Awesome Exhaust!

Roush Extreme Cat-Back Exhaust + PHRP H-Pipe = AWESOME!

 

Upon experimenting with several exhaust systems, I elected to go with the Roush Extreme Cat-Backs back in October: http://www.teamshelby.com/forums/index.php?/topic/61404-exhaust-roush-extreme/page__p__1045578__hl__roush__fromsearch__1#entry1045578. While it sounded amazing, it still seemed to lack a deeper tone that I desired. I friend of mine has a Roush 427 with the same exhaust, but his set-up sounded better than mine. The only difference was that he had the factory H and I had the X, but would that change the tone so dramatically?

 

While wanting to maintain the cats I thought about trying Shelby’s or PHRP’s H-pipe. Based on the aforementioned, the good reviews on the H set-up for the KRs, as well as the 11/12 GT500s, and consulting with Wes (PHRP), I elected to go with the PHRP H-pipe.

 

While I was apprehensive about cutting out my X-pipe, the installation was simple (check out grabber’s thread for detailed instruction: http://www.teamshelby.com/forums/index.php?/topic/41998-my-h-pipe-and-kr-mufflers-sound-clip/page__p__686943__hl__h-pipe__fromsearch__1#entry686943). The connections are solid and leak free with an OEM-like appearance.

 

Conclusion: I cannot believe that this simple change has made such a dramatic difference in the exhaust tone. It is deeper, throatier, and meaner… It now sounds better than my friend’s Roush; and no drone. This is, without question, the best sounding exhaust that I’ve ever heard.

I have to get my own clips up, but it sounds similar to this:

 

 

Steel....the vid sounds good, I myself am on the fence about this set up....but for right now I have KR mufflers on. I love the way it sounds on the vid but that prob had headers on it too.....The H-Pipe is going for $350 and the Roush CB is for $599....now I have to find a local muffler shop to do the install in Jersey....BTW I love your avatar

Thanks... $350.00 for the H-pipe? Wow, the price went up!!! PHRP/Wes was selling them for $225.00 w/clamps as few weeks ago. I see that he has them on ebay for $325.00... Give him a call, maybe he'll offer a TS discount: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MUSTANG-GT-H-Pipe-W-Clamps-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem20b74a8a7bQQitemZ140514069115QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

Or give the original KR H-pipe a shot.

I have one of each, a PHRP and an original Shelby KR H-pipe. Both are good pieces.

... agree. I see that the Shleby H went up as well. It was only $75.00 a few months ago.

I'd really love to hear that set up sometime. Do you attend any of the local car shows or cruises here in the Burgh?

 

 

Hey Speedy... Occasionally... Caste Village, Waterfront, Mineral Beach, Vintage Grand Prix… The weather has been awful lately, so the car doesn't get out much.

Yes, those are the cruises that I go to. I live 10 minutes from Mineral Beach in Jefferson. Haven't been to any yet this year, thinking of Mineral Beach this Friday if it ever stops raining. I'd love to see those chrome Razors on a 500! They look really nice in your pics.
