Exhaust question

Ok I got a question. My 2002 mustang has flowmaster exhaust on it right now but I think the people that put this on made the pipes for it.. It was wielded from head to toe.. There no h pipe that connects the exhaust to the headers it just straight pipe.. Don't get me wrong it sounds good but I got to change it up some. I looking into getting the borla stinger system from summit racing but if I do get that do I also need to get an h pipe to close the gap?

---------- Post added at 01:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:30 PM ----------

And continuing with that question.. Do I need to get long tube headers or will the ones I have work

You don't need long tubes but they sound amazing! Also, you should look into an h or x pipe. Our motor have proven to perform better with some type of midpipe rather than straight pipes

Well when u get the system from them you have to have an h or x pipe I thought because it not going to be straight pipe.. And I want a mid pipe anyways because I had to cut my exhaust off when changed my clutch.. Not doing that again

Yeah, with the borla's I like an h-pipe. Gives them a little deeper tone

As far as performance both are almost equal. I have read article on testing this and on a 550hp gt the x pipe gained 2 extra hp over the h. So it's really about sound and personal preference m

@CodysMustang you should always have a cross over pipe whether it's H or X in configuration. V-style engines need a cross over in order to balance the pulses between the pistons firing from each bank. Without a cross over, V engines probably lose about 15 to 25 hp. The other issue with not having a cross over is sound. The deep throaty sound you would normally hear if you had a proper cross over is lost-the sound you end up hearing is that of two 4 cylinders ( 3 cylinders if we're talking about V6's and so on for any V-style motor). The first Dodge Vipers did not have cross over pipes due to the side exit systems that the design office wanted for aesthetics and they sounded like they had 5cylinder engines. Chrysler rectified the issue on later cars by running the cross over at the rear bulk head behind the seats--left side of engine exits on right side of car; right side exits on left. This kept the looks design wanted but met the performance criteria.

Bottom line, for maximum power, flow and sound characteristics you need a proper cross over setup.

Hope this helps!
