I'm confused about which dual conversion kit to purchase if I want to use an H-Pipe. The only one that seems to be a street option for our 04 V6 is the Pypes True Dual Catted Exhaust which comes with the X-Pipe. If I want to run an H-Pipe am I buying this system and just not using the X-Pipe? Otherwise I'm not understanding which cat back system to buy.

gtcoder

  • The H-pipe keeps the exhaust from each header separate. That is, each header has its own exhaust system. The X-pipe forces the exhaust from each header to mix at the "X," and then a "balanced" exhaust flows into the two exhaust pipes downstream of the X-pipe. Each header does not have its own exhaust system since the exhaust gases are mingled in the X-pipe. Finally, your V6 already has two catalytic converters, one for each header. So you don't need a catted X-pipe. So buy the H or X pipe and a GT catback exhaust for your model year mustang and you are good to go.

If I buy this h pipe, do I still have to get a dual exhaust conversion kit for my v6 or can I go for a gt catback exhaust?

CristianC

  • With this H-pipe you would not need to still buy the dual exhaust conversion. Any GT cat-back would work with this H-pipe.

I wanted to purchase this in order to install the borla S exhaust system on my 2001 V6 but I live in California, and I see that they said it not legal on California highways? If you can further explain, and if this would cause me to fail future smog tests?

DanielL

  • In California any modifications made has to be Carb Certified or approved! Its a law set in place to lower smog emissions in your state. The Pacesetter adapter that you are looking at is not approved which means it may alter the way your car produces smog, which to answer your question you can fail smog if removing the catalytic converters. This adapter on its own will not cause you to fail smog but is Illegal per Carb requirements.

Can this dual exhaust adapter be used to run 2 straight pipes all the way with no mufflers?

miked

  • As long as the piping size of the straight pipes is 2.5" this will be able to be used with two straight pipes.

    Great for a V6 Stock to True Dual Conversion

    I purchased this adapter kit when I purchased my Flowmaster American Thunder GT Catback exhaust. I had it professionally installed because it does require welding to the existing headers/cats. It was installed with the dual exhaust and everything went on very well. I cannot really comment on the difference in sound of this part alone, since I had them installed together, but the overall sound going from Stock V6 to True Duals from the catalytic converters has drastically increased the sound level. The sound is the perfect low growl I was hoping for, and many people think I am running a V8 now instead of a V6. It is not raspy at all. My only complaint is that I get some occasional ticking/rasp at 3000RPM (only once in a while), which I believe is because the bolts in this kit have come a bit loose. All I need to do for that, though, is have it tightened up. There was no leak in the pipes or welds when I had them inspected. All in all, this was a great purchase, although I am not sure that a local shop couldn't fabricate something themselves for cheaper, so I would check that option first.

    the truth on true dual

    I bought this H pipe alongside a Flowmaster American Thunder cutback and installed at the machine shop i work at with our welder, and it took the two of us about 5 hours to put in only working with ramps and a fork truck. Definitely not a do-it-yourself job; unless you have access to metal fabrication machinery, you should have it installed at a full shop. The two systems paired together make for a great sound, unless you really know what your listening for, you would think its a V8 with a nice exhaust, not just a V6. I would definitely recommend getting the real deal, this true dual exhaust instead of just a Y-pipe cat back. Not only does it sound better, but you will actually see more power out of this system than just a cutback. All-in-all there is no beating the real thing.

    Perfect Fitment for 04 3.9L V6

    The fit and finish were perfect. The installed GT cat-back exhaust on the H-pipe looks great. Rumbles like a V8! The instructions worried my auto technician (instructions mention only 99-01 and 3.8L). I had to twice reassure my technician before he cut into the stock exhaust that the instructions would work for an 04 3.9L. A.M. please have instructions updated!

    Worth it.

    I installed it with the Flowmaster American Thunder on my 2002 v6. First thing I'll say is that the installation is a pain in the dick hole. But in the end it sounds like a stock GT. For the first couple days of driving it sounds like a civic because the mufflers have not been broken in. Yeah so definitely sounds awesome like 20x louder. Tip: hang tips before you hang the muffler!!

    PACESETTER H-PIPE WITH BORLA STINGERS

    I installed this H-pipe along with Borla S-type Stingers and I must say, it sounds absolutely perfect! I've listened to a TON of videos showing an aftermarket exhaust for the V6, and one most all of them, I could hear the kind of "buzz" or "hum" that the V6 has with engine deceleration and high arms (I believe some say it sounds like a Honda), but with the Pacesetter H and the Borlas, there is none of that. It sounds amazing, throaty, and overall extremely nice. It definitely sounds like a V8, and I have no drone whatsoever. I went with a shop install, to do the Pacesetter H and the Borlas, it took about an hour and a half, and cost me $125. I had no problem with the alignment of the exhaust tips or the exhaust hanging too low. All in all, it's an awesome product and I cannot recommend it more; true dual all the way!

    Love this thing

    This adapter is perfect in my 2000 v6. I did quite a bit of research and heard the h-pipe would give a deeper sound than the x-pipe and I fully back that statement. With almost no experience under the car I just followed the instructions to the T and it was a pretty easy install. One thing to take note: You HAVE to be very accurate where you cut your stock y-pipe (assuming you're doing it yourself and didn't bring it to a shop) or it won't sit right. Also, if you are installing the dual exhaust yourself do NOT tighten the clamps on the h-pipe adapter until you have everything where you want it or you will never be able to move it and the new exhaust won't sit straight. In all, great product and pretty easy to install if you follow the instructions given :)

    Great item for sixers

    I bought this to install the borla s type gt exhaust on my 2000 v6, and it fit perfect after cutting the y pipe, you do have to make an almost perfect cut or you will have an exhaust leak and it will come with instructions on where and how to make the cut. My car doesn't sound anything near to a stock and all it is is an intake and this adapter with a borla exhaust and already sounds like monster gt. I love turning it on next to v8 owners bc it def turns heads specially when you rev it up.

    Killer H-Pipe!!!!

    I had this installed along with the Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust on my 2002 V6. My mechanic charged me $150 for the whole dual exhaust install. The H-Pipe fit absolutely perfectly. As far as bang for your buck goes, this product takes the cake. Excellent performance gain as well. I felt it as soon as I peeled out of the shop parking lot. The exhaust sounds better everyday. This is a must buy for any dual exhaust conversion. Thanks AM!

    Shocked: With MAC catback

    Had this h pipe put on my 2002 v6 along with the MAC catback system and was completely shocked the first time I heard it start up. Gives a much louder and deeper tone to my car now and Im not afraid to start my v6 in front of GT owners anymore! Also noticed an increase in power, I would estimate around 10-12 hp gain. I recommend the MAC system with it, not only is it the cheapest but also the loudest! Trust me you will not be disappointed. Thanks AM!

    Worth Every Penny

    I got this for my V6 2004 horsey and I threw on a GT Borla Dual Exhaust and the sound was amazing. It IS a tight fit, I installed it myself. Just have to make sure you cut in the right spot where the directions tell you too and put it on the right way otherwise it will hang too low if you throw it on the wrong way. You don't HAVE to weld it but its recommended due to the fact if you don't, it'll have more chance of leaks. Overall this was money well spent! Thanks American Muscle!

    Need to weld on, clamping may not work

    The product works well but i had three issues. First, the supplied bolts were not long enough to bolt to the catbacks (i used the stock catbacks from a 98 GT) so i had to buy longer bolts. Second, the two clamps that go towards the cut pipe were not large enough (diameter) to fit around the PaceSetter V6 Dual Exhaust Adapter, but i ended up welding the adapter on so i did not use the clamps (the small clamp that attached the two parts of the adapter together did fit good). Third, the diameter of the adapter pipes is much larger than the cut pipes on the car (my car is a 2000 V6), so there was a quarter of an inch gap after the pipes were fitted, so i am not sure how well just clamping them would work. But after everything was installed, it works good and i am happy with it.
