Offroad H-pipe people in here...

  1. Anyone go from having an aftermarket catback (whatever brand) with an aftermarket h-pipe with cats, then switch to an offroad H?

    If so, what was the sound difference between the two setups? DId you like the difference?

    I have Mac Catback with Mac catted h-pipe right now. Not as loud as I thought it would be. I'll have to say, my 2002 GT with just Mac catback and stock H was a lot louder. :shrug:

    Never did here it with the stock h-pipe, but considering going offroad H maybe even Prochamber...

    just wanted to know if it is worth it sound wise. I like setting off car alarms :D
  2. there is a huge difference. I went from the mac cat back to bbk long tubes with o/r h pipe and it is much louder. I get alot of :nice: I had a o/r h pipe on my 00 gt and it sounded great, I will never go back to a catted h pipe.
  3. I can't believe the stock H sounded louder than the aftermarket, something might be wrong with it.

    On my GT I had a Bassani X w/ cats and switched to a BBK O/R. BIG difference in sound, felt like I lost a little torque (picked up .15 ET though), but worth it for the sound alone.
  4. O/r H

    I have a Mac Catback and Mac O/R H on and it is loud as hell and sounds Great! Gets a lot of head turns. Ditch the Prochamber and just get the 120 dollar economy O/R pipe!

  5. I had a BBK O/R H-Pipe on my 1996 Cobra, but I didn't like it so I went back to stock. So if you are looking for a pipe send me a pm. It is basically new and has been welded at the crossover.
  6. Not sure of the difference as I have only had this car with these mods. But I set my Explorer alarm off from time to time with no cat, BBK offroad h-pipe and 2 chamber flowmaster exhausts with 4:10 gears. Truely love the sound-shane
  7. I have the BBK offroad H-pipe + two chamber flowmaster with turndowns. Sounds like it should! Once I stop being so lazy and put the l/t's on... ooh it's gonna sound sweet!
  8. KU Cobra:

    Do you have any sound clips of your car? I'm more than likely going to go with the offroad H, and at $129 or whatever it is, even if I don't like it, it's not that much. I will still have to swap it out anyways with my stock one when I do my emissions. I will probably have some cat shells welded onto it just so it "looks" legit in case I get pulled over.

  9. I have a vid of my ex-'96 Cobra with BBK o/r H-pipe and 2-chamber Flows on Apex's dyno that I can send.
  10. O/R vs. catted is night and day when it comes to sound and performance. Go for it. You won't regret it.
  11. I have the BBK O/R H Pipe with Borla Side exhaust, its definitely loud. Sometimes you get a crackle between shifts or when letting the engine hold back. Sounds very cool.
