Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and welcome to my review of the Heartthrob Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe, available for your 2015 and up Mustang GT. If you're looking for a mod that's going to deliver more power and more sound for south of 200 bucks, well, guess what, the Heartthrob Resonator Delete is going to be for you. Now as we heard with the sound clips, guys, this thing is definitely going to change the sound of your exhaust system, even with those factory mufflers in place. Easy two out of five on my one to five or one to wake the neighbors scale. Factor in an aftermarket axleback down the road, and this thing is going to be loud. It's going to give you that raspy race car tone you can expect from an X-Pipe, and again, it's going to free up some power by eliminating that restrictive factory resonator. Now, my one nitpick with this is it's aluminized steel. It's two and a half inch mandrel bend. I mean, you can't really mess up an X-Pipe for the most part. It's pretty simple by design, but by using that aluminized steel, sure they're keeping the cost down and everything like that, but it's not going to be as good at reducing corrosion as some of the more pricier materials such as stainless steel 409 or even 304. With that being said, though, this is one of the most affordable products when it comes to X-Pipes or H-Pipes on the site here. Speaking of H-Pipes, if you prefer that old school muscle car rumble, Heartthrob does offer the same exact Resonator Delete cut and clamp pipe, but with an H-Pipe configuration, it's going to lower that thumping tone a little bit, going to get rid of some of that rasp. A good idea, if you plan on pairing it up with a more aggressive axleback. But getting down to install, guys, again, cut and clamp, so, obvious statement of the day here, you do have to cut when installing this. Make sure you have a Sawzall or something similar on hand. A nice, fresh, metal blade is the best advice I can give you. Safety tip, of course make sure you have your eyeglasses or safety glasses on hand before getting started, and it's going to be a two out of three on my one to three scale of difficulty. It's not exactly hard but because you have to cut, we'll knock it up to a three. And maybe about an hour or two from start to finish in overall time of install. So to wrap things up here guys, here's my thoughts with the Heartthrob, right? This thing is affordable, again, under 200 bucks. In the world of S500 exhaust systems, that's a very big rarity. And it delivers, as we heard. It's going to give you some more sound, it's going to free up some power, and it's going to do so without breaking the bank. So be sure to check out Heartthrob Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete for your S550 right here, at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improves Exhaust Flow. Add even more horsepower and torque to the rear wheels of your coyote Powered S550 Mustang by replacing your restrictive factory Resonator Mid-pipe with a free flowing Heartthrob X-Pipe. A Heartthrob X-Pipe will greatly improve your pony's exhaust flow for an increase in overall performance.

Race Car Growl. Heartthrob's free flowing X-Pipe for the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs not only increases power, but it also adds a loud raspy, race car growl to the sound of your exhaust with its modern "X" crossover pipe design.

Reuses Stock Cats. This Heartthrob X-Pipe requires cutting and removing the factory Mid Pipe resonator and clamps in place reusing the stock clamps. Best of all it reuses the factory catalytic converters saving you money and keeping you smog legal at the same time.

Durable Construction. Constructed from free-flowing mandrel bent aluminized steel tubing for long lasting durability, this Heartthrob Cut and Clamp Mid Pipe will improve exhaust flow to provide a significant increase in power and sound.

Application. The Heartthrob Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe is specifically designed for use on the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine.

will this x pipe work with the borla atak catback system?

cuttad

  • The Borla Ataks and the X-Pipe will not be a direct bolt on because of the different piping size. You may have to do some modifications in order for these to work together.

    Great sound!

    I have flowmaster axle backs and this made the whole exhaust come alive under heavy throttle. Definitely not as loud as I'd expect. It'll turn heads, but in a positive "oh that v8 sounds awesome" way. Not "look at that dbag trying to compensate" way.

    Heartthrob Mustang

    WOW, it wasn't to hard to put on. I used jack stands and floor jack. I'm 65 so it might have been a little hard if I wasn't as cool as I am. I have a convertible Race Red bad *** 2015 mustang, this X pipe made it even meaner. I have a lot of American Muscle extras (almost all but the blower assy.) on this beauty. Love it, recommend it to any 65 year old out there. It is worth the price and time!

    Loud!!!

    If you want your S550 to scream, buy this x-pipe. I love it!! With a nice muffler delete package, you will be getting tickets in no time! Lol. When you drive regular and shift normally, it has a nice and deep tone, but when you get on it everyone on the next street will hear you coming!

    Great part for the price

    I wanted a cheap xpipe to make my car louder and this did the job just right. The install wasn't bad at all and my car sounds amazing now. I was skeptical at first, I never bought a product made by this company but I am very happy with my decision and can't wait to throw longtubes headers on with my setup.

    Better Sound

    I bought this combined with the Flowmaster Oulaw axlebacks and it sounds great. Sounds awesome on idle and gives you the nice raspy sound when you hit higher RPMs. Didn't take too long to install and fits perfect.

    Very happy with the end result. Gave my car a deeper growl. Exactly what I wanted without being obnoxious. Can be tricky installing alone, recommend a friend to help. I used a floor jack and jack stands, a lift would have made it a 20 minute job.

    Heartthrob "x-pipes"

    I purchased this product about a week after I got the roush axleback exhaust wasn't gonna go any further but decided a bit louder and all would be good. It took about 2 and a half hours to install on my lift but took everything from mid back off. After I was done I cranked my car up and was not expecting nothing near the sound that came out. It was perfect 5 times what I thought it would be so needless to say that I'm more than happy with this purchase along with the roush axleback exhaust. Would recommend to any one great combination sound and quality more than 5 stars. When your driving down the road everyone looks now and definitely when your 3000 rpm or above your heard from a good distance. If you don't want load and great sound you might just stick with the axleback only it perfect for normal daily drivers, but I live them togeather they where meant to be togeather.

    Better Sound and Performance...

    Shipping was fairly quick and installation was a breeze. Instructions are pretty straight forward. I did this in my garage with the rear of the car lifted on a large floor jack and jack stands for safety. Did not even need to remove the rear exhaust, only loosen the rear hangers in order to slide the catback into the new xpipe. Took me probaby 45 mintues from start to finish. I still have the stock muffers, but this gave it a much better growl and you can tell the engine can breath much better now. Very pleased with this purchase. Thanks AM.

    This is a great investment for your mustang if you want to be able to hear the cars exhaust note without it being overwhelming, has very great sound and with an added muffler system you get an even better sound

    Heartthrob cut and clamp resonator delete - x pipe 2015 GT

    Instantly moved the power band up with the back pressure from the resonators gone. But from mid range to peak rpm it will rev so quick to the limiter you really have to watch your tack if you want to make a decent quarter mile time. After the install I ran my car down at the local drag strip and cut a 12.99 second quarter mile run. But I also have a BAMA tune and Airaid cold air kit and Roush axel back exhaust. that is why it now runs high 12 second quarter mile times. The X-pipe was the missing link to the recipe. With this install and giving the computer enough time to tune into the new exhaust free flowing X-pipe was the best dollar for dollar money I have spent another words it has un covered the monsters potential under the hood.
