Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my breakdown of Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust system, fitting all 2005-2010 V6 Mustangs. Now, getting into this system from Pypes, you'll find a few different benefits. The first and most obvious is the fact that you're converting your single outlet V6 exhaust into a true dual system thanks to everything that's included with the kit. You'll find a brand new X-Pipe which still retains your factory cats, 2.5" Mandrel-bent piping throughout, these two M80 bullet-style mufflers, and finally, 4" polished tips. Of course, that True-Dual Exhaust system will look great underneath your rear bumper, as you can see with our 2005 V6 behind me, but you can also expect to see a small bump in power, as well as give your V6 a deep, throaty rumble, with practically zero drone whatsoever. Now that's the beauty of using a mid-muffler system and having longer tail pipes. This design completely eliminates any rasp or drone that is especially apparent on automatic Mustangs, while cruising at highway speeds or in the 2-3k RPM range. Since there is a little bit of work to get everything installed correctly we're going to call it 3 hours from start to finish, just to be safe. Now let's hear how Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust system sounds compared to our factory exhaust.

Gives it a nice low growl at idle, and a roar when it winds up. Honestly, it was exactly what I was looking for. The only thing of note is when installing the system, if you didn't previously have dual exhaust, there will be some slight modification to the hanger and clamp location.IHelpful (0)

Well worth it
I just had this kit installed by my shop and I am impressed. Gone is the drone at 2,000 RPM that my old custom setup had. it has a nice mellow tone when at idle but wakes up nicely once you get on the gas. I paired it with a Pypes Stainless header set and high flow cats. the decibel increase is negligible inside but the sound out side definitely has a more tuned sound. My mechanic said it went in smoothly with just a few minor adjustments.Helpful (1)

Day and Night Difference!
This system is definitely worth it 100. I recommend this system getting professionally installed due to some small fitment issues but once past that it’s amazing! Has a really great sound when starting up and once you floor it, it sounds even better! Huge day and night difference from stock! Totally satisfied!Helpful (0)

This exhaust looks beautiful. All you see from behind are the chrome tips without boxy mufflers. The performance gain, if any, is negligible but who cares because... the sound! The exhaust note is actually a bit deeper than the American Muscle video. I was concerned that the car might sound a bit like those modded Japanese cars, you know like a loud moped, but was pleasantly surprised. The sound can be downright quiet at low RPMs, but the moment you hit that gas everyone around will hear it. Cold starting makes me grin like a little child. I suggest having a professional install. I heard some whispers that the fit is a little off and needs some love, but the guys at the shop told me they didn't have any issues.Helpful (1)

Great quality and sound!
This exhaust looks great and sounds even better! This did take me about 6 hrs to install by myself with all the proper tools to fit. I did this without a lift, I just used 4 jack stands setting on the frame and a 3 ton jack. It took a little more time to get the exhaust to fit correctly under the vehicle without the clearance of a lift. But, over all it was very straight forward, just follow the directions in the manual.Helpful (0)

100 changed the sound of my vehicle. I've had someone say it sounded like a V8 at idle but they could tell it wasn't after I took off which is still a compliment.Helpful (1)

Bought the m-80s mufflers, didn't buy the kit a lot cheaper to have it done at a local shop, but they sound very good on my 2005 V6. Bought the mufflers in May when they were $52 a piece, paid $270 to the local shop for pipe, tips and labor, I do recommend these to V6 owners.Helpful (0)

Great sound and look
This exhaust sounds and looks great but the only thing is that the guy I had install at shop said he had to makeshift a part because a piece wouldn’t fit correctly to bolt down.Helpful (0)

The Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust conversion kit is a great kit. I had a local shop install it due to the sole fact I am 18 and have no access to a lift. By the time it was all said and done, I spent about $700 on the entire setup. This included the exhaust itself, having the second exhaust hole cut professionally (would recommend having someone do it at a local body shop), and having the exhaust installed. The sound is amazing. When cold starting, it rumbles. Idle isn't too loud, but when you get on the road, the real fun starts. It is loudest in the 3500 to 4500 RPM range. I have people ask all the time if it is a V8, and I have been told I'm heard a mile away coming down the road. No loud droning or really any sound when cruising, but the moment you hit the gas, the sound is there. I definitely noticed a horsepower increase, especially when coming out of turns and accelerating. The only problem I really had was a rattle after driving for a few hours, but then came to realize it was mounted against an exhaust hangar. All it took to fix was a blowtorch and precision cutting a hole for it to no longer sit against the hangar. Great price for the sound and power increase, would definitely recommend. It really brings the 4.0 liter V6 to life!Helpful (4)

There's conflicting responses here in the questions about it being CARB legal or not in California. Will it, or will it not pass inspection in CA?? Why will it pass, or why will it not pass?
This dual exhaust system would not affect any emissions devices on your Mustang, so it would be CARB legal in California.
How much horsepower/torque does this add i know the one on the project car adds around 15, how much does this one add
Well it all depends on what your exhaust setup is now. This system MIGHT add 15 hp over stock, but that also might be stretching it. And just a hint, if you buy this exhaust, be wary of speedbumps, curbs, or any other bumps because Pypes brand exhaust tends to hang a little lower than other exhausts.
sound thinking about buying this but first would like to know how loud is this exhaust i dont want somthing quite but at the same time so loud that im getting pulled over? also how good does the exhaust note sound?
It's a great setup, it isn't so loud that you'll get a ticket in any way but it has the deep raspy note that will be noticed at low and high rpms, this is a fantastic setup from American Muscle.
What is the difference? What is the difference between this new exhaust and the Pypes True Dual Exhaust? For the price, there is an almost $100.00 difference.
This is a mid muffler design, and the mufflers are barely there. It not only has a louder and throatier sound, but on the dyno it also yielded an extra 16 horsepower over the basic True Dual system. Trust me, it's worth it to go with the mid muffler design.
Will these fit with the Pypes 1-5/8 in. Polished Shorty Headers?
This true dual exhaust should bolt up to the pypes shorty headers without any issues.
The Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust will not require a new tune.
The Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust comes with the hangers on the exhaust, however, you Mustang will not have the hanger that is attached to the vehicle. To properly install this exhaust, it would require the use of the SR Performance Stainless Steel Exhaust Hanger Kit, item 20021 which is located in the "buy together" option. https://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-2005-stainless-hangers.html
The Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust setup will replace your entire current exhaust setup from the X-Pipe all the way back to the tips, so I would recommend purchasing this first!
It would be recommended to get the Hanger kit with the Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust as your car would not have hangers for the second tip.
Yes, this cat-back exhaust will work with the MAC 1-5/8 in. chrome long tube headers.
The Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust would connect to the factory headers.
You will be able to lower up to 2 inches without having any potential clearance issues with this exhaust.
The Pypes Mid-Muffler True Dual Exhaust will install after all emissions control devices, making this not subject to CARB regulations, and would not cause you to fail Smog testing.
If it doesn't involve catalytic converters or headers, there is no test to pass or fail. These are not included in smog, so you will be fine.
