This is in response to several requests I've been getting for a descriptive mod list.
No more mods currently planned, this is the final walkaround video.
I forgot to mention a few mods during the video, so I'll add notes along the way.
Thanks to my son Chris for being my videographer!
2006 Mustang GT Pypes Off Road X pipe Daily Driving Loudness in Car
Quick video demonstrating the volume level of an Off Road X pipe in daily
driving sort of conditions.
Mods on the car are CAI, tune, 3.73 gears, pypes OR X (duh) and Magnaflow
axlebacks. The magnaflows are about the tamest aftermarket muffler there
are for these cars so depending on your axleback it could be a lot louder.
This is just meant to demonstrate the sort of volume level you can expect
inside the car in normal driving conditions with an OR mid pipe. It really
is a big difference in volume level compared to just the axle backs.
Personally I really like it, but if you live in a community that is really
picky about sound violations or you do a lot of late night/early morning
commute stuff this might not be for you!
I do get on it a couple times throughout the video but I never put my foot
all the way to the floor and never get above 4500 RPM. Keep that in mind as
you listen, it gets louder if you want it! Like I said this is just an
example of daily sort of driving.
MY OPINION (for those who want it) on the X pipe VS H pipe debate: X MIGHT
and I stress MIGHT make a little more power, the X design does flow better
than the H, but on a 3500 pound street driven car the small difference in
power between an X and an H pipe is not going to be something you're going
to notice. Either design if you go with an off road pipe will give you a
noticeable power improvement over the stock pipe. So, the choice comes down
to sound. X is raspier, more 'exotic' sounding if you will. H is deeper,
rumble-ier more 'old school' muscle car sort of sound. I personally like
the raspiness of the X pipe, I love the way it snorts and pops when you let
off the gas around 3000 rpm. But some people don't like that, and that's
cool too. It's all personal preference my friends.
ALSO, you might notice a sort of ticking almost Exhaust leak sort of sound at times, especially
at lower RPM, I DO NOT have an Exhaust
leak, I've done some research and apparently this is a normal sound with
the Pypes brand product specifically. It bugged me a lot at first but I've
gotten used to it now. If I had to do it again I WOULD NOT get the Pypes
product. Just my 02 cents on that matter.

Mustang GT Review 300 HP
2005 Ford Mustang GT
Review, with a 4.6L V8 pushing out 300 horsepower, it will more
than satisfy the need to go fast. Not only is it fast, but the interior is
well designed and comfortable. Road and wind noise are kept out well, and
the Mustang turns into
corners with ease, staying flat and composed throughout the corner. With
antilock brakes and traction control, the Mustang is safe as well.
