Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with this SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe, available for 2015 and up GT Mustangs. This Resonator Delete X-Pipe from SR Performance is going to be for the S550 GT owners out there that are looking to increase the sound level of their car quickly and without necessarily having to spring for an entirely new exhaust system. This makes it perfect for those of you out there that are on a budget but that need to open up some value and create more of a muscle car sound. Replacing the resonator with an X-Pipe can totally change the sound of the car, even with the stock axleback still installed. The Resonator Delete is firstly going to free up some power and, of course, volume, since it will be replacing that restrictive factory resonator with a 409-grade, stainless steel X-Pipe that is more free-flowing.So not only are you going to have a major change in sound with this X-Pipe, but you'll also be freeing up some power as well. While this does reuse the factory cat so it stays smog-legal, you're still going to have those sound and power gains here and reusing the stock cats will save you money, which is always a plus. This X-Pipe is 2.5" in diameter and [inaudible 00:02:18] and like I said, it is 409-grade which is great for those cars that are daily drivers or those that see weather conditions other than the sun. It's going to offer great corrosion resistance and, like I mentioned earlier, one of the cool things about this X-Pipe is that you can pair it with your stock mufflers for a change of exhaust note, or you can run it with an aftermarket axleback. So you'll cut and remove the factory resonator and clamp into place the new X-Pipe, no matter what axleback you back.But either way you'll still maintain the use of the stock cats. So like a typical X-Pipe, this X-Pipe from SR Performance is going to force the exhaust gases to cross and even out. It's going to create a raspy note and a lot more volume, even with the factory components. On a scale of one to five, with five being the loudest, and keeping in mind that you're still going to have your stock cats, I would rate this X-Pipe with a solid two with the factory axleback. It definitely opens up some sound, but it's not overbearing or crackly or too raspy with the factory axleback. But if you're planning on swapping your factory axleback anytime soon, just know that this X-Pipe will help make things a lot louder. Depending on which axleback you end up choosing, you could be looking at more of a four on the loudness scale.As far as price goes, this X-Pipe Resonator Delete is the most affordable on the site, especially when you start to consider how much exhaust costs for the S550. This X-Pipe costs just a little over $100 and there currently is only one other X-Pipe that even comes close to this price. But the real kicker is, this other option is made from aluminized steel, while the SR Performance X-Pipe is that 409-stainless that I mentioned. At the end of the day, I would say that this is a great deal. You have a fast and easy way to totally change your exhaust and it's also a high-quality material. And if you think about it, if you pair this with an aftermarket axleback, you've effectively created a cat-back for your GT and you've paid a lot less for it.As for the install, you do have some flexibility here. Like the name suggests, there will be some cutting involved but nothing too difficult. If you take your time, it's going to take about two hours to complete, maybe less. And I'm going to call this a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, but mainly just because of the cutting that's involved. The X-Pipe does come with brand new clamps that SR Performance has upgraded so they'll perform correctly, and like I just mentioned, you always have the option of clamping the front and welding in the rear of the X-Pipe. But that's up to you and your shop. A lot of people like welding in the rear better but that's not something that you have to do.I will say that the X-Pipe is 2.5" out the rear as well, which means that you will need to slit or expand the ends so you can slip it over your factory exhaust. That's going to be the only downside here, but ultimately that's really just a small bump in the install road. It's nothing to really rain on the parade of the value of this piece, especially if you have a good shop installing it. So overall, this is a high-quality, stainless steel Resonator Delete X-Pipe that can work with either the factory axleback or an aftermarket one. It also works with the factory cats and it's going to free up some sound and volume from the GT. It's a great way to inexpensively change your exhaust note, and as always check it out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Great quality. Awesome sound.
I matched this product with MBRP (muffler delete) axle backs. So I have nothing but straight pipe from the cats back. How hard you are on the peddle is how loud it gets. Couldn’t be happier with my setup.Helpful (0)

For the price well worth it!!!
Cold start is a lot louder. When just cruising is quite but when you get into higher rpms is a lot louder and raspier. I cut the exhaust and did not weld them just clamped them and tighten the bolts as much as I could no exhaust leaks.Helpful (0)

Sound is out of this world, definitely a drone sound in higher speeds but you don’t worry about it once you cold start or step on the throttle. Amazing product for an amazing price. I went ahead and got it welded on as wellHelpful (0)

Everything was perfect besides you have to expand the pipe in rear to fit over stock... Rented $190 tool from autozone and broke it trying to expand pipe, ended up just butting it up with clamps until i get enough motivation to weld it.Helpful (1)

Just got this installed yesterday, and oh wow, what a difference! I have it on my '19 GT with active valve exhaust, and it sounds soooooo much better! Makes a beautiful sound. Not sure I'll even be interested in having the stereo on now, as listening to this deep thunderous exhaust is pure music to me! Turns heads everywhere.Helpful (2)
Can the 409 stainless be confirmed? I saw on other sites this was being advertised as aluminized steel.
I am not sure which other site this x-pipe was advertised as aluminized steel, however, American Muscle is the exclusive dealer for SR Performance and they are indeed constructed of T409.
Just installed this on my 18 GT. My mufflers are not level like they were before and I feel like a made perfect cuts. It doesn't look bad, but I want my 4 tips to be in-line with each other and not slanted. How do i fix that? 18 GT with active exhaust
After installing the SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe you should loosen all clamps in your exhaust, align the pipes and mufflers, and with a friend holding the pipes in place, re-tighten all clamps. This will allow you to ensure all pipes, and your tips, are perfectly aligned.
So if as some have said and this x pipe has the same diameter as your stock pipe, how do you attach it to the cat pipes? I don't want to weld it as I want to do it myself. Do I need to get extra parts? What do I need, where can I get them? Thanks
Hi, you will use the supplied exhaust clamps to secure the resonator delete pipe onto factory cat back, and use the factory exhaust clamps to connect this SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe to the mid pipe.
I was wondering if i put this xpipe on do u need to tune the car?
This x-pipe will not require a tune after installation.
What is the weight of the x-pipe. I was told the stock resonator weighs about 15 pounds. I was wondering what the savings in weight might be.
The SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe weighs approximately 11.3 Pounds.
Adding the SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe to a Muffler delete exhaust will make for a very loud and racey/raspy exhaust note.
The SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe will delete your factory resonator, which has a built in crossover, with this X shaped crossover. You will see power gains, especially in the mid to high RPM range when using an X Pipe. Individual pipes without a crossover are not typically used as they cause a loss in power compared to an H or X pipe, due to the complete loss of exhaust scavenging.
The SR Performance Cut and Clamp Resonator Delete X-Pipe is specifically designed for use on the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs only and will not fit on the V6 models due to the size difference.
Hey Champ, To say one is better is really relative, they both are about the same in terms of power, the difference lies mainly with sound. H-pipe you generally get a deeper sound than an x-pipe. But x-pipes are usually louder.
This will not fit the 2011-2014 Mustang GT models.
This mid-pipe will work with most axle-back exhausts.
This would result in additional volume and increased rasp when compared to the stock exhaust.
It should. However, it will depend on your state and their emission laws. We recommend checking with your state ordinances or a local shop.
Gains will vary based on environment, driving habits, additional vehicle modifications, etc.
