Bbk or upr o/r xpipe?

Looking at buying a bbk or xpipe off cl for 100obo or upr for 120 I believe is what it was listed for. Any suggestions? Already have bbk shortys with high flow cats and flowmasters mufflers.

I like my cars to have cats. Id spend the money somewhere else like on gears or pulleys. Then again I dont know your power goals and what mods you already have or how you feel about loud exhuast. Ive used my previous mustangs as daily drivers so for me constant loud exhuast drone was a turn off for me. Thats my 2 cents but if I had to pick between the two Id go with the bbk, I've never had a problem with bbk's exhaust fitting properly the first time.

Hi, It will depend on the sound you want for your car. Also does your state require and emission test? In my state your car will not pass inspection without the cats.

My buddy said he'd give me his Mac pro chamber for free but it's off his 03 cobra so it's a 4v. That wouldn't work would it?

Sounds good +1! That's the setup my buddy has on his 03 termi. Are the 99 cobras the 4v as well like the 03/04 or 2v?

I can't decide. It has bbk cai accufab tb and upper plenum bbk shortys lowering springs(not a 100% on the drop though, guy said like 2 in front 1.5 in back?) sfc Kenny bell strut brace caster camber plates upper control arms short throw shifter etc. not sure on what gears it has yet going to take a look when i do the exhaust.

Might possibly be my next buy after I get some new wheels and tires. Went ahead with the bbk xpipe picked up last night for 75.

Nope not bad at all for a 6 month old pipe. And come to find out my old mid pipe was a bbk xpipe with cats. So not I'm curious as to whether I should keep my old one or sell it

Who's not down to free up some tension weight. There's a lot of good little factors to do with pullies.

I like the idea and I've read up on them and only question I have is the possible problems they can cause (charging, cooling, etc) when I had my car up on the lift my mechanic was telling me that the crank pulley didnt look stock? Now when I bought the car the guy I got it from didnt know exactly everything on the car. Just from what I've gathered there's a hell of a lot more than I expected. Any way to tell if it's aftermarket or not? If it is that could lead to why my lights and dash lights just barely dim at idle or I might be looking at replacing an alternator soon. Not too sure.

Only way to tell is compair to looks of stock one. And it will make a minor difference in cooling and charging issue. Do you have any current existing problems with your cooling or charging?

Not cooling, but charging I don't see it being a problem just my lights flicker and dim barely noticeable but just catches your eye
