Mustang Mid-Pipe FAQs
What are the benefits of upgrading the stock Mustang mid-pipe on 2005 and later Mustangs?
The biggest benefit of upgrading the mid-pipe is a measurable increase in power. Ford engineered the factory H-pipe on 2005 and later Mustangs with 2.5" tubing (2.75" on 2011 V8 Mustangs) and only 2 converters, so it actually flows very well. However, there is still power to be gained by installing a mid-pipe with high-flow converters, especially the metal matrix type. Also, by switching the stock H-pipe for one with a X-type crossover, there will be substantial gains in the upper RPM range since that is where the X-pipe is strongest.
 
What are the benefits of upgrading the stock Mustang mid-pipe on 1987-2004 Mustangs?
The biggest benefit of upgrading the mid-pipe is a large increase in power. The stock H-pipe on these Mustangs use small 2.25" tubing and either four or six converters, depending on the year. Needless to say, these H-pipes are very restrictive and major power gains can be had by upgrading it to a high-flow, performance mid-pipe. Also, by switching the stock H-pipe for one with a X-type crossover, there will be substantial gains in the upper RPM range since that is where the X-pipe is strongest.
 
What are the differences between a Mustang H-pipe and X-pipe?
Powerwise, H-pipes boost low end torque while X-pipes produce more power in the top end of the rev range. In terms of sound, the X-pipe produces a smoother note compared to an H-pipe due to the fact that it more evenly equalizes the exhaust pulses. Most V8 Mustangs come from the factory with an H-pipe, so its rumbly sound should be familiar to most Mustang owners.
 
What are the differences between Ceramic and Metal Matrix catalytic converters?
Ceramic converters are the traditional type of converters used on factory and some high-flow aftermarket mid-pipes. These converters consists of one or more ceramic "bricks" that are housed inside the metal converter body. As the name implies, high-flow ceramic converters are designed with performance in mind and therefor flow much better than factory ceramic converters. Metal matrix converters are the cutting edge of catalytic converters and are made of a metal substrate that is typically rolled into the shape of a cylinder. This cylinder-shaped substrate is then welded inside the converter body, thereby creating a very robust, all metal unit that is more durable than any ceramic converter. Metal Matrix converters flow about 30% better than ceramic converters and are ideal for demanding applications, such as Mustangs with forced induction.
 
What are the different materials used on Mustang exhaust components?
  • 304 Stainless Steel: High chromium content stainless steel. This is a top grade material used to make exhaust components. Because of its high chromium content, it can be polished to a mirror finish and has superior anti-corrosive properties. This material has natural heat insulation properties so even in uncoated form, it makes an excellent material for headers.
  • 409 Stainless Steel: Titanium stabilized ferritic stainless steel. This is a mid-grade material used to make exhaust components. In fact, the factory stock exhaust system is made of 409 stainless steel. While 409 makes a good material for exhaust components, with time it can develop a layer of surface rust, but it will never rust through.
  • Aluminized Steel: Carbon steel with an aluminum chemical coating applied to inhibit rust. This is the most economical material used for exhaust components. Under normal conditions aluminized steel will hold up well, but surface scrapes can remove the aluminized coating and allow rust to develop on the base carbon steel. Aluminized steel does not hold up well in places with corrosive elements in the environment, such as road salt.
Are Mustang mid-pipes emissions legal?
The only mid-pipes that are 50 state emissions legal are the type designed for stock converters. Mid-pipes made for stock and longtube headers replace the factory converters and are therefor not for use on public roads.
