X Pipe or H Pipe

Going today to get a mid pipe put on. I have no cats and a flowmaster 40 dual exhaust system. Which mid pipe should i go with? What sound do you all like best?

Xpipes provide more top end performance but I personally hate the way they sound. Their more raspy and high pitched. The hpipe will give a nice deep growl and will sound more like and 8 cylinder. I actually just ordered and hpipe and a magnaflow cat back system for mine and I can't wait to install it. Also check out YouTube for videos of each option and the different sounds

MANY different choices for "H" and for "X". Check out Flowmasters mid-pipe, it's a good one. Check out MAC's "H" pipe-"ProChamber" You can also get a very cheap Pacesetter "H" pipe that is perfectly fine, great piece & cheap. Good luck!

The only reason why i put an X Pipes, is because when i ordered my exhaust system on AM, the H Pipe was out of stock!!!

If sound is your main concern then using a X or H pipe is only part of it!.. What type and brand of muffler also determines how your car will sound!..

What kind of sound are you going for?... More race car kinda thing?.. Then I would say go with an X-pipe and muffler delete!.. If you want a more Muscle car sound then do H-pipe or Prochamber!..

I have the muffler delete on my 97 v6 and I love it I actually cut it off to put a thrush on it but it made sound like a Honda so I never put it on just straight pipe and a tip and I think it sounds great

Xpipe and SLP 1 for the win!!! I have that set up and everyone thinks its a v8!!!! Yea once you hit 3k it gets a little raspy but I don't mind it and you also get more top end HP with a Xpipe and it also has a better idol
