JBA Headers/Xpipe Complication

I went to install my jba headers and when they take everything apart, they (the shop) asked me if I had brought the xpipe, I told them it was the one on the car...turns out to be that the modular offroad xpipe from American Muscle does not connect to the jba headers, I asked the rep from AM back in March if this was possible with the modular off road xpipe and he said yes...its not!!!!!! So now I have to pay three hours more and! I have to get another xpipe...funny thing is that the rep said..its modular and will work with jba headers lol wow...AM has been great but somebody forgot to drink their coffee that day and I shouldve done more research.

If its a shop that knows how to fabricate then they should be able to make it work.

Damn dude. AM wont do anything about it either. Exept maybe offer you some sort of discount on the x pipe. I would be pissed. Who did the install? Please dont tell me Mac! Steeda would have known there was an issue prior to touching the vehicle.

It is. It's your responsibility to do the research and understand fully the definition of "modular." AM very rarely steers anyone in the wrong direction, but people mistakes. It clearly states in the JBA Header listing what is needed. I still have a hard time believing that this wasn't a misunderstanding on your part rather then bad information from one of their CS people. And any reputable shop should be able to make the existing pipe you have work with no leaks, if not, you're at the wrong shop.

Hey,

I'm sorry to hear that you got some incorrect information from one of our reps. I'm not exactly sure how this information was given, considering it's on the product page and its also well known that a full length x-pipe that will bolt up to stock shorty headers, will not bolt up to long tube headers. Just based on length, this would never work. However, it's a common practice for an exhaust shop to cut and weld a flange onto a full length x-pipe to make it work with a set of long tube headers.

We can definitely help you out with a shorty x-pipe that will work with your long tubes. I'll make sure you're taken care of, since we had a break up in communication somewhere with the x-pipe. Please shoot me a PM with your order number and I'll make sure you're squared away!

-Dan
