When you purchase a Ford Mustang, you are given the keys to a driving-experience that your non-muscle car friends will certainly be jealous of. With an attractive body & sheet metal combined with a high-powered engine, your pony car will certainly turn heads on the freeway and on the track when given the opportunity to gallop. Many of the Mustang’s engine capabilities are thanks to the vehicle’s advanced exhaust system. Exhaust manifolds and mufflers anchor Mustang exhaust systems at the top and bottom respectively, but in order to reach the muffler, the gasses will need a safe haven to travel from the beginning stages onward.
That is where the Mustang mid-pipes earn their keep! Once the exhaust gasses exit the exhaust manifolds or headers and proceed through the catalytic converter, it reaches the Ford Mustang mid-pipe. Though the fuel reaches the muffler by way of the intermediate pipes, the exhaust gases would not get there safely if it were not for the hard work done by the Mustang mid-pipes.
While exhaust gasses exit the engine individually through four separate cylinders, the firing order causes an inequality in the pulsating fuel coming from the engine. In an effort to preserve the longevity of your Mustang engine and the condition of the fuel, Mustang mid-pipes equalize the exhaust gasses before they travel through the rest of the exhaust system.
Because it is constantly dealing with toxic exhaust fuel, it is important to closely monitor the condition of your Mustang mid-pipe throughout its lifespan. Though many factory Ford Mustang mid-pipes are reliable, nothing lasts forever. If you are looking to make any changes to your Mustang exhaust system, it would be wise to shop around for aftermarket Mustang mid-pipes at the beginning of your rebuilding process. Attaching stock Ford Mustang mid-pipes to aftermarket manifolds could cause a slew of problems for your exhaust system, and could prevent you from enjoying all of those upgrades that you spent so much time and effort installing.
