H pipe

Do they make a catted H-pipe for our v6? How come I can't find one anywhere? Or any information for that matter. I live in Cali and need the cats to stay on. Should I just get a custom one at an exhaust shop? I'm not a fan of x-pipe rasp so I'm going to pass on that.

If you want to change the sound, have a shop replace the hybrid x/h with a regular h. Keep the cats and resonators.

MRT does make a Catted H pipe but its meant to work with the stock headers or shorty headers. The MRT will not work with Longtube headers unless you have an exhaust shop make you a new flange. I live in SoCal and theres a place called Orange County Mufflers that does custom exhaust and flanges and they also use stainless steel parts not aluminized steel which will rust here in cali since we go from hot to cold weather. The Mac Pro Chamber H pipe will only work with Mac Longtube headers. Im actually debating on getting Mac Longtube headers and getting their H pipe or a custom H pipe with the Mac Longtube headers. The bbk headers you lose low end torque versus the Mac headers that are slightly smaller diameter then the bbks so you should gain more torque over the BBK's. Torque is what we need for our V6 mustangs. The MRT and Mac H pipes do sound better then the X pipes out they are less raspy. ARH also makes a catted H pipe for our cars. If the ARH or Mac Headers were out at the time I bought my Longtubes i would have chosen those over the BBK's

Awesome man thanks for the info. I'll probably end up doing mac shorties with a custom H, but I'll check out those catted H's first.

Just get a GT oem H...why spend money getting one custom if you dont have to. Plus the hot to cold factor is not why it will rust. Its the salt in the air being so close (if thats where you live) to the coast... also depending where you live if they salt the ground in winter then you will have rusting issues, but again you wont have that issue using the GTs OEM H pipe...it fits quite nicely too.

With the different size (2.25" vs 2.5") and the difference in placement of the connections, the GT won't fit

You seam sure of your statement...care to wager? Plus the GT is 2.75" shrinks to 2.5" at the "H" connection then goes back to 2.75"

yes yes, it sounds "too big" but the flow is much better and paired with shortie headers it has no negative effect.

I thought bigger pipes were actually negative to our cars performance? I read that on another thread. Or maybe I misunderstood.

I have a high flow catted H-pipe that i had made by the exhaust shop here and I love it. A little raspy because the cats are the size of my hand, but none the less great power adder. I've been toying with the idea of taking it off, selling it and going catless again. I didnt like catless at first because of the roush axlebacks i had at the time, but now with two other exhaust axle backs obtained, i feel i can test the waters again. Debating whether to make it a hack job by patching it up again, or just buying it outright and selling these.

sigh... damn car gods, always so hard to please

Whats the size of your piping? I may consider this if you decide to sell. Ive been toying with the idea of using GT cats in place of my current stock cats. No idea of the size IF there is a deference between the GT's and the 3.7's (they share the same intake air box and filter). Got any video or sound clips of the setup?

The GT exhaust is 2.5 inch opposed to the V6 which is 2.25 so it wouldn't be a direct bolt on.

That was my thought. Would definately need to get a flange and piping for it to work, but like in the GT H pipe it goes from 2.75" to 2.5" in the H connection point back to 2.75" so i wasn't sure if they did something kooky like that for the cats. Either way I think its worth the experiment.

Mine is not a GT exhaust. It is the UPR H pipe bought off lethal performance with High flow cats by magnaflow welded in after bank two o2 sensors. you are indeed right though with the 2.25inch diameter.
let me know if you would like these though. I am located in VA, but go home to nyc pretty frequently and can either meet you half way, or ship if the price is right. PM me if you'd like. I truly dont mind getting rid of them, but they are still on my car for right now. so i would just need a couple days to take it off and ship.
if you do however decide to go off road instead, i highly suggest the MAC prochambered one, or an h pipe for down low power like i have. It truly makes taking off a blast.

Do you have any exhaust clips? I'd like to hear that

Gave up trying to deal with my livewire tuner in the cold. Its being a pain in the *** to turn the two step off, and gave up. But either way i think it sounds pretty dang good.
