Airraid or h pipe?

Well I ordered flowmasters and a bama tune others then that in stock. Which would be a better choice from what I can tell h pipe is purely sound ( not going to delate cats it's illegal here ) and the air raid claims 10 hp with tune I'm going to do one or other I need to save money lol thanks lol

You have an h pipe stock...so I really doubt without deleting the cats you will get must sound difference. Deleting the cats is illegal everywhere technically. Some of us live in states with no emission checks and there for don't care, others do and have people that they can pay to pass them.

Also if you do a CAI buy the steeda. Much better product!!!

Yea as much as I tell people not to get a intake without a tune, you're going to tune it plus the other product you want is an hpipe with cats so it's barely going to be noticeable.

I went to my dealer the other day to have my tires checked out. I always goto the same lady that we have been for years, there was a younger guy next to her when I came in and they both joked about making sure to take the tune off before you come in for normal check ups etc.... so it really depends on the dealer you goto. establish a connection and get in with one of them an they will always take care of you

I think you missed the point of his comment...lol...

OP doesn't want to do 3.73 gears and void warranty yet installed a tune that technically voids warranty.

but you are correct, find the right dealer and they don't care.

if my car came with 3.73 why would upgrading it cause a warranty issue?

his car doesn't, he has I assume 3.31 or could be 3.55 gears and wants to switch to 3.73 gears. You can have Ford do it of course, but it will cost twice as much as another shop doing it.

If you have another shop do the work and something happens Ford doesn't have to cover the work done.

OP,

I would go with the 3.73 gears or CAI over a catted H-pipe. I'm not sure if you were going to use high-flow cats or your factory ones again, but using the factory cats will net you near nothing from before. Plus, the volume would basically be identical, too. Thus, I vote for gears or a CAI.

However, you will get a volume increase if using high-flow cats and you'll gain a little power too. That's up to you though, I'm not sure how strict your emissions testing is.
