    Well I just happened to stumble on the Pypes vendor at Carlisle the other week and it was too tempting so I bought the midpipe. After 5 hours on two different days along with 7 stitches on my friend's head it was on the car. As far as the sound goes, I love it. It sounds really close to Wyotechs car which makes me pretty excited and I don't think there is much difference between a two valve and four valve SLP exhaust. :banana: Oh, and it's as loud as an offroad H and Flows and my check engine light is not on so I'm happy. What do you guys think of it?

    The tell tale signs of a battle with the 50 pound midpipe falling on my friend's head.

    sounds okay at idle? Sounds like a exhaust modded stockish mustang @ idle...

    which is sick ;] Cant get better w/o removing the cats or adding a rough Cam.

    but o/r h and flows aren't loud at all. Grats on the new setup.

    well it should be rough idle cams...plus you dont get cams for the idle sound, that is just a benefit.

    it sounds pretty decent, Im wondering if the crappiness of my old exhaust was due to my x pipe.... cause my flows sound kinda like garbage too.

    Re: Pypes Catted X and SLP LM1s

    Thanks man. It's weird how almost nobody on some forums like this one likes SLP, but on other forums, it's all anybody ever wants. :dunno:

    And like ANY exhaust video, the sound quality does not do the setup justice. A lot of soundclips I hear of SLP they sound raspy, but I really don't hear much rasp in my setup even at high RPMs. My favorite part is definately how it snaps when I am decelerating. One day I will get a sound clip of that because it is pretty cool.

    Finally, I recommend Pypes exhaust to just about anybody. They are waranteed for the life of the car and are relatively cheap (I payed $300 for my catted X). The fit was also superb. All I had to do was push my catback a few inches towards the rear of the car and that was it.

    ^^ When i had the setup paired with a mac catted h. It was okay Loud (comparable to flows +o/r h), but i also didnt have any RASP. It was mainly VERY DEEP, but it sounded like to many of the cars with straight pipes out there. What really got me is i took off next to a older car that was in bad shape and i swear both of our cars sounded the same. Raggly, so thats when i got rid of them. Overall, if there wasn't so many pickup trucks with straight pipes.. SLP LM1 would be a nice ass setup, but being theres trucks and cars with glasspacks it makes the mustang with lm1's sound similar which kills the uniqueness factor.

    I understand where you are coming from but everyone has their own taste. I feel that for every straight piped truck that sounds like mine, there are 15 mustangs with O/R H and flows. :)

    Also, i forgot to mention.. The H is going to make any setup sound deep, so pairing with the lm1's is mistake i think. IF i wouldve had an catted X i mightve had a different story since the exhaust wouldve been more higher pitch instead of the DEEP H rumble.
