    Just wondering which x-pipes install without fitment issues. I have been told that the only ones that fit correctly are Bassani and Magnaflow.

    If anyone has used another brand without any issue, please let me know! Thanks!:D

    This is for an 03 Cobra

    I went with a Magnaflow myself and it fit perfectly. I haven't heard of any regular fitment issues with any of the major name-brand mid-pipes though.

    Thanks. I figure they all should fit correctly, but some may be better than others...

    i have always used bbk and have never had a fitment problem.. i love the way that they sound/look and how they hold up.. i also have used mac and i like their 3 piece design.. it gives you more adjustments to getting it tucked up on the car better so it doesn't drag.. espically if you lower your cars like i do... hehe :D

    Thanks for the info. I didn't want to buy a 3 or 4 hundred dollar midpipe since I plan on doing headers next year sometime.

    I had BBK's on my last Mustang. They were nice, but do pose problems with the tranny. I think I am going to either run the Bassani Mid-Lengths or the SLP's

    I have an SLP O/R x and it fits perfectly. It hangs a little lower though.
