What X pipe to buy?

Hello everyone. I'm stuck on what x pipe to buy. I had my eyes on the BBK off-road x pipe, UPR off-road x pipe, and pypes off-road x pipe. I know those are pretty popular and I was wondering if anyone knew which one would have the best fitment for my 2002 mustang GT. I want a nice x pipe and willing to spend 150-300$ for one that fits the best and sounds the best. I am open to other x pipes too if you know any better ones. Also I'm buying just a non catted pipe.

Also I have SLP resonators welded in if that changes your opinion on the X-pipes.

I like the sound that the x pipe makes. I feel like it makes it way more crackly. And I like that.

Thanks for your opinion. I'm leaning towards them too. Do you feel like they give more of a deeper tone then BBK because I do. I feel like BBK is too raspy for my likening.

Get the UPR x pipe. Good fitment. Never really heard of any complaints. Hugs well to underneath from what i have read. I have the BBK pipe becuase i got it slightly used real cheap, if i were buying new I would probably go UPR. Im considering an off road H though, my BBK has a slight exhuast leak (needs new gasket i think) im wanting to try something new i guess. The BBK will definitely give you the x pipe crackle if thats what you want.

Plus UPR is a true X design. BBK is more of a slight "chambered" x pipe if you look at the pics of it, kind of in between IMO a true x and something like a Prochamber. Ive never heard a Prochamber in person that I know of but i know several people swear by them on the forum. With the LM 1s it will sound like a semi jake brake on deceleration, lol. Im not a fan of the off road x and LM1s, i like a catted x with the LM1s or a off road x with the LM2s (more of an actual muffler instead of a larger peice of pipe "resonator"). I prefer more of a deep tone which i get with the x and the magnapacks.

MAC ProChamber. No Doubt, best sounding, best performance increases. Dyno results are on the web. Sample videos are everywhere on YouTube.
~Passenger side manifold needs a new gasket when pipe is unconnected:




Hi-Flow cats fit within the down pipes too. Catylitic converters that are 11.5" or shorter fit, no problem. I am a fan of hi-flow cats on all my Mustangs because of the deeper exhaust tone, added low-end torque, and added HP from having them on (Disputed opinion, but proven to add H.P., none the less.).
