you can hear the X a little above 3-3.5K but the long tubes, high flow cats, and flow 40's really help pull the rasp out

Re: H pipes or X??

once you get the custom fab the h pipe do you still use your cats?or you run it straight/catless?coz i just bought pypes ceramic hi flow cat and considering the h pipe.any suggestion?i dont want to make it louder as it is, i just want the rumble sound and not to install the cats it every year just to pass emission.opinion?

Also, from what I hear, you can run divorced duals. Our motors are "even firing" engines so that means you don't "need" the pipes to connect i.e. X pipe, H pipe. You can just run on pipe on each side straight back. I don't know how it would effect the sound but one pro would be that you could tuck you pipes up higher than if you had a H or X pipe. Just a thought, anyway.

do u only come into the v6 section to give bad comments ?
Alright lol XD getting a divorced dual for the v6 is a ****ty idea and the x pipe isn't much better. So the h pipe equalizes the air flow to both sides giving a better sound :p there and why would u want a x pipe to make something that's already raspy more raspy.

Either way divourced duals are a bad idea. The reason it sounds off I cuase the engine isn't balanced. The h pipe balances the exhaust of the v6. I know that's why I put a h pipe on my v6 when I had one. :p
