Well I ordered the bbk shorty headers along with the pro chamber and the mac catback exhaist to put on my 01 gt. Right now it's at the shop and the people at the shop are chopping up the pro chamber because it is to long and the catback will not fit. The headers are a problem too. Bbk sent bolts that were to long and had to be cut down. The installation was going to cost $300 but as of right now I'm looking at $650 if nothing else goes wrong.Helpful (3)

2003 Saleen S281 Mustang
I did a lot of research and review before pulling the trigger on an off-road mid-pipe and the money you pay for the MAC Prochamber is worth every penny! I wanted the power of being catless, but not being obnoxiously loud either like some of these X/H pipe setups. I daily drive my Saleen when the weather is right, so I didn't want to have any drone or always being worried about getting pulled over for the loudness. Well the MAC Prochamber paired with Pypes M80 mufflers and 4" tips was exactly what I was looking for! The sound is great, it is a lot louder than my previous Catted X pipe setup but mostly, it's enjoyable and you can hear the car coming from blocks away. The torque/power you gain is also one of the best of the mid-pipes for these stangs. Definitely gives you that "throw you back in the seat" feeling. I may upgrade my mufflers to LM1's/ Stingers/ATAKS just to give it more growl, but either way I love this mid-pipe much more than any of the X/H pipes on the market!Helpful (7)

I replaced a bbk offroad x pipe with this i liked the bbk at times and it was LOUD but a little to raspy for me and would get crazy loud at like 2000 rpm even when driving slow and i always got dirty looks from people thinking i was driving fast when i wasn't i put in the prochamber and there is no more rasp and it has a much more old school sound too it very quiet inside the car which is nice and is fairly loud outside without being obnoxious and i feel like i gained some low end torque which i lost with the x pipe only complaint is I had to retap a few of the threads but overall very happyHelpful (8)

I would have given this a 5, but for a few issues. I have a 2003 Mach1. The minor issues with my vehicle were as follows: the hardware was missing 2 nuts. There are four sets of bolts to attach. Three have threaded flanges, the third requires nuts which were not supplied. I had to stop the installation to run to the hardware store. The next issue is that the placement of doggles for the O2 sensors were offf, luckily there was enough play in the harness, (drivers side front), to allow me to attach the sensor. Passenger side rear O2 could not be mounted in the stick bracket and I had to zip tie it out of the way. Just an FYI if your working with the 4.6 cobra motor be prepared for those issues. On the upside once the obstacles were overcome the performance was as advertised, car is much more aggressive and it sounds sweet. No regrets! 2 hour installHelpful (8)

Like a glove!!!
I had the MAC O/R X-pipe with the Magna-Pack Cat-backs, and it was loud, too loud for the cops. It had that snap from the x-pipe and it attracted alot of attention. I got the Pro-chamber and only had to swap out the crossover center section, and its still loud, but instead of that snap it has it's rumble back. Only took a half an hour. Very happy with the whole package, pricey, but worth it.Helpful (9)

the noise its great buuut...
the sound is 100 better and the exhaust note is just right but the fitment is questionable, the flange that connects to the manifold on the driver side is way too big that no matter how much you tighten it, it won't seal and it's quite loose. Just keep in mind that welding might be in order for better fitment. Also, either storage or handling could be better the connection tips bend really easy. Finally, for what it is, it's a little pricy and the craftsmanship is wanting. If you are looking for noise go for the x pipe its cheaper, equal performance and noiseHelpful (9)

I replaced my factory cat back with Borla Ataks. I wanted to be a little bit louder so i went ahead and purchased the BBK off road X-pipe, worst mistake i ever made. So i purchased the Mac Prochamber. This on the other hand has easily been one of the best upgrades i have made to my car! I got the loudness i wanted and get thumbs up for it. The BBK x-pipe all i got were dirty looks and people hating it. Overall i recommend this Prochamber to anyone!!Helpful (7)

This is exactly what my 04 cobra needed. I originally put the slp loudmouth 1 catback on it and it wasn't enough. So I did my research and bought the Mac prochamber and wow what a difference my car sounds awesome and gets plenty of compliments.Helpful (7)
Pairing up with hig flow cats i have flowmasters welded into my stock mid pipe, and the sound is nice, but i need a little bit more umph. Unfortunately in MA, I need to have cats to pass inspection. Would i be able to have hig flow cats welded into this mid pipe, and will it still give me that extra umph for exhaust tone and loudness with the high flow cats in? Thanks in advanced guys. And no, i do not want to switch mid pipes every year just for inspection!
jay281GT, Depending on the length of the aftermarket cats you choose, they should fit!, the sound change will be minimal with high flow, but a little quieter in my opinion. Any reliable exhaust shop should be able to make the necessary changes for you, if you do not have any local to you, We do have a few catted mid-pipe options for you! Hope this helps, Forrest
I was wondering will i need o2 sensor extensions and mil eliminators to install this any help would be appreciated
It depends on the year of your Mustang. If you have an 03-04 Mustang GT you will need the extensions. If you have a previous year then you don't. My 2001 GT sat perfectly, stretched but just the right amount.
Hello, Can this Pro Chamber mid pipe be hooked up to the MAC long tube headers? and if not, does MAC make a set for such headers? or can you recommend other options? Thank you!
This Pro Chamber mid-pipe will not be compatible with long tube headers due to them being designed to work with the factory exhaust manifold or shorty headers. We do carry these here that would work with the MAC long tube headers: https://www.americanmuscle.com/mac-shorty-prochamber-9904gt.html& https://www.americanmuscle.com/mac-offroad-pro-chamber-mid-pipe-9904-gt-cobra-w-long-tube-headers.html.
Is this interchangeable with Mac o/r x pipe?
The MAC Off-Road Pro Chamber Mid Pipe and X-Pipe are interchangeable.
Will this mid pipe work with mid length headers or does it only work with short headers?
Mid-length/tuned-length headers have the collectors in the same position so they should both work with this MAC Off-road Pro Chamber Mid Pipe. Just be careful as manufacturing tolerances from brand-to-brand will change.
The MAC Off-road Pro Chamber Mid Pipe will require the use of 24" O2 sensor plug-in extender wires for the 2004 models.
With issues with exhaust fitment on the car, we usually recommend taking to a professional exhaust shop to check and see what the issue is, whether it be a bent hanger or a bent mounting point for the exhaust.
If you are asking about the MAC cat-back exhaust we offer (item 40047) then the mid pipe should fit without issue. If the exhaust you have does have 3 inch piping, unless the pipe has a step down to 2.5 inches, it likely will not have good fitment. Link for good fitting cat-back below.

The piece you are looking at is going to be a coupler added in order to make sure your connection is nice and sealed. As far as any tips, just make sure you are getting the MIL eliminators if you do not have a custom tune to make up for the deleting of your cats, and if you have an 04 GT make sure to get that O2 extension kit.
The MAC Off-road Pro Chamber Mid Pipe (99-04 4.6L) will be a off-road designed eliminating the cats making for a great sound increase to your car.
You should not need to make any modifications when installing the MAC Off-road Pro Chamber Mid Pipe (99-04 4.6L)
TrueBluestang, This will turn your CIL on as there are no cats, this can be fixed by either having a tuner, or the MIL eliminators. This also won't be legal in emission controlled states due to the no cats though. Hope this helps! Forrest
