I say an o/r h-pipe and longtubes with a set of flow 40's on the would sound badass!

Long tubes are better since the right setup will give a great sound and increase in HP. I don't know if there is much of a difference between H- or X-pipes other then it usually gives a different tone.

Re: need some ideas

Cast another vote in the "H-pipes sound better on the 5.0" column! I think long-tubes sound especially awesome, though a bit more challenging to work around.
'94 GT aode. Cobra intake, AFRs, 1.7s, Mac/flowmaster exhaust, Hughes 2500 stall, 3.73s, Eibach, bilstein, blah blah. Smelly, fun and loud!
