Re: x pipe or h pipe

The difference is the way the pipe is made, one is the shape of an x and the other an h....they have different sounds, the h is a low rumble and the x is more a raspy growl.....they make the same amount of power so it basically comes down to the sound you want

Re: x pipe or h pipe

both are designed to balance out both sides of the motor and create a scavaging effect. The main diff. is that the H-pipe can't do it's job above 3,000RPMs. where the x-pipe works at any RPM.

I'm guessing 95blackgt doesn't care anymore.

ProChamber is better than both anyway, so this thread is irrelevant.
