort. The price point on this is another plus compared to all the other pipes out there. VERY HAPPY!

      Love this H pipe

      I had a SR performance x pipe on my 17 gt. I took it into to local shop to have this put on instead. Much nicer tone. Much deeper exhaust note with less rasp. I should have done this pipe from the start. I had mine welded, but I am sure the clamps would be fine. Awesome pipe!!

      Not as raspy as an X-pipe

      I had a Ford racing X-pipe on my last S550 with Roush mufflers. Sounded great, especially past 5,000 RPM but it was a bit too loud and raspy around town. My new S550 has Active Exhaust and the H-pipe definitely increases the volume in all settings, but its overall not as loud as the X-pipe and the "raspiness" is reduced to a nice degree. Overall tone is much mellower and "burbly" if you will. Install is as easy as any H-pipe or X-pipe.

      Sounds great!

      I get compliments everywhere I go in my '18 GT with this h pipe installed. I don't even bother to tell anyone that the rest of the exhaust except for this Hearthrob pipe is stock. It gives is a deeper bass sound than the x pipe I was gonna install, helps to make the car sound more like a muscle car for surel and the fit and finish were excellent, it was an easy install.

      Great Product

      The product itself was a bit hard to install on my 2018 Mustang, had to cut a small portion of it in order to make it fit. However, the quality of the material was top notch. Even my exhaust shop was surprised since it had a nice polished look, compared to others. I decided to weld the H pipe rather than clamp it to be on the safe side and it work out perfectly.

      H-Pipe > X-Pipe

      I have the h-pipe paired with Flowmaster Outlaw series mufflers and the sound is amazing. There is a beautifully deep tone until a high rev in which the raspiness of the engine takes over.
