1968 Mustang X-pipes
If the exhaust system on your car is worn down, or you want to match your race-tuned motor up to a more free-flowing exhaust system, an X-pipe might be just the part you’re looking for. Our 1968 Mustang X-pipes are machine-bent and available in two to three inches in diameter. Make sure you measure your headers and know what diameter to use when selecting an X-pipe for your car. In some cases, you may need to trim excess piping to get the perfect fit. We recommend contacting your local muffler shop to perform the trimming if you don’t have the proper safety equipment and cutting tools available.
An Extensive Selection of 1968 Mustang X-pipesOur selection of 1968 Mustang X-pipes includes quality pieces from some of the most respected names in the business such as Ford Racing, BBK, Borla and Kooks. We offer them all at great low prices.
If you’re in the process of building a fully custom exhaust system for your car, you may want to explore the different headers we have available. Many of them can be matched to specific X-pipes that we stock to create a sonorous custom system.
How an X-pipe Improves Your RideHow do X-pipes improve your car’s performance? It has to do with the way that exhaust gasses move and expand when leaving your car’s engine. The center section of the X-pipe forces exhaust gasses from both sides of the exhaust system to mix, smoothing the flow of gasses as they move towards your muffler. When exhaust gasses can exit the car faster, your engine can rev easier and make more power. The design is commonly seen on today’s high-performance sports cars and race cars.
Thanks to their aggressive design, X-pipes tend to be seen on cars with high-strung engines. Unlike H-pipes and Y-pipes — the other common mid-pipe designs — X-pipes cater to high-RPM power delivery and tend to deliver a smooth idle. The result is a higher-pitched, exotic exhaust note closer to what you might expect from a modern mustang than a classic muscle car.
If your car is a six-cylinder Mustang, the unique style of the header requires a specific mid-pipe design to mount properly. Luckily for you, we carry the 1968 Mustang tri-Y-specific X-pipes needed for this application. You can continue creating the dialed-in exhaust system you desire for your straight-six-powered ride.
