    I have decided to get and o/r H-pipe for my 96GT with the stock manifold and Flowmaster cat-back (I am going for the "classic" Mustang sound). I have narrowed down my choices to Pacesetter, MAC or BBK. They are all within about $35 of each other price wise. I have read lots of reviews on the various vendor websites and all seems to have their pros and cons as far as fit / install is concerned. I'm just wondering if anyone here can share their experience with any of the brands listed above and has a strong opinion towards one over the others. Thanks for he help!!

    MAC is good.. BBK is good too. Pacesetter honestly is the bottom of the barrel brand, cheapest parts to buy and their quality shows that.

    Yeah stay away from UPR, the fit is horrific and customer service is non-existent ! I got rid of mine after 2 years. I'm also in the market. Let us know what you end up with.

    Good thinking with the H pipe. An American v8 needs that separation to hear its true roots.
