More Horsepower and Torque. Improve the power and performance of your 2015-2017 GT Mustang by installing an X-Force Varex Full 3" Exhaust System. This X-Force Varex Exhaust features a pair of 1-7/8" Long Tube Headers and High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converters that will greatly improve the exhaust flow of your coyote powered GT, when compared to the factory setup. This System not only improves the power of your Mustang, but also improves its sound with a pair of adjustable Varex Mufflers.

Adjustable Sound. By installing a X-Force Varex Full Exhaust System, you can dramatically change the sound of your S550 Mustang's exhaust from a mellow street sound to a rich, throaty race car growl or anywhere between with just a push of a button. This X-Force Varex Exhaust features a pair of electronically adjustable Varex performance mufflers. Close them when driving through a residential area to stay low key. Then open them up to let your coyote howl while speeding down the highway.

How It Works. X-Force Varex performance mufflers utilize a sophisticated internal electronic butterfly valve mechanism to direct the exhaust flow within the muffler. In the open position, the valve "uncorks" the exhaust flow allowing it to take the path of least resistance. The muffler now acts more like a straight-through muffler for a rich throaty race style exhaust note. In the closed position, the valve blocks the exhaust flow, forcing it through the chambered paths to produce a classic, mellow street friendly sound. This unique design is perfect for personalizing the power and sound levels of your Mustang to suit your own specific needs.

Full Exhaust Kit. The X-Force Varex Full Exhaust Kit is a complete 3" system from headers to tips. This kit includes a pair of 1-7/8" Long Tube Headers, a pair of High-Flow Metallic Catalytic Converters, a Mid-pipe Resonator, a Cat-Back Exhaust with Varex Performance Mufflers and a set of 4" Slant Cut Tips.

Stainless Steel Construction. This X-Force Varex Exhaust System is manufactured from high quality stainless steel tubing for superior durability and corrosion resistance. The Long Tube Headers are constructed from 1-7/8" diameter piping that merges into 3" collectors for superior exhaust flow. The rest of the System features smooth mandrel-bent 3" diameter tubing to eliminate any power robbing kinks.

Direct Bolt-On Installation. Engineered to be a direct upgrade replacement, this X-Force Varex Exhaust System will easily bolt on without any modifications required for a straight forward installation. The control module that powers the muffler butterfly valves can be plugged into your Mustang's 12v accessory outlet for easy plug and play operation or permanently connected to a 12v source - the choice is yours.

Required Upgrade. To realize the maximum power potential that this X-Force Varex Full Exhaust System has to offer, AmericanMuscle highly recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

Application. This X-Force Varex Full 3" Exhaust System is designed as a direct fit bolt-on upgrade for all 2015 to 2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the DOHC coyote 5.0L V8 engine. These Headers are intended for left hand drive applications only.

Technical Note. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only.

Will this system fit on the convertible GT 5.0?

Gardner

  • This system will not fit the convertible models due to the extra bracing they have under the car.

I've just fitted the exhaust, but I'm scared if I wash it with pressure water will it damage the butterflies ? Or the sensor wiring and everything? And where can I get an O2 extensions are they included ?

AliM

  • As long as it isn't a heavy duty power washer or anything crazy, everything will be fine. You will indeed need the O2 extensions. I will post a link below: https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-o2-extension-harness-2015gt.html

    Be ready for the install!!!

    NO O2 EXTENDERS I bought this full system while in sale for $1,200. That was a steal!!! The install in my 2016 PPGT was tricky. The factory header bolts are difficult as expected. However, DS number 7 had to be cut in order to get the nut back on. This could have been avoided if the nut was placed on while the header was loose. PS number 8 is near impossible. Had to turn it 1/16 at a time for nearly 2 hours. Yes we removed the A.C., starter and the motor mounts many times. Was it worth it.....oh yeah it was!

    Great sound, Needs a tuner and wrap

    Great sound and look fantastic. But needs wrap and a front pass O2 extender. The headed are tight and a little hard to get the nut on the studs for header. Would set up for a weekend with three people. Need a tuner.

    Excellent Manufacturer experience

    We ordered the kit for the 2016 GT Convertible. Because of the headers, we also decided to have the kit installed at a shop... You'll want 4 rolls of header wrap while you're at it... Clearances in that engine bay are tight and you want that heat to stay in the pipes. Highly recommend you hire out the header install!!! Note for convertible owners, contact the folks at X-Force directly to make sure you get the newly designed oval mufflers, along with the rear pipes that are specific to the convertible (due to the bolt on subframe connectors). American Muscle folks have been given the new part numbers at this point. I can say without hesitation that the folks at X-Force were absolutely fantastic to deal with. Customer support was great, answering the installers questions and making sure I had the correct parts to complete the setup for the convertible. Great company! Opened up, the system sounds ridiculously cool under acceleration, with no harmonic drone at any particular rpm on the highway, and then you press the button to close the baffles... completely silent. Real Deal. Couldn't be happier.

    Installation nightmare

    Took 12 hours to install headers, I left the studs in the heads, had to remove motor mounts, starter, steering shaft, and loosen the trans mount. To install the passenger side header you have to leave the driver side mount attached with the passenger side removed and jack the engine up as high as it will go to gain access to the nuts. The passenger side header was the only problem due to insufficient room to tighten the nuts....but after a lot of work finally got them all tightened. The rest of the installation went quickly, the driver's side has plenty of room and access to the nuts, but I had to "dimple" the back tube to clear the stud. The system looks and sounds incredible.... the only caveat is you have to buy 02 extensions, they aren't included with the exhaust system, which is strange given the price....I intend to supercharge the engine next, with this full 3 inch system and Varex mufflers the engine will definitely be able to breathe. Oh, the sound? With the butterfly's open it sounds like a SCCA Trans Am race car at 6,800rpm! With them shut you can't even hear it....ease through traffic unnoticed.

    Awesome sound and power!!!

    Just like the title says. The entire system sounds great and delivers when it comes to power. The installation is very tedious and takes a ton of patience with the lack of space you have to work with in the engine bay. I did the install in a day and a half on jack stands. The setup for the active exhaust is so simple and a great feature whwn you don't want to make any noise. I highly recommend this system for anybody looking for longtube headers.

    Great exhaust system!

    This is a great system with some of the better workmanship I've seen. I just want to thank the staff of American muscle for being so helpful. The only problem I have with this exhaust system is that it didn't come with any instructions. I tried to keep the studs in on the passenger side but there was no way to fit the header in with the original exhaust studs. Also I would like to say something about the other review on here. I think this person is full of it, because how can you say that all exhausted systems do not come with the H pipe. Maybe his didn't come with it, but mine sure did!

    A real pain to install but worth it

    The heade is one of the most frustrating part to install of my project. Afer all i wonder if removing the engine is not a better solution than do this in place. You need some new stud or bump the header a some location because stock stud won't fit. We had to wer the transmission to gain acces to some bolt, remove AC, motor mount really a pain. The rest of the install would have benn staigth if all hardware wad present, 8 bolt and nut missing from the kit, we had only 4 gasket wich cover only the cat section. We PRESUME that other joint don't need some... Sound with the flap open is loud and crisp. Very happy with that. We replace the remote by a momentanous 6 pins switch hidden in the center console. Check youtube for switch instruction.

    Best Bang For Your Bucks

    Shipping was super fast to my APO address. Fitment was a bit of a challenge. Hand driver side header bolt issues. You have to hang the header and raise the motor to get the #7 bolt on. The driver side cat mount hits the automatic trans mount (I have a manual). All in all, it takes some work but for the money and variable exhaust it's amazing!

    DO NOT BUY! ALL KITS ARE MISSING MID PIPES

    Varex is Australian, it's been a week since American muscle has been trying to get a hold of them, they haven't answered and don't seem to care. Makes me think they will be going out of business soon. ALL SYSTEMS CURRENTLY IMPORTED ARE MISSING THE MID SECTIONS. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FINISH INSTALLATION, AND THERE IS NO ETA OFF WHEN YOU WILL GET THE PIPES. I was really excited about buying this system after watching the videos. Got 3 boxes very quickly, and everything looked nice. All parts were packed in foam that was sprayed in around product, had to chisel away like a paleontologist. Parts look nice, but didn't come with instructions, or parts list, or the biggest piece.
