Custom Exhaust/Choosing Midpipe For Tune

I had the American Thunder catback put on my car using stock midpipe just converting the Y to dual. I had it cut right after the cats and had the dual cat back put on. This is what it turned out to, both sides never connect or come in contact. I have an O/R X just i have smog coming up and tried to see if i got it to work this way if and might as well throw on the X after smog. I'm ordering a new tune but I don't know what to put down for midpipe whether H or X. I was thinking H.

the X-pipe might make it sound raspy, it would be better just to cut the cats off and keep what's already on.

crackle, is that the slight popping noise you get when you let off the gas?
Even my Y-pipe makes that.
I didn't notice it until I rolled my window down once and floored for it a few seconds. When I let off you could hear some little pops from the exhaust.

Yeah that! I had just a flowmaster muffler on my stock Y and it'd crackle when I let off the gas but with the catback it slightly only does it. I love that popping

I'm a guessing a restrictive exhaust holds stops it from popping.
So a free flowing exhaust, or just a less restrictive exhaust will have more crackling/popping.
I like a little popping in my exhaust, don't want too much or it'll start to sound like a 2 stroke mini-bike...

I've noticed that smaller engine's(like 4 cylinders) actually have louder exhaust pops, my friends hyundai accent is still slow but the exhaust pops alot with the obx racing muffler and resonator delete(his cold air intake also made it pop more)

No... I would never recommend an import. I like american muscle way to much.
I'm just saying that I've seen imports with popping exhaust. There's two that drive down my road constantly.

My exhaust is starting to pop a bit more I think just because it's breaking in.
