    I have a bbk h-pipe (with cats) with flowmaster 40's . I want to make the car louder if I put an off road h-pipe on would it make a big difference in the sound or am I just waisting my money?

    (Will I gain much more hp with the off road?)


    Thanks Garrett

    I dont know how loud your car is but i'm running and X pipe not sure what kind maybe just something custom with dual chamber flows that are cut off in the rear no dumps nothing they just end after the flows and no cats and it's loud as all get out i've had people tell me they know when i'm comin over cause they can here me coming for so long it's really a simple setup but i would'nt trade it for anything

    It will make it sound a bit different and a little louder if its off-road, it will sound a bit more hollow with no cats, sounds good though, performance wise i heard from a local mustang shop you only get like 2 or 3 hp. But you will get a nice sound.

    Do it. Off road pipes are pimpin. Your car will be a lot louder over a car with even two high flow cats. I love mine. Only thing that worries me is the man :police: taken a peak if I get pulled over

    Im not convinced it will even cost you anything. If you have a mid with cats those things new go for 350+ and an offroad is in the 200s so you might be able to just sell yours and get one for no cost or even trade someone. Just depends, it will make it louder thats for sure though.

    Well I have mac shorty's and I get complements alll the time on the sound. I just want it louder. I may take it to a muffler shop and have them cut out the cats and replace that with pipe.

    My car has Mac shortys and a bbk O/R X pipe with a Ford racing cat back. There is one point in the mid rpm range that is very loud to me! I'm think of changing to something quiter later. My daughter's 95 vert has and O/R H pipe and 2 chamber flows and stock tail pipes and has a pretty good sound to me. You will get 10 different opinions if you ask 10 different people. I say listen to some cars and go with what you like. Just remember if everyone else can hear it so can the popo! :police:

    To answer your question simply....


    YES, it will be significantly louder!

    YES, its worth it!

    YES, you can free up a couple of ponies!

    YES, its cheaper than your current pipe!

    YES, its LIGHTER than your current pipe!

    YES, you can probably offset the cost by selling your current pipe!

    YES, you're a FOOL if you don't do it!


    Anymore questions?!
     
  14. Not only will you free up HP and TQ

    You will getting better gas milage

    You should also consider headers... they will yield much better sound, power, gas milage, and will allow the motor to run nicer...
