Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with my review of the Pypes Off-Road Shorty X-pipe available for Pypes long tube header equipped 2005 to 2010 GT Mustangs. Whenever you go from a shorty or a factory header setup to a long tube, you're going to need to change your midpipe to a shorty midpipe. There are a few options out there, but the general rule of thumb tends to be that you should not mix brands. If you want Pypes long tubes, you should stick with a Pypes midpipe. So as far as who this is going to be for, this shorty X-pipe is going to be for the GT Mustang owners that plan on upgrading to long tubes but want to do so in a cost effective way so they're looking at the Pypes long tube headers. Long tubes and a shorty midpipe go hand in hand since you need one to install the other. Usually, those installing long tubes are looking for power gains and an improvement in sound as well. Long tubes and a shorty midpipe have a different iconic type of sound that's hard to ignore. Along the lines of gains, long tubes and a shorty midpipe usually give midrange to top end gains, generally speaking. You may not necessarily be installing the long tubes and a shorty midpipe for sound, but you are going to get a huge change in sound. The long tubes alone are going to change the sound of your exhaust. When you combine that with changing the midpipe, you can expect a pretty big difference in sound, and you're looking at a brand new sounding Pony when you're done. Looking more at the midpipe itself, we're looking at a two and a half inch midpipe that's going to work with the Pypes headers. This is a stainless steel X-pipe, which is really nice to see from an inexpensive midpipe since the material of the midpipe drives the price point. You get the best of both worlds here with a corrosion resistant midpipe and a low price. This is an off road X-pipe, meaning that it has no cats. Normally, an X-pipe is going to have more of a louder, raspier sound as opposed to the deeper note of an H-pipe. Being catless means that this X will flow more than the factory midpipe would for sure, but you have to keep in mind things like emissions, and there's always that chance of the check engine light. But speaking of the check engine light, when you switch over to running long tubes you will need a tune. A tune here will not only help you get everything out of those expensive mods, but one of the main purposes of the tune with long tubes is to turn off the rear O2 sensor so you won't be getting a check engine light. Circling back around their price, you're looking at spending just over $200 for this X-pipe right here. Also, keep in mind that you won't be running this midpipe without a set of Pypes long tube headers, so you can factor those into the price of the shorty X-pipe. These items go hand in hand since you can't really install one without the other, which is another reason why long tube headers are an investment. So at the end of the day, you're looking at both power and sound gains here. Keep in mind that all of your gains will change depending on your setup and your tune, and in addition to that, you're also going to get an awesome change to your exhaust tone. The install of the X-pipe alone is not difficult at all. It's just a basic midpipe swap that doesn't involve removing any other items or any cutting. But, since you'll most likely be installing this along with those Pypes long tube headers, you can expect a project. Because of the combo install you can expect a full three out of three wrenches on this one, and a full day in the garage if you do decide to tackle this yourself. If you don't have a helping hand or you don't have much experience in this area, it might be better to just take the car to a shop for the install. If you do tackle this yourself, just know that you can do it on a jack and stands but a lift would make it easier for sure. Like I said before, the midpipe is easy enough to install. The difficult part will be installing the headers. You're going to need your toolbox for the install along with an assortment of different sockets, wrenches and extensions. A lot of this install obviously requires working in some pretty tight areas. While everything is straightforward, getting access in this area is usually tricky. Having a helping hand in this case is really going to benefit you. At the end of the day, it's all going to be worth it. So wrapping this up here, the Pypes shorty X-pipe is going to be a must have for anyone that's looking at running Pypes long tube headers. It's an off road stainless steel X-pipe. And as always, I suggest you check it out more online for yourself. I'm Stephanie, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Good mid pipe

Installed this x mid pipe onto mac long tube headers and fitment was great. Just make sure to use the flange/true fit collector bolts that come with the header the pypes ones were too long.

Will this application fit Kooks long tube headers? I have kooks LT's and need to know if these will fit without problem. After installing this shorty x pipe would I need to get a cat back system? or will an axle back fit?

Dangerstanger

  • They should work with any long tube header and no you don't need to buy an axle back.

Adding Cats Could it be possible to add the stock cats to this x pipe ? If so, would you have to install them closer to the rear away from the LongTubes? Then would it require 02 Extensions ?

Fordrockst4r

  • That sounds extremely messy. You can do anything with a cutter and welder but how the performance will be is a mystery. Not sure how the factory cats would like being paired up with long tubes. Sure it's just exhaust gases but as soon as you add long tube headers, heat, velocity, and volume all change.

Will these only work with pipes long tube headers? I was looking at getting the Mac long tube headers and was wondering if they were compatable.

  • The Pypes Off-Road X-pipe (05-10 GT w/ Long Tube Headers) will only work with Pypes Polished Long Tube Headers (05-10 GT) item #20100 http://www.americanmuscle.com/pypes-long-headers-0510gt.html. The reason for this is Pypes manufactures the mid-pipes and long tube headers to work exclusively with one another.

    This Pypes product is very well engineered

    I bought the Pypes shorty off-road X pipe to complete the installation of my Pypes long tube headers. This X pipe fit perfectly, is an extremely well-made part and in my opinion, is a great value and great bang for your buck. It's design allows complete access to the transmission should you, say, need to R&R your clutch, you'll be able to remove and replace the trans without dropping the exhaust pipes. Nice. If you want the superior exhaust scavenging an X pipe provides, and need to hook up your Pypes long tubes to the factory mid pipes, look no further. Thanks to Pypes for the engineering and to AM for the great deal!

    Great fit and function!

    Everything went together as it should with no issues what so ever. Exhaust note is much louder than the high flow catted H pipe. I have it with the Pypes LTs and Flowmaster Axle back, but not too loud. It's still pretty docile at idle but at cold startup is one of my favorite notes. I think the quiet idle is the advancement of of the 3V cams. For what it the part actually is, some pipes formed, it is a bit higher price, but that's what coupons are for!

    Pypes x pipe

    Got this x pipe for my 2007 mustang gt. Damm i sure love the sound of my car now with the pypes off road x pipe. I'm breaking necks with this pipes. This x pipe will fit perfect on the Mac long tubes also, with no exhaust leak at all. All u need is shorter bolts if u install it with the Mac long tubes. If u want a loud car this is the way to go, buy a off road x pipe!
