As far as quality. I noticed they are significantly cheaper than other brands. next step up (price wise) seems to be BBK?

are there any common problems for these systems?

By system, I mean long tube headers, x-pipe, and axle-back.

My friend has pypes shorty headers, x pipe with high flow cats, and the cat back pypes system and it sounds great. He just did the right installation for his headers and hasn't had a problem with anything. Sounds very mean and has a good tone too.

I had the Pype Bomb axle backs, the weld and finish quality was good, but fitment wasn't. I adjusted them 3 different times, but only got them close. As a comparison I just installed the Roush Extreme exhaust and they basically fell into alignment with very little effort.

Pypes longtubes are copies of kooks. Thank the chinese for that. I have a little hate game going on. Kooks are an awesome design for power and torque. As much as I would love to buy a cheap version of kooks I can't give my money over based on principle. However if I had no moral fiber I would choose Pypes over BBK every time.

I have the LT headers and h pipe with Pypes Violators. I think the quality is great. I had no issues with my axleback install. Fit just right first time. They sound awesome together. The guy I got to install them said they look just as good as the kooks and he fools with kooks all the time. He said all welds looked solid. I highly recommend.
I understand your issue with chinese parts but I do not have the luxury due to cost. So I had to go with them.

If you can afford it go with Stainless Works LT and catted X-pipe great quality but pricy that is what I run along with Magna flow magna packs.

Good to hear. I'm very much on a budget. Pypes might be a good option for me.

On kind of a side note, has anyone had any experience with brenspeed installation?

I've only heard great things about Brenspeed. No personal experience with them, but I wouldn't hesitate to go there from all I've heard. If you start a thread asking I'd bet you get nearly nothing but positive results.

Plus it says on their website if you're from out of town (like you I think) they put you up in their guest houses during the install. Bedrooms, big screen tvs highspeed computers so you can monitor allfordmustangs.com:laugh:. It sounds like a worldclass speed shop:bigthumbsup

BTW Have you gotten the gears installed yet?

That's a negative, lol. Coming up with an extra $250 is a little harder than it once was. got a couple extra bills need paying. Owe my sister 150 and owe 300 on a guitar...

ugh... not fun times... before too long i should be able to come up with it, but planning ahead is fun...right?

I have Pypes Violators and very happy with the sound I get from them. I have steeda CAI that helps getting a lower tone.

Installation was a bit tricky to get everything aligned, but it looks good on the car now.

Very good quality for the price I paid!

I installed pypes LTs, x-pipe, and pype bombs and had no isses with the install or the quality. I had then on the car for 2 years before trading the 06 GT in for the current car. debating on puting a set on my Saleen, I just don't knoe if I feel like spend 9 hours of quality time getting to know the bottom of my Saleen. Might take longer on it due to belly pans.

Well, looks like for the sake of keeping it street legal, I'll end up going with BBK. I COULD put cats on a pypes system, but it requires some modification to the parts, and I don't have the ability to do that.

Of course, who knows...

I added cats to mine to tone them down. all it took was a hack saw, a tape measure, and a trip to a muffler shop to weld up the end result. I don't trust exhaust clamps whith my life. Adding the cats was actually the easiest thing to do and the welding only ran my $40.
