X or H Pipe

I have a 2010 Mustang Gt & I just recently bought my Roush Catback Exhaust but haven't installed it yet. I want to get an X or H pipe soon but idk the difference of the two. I want the one that gives you the most HP but at the same time I want my car to sound amazing. Any Suggestions?

x gives about 1 or 2 more hp, but in most peoples opinion, h sounds better. exhaust wont really give you any noticable hp unless you do headers also.

if you want, i have a brand new OR hpipe im selling.

im selling for 150 plus shipping. you probably get 1 or 2 hp from it, but again, nothing noticeable either way.

I would expect more than that. How about with long tube headers? & is the h pipe suitable for my car? I see you have an older model & a v6

i dont think it would work with lt headers, but i think long tubes will give you the most hp/tq out of any exhaust setup. it will work with your stock headers though. the 2010 stangs are the same performance-wise to the 05-09 stangs, just a different body style.

also, it may get more than that, i could be wrong...

I plan on getting headers after the LT headers. Do I have to buy the complete set? Do certain pipes fit certain headers?

If you have parts to sell please post them in the classified section for sale. Selling/advertising parts in tech threads is against forum rules.

Re: X or H Pipe

If you want to do the LTs with mid pipe then wait and get a combo at the same time. It will save you money and headaches. Do you have a tuner already?

Ya I have a tuner. So far I'n my car I had a JLT CAI with tune. I'm just curious that if I go with an h pipe do I need to get headers at the same time? I was researching & it says I need headers to go with the h pipe or vise versa

Re: X or H Pipe

You can do a bolt in x but you will have to change that out later for one that works with your LTs. I would just wait and do it all together

The combos are to much to buy at one time. I want my roush catback to sound louder. Any sites wherei can buy a bolt on h pipe? I like the h pipe more than the x. IMO

My concern is if I can get any H Pype that can fit my stock headers & then later on gets headers that be added to it. I'm looking towards the bbk offroad h pipe & then get the bbk lt headers

He means if you get an x or h right now to fit your current setup you can, but come that day you want to put long tubes on... well your x or h pipe you bought will no longer fit your long tubes as the make shorter ones to fit

Do you know of a site that I can but h pipes that can fit stock headers? In looking on AM & they all require headers. How about if I buy lt headers. Will they fit my stock mid pipe or do they have to be installed with an x or h pipe?

I figure AM would have them...but no you will always need a shorty x pipe for long tubes....unless I am completely wrong and they have something different but I'm pretty positive

I was looking on AM & all the x or h pipes I saw needed to be installed with headers Lol. I'll recheck

I saw that they have a bolt on x pipes but not H pipes. Weird

HFM23 are the h pypes that people have recommended me. They will fit my stock headers but I was curious. If I later on decide to get lt headers. Would I be able to cut them so they can fit?

No, unfortunately it's one way or the other. I would recommend just saving up for the complete LT set as was said earlier. That's what I did. It's an investment for sure, but well worth the final improvements and sound!

If you get long tubes they won't work but you should be able to get shorties or equal length shorties that will bolt right up.
