    High Flow. Are you looking to free up your restrictive stock exhaust, but are required by law to run Catalytic Converters? Then AmericanMuscle has the answer you need in the form of Pypes High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converter Kit.

    Easy swap at the track.   Every car enthusiast knows that catalytic converters suck the lifeblood - horsepower - out of your engine. If you're running a Pypes modular x-pipe style configuration for track / racing purposes, these cats give you an easy way to be street legal when you leave the track.

    Rugged construction. These Pypes Mini Catalytic Converters are build from polished 409 stainless and feature a durable Metallic substrate material making them perfect for force inducted applications. They weigh in at 2.5 lbs each and only measure 11 inches in length.

    Small Footprint. Installed, the Pypes catalytic converters have a very Small under-carriage footprint that only takes up a virtually invisible 7” in length making them perfect for custom applications.

    Will pass most emissions tests. Pypes High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converters will pass emissions testing procedures in most states. However, check your local and state ordinances for installation and usage regulations.

    Application. The Pypes High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converter Kit is specifically designed for use with power adders such as a Supercharger, Turbo-charger, or Nitrous equipped Mustang from 1986 to 2010. If you have a naturally aspirated Mustang then check out the Pypes High Flow Ceramic Catalytic Converter Kit.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Is a tune required with these? Will these work with the Mac Pro Chamber Mid Pipe?

    • A computer tunr would be required with these converters and they do have a 2.5" inlet/outlet which is pretty standard. As long as your Mid-pipe is this size they will work.

    Will these cats pass smog check in California?

    • The Pypes High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converters will past most emissions test however, they are not guaranteed to pass. Since they alter emission outputs, they are very susceptible to fail against California's strict emissions tests.

    I have an 08 GT500, do I need to modify my tune to use these cats or will my current tune work and work well?

    • The Pypes High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converter Kit will typically not require any changes to your tune.

    Is there any drawback if I install this on a naturally aspirated Mustang? Later I would go for a supercharger.

    • There should not be any issues with this on an naturally aspirated setup however since this has cats it will not be as free flowing and you may not notice much in terms of the sound difference.

    I have a 03 Cobra with a SLP catted midpipe and catback and keep destroying the cats. Will these fit in my setup? I don't recall where the O2 sensors were positioned in the SLP setup and these cats have bungs, is there a way to cap them or do I need to relocate the 02 sensors to these cats and plug wherever they are in the SLP setup?

    • The Pypes High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converter Kit can be used to replace the cats in the SLP Catted Mid Pipe. These will include bungs to plug the O2 sensor holes if needed.

      For anyone looking to remove the smell and increase flow over stock cats these are great. I ran with no cats and couldn’t stand the smell. These really cleaned it up. Didn’t remove everything but they got rid of most of it.

      So I kept going through cats because I have nitrous, and then I found these. They are absolutely amazing, sound great, and the insides don't crumble into dust with nitrous use. Highly recommend if you have forced induction, and still wanna pass emissions.

      Beautiful Product

      They're appearance is beautiful, and so is the sound and power gain vs. stock! Only thing (because the pair only came with 2 clamps), I had to have a shop install them. Which isn't too big of a deal, the guy does great work!

      Awesome sound on the insane Cobra thrust side awesome burble on the backing off to normal speed side. Shorter than the aftermarket cats I blew out so had to have a 2.5' piece of pipe welded on. Glad i did it.

      Terrible product

      I own a 2009 gt500 with 2.5 pulley and monoblade throttle body. I thought these cats would help my Shelby breathe but instead they are choking it to death. I have less power and less gas mileage than the stock units. I will be getting these removed after only 3 days of use. What a waste. Do yourself a favor and buy another product.

      Well made outer layer that is considerably better made than stock catalytic converters. The sound is deeper without being obnoxious. Having the O2 sensor bungs already inplace is nice. So far only about 300 miles on the converters, the O2 sensors are reading out of range.

      This was an easy install. You can clamp or weld the but strongly recommend you weld them in. The appearance is sleek and clean. For those who have states that require catalac converters this is a great option. Highflow and don't restrict what you're trying to achieve in horsepower gains. Great bang for your buck. Literally!

      Very Happy

      Replaced factory catalytic converters when they started to fall apart within, causing a rattle noise at wide open throttle. Exhaust shop removed resonators (which I didn't ask for) and factory cats when installing these, and I love the exhaust sound of my V6 now. I've had other mechanics (experienced ones at that) say to me "Is this really a V6?". Not only that, fuel economy went from 22.6mpg highway to 27.9mpg. That's significant, very happy with the product. Inspection of the cat install after the fact revealed that the due to the size and shape of the cat, the left converter is slightly too close to the body of the car since the cats do not come with heat shields. No problems there after 6 months of summer driving.

      I had bought the pypes O/R x pipe with my SLP LM1's and it was crazy loud. which was fine by me. But the exhaust smell was bad when i was in a drive thru or something like that. So i decided to buy these and it quieted it down a little bit but my check engine light is still on and i have no increase in power.

      Excellent Price/Quality

      Great fit/finish. I have the pypes LT's w/off road X, had a great sound except for some trumpeting around 2k-3k rpm when I was accelerating hard. The cats took that away and turned it in to the perfect growl. They also got rid of the exhaust smell, which was just an added bonus. Install was easy as cake, only had to make two cuts to the modular pieces between the long tubes and mid pipe so I can always buy another set of modular pieces from Pypes if I want to go without when I take it to the track.

      When I bought these I got the PYPES catted x pipe. The sound and flow is amazing. Fitment was horrible. I had to rig ratchet straps to pull the pipes together to bolt on. Other than that. Its a great product.

      be cautious

      I purchased the Pypes X pipe w/cats (Part#) EX1050 for my 94 GT. They sounded great, but I had to e-test my vehicle shortly after installing the Pypes cats after a few thousand kms on the car. The emissions (Nox) failed e-test miserebly (Ontario Canada). I put my original factory cats back on and the car passed with flying colors.
