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.

Hello, I own mustang gt2015 installed MagnaFlow: 19101 competition exhaust. The problem I'm struggling with is the high drone. Which part I can replace to reduce the drone? H pipe or axle exhaust ? Thank you

Abdulla

I have a couple questions, my first one is if I'm looking for more of a deep tone other than a raspy tone should I get an x pipe or h pipe. Next would be would this pair up and sound better with the roush axel back or the corsa sport axel back and would the install be the same between them

ErbStalk

  • First, if you are looking for a deeper tone over a raspy one, the H-pipe is how you want to go as the X-pipe will give a raspier tone. As far as what it is best mated up to, the Roush axle-back will give your vehicle an aggressive tone while being moderately loud. On the other hand, the Corsa Sport will give you a more high performance tone while being on the louder end of the scale.

If I get this along with SR performance muffler delete I will have to use a section of the stock piping to connect the two right?

mustangman

  • Hey Mustangman, Yes you would still use some of the original piping. Both require cutting and in between the pipes is where the stock system would still be used

    Very aggressive, deep, muscle car sound!!!

    I bought the Flowmaster Outlaw Series Axle-Back exhaust with the full intention of making my 2016 GT sound like a muscle car is supposed to sound. Let me tell you, they did the job! Now, there is a catch. I bought them in conjunction with the Heartthrob H-pipes, so I cannot tell you how they sound with the factory exhaust, but if you like a deep, throaty, loud exhaust, this is the way to go. The H-pipes were a must, because it gets rid of most of the raspiness you would get with either the factory mid-pipes or x-pipes (I know this based on AM's article on mid-pipes and various sound clips). I just love this combo on my S550. Everywhere I go, I am breaking necks and receiving many compliments. You will not go wrong with this exhaust and h-pipe combo. *PLEASE NOTE* This combo is not a perfect bolt on kit. There is approximately 11 to 12 inches between the h-pipe and axle-back. You will either (A) need to have an exhaust shop bend some pipe to extend it, or (B) mark and cut the factory exhaust to have a seamlessly bent exhaust. I would personally go with (B), but I did not want to cut my factory exhaust, so I had to go with option (A). All in all, it took about 2-3 hours at my buddy's shop to do the install (my buddy did most of the work). Everything looks and sound incredible.

    Sounds good

    It definitely makes a difference in the sound. I don't think it made it any louder, just a more defined exhaust note. It actually sounds like a muscle car now, even with stock mufflers. Used clamps for now and there's no rattles yet. Plan on welding when I decide on mufflers. Lost a star because of fit and finish, had dents in it and large metal slivers inside where welds were made. Had to be broken out with chisel. It is on the cheap side for midpipe so I didn't expect the greatest. Doesn't effect performance and I don't see how spending more money would make it sound any better. If you're looking to make a change at low cost, you won't be disappointed with this.

    Great buy

    Bought this for my 2016Gt to open up my already existing roush axle backs and did it ever... Still keeps the deep sound I wanted that came with the roush but at WOT look out cause it screams. At cruising levels it's nice and deep and very little drone between 2-2500 rpm.... This is a must if you own a 15-16 gt if you wanna open up your exhaust !

    Great Sound with Roush Axelbacks (replacement my ford x-pipe)

    I had Roush axelback installed within a week of getting my car and I was happy with the sound/loudness of it. Then I put ford racing x-pipe and it was obnoxiously loud and annoying while driving at cruising speeds or normal driving conditions. I was considering putting the stock resonator back on my car but I decided to try HEARTTHROB h-pipe first since its the same length as the x-pipe. I did the install my self, only about 40 minutes with car ramps on my driveway. No issues with fit. The h-pipe is almost as loud as the x-pipe but the sound is much better. At idle and at cruising speeds is much more quite, rumble sound and sounds like a muscle car. Now my car sounds like a real muscle car and when I hit the gas pedal I feel like i'm getting better throttle response.

    Not what I expected

    Simple install and fit well with Kooks catted LT headers and magnapacks. Exterior of H-pipe looks exactly as advertised; however, the interior alignment of the cross-over pipe poorly done. Small portion of the ends of the cross-over pipe on both sides sticking out into the interior of the pipe with ragged edges. As for the sound, volume more or less the same level as the FRPP x-pipe I replaced it with, but much more raspy with more drone. Will be putting back the x-pipe.

    Let Down

    The expanded ends were not big enough to accept the exhaust pipe, so I had to widen flanges with a pliers. Once I had the H Pipe installed, I started the car to check for exhaust leaks. I found one! The weld in the H Pipe has a pin hole in it and moisture was shooting out like a squirt gun. Now I need to find some one to fix the weld....I have the factory mufflers and with the H Pipe the car now sounds like a Mustang should.

    Awesome! Exactly what I was looking for

    I took one star off for fit and finish, as it had a few large visible burrs on the inside welds. They were easy enough to remove with a pair of pliers. I had a small town shop install it for $45. I already had a Roush axleback exhaust, which was perfect if you want something that's louder and deeper than stock. But it wasn't quite loud enough for me. With this H-Pipe added to my Roush axlebacks, it is significantly louder on a cold startup, it "barks" loud enough that everyone in the parking lot can hear it. I have the 3.73 rear edn, and from 1500-3000 RPM on acceleration, it is very loud now. There is no way to drive this car quietly, it is just always loud, so be prepared for that with this and a pair of axlebacks. It doesn't give too bad of drone on the highway, but there is some, if you don't want any drone, just stick with Roush axlebacks.

    Heart throb H pipe

    I purchased the Heart Throb H pipe for my 2016 GT/CS and had it professionally installed and welded rather than using the clamp . It connects to the stock exhaust and is nicely low toned at crusing speed without any drone. Once I open it up it gives a great growl letting you and anyone else know it's ready. Up front I have the Roush cold ait intake. All together it's supposed to give about 15 to 20 more horses. I was thinking of installing a axle back but after hearing the way it sounds I probably won't.

    Added just the right amount of sound over stock

    The car was pretty quiet in stock form especially for a V8. This livened up the sound pretty noticeable in the lower rpm range. It took a few miles for the car to adjust before you notice the sound increase from stock. This is probably the cheapest mod you can do for sound before getting another exhaust.

    Keyword: "Throb"

    Installed the H-pipe addition/resonator-delete accompanied by a pair of Magnaflows typically offered at my local muffler shop where they welded up the whole package. This combination sounds better than any exhaust samples I've heard on YouTube or distributor websites. Lowered the tone tremendously (sounds like a late '60's big block) without drone and it opens up really beautifully under hard acceleration. No raspy tone at all, a small bit of grumble and pop on deceleration and I'd say about a 3.5 out of 5 on the loudness scale (not obnoxious but attention-getting). You can feel it in your chest and it has taken my driving fun factor up several notches. Exactly the classic muscle car sound I was looking for. Got the H-pipe for the deeper tone and increased torque in the lower RPM range as it is my daily driver and street machine. My favorite upgrade to-date.

    Found this upgrade was almost a necessity when coupled with the roush axle back exhaust. I would say it unleashed the potential of my exhaust set up, sounds aggressive and mean. Very quick and easy install at a shop for 50 bucks but simple enough to install yourself as well.

    Definitely a good stop gap or upgrade.

    This resonator delete makes a very subtle change to the volume of your exhaust system. It is a great mod if you plan on getting a full fledged somewhere down the line, but still want a little more tone and volume now. It is cheap, fits well, cuts weight, and is not hard to install. I did it by myself with some ramps in around 2 hours. If you're like me and you enjoy the stock sound of the car and only wish it were slightly louder than this should be perfect for you.

    Muscle car sound.

    Just received this today and had to get it installed the same day. I would have installed it myself but it was cheaper to have it installed rather than buying the tools. I paid $40 for install. I paired it with the Magnaflow RTR Street Spec and I must admit it that the sound is amazing. No drone, no rasp, just pure raw old school American muscle! deep tone. I must have turned it on at least 6 times while it was sitting in the driveway just to listen to the sound.
