the x-pipe is on

well after a day of me and my dad trying to get it put on i finally broke down and took it to a muffler shop. anyways, i got it put on monday and all i've got to say is DAMN, my car sounds awesome now. it's just a little louder at idle and while cruising, but mash the loud pedal and it sounds MEAN as all get out. i had a friend of mine drive it down the road lastnight while i followed in his truck and it's a lot louder than i thought it would be. just thought i'd let everybody know how it went. anybody looking to get SLP products, i say go for it

Re: the x-pipe is on

thats sweet man, but ill tell ya somethin, I know in mine atleast, sure it was loud when I got my exhaust put on, but then about a month later, I think they actually wore in and they sounded deeper, and sounded really good, it was an actually noticeable difference about a month later, check to see if thats the same with you, unless their used.

Re: the x-pipe is on

I had an o/r x with my magnapacks and it was just too much, I could hardly leave a light nicely without getting some kind of unwanted attention. So now i have the stock H pipe back on, and Spintech side exit, Just right

Did you get the catted x pipe, or o/r?

The catted one is a great compromise, not as loud, and you are still about emissions legal, even though with mine I ended up have to put on mils eliminators cause I kept getting check engine lights when I kicked it. Just as a double precaution on my chip I had them turn off the rear 02 sensors too.

Re: the x-pipe is on

right now i've got SLP's loudmouth 2 catback and their catted X. i hope it does eventually get louder/deeper. i was hoping it would be substantially louder at idle, oh well. hopefully that will change after everything breaks in

gotta love teh spintechs. im ****ing starting yet another craze down here with people and spintechs. the muffler shop which did my exhaust 2 months ago, now is a spintech dealer, just cause he loved the big block muscle car sound they gave my then stock gt. i go by there every so often to keep him updated on when ill be doing the roush kit and needing his spot welds for the tips(even though theyre bolt-on, im getting them welded anyways, he says he can weld steel to cast aluminum easily)

01mineralgrey6, if i have extra funds this spring after the roush fiasco is done, its either going to deep dish bullitts, or mac o/r H with cats(more than likely). ill tell ya how it sounds. h-pipes usually make a deeper tone and are for a added low end torque, while x-pipes give it a higher raspy tone and are good for making higher end hp gains. thats the general though on them at least.

Smile Re: the x-pipe is on

where did you have trouble putting it on? I bet it was the the right header. I had to use so many different angle sockets, angle swivels or whatever theyre called to put them on. (cant think of the names cause im sick) but it was a ***** to put in on. I didnt even use a lift. My arms were jello after a couple hours though. I did save alot of weight from the stocker to pro-chamber. Cant wait to put the heavy stocker back on to pass smog. Thats good you got a catted one so you dont have to fiddle with it every 2 years. Btw dont panic when it starts smellin funny. Its just breakin in.

Re: the x-pipe is on

i actually got all the stock pieces off fine. what i had trouble with was taking the old exhaust manifold bolts out on the driver side. i don't know if all the other mid-pipes require you to replace the old bolts on the driver side but SLP does. i didn't have any way of getting them out so i that's why i had to take it to a muffler shop and they heated them and got them out that way.
