I'm looking to remove the cats off of my 2011 v6 stang and don't know what piping to purchase. I have looked on American Muscle and don't see what I need. I'm not looking to get headers. I'm looking to buy a x pipe that will bolt up directly into and have the cats removed. Any help on what to purchase that would be great. Also, I have Flowmaster mufflers on my vehicle.

I live in a area where there is no emissions test.

Re: Exhaust Help

You want an O/R X or H pipe. Although the best way to do this would be to get aftermarket headers.

When I look on American Muscle X pipes are too short without buying headers.

Re: Exhaust Help

You could get a shorty H or X pipe then go to a local exhaust shop and have them cut the cats off and weld some pipe in their place then put the midpipe in all welded together.

2011 Kona Blue,

Unfortunately you're correct. We only offer Shorty X-Pipes to run with a set of long tube headers, That's the ideal set up for best power gains and exhaust tone.

However I'm definitely going to get this suggestion over my purchasing team and see if we can bring in a full length X-pipe for the V6. As soon as I have more information, I'll be sure to let you know!

I appreciate the suggestion, I wish I could be more help!

- Dan

Tanks so much. That would be great to see if you guys could get a full length x pipe for the 11 v6. If not, I may just go with the headers and shorty x pipe option. Do you know if the current BBK shorty x pipe is a bolt on kit or does welding need to be done.

Again, go to lethalperformance.com. They have them for around $200. X and H full length. AM is great but they aren't the only website around.

Any thoughts on headers. Is the 800 dollars worth the added hp and sound gains of the headers or no headers.

Depends on what your goals are? The gains you'll see with LT's will be all top end. You'll lose some bottom end which our cars lack already. If your looking for sound or if you track your car then spending that much may be worth it for you.

Re: Exhaust Help

If you are going LT's you will absolutely need to gear the car. It will fall on its face from a dig in 1st gear (as if it doesnt already).

Gears are definitely next on mod list. Currently have stock 2.73 gears and want 3.55 or 3.73. I think with that upgrade in gears I should notice a big difference in acceleration. I have an auto and think with the 6 speed, I am leaning towards 3.73 gears.

I'd just grab one of lethals mid-pipes. Will see gains and will leave money for other things. Just my opinion. Believe you need a tune though.

I saw on lethal performance web site they had a ford racing performance x pipe buy it left the cats on. The other was a H and X fill length mid pipe. There all around 200 which is certainly less than 800 for the BBK headers and shorty mid pipe. Any thoughts on the Ford racing mid pipe that leaves the cats on. What kind of less power gains than removing the cats and going with another mid pipe.

The full length will give better gains. Not sure what the gains are with the FR but I'd think minimal.

If you want to keep cats, you could grab lethals mid-pipe and grab a set of pypes hi-flo cats welded in.
