I did not know that. I have the Ford Racing GTB's...they're Ok. Tame with a bit of growl. But I've been looking for something more aggressive. That opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for me now

So then the question becomes, H-pipe OR X-pipe. I have read, good and bad, about both. The most predominant comment being the X gives a more raspy, ricer sound.

Anyone with one or the other that can speak from experience? Or anyone that did one, didn't like it and changed to the other?

I have the X pipe and have yet to hear the "raspiness" that is commonly talked about. I have some videos on You Tube (can't link to them from where I am at the moment) both in the driveway and at the track. I can't tell the difference from my X to a set up with the H and the same mufflers.

It's a little hard to hear over the xcharger but here is a pass

I can't find a comparable one with the H pipe (H pipe to dual GT take offs) right now. I have the FRPP X pipe going back to dual GT500 take offs; but the GT500 up until the 2009 model year just used the stock GT mufflers for the automatic so nothing special about them.

Retro_Pony,

I agree with JimC. I too have an X pipe and there is zero ricer or raspiness to the sound. Just a nice growl to it

Due to the duals not really adding any noticeable HP and a little better sound, I decided to keep my single Pypes Streetpro exhaust. Cosmetically, dual exhausts do look better on a Mustang. I know it doesn't sound like a GT, but it sounds better than stock and is inexpensive. =-) Just my 2 cents.
Here's a quick vid to hear my exhaust.

Take the music track off that video and we could hear the exhaust better
