It'll cut down the smell, but sound will deaden a bit. It will still sound good, but not as loud. Hell I like the smell honestly. It don't bother me anyway.

It will smell a little bit every now and then, but not nearly as bad as an off road pipe

Yeah just took off my xpipe off and installed my stock mid pipe and it's back to normal cuz it's filtering the exhaust but I miss the sound. Maybe I'll try a catted x pipe and see how I like it

Yeah no cats are smelling especially city driving where you're not moving much.

Wow that's kinda making me reconsider going with offroad pipe.

Are you sure it's not an exhaust leak?

The ”smell” is fuel and fumes that were leftover from combustion. The reason you dont smell that ”smell” with cats is because the cats have a honeycomb filament that reaches several hundred degrees from the hot exhaust passing through them. Once the cats reach several hundred degrees they burn that leftover fuel and fumes from combustion, thus no ”smell”.

My Pypes catted x hasn't had a smell to it yet, although I've read that they can from time to time.
Have you considered just getting some aftermarket high flow cats and cutting them in to to your off road X?

The stock pipe has 6 cats and as explained before, heats the **** out of the exhaust gas to burn off any leftover combustibles, getting a 2 catted aftermarket pipe will cut down on it some but not totally. The stock pipe also sucks up power vs the O/R or a good catted aftermarket pipe. Honestly if you don't like that exhaust smell I dunno what to tell you. If you just want the sound and like the way the Mustang is as a DD fine but if you plan on any performance, get used to that glorious glorious smell.

Nope, not unless you need your exhaust to be super OMFG loud and honestly a good catted pipe does not muffle the sound all that much. Performance wise you will see 0 gains if you've got a set of high flow cats now.
