I bought this for my 1990 Mustang LX 5.0 I had the Dynomax UltraFlow but wanted something with a bit more bit to the sound. This Pypes kit is one of the worst fitting exhausts I've ever seen. TWO different exhaust shops helped put this on as it would not come close in my driveway. The first one gave up. The second shop spent 4 hours on it and said "We've yet to see a Pypes system that fits". Wish I knew that ahead of time. Hopefully this will save future buyers.
Does it sound good? Sure does. Does it look good? Well, not bad, but no where near as good as the Dynomax (or any other cat-back I've seen on Mustangs).
Keep in mind this is about the 13th exhaust i've personally installed so I have some idea of how these should fit. LateModel was GREAT with helping me, but unfortunately they can't fix a manufactures issue. Oh, I don't want to forget this: Pypes states "you will need to cut off 2-3" for most installs". Here's the problem; the second you cut it, it can't be returned, yet BOTH shops stated they could not properly fit this without cutting it. They also had to weld it in various spots to even get it close to fitting properly.
I'd recommend that Latemodel drop the Pypes systems from their lineup.
If you're working on a Latemodel Mustang, Pypes' innovative products, and superior quality allow you to make your exhaust purchase with absolute confidence that you are getting the best materials, best fit and best value available anywhere. Pype's aftermarket performance exhaust components give your Mustang more horsepower and torque while adding a great new exhaust tone. These x-pipes, h-pipes, headers, and cat back kits are direct fit and 100% bolt on, making installation quick and easy.
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.
