I looked at the BBK catted x but turned it down when I saw it was aluminized and not stainless. I've got my eye on the JBA catted x.
I asked Borla and the S-Types for our 'stangs are specifically tuned for the 3v. Am I gullible, maybe. Am I very particular? Yes. I did the math and I think if I sold my S-Type axle-backs and bought a new cat-back it'd be cheaper (for my application) + new shiny hardware is always nice.
Trumpeting apparently only happens with O/R pipes and shorty headers. Any cats/resonators will muffle it. Basically it only happens for a split second while shifting gears (the worst on autos). Going from a loud bwaaa to a mellow rumble. Sounds like a loud trumpet/fart.
Yeah.. I really wanted a good H pipe too but the market seems to be breaking away from that. X pipe is the new king I guess.
The aluminized pipes do kind of suck, I'm a little worried about rust. I'm guessing that was your concern as well? I really wanted a cheap "merged" pipe and the BBK delivered. I'm not a big fan of the "stamped" x pipes.
Oh yeah my H does that during certain rpm shifts. Sometimes it sounds cool and mean, sometimes it just sounds like a big fart depending on where my rpms are when I shift.
I think I have a leak on my pypes H by the way.. I've been "fixing" it for a year now haha
