Steeda or pypes cat delete

I was wondering if anybody had opinions on the steeda or pypes cat delete. I see steeda is aluminized vs pypes being SS. Would this make a difference? My GT never sees snow or salt.

If I had to do it over again I'd go with the off-road x but I can't complain I know a lot of people have fitment issues with the deletes especially the bbk one but my jegs bolted up fine with no leaks....to each his own

That's the biggest problem with them, is the leaks.

Yea I was worried about it myself before I did mine cause ain't nothing worse than an exhaust leak and wasting money on something that doesn't fit right but the Jegs are great no experience with the others or word of mouth on the other brands except bbk so I can't help ya there I will say they are kinda a pita to put in just keep everything loose until you get the fitment right or you will probably have problems putting a jack under the mid pipe it will help a bunch if your doing it solo

I just picked up some thin sleeve clamps at Napa and plan on replacing the factory clamps where the deletes meet the x-pipe. I've tried many things with the factory clamps, different torque settings from mild to tight as hell, clocked them in different positions, etc. Wrapping the joints together with a bit of aluminum foil and installing the sleeve clamps over that and will cinch it all down. I think the leaks will be gone with that. The clamps were $14.99 each at Napa by the way if yer interested.

These pipes rock! They are a total transformation for not only how your mustang will sound, but also how it will drive. I have only installed them and started the car to check the sound. I haven't installed the new tune, which I will do tomorrow, but I can already tell its a completely different world. It's gonna make drivin the car a lot more fun, sounds like raw unleashes horsepower! I totally recommend buying these as one of your first upgrades. They're inexpensive and a lotta bark for your buck! - See more at: Steeda 2011-14 Mustang Off-Road Cat Delete Pipes - Made in USA 053-S-100
They are designed to be an inexpensive quality part.

Best Regards,

If you search "easy seal exhaust clamps" on Google they'll pop up and you'll see what I'm talking about. Several different companies sell them. I got the aluminum foil idea from one of the diesel techs here where I work.
