Which H pipe?

I don't think anyone has done testing on the different brands of H pipes. It would be too involved and costs would be too great.

Because once you open that can of worms, then people will wanna know what each and every H pipe brand sounds like with every set of mufflers. And we know each set of mufflers is expensive. And it can get even more involved later on if people wanna hear it with shorty headers and such.

So between the 3 h pipes, you are looking at 600+ or so for the mid pipes. Then labor. Then if stock mufflers isn't good enough, people might request each and every set of mufflers. And possibly headers.

I doubt anyone will want to invest the time or money for that.

I would personally say, any H pipe you go with should be fine. Just make sure after the install, you have no exhaust leaks.

I installed the Heartthrob H Pipe on my 2016 GT. Even with stock mufflers, the car sounds great. Nice deep burble. Install is the same as all H pipes on these. It will require cutting the resonator off. Which is no biggie.

I snagged my h pipe for less than $140 on AM and it goes off sale after today. Back to about $150.

Yes.

Here is a video of my car with the H pipe.

Everything else is stock. Will be adding some stuff to my intake and deleting the Sound Tube. Maybe I can hear the exhaust a tad better from the inside once I ditch that dreaded thing.

American muscle and cj pony have a ton of videos plus a lot on line and on you tube. We went with Ford racing x pipe with side pipes and we are really happy with the sound.

Summit Racing has an H pipe in 304 SS for $174 and free shipping. My '16 is a daily driver in NJ so I need an H pipe that can hold up to road salt.

True. IF you run 87 octane gas you lose 1% of the 435HP. Do you feel 4.35HP lost?

Recommended fuel as per my owner's manual. So I did a little experiment. Find out my mileage and performance is the same. I very rarely drive over 100mph so the extra 4 HP isn't needed, plus I don't race my convertible. Ha ha!

Just me, but I would absolutely never run a 11.0:1 compression car on 87. Even with it having knock sensors and being able to pull timing automatically, that is such a low octane for that compression. Even if you don't drive it hard. You're also losing much more than 4 horsepower.

Well Ford says you can run 87 octane so obviously it's plenty safe sense they built the car.


And you're right, it's more than 4 horsepower. But not much more because it's 10.

Do you read your owners manual? Ford recommends 87 octane gas. Ford has been quoted that the maximum horse power lost is 1% on 87 octane. I'm not making this stuff up.

No one reads owners manuals anymore. That's what facebook is for.

I installed the Mishimoto H-pipe on my 2015. Immediate improvement in tone. While I'm interested in getting different mufflers, I'm not sure I even need them now!
