hey guys is the ford racing xpipe that installs after the stock cats worth the money....? I dont have the cash fpr headers and cant go off road due to it being a dd and i live in dfw so inspection requires emmision tests... What could i expect on whp gain with just the xpipe...?

I wouldnt expect much of a gain from just the x pipe. But a very nice exhaust tone. I would personally go with the magnaflow catted mid pipe. One of the best in the market

I was under the impression that messing with cats at all could affect the ability to pass inspecion and all are considered off road...

Ya you have to have cats to pass inspection. Are u just wanting sound or do you want to replace the exhaust for more horsepower?

Re: Ford racing clamp on x-pipe

You will gain nothing but sound with the clamp on. The OR mid pipes make a big difference in these 5.0s some people are making just as much power with a OR mid pipe as the ones who spend the money on LTs. You can always buy the OR mid pipe and get a tune for that plus a tune for stock mid pipe and cats. Switch them out for inspection then once you have your tags pop that OR pipe back in and you are good to go for another year.

If money or warranty isn't a problem then go with what DDTMC said, that's probably the best bang for the buck.

There would almost certainly be no gains. It's not the H that's an issue so much as the cats, and if you don't change them then no restriction has been removed.
