MBRP Cat-Back Exhaust System Street 3" Stainless Steel XP Series GT 2005-2010/GT500 2007-2010
MBRP XP Series Stainless Steel 3" Street Cat-Back Exhaust System for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 GT Mustangs and 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 GT500 Mustangs.
Ford modular engines produce an amazing exhaust tone but it is rather subdued from the factory. Upgrading the exhaust, especially with a cat-back, is a top priority for most Mustang owners. MBRP's cat-back is subtle and civilized during normal driving but seriously aggressive when you stomp on the go pedal. Crank up the decibels without experiencing annoying drone at highway speeds. Improved sound is accompanied by a a healthy bump is horsepower as well thanks to minimal bends, smooth piping and high flow mufflers. One-piece over-axle pipes allow for easy install making it easy, even for the DIY mechanic.
XP Series exhaust systems are designed and built to stand up to the harshest road conditions. Construction comes from T409 stainless steel, which is cheaper than the T304 stainless steel found in the Pro Series exhaust, but contains the same materials needed for long lasting and durable life. MBRP's XP Series exhaust is rugged and dependable, fighting off rust and corrosion. If the Pro Series is out of your price range and you want the next best thing, the XP Series is just for you.

Jesse: Hey, thanks for having ME.
Bill: Appreciate it. I'm familiar with MBRP from the truck market. How long have you guys been in the Mustang and Focus market?
Jesse: We've actually been in the Mustang market since the S197 car launched in 2005. We started with an axle back and it sort of progressed from there.
Bill: Okay, what do you have ... What is with you today here?
Jesse: This is a spattering of some of our car stuff. Right there you've got one of our new part of our new black cat-back for the '11 and up Coyote car. Right here is a tail pipe section from a Ford Focus ST. Set of long tubes here for a 5-liter car, so sort of the whole gambit here.
Bill: This looks like almost a truck pipe, but this is the exhaust pipe for the Coyote?
Jesse: That is a 3 inch diameter cat-back, yeah.
Bill: You said this system's available in the black finish? And it also comes with a polished tip, I'm assuming?
Jesse: It's available in stainless aluminized, which is like what this pipe is here, and the black coating, as you see.
Bill: That's for all 2011 and up?
Jesse: 2011 to 2014, yeah.
Bill: And the same with the header? Now, tell us a little more about the headers you make for the Coyote.
Jesse:The Coyote car is obviously a real bolt-on friendly one, and one of the main things that a lot of people do, once they start getting into the mods is the long-tube headers. We make long tubes that are direct bolt-in; they're only available actually in our T-304 stainless steel. We also have a couple of H-pipe configurations that will work with either our cat-back or the stock cat-back.
Bill: You have H and X pipe or just the H?
Jesse:Just H. We did tons of testing between H and X and we really honestly could not get any power gains like we could with an H-pipe; much like what the factory comes with in contrast to the X-pipe, so we rolled with the H-pipe. Ford obviously did a lot of research when they built the car, and we saw the same results, so we rolled out with the H-pipe.
Bill:It's always a constant battle of X versus H, but it's good to see you guys did the research to make sure the H was the one to go with your header. That's available for Coyote, anything for the GT-500 yet?
Jesse:We do, we have all the GT-500 cars covered currently, so the '07 to '13, which ironically, the '11 through '13 uses the exact same header.
Bill: The exact same header, okay. Tell us a little bit about how MBRP got started.
Jesse: We've been around about, well, since 1995. We started as a snowmobile, sort of power sports, exhaust manufacturer. Our owner is a vehicle enthusiast, so MBRP actually stands for Martin Barkey Racing Products. Right around 1998/'99, he was really getting into the trucks, modifying them, because he was going to all these power sports shows and towing trailers; so he got into diesel pick-up trucks and noticed that there was really no offering for after-market diesel exhaust. That's sort of where we got our soiree into automotive, and there it evolved into gas pick-up trucks, gas cars, and then you have the company we have today, 20 years later.
Bill: Where are you guys based out of?
Jesse: We're based basically about an hour north of Toronto; Huntsville, Ontario.
Bill: Okay, and all your production, everything is made in-house?
Jesse: Everything is made in Canada, yeah.
Bill: Excellent, excellent. We're talking about the Focus market, the Mustang market. What else do you do Ford-wise? Trucks, Tauruses, anything like that?
Jesse: Ford-wise, pretty much everything that has an EcoBoost is on our horizon. Focus ST is obviously one that we've rolled out with; we have several parts available for it. Ford EcoBoost F-150 is another market that we do really well with. We have several applications available for it. Ford Raptor is a huge one for us. We do really well with our black stuff for the Ford Raptor guys. Really, almost anything Ford truck or enthusiast-related, we either have something for, or have something on the drawing board for it.
Bill: I'm sure you guys are excited about the 2015. You'll have something available for that as soon as it hits the market?
Jesse: We are. We are itching to get our hands on one, yeah.
Bill: Cool. Well thanks for coming!
Jesse: Yeah, thanks for having us.
