My bassani x-pipe w/ cats was advertised to increase my HP by 30, but that's nowhere near true. There were significant gains, but definately not 30! I mean, the effects it had were
1. it made my borla cat-back sound gorgeous!
2. I lost some low-end torque, but gained a good amount in the higher RPM's
3. My gas mileage improved (slightly, and only when I drove nice)

I mean, if you like the way your MAC cat-back sounds now, you'll really like it if you get the x-pipe. Since you've got 3.73's then you shouldn't suffer from a loss of low-end torque. You'll probably notice a couple tenths drop in you 1/4 mile time with your current set-up

by the way, I just checked e-bay. There is a bassani x-pipe with cats on sale with "buy it now" for $350. That's a pretty good price, considering I got mine for over $400. just thought I'd let ya know. good luck

you can look into a company called "car sound"...magnaflow dosent actually make their h,y,x pipes...they are made by car sound...kinda like steeda and bassani...you can get them MUCH cheaper from them instead of paying premium....and they have a catted h pipe for a 2002 allready...YESSS, i love the rumble and rasp of the h pipe

are there any differences between the magnaflow and the bassanni besides the price?

Thumbs up

I just installed a magnaflow catted x pipe in my 97gt,this is a good quality product ,it bolted up without any problems,the welds on the pipe were nice and its made from stainless steel so it wont rust.As far as the sound goes i think it sounds good with my flowmasters,also no loss of low end torque that i can tell and it feels like it has more power above 3000 rpm.

97gt248a - Where did you get it at and what did you pay, I am checking around to see where the best price is on it. I am running a magnapack catback so I figure that they should sound and work well together.

drunkenfarmer - I checked out that site, but they only have pricing for the seperate pieces, any idea what the see the whole catted x-pipe for?

Just got a 1999 Mustang GT, traded in a 1999 Mercury Cougar with some major problems.

I got it from houston performance for 339.99 +shipping which in my case was 18.00 ,their phone # is 281-893-6080. When you replace your stock h pipe be carefull when removing it and try not to damage the gasket between the r/h side exhaust manifold and the pipe,this gasket is 25.00 at the ford dealer.
