Stock exhausts generally strangle high-performance engines, but BBK has the answer for Mustang owners. BBK Performance X pipes have been the number one performance brand that Ford Mustang enthusiasts have enjoyed for years. Their Extractor series X-Chamber mid-pipes benefit from the company's die-stamped X-Chamber crossover, and can give you 12 to 25 more ponies right out of the box.
1996-98 BBK direct replacement X-pipes feature 2.5” diameter CNC mandrel bent aluminized tubing and BBK's unique die stamped performance Xtracter center X section to ensure maximum flow and horsepower.
OEM - original O2 Sensor locations and factory style die-stamped flanges ensure a perfect fit and BBK In-house dyno-testing has shown solid gains of 12-20 horsepower depending on application.
ALL BBK full length X pipes are designed as direct bolt on to factory headers or any aftermarket shorty headers as well as of course BBK shorty headers.
Each BBK X pipe offers performance, quality and value that guarantees years of top performance for your Ford Mustang.
Got this catted X-pipe for my 98 GT early this season (had OEM & it was damaged & hanging too low--nice & loud though!) The fit & finish on this X-pipe is fantastic. I've been buying BBK parts since my 1st 1990 LX 5.0L--Quality doesn't disappoint. No clearance issues, nice & tight w/ frame (my GT is 1.5" lower than OE). Exhaust is a bit quieter (it was actually only partially connected?!) Most noticeable is the power increase. Mated this with Flowmaster American Thunder and picked up a much-improved seat-of-the-pants feel, as well as a nice growl. Amazingly civil at idle, nice sound above 3000RPM--how loud depends on how high your RPMs. Highly recommended to stay emissions legal.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I bought these x pipes for my mustang. These pipes look great. The pipes are being installed today.

I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
