-The Mustang V8's have to have a mid-pipe for exhaust gases to merge.

I am interested in hearing more about this double helix midpipe. Wonder what it does for flow?
-The Mustang 3.7 Essex engines are the only ones that do not need a mid-pipe due to their cylinder firing order.
-The Double Helix mid-pipe is made by Corsa. They are manufacturing them for the new V8 engines, Coyote engine & the Chevy C7 platform. I believe it is made to eliminate the rasp and popping prevalent with the newer engine platforms.
To utilize one (Double Helix) on our cars would entail some creative pipe modification.
Back pressure is needed for an engine to run. A midpipe is needed when a group of cylinders fire at relatively the same time.
