BBK X or Pypes X

Well the mod bug has got me...I just installed my Pype Bomb axleback, jlt cai and a 93R bama tune. The next buy is going to be a catted X. Should I go with the bbk catted x or the pypes catted x? Prices on the Xs are the same. I'm not worried about fitment, because I'm going to have a shop do it. Does one sound better than the other? Is one more raspy? Any info would be awesome.

If you have Jack stands a Jack and a Breaker bar save your money and do it your self. It's not that hard. As far as which one I think the BBK is bigger. 2.75 compared to 2.5 for Pypes. I'd go with the BBK if price is the same

I agree go BBK the bigger pipe dia. and bigger hi flow cats will help the exhaust flow
Also were the pypes X pipe mounts the cats you will need o2 extentions so the pypes X will cost you a little more once you get the extra parts you will need

The bbk fits and sounds much better than the pypes IMO bit you will need the o2 extenders with the bbk also

OK I did not think you needed the 02 extenders for the BBK X that's good to know
I plan to have the BBK shorty's and catted X before the end of this summer

To those that responded, thank you. Looks like the BBK catted X gets the top vote.

You should get long tube headers with a BBK catted x pipe, you'll get way more bang for your buck.

Langer1099,

Great choice! The largest 2.75" diameter is nice for a little more power down the road. Not sure if you're thinking about supercharging, but it's not out of the picture with this mid-pipe!
