    The Pypes 2.5-inch stainless steel replacement flow tube kit fits '79 to '04 V8 and V6 Mustangs, and '94 to '99 Cobras. You're gonna wanna check out a kit like this if you're upgrading your exhaust in stages by buying a mid-pipe and then buying a set of mufflers, in whatever order, instead of picking up a cat-back. A cat-back comes with these flow tubes, which are located between the mid-pipe and the mufflers, but if you pick up just a set of mufflers instead of a cat-back, you're looking at needing to reuse your stock flow tubes or picking up these Pypes flow tubes if you wanted to create a full aftermarket system from the mid-pipe back. The install for these isn't difficult. It's a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you can plan on spending an hour or two on the install. Sitting between the mid-pipe and the mufflers are the flow tubes. Unless you pick up a cat-back, you aren't getting a new set of these. They don't come with new aftermarket mufflers or mid-pipes, and a lot of people want to be consistent with their exhaust. That means not reusing the stock flow tubes. These flow tubes are 2.5-inch, mandrel-bent, 409 stainless steel. And I'll always say this when it comes to exhaust, but stainless steel's going to be your best bet if you want materials that are gonna hold up and not corrode. Compared to aluminized tubing, any stainless steel's gonna be stronger with a longer life. If you compare 409 to 304 grade stainless, 304's gonna be the top-of-the-line material. 409 stainless is still stainless steel, and it isn't a bad material by any means. You still get the longer life and the protection, but 409 usually costs a little bit less than 304. Speaking of cost, you can expect to pay right about $60 for these. These are currently the only flow tubes that you can pick up on the site, so there isn't really anything that we compare them to, but you know that they're 2.5-inch, and they're stainless steel, and they will fit with any setup. When it comes to the install, this is gonna be a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You can plan on spending an hour or two, tops, on the install. You'll need a socket set and a way to get the car in the air. Depending on what else you're installing with these, the install might change slightly. If you're just installing the flow tubes and nothing else, the install will be straightforward. Your mufflers should have four clamps on them. You'll remove the two front clamps after unbolting the front flow tubes from the mid-pipe. Remove the flow tubes and swap in your new ones. Clamp them to the muffler, and then to the mid-pipe. I would leave things loose until you have them all lined up, and then tighten them down. And that's gonna wrap things up for the Pypes stainless steel replacement flow tube kit for '79 to '04 V8s and V6s, and '94 to '99 Cobras. You can check them out more online, right here at

    Replacement Flow Tubes. Replacing the restrictive stock mufflers is a great idea, but you may end up damaging the factory flow tubes in the process. That is why we offer Pypes 2.5" Stainless Steel Replacement Flow Tube Kit. This kit will replace the piping between the Mid Pipe and the mufflers for a perfect installation.

    Durable Stainless Steel Construction. Pypes uses sturdy 16 gauge 409 stainless steel mandrel bent 2.5" tubing with a ball and socket-style connector for improved flow and includes a set of two 2.5" 304 stainless steel flanges.

    Application. This Pypes 2.5" Replacement Flow Tube Kit is designed for use on the 1979 to 2004 Mustangs when replacing the stock mufflers with aftermarket mufflers or resonators.

            Great quality flow tubes with a great discount price. Can’t wait to install these with my SVE X-pipe, BBK headers, flow master mufflers and new flow master tail pipes. Now my new exhaust build is complete for my drop top pony. Thanks American Muscle.

            Perfect fit, a cat back system isn't really available for a 84, so had to get part from different spots to make one. These pipes were cut and bend to the right length. Very well made, going to order another set to fix my dad's car.

            Flow tubes

            I would have given this 5 stars but had a little trouble getting these to seat right on my H pipe. The flanges came in backwards. If you install just as they come in, in my case anyway, they end up causing and exhaust leak as they dont sit right on the h pipe ball joint. Reversing the flanges is how you get it to sit correctly. Again may have just been in my case but something to look at prior to install. Other great and work perfectly.

            They fit as expected. Good if you want to build your own cat-back exhaust for a SN95 Mustang using any brand of muffler and existing tail pipes. Or use as dump system.

            Stainless flow Tubes

            I was looking piecing together a new exhaust system from different vendors to work with my 1.75" headers for my 94 GT. In looking for Stainless 2.5" flow tubes, these were the only ones I could locate and they were of good quality and came at an attractive cost from a great supplier, American Muscle.

            The flow tubes are easy to install, they slid right into the pair of m80s I also purchased. Mounts perfectly on stock exhaust. Only gave it a 4 star because it did not come with any hardware, luckily I was able to use existing nuts and bolts.

            1 1998 Cobra - BryanT

            was expecting a better fitment

            End of piping was all bent and beat up probably due to handeling. Does not come with new bolts (not the end of the world but they should) and install shop had to bend them more as they did not fit like they should have. For the cost and the extra work needed to make them work would have been the same as the shop making their own. Fortunately this item does not break the bank but not as discribed. :(
