    I'm looking at putting these on my daily, the description says off-road use in most cases even though you'd still have cats on, so my question is after a tune would these be able to pass inspection in say Texas?


    • The Stainless Works Long Tube Headers and High Flow Catted X-Pipe Kit are designed as an off road product. We cannot say if these would or would not pass Texas emissions, as we do not know all of the laws and regulations. The best bet would be to check with a local emissions inspector.

    If I were to purchase would my car throw a check engine light? If I don't get the Bama power flash tuner?


    • Your car will throw a check engine light as you will be changing the size of the headers, the flow rate and the location of the O2 bungs. You will need to have Bama or another tuning specialist retune your vehicle to accommodate the new changes in your exhaust setup.

    I have Roush Axlebacks on my Mustang, the rest of the exhaust system is stock. Would I have to cut anything or if I just give the pipes and headers to a shop would they be able to put them on without problem?


    • You should not need to cut anything in order to install these headers and x-pipe. They will clamp on to the factory over axle pipe. We do recommend getting a tune for this set up. If you already have a Bama tuner, you can simply request a new tune. Though, if you do not, you may be interested in the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 2 Custom Tunes (11-14 GT, 12-13 BOSS), item # 101200G11, ( The tunes will adjust the car to the increased airflow, thus creating more power.

      These long tubes make the car sound insane! I have it paired to the Borla Atak and the car screams! There's no drone cruising around town or even on the highway at 70-75. It's only loud when you crack the gas. The car pulls much harder now (thank you to Bama with the tune). They are worth every penny. The install is a pain, didn't do it myself and paid for it but I know it's in there and done properly. Shop said the fit and finish on them is incredible so definitely worth the money for power as well as fit.

      Great headers overall

      If you want to avoid the possibility of dealing with any fitment issues, you can't go wrong with spending a few extra bucks on these headers. The x-pipe it comes with bolts on perfectly to the stock exhaust that connects to your axle-back/mufflers. If you want to keep your cats, there aren't many options on the market right now; this kit does an awesome job of letting me pass inspection while not restricting airflow. I felt a noticeable gain in power in 2nd and 3rd gear especially. They're so incredibly loud when you get on it and I personally love it. At cruising speed it's like all you have is an axleback, no drone whatsoever. Install was not easy on jack stands, took a full day, but most of the time was spent removing the old headers. I couldn't get the downpipe separated from the stock headers; spent about 2 hours working on the bolts and then decided to cut the old exhaust at the h-pipe and just pull the entire header/downpipe off at once (this is a good option if you have rusty bolts and don't need your old exhaust, there's plenty of space in the engine bay to wiggle it out in one piece). Overall, well worth it in my opinion, but definitely not something I'd want to do again if I wasn't getting paid and didn't have a lift! As far as sound goes, I have it paired with roush axlebacks and it sort of keeps the raspy roush tone, but much much angrier :)

      I had them installed by a professional. I could notice the added HP and torque, how much don't know but it's noticeable. The sound is deep and rumbly exactly what I was looking for. All in all a good product and definitely worth it.

      Loud and pricey

      My 2012 had Roush axlebacks on it, holy s*** is it loud now. As far as performance, i cant say it justifies $1600, but the sound, thats worth a good amount. Install wasnt for beginners, pay somebody if u dont have a lift. Necks are snapping when i drive by, that part is fun. If its sound you want buy it, if it's power you want, keep saving for the supercharger.

      perfect fit, wicked sound

      Took six hours on lift with an extra hand, fit, finish and sound are spot on. Tons of clearance around steering, great ground clearance as well. Instructions were useless, and the o2 extension is garbage and won't make a connection, so I got a cel. Would recommend buying a new o2 sensor,from the raptor that is 18 inches long. But overall product is awesome!

      Best investment!

      The installation was rough, took almost a full 24 hours of work. High recommend following the instructions provided by Stainless Works, but be prepared they are very vague and we ran into some minor issues. Absolutely worth the work! The car just sounds unreal! I can definitely feel a big difference in HP gains, also some minor MPG gains as well.
