About Pypes Performance Exhaust
One of the principal ways of getting a lot of bang for your performance buck is to replace your cars compression-bent exhaust system with a mandrel bent system.
The simple fact is that a mandrel bent exhaust system will flow twice as efficiently as a compression-bent system and we all know that efficient flow is one of the main ingredients of power.
Pypes Performance Exhaust supplies complete mandrel bent, performance exhaust systems for American performance vehicles ranging from the 1950s to the present day.
We also offer both gas and diesel truck systems for the most popular American Pick-Up Trucks!
Our systems and accessories are fabricated using stainless steel materials that will provide their owners with long term service and satisfaction. Pypes products are backed by our limited lifetime warranty!
Most of our systems include a custom designed X-Pipe at a considerably lower price than others that include no crossover at all or just a basic balance tube with their systems.
A typical Pypes complete system will include an X-Pipe, a pair of mufflers, a set of tailpipes and all of the clamps and hangers required to install the system.
Pypes also performance matches systems with a choice of their own distinct mufflers to best suit your horsepower and sound requirements, rather than forcing you to buy one type of technology that may not be best for your application.
We sweat the details…
We offer a great price on high-quality stainless steel exhaust systems that are painstakingly designed to deliver great fit, sound and value!
You will find our products at the most reputable dealers of automotive parts.
Be sure to visit us at one of the many events we attend over the years!
Give us a try. You will not be disappointed!
|Q: Are Pypes systems and components covered by a warranty? |
|A: All Pypes mufflers and systems have a limited lifetime warranty*. All muffler delete systems are sold as-is only and do not carry our warranty. |
* Lifetime warranty is for as long as you own your vehicle (applies to pre-1981 vehicles). Post 1981 vehicles have a 5 year warranty on pipes.
|Q: Do the Pypes systems come ready to install? |
|A: Yes & No, All systems are mandrel bent for various body styles but because of different headers, mufflers and options some systems may require cutting pipes to size. Also an occasional tweaking of a pipe might be necessary to fit certain models. Please refer to our instructions for more details on your model. |
|Q: Why doesn't my X-pipe reach my headers? |
|A: This is normal. The X-pipe should mount directly below where the tailshaft meets the driveshaft. You will need a straight piece of pipe to attach your collector reducers to the X-pipe front extensions. |
Exception: Later model Mustang X-pipes are direct bolt on!
|Q: Why do my downpipes angle toward the ground? |
|A: Assuming you have the correct pipes for your application, check both your trans mounts and motor mounts for correctness and proper installation Also double check that the pipes cant be re-adjusted at the manifold flange. Finally, the exhaust system is only as good as the headers you have installed. If they hang real low then your exhaust system will hang low. We highly recommend you choose quality headers that FIT properly. |
|Q: Is it true that the X-pipe will interfere with the removal of my transmission? |
|A: No, The Crossover fits BEHIND either an auto or manual trans. Transmissions can easily be removed by disconnecting the front of the exhaust from either the manifolds or the headers and letting the system hang down. |
|Q: Should I base my muffler choice on the highest flow rating? |
|A: Not always. In dyno tests higher horsepower cars (400+) almost always benefit from maximum flow. Lower horsepower cars (300-) can actually lose some low end torque and peak horsepower by using maximum flow mufflers. In these cases, choose the Pypes muffler that fits your sound & price needs as your priority. |
|Q: I have smaller than 2.5" manifolds, can I use your 2.5" exhaust? |
|A: Yes! In all cases that we have 2.5" downpipes we have engineered them to bolt up directly to your existing smaller manifolds without modification. |
|Q: It seems as though 3" exhaust is the popular choice these days. Is there any disadvantages? |
|A: Yes! A stock horsepower car with 3" exhaust can lose noticeable low end torque and affect performance. Also, 3" pipe usually requires increased installation precision because of limited clearance issues. As a general rule, cars with less then 450hp should use 2.5" exhaust. Cars in the 450hp range could potentially benefit by a 3" crossover and still keeping 2.5" tails. Cars with 500hp + should utilize 3" or even larger tube size. |
|Q: Can I install my new Pypes exhaust system myself or should I take it to a local service center? |
|A: If you have never installed an exhaust before, it just takes patiance. You may need to cut pipes to length on some systems. Having a lift makes the process much easier but lots of people install out exhausts on a car with jack-stands every day. Welding is a great way to seal the components of your system together but not necessary. Clamps are provided with all of our complete systems. Also be sure to follow our instructions when installing components. |
|Q: What are the advantages of Pypes Stainless Steel Systems? |
Stainless Steel is primarilly a metal alloy that contains chromium. It this chromuim content that gived the metal it's corrosion resistance. It's name is meant to imply that it will "stain less" then other alloys, and not that it is "stain free". We currently have two grades of Stainless Steel exhaust components available.
409 Stainless: The price is comparable to most aluminized systems on the market. This material is used on most of the newer cars produced today. While 409 Stainless will turn a reddish-brown color and may get a hint of surface rust, It will not rust through, allowing it to have exceptional corrosion resistance.
304 Polished Stainless: Highly polished with a nice show-quality finish. This material has excellent corrosion resistance. It may turn a bluish-gold color at the hottest points.
|Q: I was always told stainless steel isn't magnetic. Why does a magnet stick to my stainless steel exhaust? |
What you've heard about the magnetism of stainless steel is only partially true. Many grades of stainless steel are magnetic. It is only in the grades that have nickle added to their alloy, that loose their magnetic properties. We have noticed that our 409 Stainless steel products are a little magnetic but our 304 Polished Stainless steel products have little or not magnetic properties.
|Q: What is the advantage to having a ceramic coated exhaust? |
|A: Ceramic Coating not only looks great, it also extends the life of your exhaust almost indefinitely. Mostly its thermal qualities create significant additional Horsepower. Pypes no longer offers ceramic coated products but if you are interested in ceramic coating, you can get any of our products coated from another vendor.|
|Q: What are the advantages and dis-advantages of U-clamps, band clamps and welding? |
|A: Yes. Here are the major advantages and dis-advantages:|
||fast & easy
||fast & easy
|Q: Do I always get a performance boost from upgrading my Manifolds to Headers? |
|A: No. We have never tested a car or truck that lost HP after adding headers but some stock cars just dont seem, to benefit from the longer header tubes. It is better to get real results from other combinations similar to yours. See chart #7 for an example. Also visit our websites tech forums for additional info. |
|Q: How do I choose which mufflers to purchase? |
|A: It all depends on your sound preferance and performance requirements. Our website can help answer these questions or you can contact one of our representatives for help. |
|Q: Do I lose a lot of clearance after installing a 2½ or 3 X-pipe system? |
|A: Properly installed X-pipes DO NOT interfere with transmissions! Clearance is no different than a non-crossover system of the same size. |
|Q: I was always under the impression that open headers provide the maximum HP. Is this always true? |
|A: We were under the same impression. But in recent tests, we saw noticeable HP increase by adding an open X-pipe to the headers. |
|Q: If I have problems during installation, what is the best way to get technical help. |
|A: The huge popularity of the internet has caused a number of excellent Technical Forums to become available. Tech Forums are one of the best ways to get help and advice from professionals as well as fellow car enthusiasts. |
