I am not 100% sure, but I don't think Bassani makes an h-pipe. I believe they only make x's but I could be wrong. Also, if you get Bassani headers and midpipe I would go with the Bassani catback, it will sound awesome.

Good choices with your next mods!

thanks, how about the suspention, does it look fine for a start
It all depends on what your going to do with your Bullitt... I run a set of spring that are a bit stiffer because I like to play on the local road course. The springs are a little stiff for a daily driver but still able to travel comfortably on most interstates. If you have question on springs contact Maximum Motorsport for reliable feedback. Here is my setup which works great for me, see "my garage" for photos on ride height.

HD Bilsteins
MM Road & Track springs 800#-300# (made by H&R for MM) w/poly islolators
J&M adjustable control arms
MM Panhard bar
Steeda X2 ball joints
Steeda bumpsteer kit
Steeda Offset A-arm bushings
Offset Steering rack bushings
MM CC plates
MM 4-bolt K-member brace
MM full length SFC

Tokico Illuminas or Koni adj struts/shocks (coil over if you can afford it)
MM k-member brace
MM cc plates
Sub frame connectors
very good foundation to start with.

Bassani does not make a h-pipe but a x-pipe delivers a little more hp and throttle response. What about brakes with all that extra go you need better stopping power. May I suggest the Hawk HPS pads for the street. Just my .02

awesome yeah suspention is the next thing, plus i already have the vortech on and 410whp and 420wtq so im needing some new pads and most likely power slot rotors. thanks again for the advice, ive never modded a car this much, the last car i did was my 68'coupe which i put a mild cam in it with better intake manifold, carb and some headers. never did suspention or anything more than that so im fairly new to the scene.

I forgot to add:
Offset steering rack bushings
pinion snubber, urethane
and get a performance alignment done.
Before my road race set-up I had a street/comp suspension on my Bullitt. Which consisted of everything mentioned above but I went with 350#[H&R] springs in front( Griggs coil over kit) and a 300#[H&R] in the rear. This set up allowed me to go to a track event or the drag strip and still have a nice ride for the street.

One other thing about brakes that I did. For the street I use my stock rotors with the Hawk HPS pads. For the track I have a set of Cobra slotted rotors with Hawk HP Blue pads. That way the pads and rotors are matched and wear at the same rate. Also I don't swap out the rear rotors or pads for the track since 80-85% of your stopping power comes from the front brakes. Drilled rotors look cool on the street but DO NOT use them on the track, they can't withstand the heat and will crack and fall apart which makes for a VERY bad day.
