2007 GT exhaust advice

I have an 07' GT with a magna flow axleback system on it. I am wanting to put an x-pipe or an h-pipe on it but there are alot of options out there, anyone have any advice on which to get? I obviously want to get good sound out of it but I also want the improved performance. So x or h-pipe? high flow cats or no cats?
thanks!!!!!

HP?

I picked up 5 hp with my O/R H Pipe and MAC mufflers. The benifit was a free flowing and quick Reving engine. The best would be and sound is good is your current mufflers with L/T Headers with X Pipe and Hi Flow Cats. Or some Mac ceramic shorty headers with H pipe.
I will add some Pypes M80's befroe the axel to get a little back preasure to get them dialed in. Torque went down by 4 lbs so I would like to get this back and I believe this will improve some #'s down low.

Thanks...there are a lot of options to go with...right now I am not going to change the headers but when I do I am going with shorty's. my next step after the H-pipe is cold air induction. So another question have you had any issues with Check Engine lights coming on after the install?

E codes

Ok do yourself a favor get a Tuner and one the best supported is the SCT. You can get the Tuner then a K&N drop in filter if money is low. Why I bring this up because if you go with a Off Road Style pipe X or H you will need to turn off the rear 02 sensor. When you get a Tuner you will list any cahnges so the Tuner will adjust for your MODS.
I would start with a CAI and Tune. I use Brenspeed 93 octane tune and the JLT2 with the SCT X3. The JLT3 has taken over from the JLT2 CAI. The 3 has eleiminated the metal Maf Housing that the 2 had and is 110mm vs the 90mm Maf Housing.
If you have a few minutes view Brenspeeds Web Store and they also have a full service shop so it is not just a warehouse selling you stuff. The C&L Racer is nice as well.

Hi 07beachGT

Couple things...

Typically the X will give you a higher pitched (raspy) sound, and the H will give you a deeper sound. So if you know the pitch you like, that info should help.

Here is a link to our SCT with no cold air intake.
V8 Mustang Custom Tuned SCT X3 Programmer

Here is a link to our SCT with the JLT 3 which is our most popular.
JLT Series 3 CAI 110mm & SCT X3 Tuner Package (2005-09 GT)

Hope that info helps!!!! Also here is a link to our Brenspeed Forum. There you will find video's of our facility along with handy posts on tech articles, installs, and specials.

It's the

It is a good starting point a Tuner and Brenspeeds videos made loading a Tune easy. Plus if you have a question they are not such Superstars that your below them. In fact they are very patient and they will return calls. These are some of the reasons I choose them.

Hope this helps.
