Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hi I’m Justin with, and I’m this is our breakdown of Pypes’ true dual exhaust system for the 2005-2010 V6 Mustang. This kit from Pypes contains everything you need to convert your single exhaust V6, into a true dual system whilst still maintaining your factory cats. This kit includes a brand new X-pipe, all your piping, and these Pypes street pro 3 chambered mufflers, which give your V6 a deep rumble at idle and while on the throttle. The entire system is constructed from 3.5” mandrel bent tubing, and is finished off with these dual 4” polished tips, embossed with that Pypes logo. Since this car was not set up for dual exhaust from the factory, the install is a little more in depth. For one, you will need to cut your factory Y-pipe just after the cats using a saw or something similar. Second, you will need to make a second exhaust cutout using the supplied template included with the kit. Getting all this done and getting the exhaust bolted up should only take about 3 hours start to finish. While we’re on the topic of installation, we’re going to use our stainless steel exhaust hanger kit, which should really make the installation of our Pypes kit much easier on our V6. We strongly recommend using this kit on the install of your true dual system. Now let’s hear how Pypes true dual exhaust system sounds compared to our factory exhaust.

True Dual Exhaust. Now you can easily convert your V6 Pony to a true dual exhaust with the Pypes Dual Pipe Conversion Kit. This system includes both the X-Pipe and Cat-Back needed to give your Mustang an impressive throaty V8 sound and increase in rear wheel horsepower.

Compatible With Stock Cats. The installation of this Pypes Dual Pipe Conversion Kit requires cutting the factory Y-pipe and reuses the stock catalytic converters to save you money.

Quality Materials. Both the X-Pipe and Cat-Back are constructed from mandrel bent 2.5" 409 stainless steel. The X-Pipe features welded reinforcement plates for additional strength and the Dual Cat-Back features Pypes Violator 3-chamber mufflers for an aggressive throaty sound. With its 4" Polished 304 stainless steel tips this system not only sounds great, but it looks great too.

Application. This Pypes Dual Pipe Cat-Back Conversion Kit is designed to fit all 2005 to 2010 4.0L V6 Ford Mustangs. Reuses the stock Catalytic Converters.

Technical Note: This Pypes kit attaches after your factory catalytic converters to convert your single exhaust to a true dual exhaust from the cats back. Includes the template for cutting out the 2nd exhaust tip in the 05-10 V6 factory rear bumper.

How did you cut the valence? Whats the best tool for getting a nice clean cut, without rattling parts loose? I was thinking a hand held jug saw with fine teeth and a short blade. I assume the bumper cover is plastic, and some plastics crack when cut. Anyone have a problem with cracking during or after?


  • The bumper cover is basicly plastic, and will cut relativly easily. A good quality utility knife with a new blade. Start with one big cut, then spend about an hour detailing the cut to perfection. Take your time, and it will look factory..

How much horsepower does this really add


  • Some say 10-15 maybe. Coming from V6's single exhaust it WILL with out a doubt, add HP/TQ. It's a given. all kits add about the same depending on the transition pipes 'n what not. Like an H pipe wont give you as much as an X pipe. If you have a tune, you will get more along the lines of 15-20. 20's pushin it though. Or, if you have a wireless ITSX tuner like myself. You can simply find a straight away and see for your self! You can find that here on AM as well.

Aftermarket exhaust parts I was wondering, if I get the Pypes True Dual Exhaust kit, could I later install the Pypes Off-Road X-Pipe and the Pypes Muffler-Delete Axle-Back Exhaust, even though they both say its for the GT?


  • The reason that they say it is for the GT is because the GT comes stock with a dual exhaust. If you upgrade your V6 with a true dual exhaust, then any of the GT exhaust parts from the Catalytic Converters back should fit on your car, even though it is a V6.

will the Flowmaster outlaw series axle back (13-14 GT) exhaust work with this?


  • The Flowmaster kit you are asking about would not fit this Pypes True Dual Exhaust because this true dual exhaust already includes an axleback, so what you are asking would require replacing a piece of this exhaust. However, being that this is designed for 05-10 V6s and the other exhaust in question is designed for the 13-14 GT, so replacing the piece of exhaust I was mentioning before would likely require modification.

Are the mufflers removable? As in if I wanted to put the Flowmaster Outlaw series axle back in place.


  • The Pypes True Dual Exhaust mufflers would not be welded and can be replaced with a different brand like the Outlaw series as long as it is 2.5" tubing.

I Am looking at aftermarket shorty headers I have this set up and have found some with a 2in outlet will that match up and fit this exhaust system?


  • The Pypes True Dual Exhaust will reuse the OEM connections to the headers, so any shorty header will work without issue.

    I ordered this, and it arrived in short order. Got it bolted up on my 07 (only had a minor line up issue), and it sounds great. Nice, deep rumble at idle, not loud in the cabin, and gives a throaty roar at take off, and a good, muscular sound when accelerating from a rolling start. Over all an excelent buy for a V6. Looks great, too.

    Pypes V6er

    I have bought thousand of dollars of stuff off this site and this product now is perfect. the price is awesome and i had almsot no issue with install since i took it to shop, it now comes with the hangers which were before missing, and the fitment is nice. The driverside issue everyone keeps talking about litterally was salved with a clenched fist. Welded it onto my car since i was missing a clamp but it sounds even better. this is a nice, TRUE duel exhaust kit. the sound at 2k rpm.. everyone complains but its really just a sweet spot. when the car really sounds like its opening up. The tips are ncie and i cut the bumper myself with a hand saw after i made a template out of cardboard... really easy, really nice, look for my pics of silver stand with black side and back stripes and blackout pannel!!!

    Awesome Exhaust, annoying installation

    This exhaust was the biggest pain to install. I had no idea it would be this difficult. You absolutely have to have a lift, there's really no other way. On my 2006, the holes had the nuts for the muffler hangars welded in, but they weren't threaded. Just use the screws that come in the box, place them correctly, and screw them in without the threads. This effectively threads the nuts. Cutting the old y pipe off almost made me piss myself. I used a saws-all, and broke both of my blades. I figured out you can use a clamp and a hammer to give those things a second and third chance though. Careful of the floor board when you're cutting also. Getting the new x pipe on is also a pain, and DO NOT use the bumper cutout template that comes with the exhaust. I used it and cut the hole way too far to the left. Place your exhaust on your car, and then make the bumper cut where you need to. Drive the car for a day or two, then lift it again and fix any leaks. Make sure the mid-pipes aren't touching anything because they make an obnoxious grinding noise when they hit something. I didn't hear any of the droning that people have complained about at 2000 rpm, but if you hear it, get a cold air intake. This drone is caused by the car not having enough air going into it through the stock air box to complement the exhaust. My friend has super 44's on his with a stock air box, and mine sounds twice as good because I have a K&N CAI. This provided a small torque boost, but I haven't been able to test if it raised the top speed (previously 126 with SCT tune and K&N CAI), so who knows about horsepower. It sounds amazing though. I recommend this for any v6 owner. It's not obnoxiously loud or ricey, and it's a great price

    Pypes Kit review

    This kit is a great way to get your V6 sounding mean and give you a little extra power and MPG. The only bad things in my experience with it were the splice in design of the x-pipe makes for a difficult install, even on ramps. We had a hard time getting the sawzall to cut completely through the stock pipe because there just isn't enough room under the car. Also, my left hand catback pipe cracked along the weld where the muffler connects, so you have to question the quality of the weld. Pypes did send me a replacement pipe, though, no cost to me, and I didn't have to send my cracked pipe back.

    After much research I picked up the pypes dual exhaust for my 2010 V6 pony and its awesome more than I could have wished for. The installer stated when I picked my car up it sounds like a GT now. I told him thats just what I wanted and the Roush Valence really makes it look tough!

    4* for final product 2* for everything in between

    Recieved everything within 2 days of the order only to find that the exhaust tips were gouged up fairly bad and the mufflers dented as well. Got an RMA that day and sent the boxes off back to AM only to wait 2-3 weeks to recieve a new set. Anyhow, the instalation, was a nightmare! directions were not detailed whatsoever, the mid pipes were labeled wrongly (right&left), had to go out and buy a new set of clamps for the muffler to mid pipe section and the list goes on and on. Basically if you don't have a lift or much knowledge of your car just bring it to a shop and have them weld it for you and save yourself from much frustration and anger! Finished product (after much blood, sweat, and tears,) is awesome! I totally reccomend to all V6 owners...ohh and dont worry about the burning smell after starting her up the first few times is just the lubricants inside the pipes!

    drone is terrible

    The exhaust system is fine until you get to about 2000-2500 rpms on the freeway and then it is horrible!!! Absolutely unbearable almost. Otherwise for cruising around the streets it sounds pretty nice. But before i bought this product i figured how bad could the drone truly really is that bad. Just warning everyone else who is considering buying this system

    before and after

    just had these installed about a week ago. Drone sound at 1800 - 2500 RPMs. Fixed this issue with insulation padding in the trunk under the trunk mat. Cut the bumper myself with the help of my gf's father. Saved me labor $. Installation only cost $150 at a local shop.

    Pypes V6 Duals

    Looks cool from the outside, sounds cool from the outside. Inside the cabin is another story. A dreadfully annoying drone sets in at expressway speeds ( I do a lot of commuting) and almost hurts my ears. I spent a lot of money buying this and getting it installed and am more than disappointed because it has turned my daily commutes into a royal noisy pain. I now have to look at the possibility of spending even more money to make the car livable again. A definite expensive trade-off to get the GT look...

    Highs and Lows

    I ordered this kit without any real expectations. Honestly I did't know what to expect, but I knew I wanted some duals. I got a bumper and then installed this kit at home with some jacks. Its doable, but for the time and effort, I should have taken it to the muffler shop. I HIGHLY suggest that you get this kit welded up onto your stang. It is daylight and dark between welded and clamped. Overall the kit does work well, but with the drone at approximately 2250-2450 rpms it seems that a 2 and 1/4 in exhaust would have been better for the engine. The mufflers are deep, and in some cases they can be slightly annoying, but for the most part they sound good on the car at most rpms. The exhaust system shines at high rpms and its something that just sounds great. Over stock exhaust I wish I would have bought the FORD RACING exhaust for the car, but thats mainly for the 3.5in instead of 4.0in muffler outlet. If you do alot of highway driving I would suggest the FORD kit, its not as deep but a friend has it and I prefer its sound. This kit was worth the price, but as they say you get what you pay for. The exhaust works well with the AM v-6 project car setup (thats what I run) (Note do not try to deform the pipes, they are thin and will crack)

    if you do it at home

    hey guys, so i just installed it this weekend. me and my girlfriend did it on my lift in our shop. getting the existing exhaust out was a pain. but once it was out fitting the x pipe was simple. HOWEVER! the hard ware sent with the system is FAR from quality. the clamps SUCK. i HIGHLY recommend if you do this yourself you apply some tac welds to the x pipe in and out clamps. and as for the muffler hangers on the driver side. YES there is holes for them in the chassis. NO THEY ARE NOT THREADED. only the BOTTOM holes are accessible to tap and thread. the side holes you would have to take off the bumper to get a tap and handle in there. this is where tac welding comes in again. after the xpipe outlet clamps CAME OFF driving down the road, im taking them to a shop to have some welds done. same with the hangers. other then that it sounds great, when its not rattling from crappy hardware, it was a sinch to cut the bumper. i used TIN SNIPS! and it looked better then the other side! also did bbk CAI, sct x3 flash preloaded tune, and a stack racing throttle body spacer. all compliment each other well.

    Pain in the A**!

    It seriously took us over 4 hours to "fabricate" this thing into place. We ran into problems the whole way from the X pipe to the muffler hanger bolts ( which didnt fit I had to go buy new screws at the hardware store to hang the driver side muffler) it does make the car sound better my recommendation is to have a pro do it cuz its not worth the headache!

    Excellent Product!

    Overall this is a great product. Self-install does require some kind of pit/lift or at least 3 feet of clearance to get the long pipes to fit over the axle. Makes it MUCH easier to tighten all the bolts up. All the parts fit good, except one of the hangers on the passenger side muffler needed to be longer to make it farther through the bracket. There was NO DRONE SOUND, like others have mentioned. Paper template to line up bumper cutout was incorrect by a full inch, measured by hand and cut with a dremmel, came out better than the factory cut! Car sounds amazing!

    Had this system professionally installed yesterday. When I first started the car the system sounded sweet and looked great. Then I drove the car on the highway and when I hit 1,600 rpm's the droning started. the droning is deafening. There is no way it is tolerable. One reveiw suggested that a CAI would solve the problem but, I installed a BBK CAI that I had also purchased when I got home with no change to the drone. I e-mailed Pypes tech people this morning looking for a cure and was told that the drone is caused by the automatic transmission and there is nothing I can do about it. If the drone is caused by the transmission why was there no drone before at that rpm. I feel like Pypes is blowing smoke up my pipe.
