Agreed... x-pipes are way to raspy on the sixers... H-pipe will give you that "v8" growl. An O/R h-pipe will be even better if you have a good cat-back.

Something about the air flow, the H is more aerodynamic causing more horsies and deeper tone compared to the slightly more high pitched sound of the x. It really depends on the muffler you.get as well

Re: Hpipe or xpipe

10s don't belong on v6's not the sound you want....
H pipe or no mid pipe at all works good
X pipe isn't bad after you've done some engine work.

"sounds better" is very subjective. One person may prefer the sound produced by an H pipe, while another (like myself) prefers the sound produced by an X pipe.

It's a personal decision that no one can make for you. Myself, I LOVE the sound of my car with the catted X and I wouldn't swap it for anything.

Watch 500 videos on youtube with the sound cranked up and decide for yourself exactly what you want to hear every time you start your car.

Watch this one, and decide for yourself if it's thumbs up or thumbs down... simple as that.

No offense but it sounds like popcorn being popped, too high pitched to be that mustang growl buuuut it could be different in person, 80% of the time it sounds better when your there.

I'm not 100% on this but a true dual exhaust can give up to 40hp for, but costs a good grand to assemble, either x or H.

Re: Hpipe or xpipe

O_o you need new speakers..... Maybe it's the fact I have bigger ones attached to my computer but it doesn't sound high pitched in that idle and very small rev video.........

True duals is any mid pipe aside from a y...
There are divorced setups or h & x pipe setups, all are considered true dual

And hell no it won't give you 40hp....

Yes, but with 2 cats and 2 mufflers, preferably 2.5in pipes then 3-3.5 out of the muffler

Going from a single 2.25 inch exhaust to a custom 2.5-3in pipe with after market headers,cats,and mufflers yesssss you can get 40hp. My dad wouldn't lie, he's been a mustang man from birth

Re: Hpipe or xpipe

We're talking a stock V6 here.... Not a supped up V8 with a full exhaust you'll be lucky to see over 10ish on the wheels

I guess you could add a mental 30 more hp to that from the sound lmfao

By leaving the factory headers and cats and opening up the rest you get a whopping 3-4rwhp

On V8's H's add low end power and X's add high end. As for how much they add depends on your mods. You have a bunch of mods with stock exhaust, then swap it for some good aftermarket stuff you'll gain some serious power. If you add it to
A car with CAI you'll be lucky to get 5-10hp

Re: Hpipe or xpipe

I will back up that you won't get much out of bolt-ons on the v6... I'v put just about every performance bolt-on that I could find on my 98 v6, and a tune to tie it all together, and I'm betting I haven't gained more than 20-30 HP total, even with the tune...

Car does sound amazing with the O/R h-pipe, flowmaster super 44s, and the CAI... but it's all bark and no bite to this point though... It's not a v8, but I still love it!
