I have a 2003 mach 1 with the 4.6 DOHC, will this X-Pipe fit the pace setter longtubes for the mach 1 4.6 DOHC??

MachMaster

  • While some exhaust setups for different model Mustangs will accept the PaceSetter Offroad X-Pipe (96-04 GT w/ Long Tube Headers) we can only confirm fitment for 1996-2004 GT Mustangs that are equipped with long tube headers.

will this shorty x pipe fit easily with my BBK long tube headers on a 2004 GT? bbk headers long tube, 2004 gt.

Silver04Bullit

  • They should fit most long tube headers. May require a little tweaking but they should fit without to much problem.

will this fit my exhaust system i have a borla stinger exhaust system but want to put this x pipe will it fit perfectly on my 1999 GT

1999mustang

  • Yes, it will; however, you will also need the Pacesetter Long Tube Headers as well. This is a shorty x-pipe, not a standard length, so it won't bolt up to the stock manifolds or shorty headers.

can you use this X-Pipe with stock headers the question is can you use this paceSetter shorty x-pipe with stock headers ?

1323matt

  • No. Stock manifolds and shorty headers will not bolt up to this shorty mid-pipe. They would require a standard length mid-pipe for proper fitment. This shorty x-pipe will require Long Tube Headers for installation.

    Great fit

    Good fit, seems to be made with good quality. Fit right up to my headman long tubes around my auto trans. No problems. Took about 30min to get everything where I wanted it. I am not to crazy about the O2 sensor positions, but it will work.

    I Love my New Exhaust

    i am running this with a flowmaster 40's setup, it is the best sounding mustang in town! i get compliments all the time!, my only regret is that its not loud enough. maybe i will get different mufflers? the X Pipe is By far the best bang for your buck and the guy i had install it had little to no problem installing it on my 03 GT!

    This product took a few days to get to me in California. I coupled this product with a pair of pace setter long tube headers and it fit perfectly. Only took my friend and I 2 hours or so start to finish. My stang has a nice low grrrrrr to it at higher RPM's. Very nice. I suggest this product.
