Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com. Welcome to the breakdown and sound clips of the Pypes Off-Road H-Pipe, available for your 2005 to 2010 Mustang GT. Swapping out your factory mid-pipe in favor of an aftermarket option is not only a great way to pick up some power, but can also totally transform the way your Mustang sounds. Now when deciding on a mid-pipe for your own ride, you do have a couple of different options. For instance, we can go with an off-road X-pipe or H-pipe like we have here, which is going to be devoid of any catalytic converters. On the other hand you can go with a catted mid-pipe, which will incorporate some kind of small, high-flow cat into the design.
In addition to that, you will have to choose whether you want an H-pipe or an X-pipe. Traditionally you can expect a slightly raspier exhaust note when going with an X-pipe, and it's going to produce some slightly higher top-end horsepower gains. On the other hand, the H-pipe, like I do have with me here today, is going to give you that lower muscle car rumble, it's going to help reduce some of the rasp, and it should produce some slightly lower torque gains. Now, ultimately, guys, it's up to you to decide which mid-pipe you want to go with and what style you're looking for, for your own ride.
Getting into some of the details here with this H-pipe from Pypes, you will notice 2 1/2-inch mandrel bent stainless steel tubing for the build, in addition to all your O2 bungs, which have already been pre-welded for you. Now, one thing I do like about this H-pipe from Pypes, is that it is a modular design, meaning there's a few different pieces. So if you ever wanted to switch out the cat-less portion here, for sort of the pipe's high-flow cats, well, you can do so. And you can get more info on those on the product page.
Now, whenever doing a mid-pipe video, I do want to remind you guys that this is a full-length mid-pipe. And what that means is it's only going to fit 3-valve cars with the stock headers still in place or an aftermarket pair of shorty headers. Now, if you are looking to do a long tube/mid-pipe combo, then you might want to check out Pypes' other version of this same exact H-pipe, but the shorty version, which is designed to work with a long tube setup.
Install is going to be slightly more involved than an axleback, for instance, but overall it really isn't all that bad, say maybe two hours from start to finish, using basic hand tools. Now, keep in mind, guys, most of this install will be done underneath the car, so just make sure you have your jack or jack stands ready or race ramps if that's an option.
So if you guys are looking to add both power and sound to your 3-valve GT for a very affordable price, then be sure to check out the Pypes Off-Road H-Pipe, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
