    I recently installed a CV Fabrication Y Pipe / Resonator Delete as a tester and I have to say I am 100% Satisfied and would def recommend this product!

    First off, the quality of the welds on this thing is top notch. They cut the Y portion of the pipe very long, so the exhaust should flow almost equally between the 2 pipes. All stainless steel of course, which gives it that Shiny New out of the box look ;)

    Installation is about as easy as it gets with regards to installing such a mod. Both ends of the pipe are sized perfectly, with the single side that connects to the downpipe sliding right into place using the stock exhaust clamp, and the Y end has a decent split which allows your stock piping to slide into their pipe for easy clamping.

    There is NO drone on this product, i can assure you that. After using it for a few weeks at highway and city speeds, you cant really tell its even there. There is some "throatiness" added to the stock exhaust sound (I only cut my resonator out, stock exhaust before and after). Its not "too loud" and def not "ricey" or whiney sounding like ive heard with other exhaust mods on the ecoboost. If you want something subtle with a def HP increase, this is the way to go. Their Price point is also Way lower than anything else out there, nearly cut in half, so you cant beat that!

    I think it took about a week for the car to "learn" the new exhaust (I'd say common these days with nearly any bolt on mod). The car def pulls a bit harder in the lower gears.

    Some advice / comments on the install:

    install is as expected, cut your stock resonator out, slap the y pipe on. 2 cuts, 2 new clamps.

    I used Ramps and a jack to really be able to get under the car. If you have access to a lift, or want to take it to a muffler shop youll def save yourself some time, but that can be said about nearly any install under any car right.

    Be sure to cut your stock exhaust LONGER than the Y pipe, as the stock exhaust slides INTO the CV Fab Y pipe. Youll have plenty of tolerance with this method (you can always cut more off). Measure the Y pipe, and go an 2 inches at least before the slits. This will allow you to move your stock mufflers in / out a bit to make sure they are Straight after install (be sure to check this before you really clamp everything down and lower the car).

    also, because of their "slip into" design, you dont need super straight cuts (somewhat difficult with a sawzaw laying under the car btw). if you end up with a goofy cut or jagged edges, dont worry about it; it wont matter.

    Youll also be dropping several lbs by losing the stock resonator. that B*tch is heavy lol. and fwiw, so is the stock exhaust; I def recommend having a buddy under there with you, or an extra jack or something to hold all the exhaust in place during install; takes a bit of muscle to keep it all straight when tightening up those clamps.

    all in all, I am quite happy with the upgrade :) Ill be posting a video or 2 from both outside and inside the car to show you there is no drone and a bit more sound outside the car. I think the digital sound piping (whatever you want to call it) also handles the mod just fine since the change is fairly minor.

    If all goes well, install should be 2 hours or less, depending on your tools and experience with this stuff.

    The staff at CV Fab were excellent and patient with me on this, and the products are top notch. Go CV Fab! 20190613_184006.jpg 20190613_181847.jpg 20190613_181841.jpg 20190626_194809.jpg 20190626_194814.jpg

    I believe they will be selling it for $150 and itll include clamping hardware. So 100$ less than everyone else. I looked trust me lol. Couldn't believe the prices for a simple y pipe for a mustang. You can get one for a 350 z with flexes in it for like $90 on ebay

    Plus the CV Fab one has a really long split at the Y, those others look tacked on at a 60 degree angle, like they weren't even trying

    One last note unrelated to the Y pipe specifically, Fords exhaust is 2.25 inches, not 2.5. I think I have been confused thinking it was 2.5 bc of these 2.5 inch downpipes. Wish they would have just sprung for that extra quarter inch, allow for some more flow lol.

    It's not up on the site just yet, but we're looking at the $139.99 to $149.99 price range. The final product will include upgraded band clamps for flexibility during installation similar to what OP used.

    Feel free to shoot over any more questions if you guys have 'em!

    The plan right now is to continue supporting and revising our current line of Mustang products based on customer feedback as we're pushing into the F-150 platform to complement our Mustang parts. You never know in the future, though! :)

    Jason,
    I am almost ready to purchase the 3” catless DP from your company, just a couples questions about the Y-Pipe. I’m curious if you will offer It in a 3” input reduced down to 2.5” dual output,?
    I want to keep as little restrictions in the exhaust as possible, and my plan is to purchase the 3” adapter for the DP and then either run the 3” magnaflow 12288 which is a 3” input and dual 2.5” output or try and find a Y-pipe that offers the same setup. Please let us know when it may be available for purchase. Also very interested on when your race Intercooler will be available..thank you very much for your time.
