We have completed our X Pipe Prototype which will include a High Flow Cat and Race Pipe option that can be swapped out via V Band Clamps. We were able to increase with this free flowing design with the added scavenging affect of the X pipe itself. Pricing has not been finalized at this point, once pricing is available I will update this post. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to ask.

Key Features:

100% Polished 304 Stainless Steel
Comes with X Pipe and High Flow Cat
V Band design Make Changes Easy
Includes all hardware
The system will bolt up to our Signature Exhaust system.
Increase of 12+ rwhp on our Mustang Dyno with the Race Pipe option.
The High Flow Cat showed an increase of roughly 8-9 RWHP.


These pictures are not the best but you will understand the concept. This is a prototype unit, the production pieces will be the same finish as our other exhaust systems.

High Flow Cat & Race Pipe ( Interchangeable )



X Pipe



Bolts up to Active Autowerke Signature Exhaust System Shown Here




Here is a video with the Xpipe (Race Pipe) option.


Guys, we need more videos, get one or two from insdie the car with the windows down, maybe even going through a tunnel at WOT. You get that and I will you

Exhaust is shipping out as I write this (mine's in Ill.)

X-pipe is 1-2 months away.

That is correct. We have shipped out the majority of the exhaust and will be shipping the remainder by early next week. I will work on getting more videos,etc on the X pipe. Please bare with me. Thanks again for the patience...

I would be curious to see a test that shows CFM flowing through these new cats compared to stock. Everyone on this forum can find some reason to discredit a dyno test. I'm curious how much more CFM flows through these new cats? Can you test them on a Flowbench?

Any chance we'll get to see some CFM comparisons between these cats and OEM cats?

Havn't seen this question answered. Can we purchase the race pipe without the X pipe? And will the race pipe bring up a check engine light cause of the o2 sensor? Are you guys working on a solution to that?

Hey,

As of right now the race pipe will not be available without the x pipe, I will look into it as an option. You have full control of the factory ECU and you will not have to worry about that.

For those of you waiting on the pricing I really apologize for the wait but I will release it once I have production pictures. We appreciate your patience and we look forward to working with you all
