    Cool upr x pipe and exhaust questions

    Hoping to get a upr x pipe.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...MEWA:IT&ih=015

    Is anyone running this pipe? It was between this one and a mac prochamber, but cost seems to have won out. $100.00 vs. $275.00. The extra 175 saved can be used for some rockers or the rest of the exhaust. I can't imagine there being that much of a difference in performance between the two.
    Btw, the headers purchased are jba shorties, mufflers = borla xs's,
    All that is left to get are flow tubes, clamps, hangers and tailpipes.
    Any suggestions and advise are appreciated

    if I didn't already have an X-Pipe,I'd buy it.You can crew a plug into the extra hole,and,I like the two piece design.Mine is like that,and makes installation a breeze.Your flow tubes will probably have to be lengthened a few inches.The Stang is shorter than our cars.That's easy stuff for any good muffler shop.I'm also using Stang tailpipes,although they also had to be lengthened a little.Again,no big deal.A real dual exhaust will really be a lot better than that fake setup.A difference you'll actually be able to feel.

    Cool, sounds pretty straight forward. Pypes makes some good stuff as well. Looks like your mods are definately up to speed.
    Which of these flow tubes would you go with?

    Also the band style clamps might make a tight seal w/o crushing the pipes and make disassembly easy.

    the pypes seem like a better deal. Those are the clamps i intend to use on my exhaust so let me know how they work

    I like the flow tubes in the first pic.Less bends.As far as the clamps,I can't say.I had all of my pipes from the mufflers back welded.I am just that way.The flows are welded to my mufflers,and the X-Pipe is bolted in.Nice and solid.Some people prefer clamps,it's a matter of personal prefference.I love the Pypes x-Pipe,but the one you showed up top also looked fine.If you can get it for cheap,I'd go for it if it isn't damaged.Save some cash that way and have a few extra bucks for the flow tubes.Every dollar counts.

    The jba's look freak'n killer and are next to indestructible.
    There's a set that has been on my truck for 155k miles making the purchase of another set an easy choice.
    The stainless borla's look well made and another good choice. The only visible drawback is the 2.5" inlet pipe gets necked down right where it mates to the muffler. No telling why they did that but you can kind of see it in the pic. Also they'd probably be too quiet for Boss but maybe the jba's and the x pipe will wake them up. Hopefully the upr x pipe is as well made as these. I'll post more pics when the parts come and are getting installed.
    Thanks for the help
    Mike

    never cared for the borla sound. my moms 04 cobra has some, i will say it sounds mean when its romped on, but down low theres not much sound. How much did those headers run you?

    Great deal, around $125-$150 used off ebay. They were recently coated, but it might not matter if header wrap is installed over them.

    They were tested at Anderson Ford Motorsport as being one of the quietest but better performing mufflers.

    I agree they won't sound as good as a flowmaster or ultraflow, but the car isn't quick and most probably shouldn't sound like it
