Straight pipes

Anyone ever got rid of their X or h pipe and ran straight pipes all the way back? If so did they like the sound or would it sound like a redneck truck? TIA

it's pretty ungoldly loud, but doesn't sound bad like most cars do with straight pipes.

Are you talking about running a divorced exhaust setup where the two pipes never meet?

Lol, like right now I have long tubes an off-road X and then straight pipes all the way back.. No mufflers.. It's sounds hella good. But the guy doing my exhaust said to get rid of the X pipe and to run "true duals"

That's called divorced exhaust.

So you're just looking for a change in sound? Because you'll lose some power going with divorced duals.

I do not know, I've never run that sort of exhaust setup.

An X or H pipe acts like an equalizer to some degree. The end result is an exhaust flow that exits the pipes as close to the same intervals as possible. This ensures that each cylinder receives equal back pressure.

There are physics and other mathmatical equations to show what I am saying, but I don't feel like looking at numbers at the moment (unless it is the price of gasoline dropping).

You also gain a deeper exhaust note with a married exhaust, at least with an H pipe. The X pipe flows a little better, but has a higher pitched tone. Both sounds are unique to the Mustang.

Of all the car's on the road, Mustangs can be distiguished by the music played by the exhaust without ever seeing the car.

The simple answer: Headers to pipe, to muffler, to exhaust tip is not good.

Headers to a mid-pipe with a crossover and then to the exit is good.

If you just feel the need for me to dig deep and remember physics and finite mathmatics I will do my best to provide a million numbers and letters that say it is best to marry the pipes. They like a perfect union. Exhausts like equality, and they like to become and act as one. You may now kiss the bride (as soon as that hot beauty cools down a bit).
