hpipe

I've heard that my 12 5.0 has a factory hpipe. Would there be a big difference in installing a whole new off road hpipe versus just removing the factory cats and welding a pipe in its place?

Yes your factory pipe is an h pipe but no I wouldn't just weld pipes up. U should definitely buy an offroad xpipe, which just means that it comes with the pipes for you to remove the catalytic converters. I bought one by pypes on amazon for 300$. In doing this you do need to have a tune on your car letting you know the computer that U have no cats or u will get a check engine light. But the x pipe has great sound and I'm extremely happy with it

Aftermarket is much lighter but performance wise its probably close to the same results. I would buy one just in case you wanted to switch back. If you ever sell our trade your car it will have to have cats on it.

Don't weld one find one to buy but depending on your state and you intended driving for the car you may or may not need cats. If you don't need them get an off road x pipe! if you need them find one that you can get hiflo cats for. Either way it should help the flow a little bit, nothing significant however. You should get headers too thats where you'll get much better flow and more hp.
