1968 Mustang Mid-pipes

The mid-pipe might not get the glory that your car’s headers or muffler do, but without it, neither one will work right. Connecting your engine to your car’s tail pipes is what mid-pipes do. Along the way, they facilitate important exhaust gas expansion to help your car make maximum power and produce the rich exhaust note we expect from a Mustang. CJ Pony Parts offers nearly 300 different 1968 Mustang mid-pipes, so you won’t be hurting for choice. It really comes down to how you want to tune your car’s exhaust system whether an H-pipe, Y-pipe or X-pipe is the right choice for your car. Read on for an overview of the different styles of 1968 Mustang mid-pipes we have available.

1968 Mid-Pipes

A Selection of 1968 Mustang Exhaust Mid-pipes

All of the 1968 Mustang mid-pipes that we carry at CJ Pony Parts are machine-bent and finished to the highest standards, but they use distinctly different designs. Depending on the way your car’s engine delivers power, one style might suit your ride better than others. The descriptions below should help you decide how to select the right mid-pipe for your car.

• H-pipes: These are the most common 1968 Mustang mid-pipes on the market — and the most popular. You can use an h-pipe on a period-correct car to deliver great power and retain the loping idle we associate with an old-school hot rod. The H-pipe’s signature sound comes from the way that exhaust gasses are allowed to move between the right and left pipes, but are not forced to do so. This allows for some expansion, but doesn’t have the high-rpm smoothing effect of an X-pipe. For this reason, H-pipes tend to deliver the best power gains in the middle of the rev range, perfect for a performance street application.
• X-pipes: Like their cousin the H-pipe, X-pipes get their name from the way the left and right exhaust pipes connect. These pipes feature a contoured collector that guides streams of exhaust between the two sides of the system evenly. An X-pipe system tends to have a smoother idle than an H-pipe setup, and it also tends to produce a higher-pitched exhaust note when you hit the gas. This type of system is derived from the technology used in modern performance car exhausts. It’s best applied on cars with engines that are tuned to deliver maximum power at high-RPM.
• Y-pipes: If your 1968 Mustang’s mid-pipes need to be able to mount to a single header, the easy solution is to select a Y-pipe design for your car’s mid-pipe. These types of systems are most often found on six-cylinder cars, but are not uncommon on 289-powered Mustangs as well. Thanks to aftermarket tuners such as Magnaflow, who are known for their Y-pipes, you don’t have to sacrifice performance if you’re using a single header. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the power delivered and throaty voice your car will have after you mount up a custom Y-pipe.
