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.

      I live along the Gulf Coast with lots of rain and the warm humid air from the Ocean. How does this pipe hold up with corrosion as compared to a stainless steel one?

      • The Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete H-Pipe is constructed of aluminized Steel which may not be as durable as traditional stainless steel, but can easily expect to see many years of use from the Mid-pipe before needing to to consider any form of maintenance or replacement.

      Hi, is any noticiable diffrence between X-pipe and H-pipe, with sound or power gain?

      • Gains would be similar between these options, however, the H pipe will create a deeper tone and the X pipe will create a raspy higher tone.

      I have a 16 GT Convertible completely stock. If I add this H-pipe only, will it provide an increase is power. How will the sound be compared to an all stock exhaust system. Thanks.

      • This H-pipe will not really provide a huge performance gain but will increase some. As far as sound this will give a slightly deeper sound then stock.

      I have a Gibson 3” catback w/ x-pipe stock headers. What h-pipe would fit my exhaust?

      • This mid pipe has a 2.75 inch in diameter piping, so you would need some modification to make that work with your 3 inch exhaust. As long as you find a mid pipe with 3 inch piping it will fit.

          Sounds amazing!

          Very easy install and the sound is amazing! Factory exhaust baffles still work and can be put in the quiet mode when needed. I keep mine in track mode and love the way it sounds. Gives the sound a deeper rumble and wide open throttle is amazing.

          Delete H-Pipe

          I had a local muffler shop install. Instead of dropping entire system they opted to cut while on the vehicle. This made it very difficult to fit pipe properly. The end result was to remove the rear part of mufflers and pipe, grind off the heat shield and then reinstall. The overall installation took over two hours to complete. However shop only charged $100.00. They also welded the rear for extra support. The sound is amazing and exactly what I wanted.

          Dyno numbers

          Didn’t know this h pipe was going to increase hp. YouTube videos everywhere puts the average stock hp at 420 to the wheels. Went to my local tuner shop since they had an event for dynos. The car put down 438,439,444 temp that day was 60 degrees. This is my only modification to the car.

          Great sound and quiet mode still works!

          I installed this H-pipe about 2 weeks ago on my 2018 GT with active exhaust. The difference is perfect. Quiet mode is still very very quiet which is nice. The big difference is in Sport or Track. It is significantly louder. This is the best of both worlds, Quiet mode still works perfectly and Track mode is much louder.

          Great Sound but HOA hates me now

          Please be aware that the overall loudness of your 2018 GT exhaust will Increase about 20 - 30. First the Pro's. Wow, this is the classic muscle car tone and roar I was looking for. Car pulls harder too in lower gears. However, in (I drive the manual 2018) gears 5 and 6 the car sounds very tame (this is good), until you down shift to third and punch it. WooHoo! The only con is I am now concerned I may be hunted down by the HOA. The cold start for my GT completely stock was a 2.25 out of 5. The cold start now is pushing 3.5 , so not insignificant if your neighbors can cause trouble. Oh, one last thing. Measure carefully. I had to cut a couple of times and did the install myself on jack stands. Rough afternoon but fun.

          I don't think my neighbors like me anymore.

          Paired with the Rouch axle back exhaust this baby GROWLS. If you're looking for the bass sound of the classic muscle car this is the one! Also, it may just be my imagination but it feels like I gained some torque at about 5500 rpm. It's not ridiculously loud either so I haven't drawn attention from the police...so far.

          Had a shop weld it in. Cost me $60. He told me I better take the old resonator they cut out with me in case it's too loud for my taste, I already have the slp axle back installed so no mufflers left except the cats. His exact words while smiling were "Well, they're gunna here you comin"!

          Sounds hollow

          The product was delivered in fine fashion and promptly as AM always does. The install was simple but the result was different than I expected. Maybe that’s what I get for having expectations but I was hoping for that old school muscle sound paired with my Roush axle back as opposed to the ridiculously loud hollow annoying sound you get with an X pipe. Not much difference between the two to be honest. Maybe I just needs some time to get used to it but I personally am not liking the new sound with this H pipe although it is slightly better than the x pipe sound. Just my take on it. A lot of guys go with louder is better, I’m just not that way. The weight difference is quite apparent when you cut of the factory resonator but like I said the sound is a bit much and it also resonates quite bad at highway speeds. All depends on what you like. Good luck.
