exhaust cat vs axle

I was looking at pype bombs that all you guys brag about then I saw pypes cat back with resonators up near the mid pype for only a little bit extra...thoughts and experience would be nice looking at 300 vs 450-500 for cat back

I would say just get axkebacjs and then buy a lethal performance O/R H-Pipe

I really want to pair a lp h pipe with my Borlas. But here in California I'm worried about all the emission.

How hard is it to install the lethal mid pipe?

Larger piping will cause loss of back pressure which will rob you of HP unless ur FI

If the system is made for the car it wouldn't lose power plus a good tune will help you out. Now if you custom make you catback with a huge size then ya you will.

Yet headers add, not understanding how a 1/4 bigger pipe will lose power when a 3-4 inch easier I creases? Jw

Think real hard bro. And look at the exhaust manifolds and headers. The exhaust manifold has larger outlets than the stock headers so your pushing air into a smaller pipe that is almost like a wall on the edges which causes restriction. Headers make the inlet size to make the outlets on the manifold. now headers simply let the air flow freely the way it shouldve been made. Also the headers are bent and welded together in a specific way to keep good back preasure. If you have giant piping for headers it would be like running open headers and cause issues. So the reason the piping being larger and causing a issue is it causes a loss in back preasure. Unless you have a good chambered mufflers or FI I would not recommend larger OTA piping to anyone. Those are my thoughts on the subject that I didnt jusy make up. Ive read dozens of forums on this. Im signed up for 5 different mustang forums. I do research before I buy anything.

Resonators on top of resonators. It's deeper.

You've inspired me to do the shorty headers, roush, and catted H. I want some resonators. Can I buy some for a 99-09 GT from AM? Or magnaflows or the 5.0? You're spot on with exhaust. I just like bustin your balls about the LT header promoting lol
