I had the pypes lt an x pipe. Quality was top notch, fit perfect. I've also heard they were knock offs of kooks. I've never heard the kooks in person, but the pypes sounded great.

Kooks is top quality and expensive. A pipe is a pipe. Ur basically buying the prestige of having kooks

You're also paying the fact its American Made with loads of R&D, kooks is also a thicker metal material with much better welds. Pypes isn't bad by any stretch however you can cut down costs considerably when there is no R&D involved and its outsourced.

I'm a dealer for both, I haven't personally had an issue with either. I have a full kooks exhaust on my 13 Boss and the sound is incredible.

I also have the kooks set up, very quality craftsmanship, written every cent, and so is the sound! I'm a firm believer in doing things the right way the first time, even if it means spending more money. I took a big risk going with Kooks being that they are expensive and this is the first car I put this much money into, but no regrets here!

I have kooks long tubes and x pipe also, no complaints here. Great product, no leaks after install from the header flanges. I don't know about the Mustang aftermarket, but for Datsun stuff I do, the header flanges get worse as price goes down.

I got the 1 and 7/8's version and they make my car feel insanely faster! Plus, supercharger prep was a big choice in the size.
