catted X-pipes - Bassani vs. Magnaflow vs UPR

I am pricing out an X-pipes for a 2003 GT w/ hi-flow cats. I have seen the brand UPR selling for $300 and then Bassani and Magnalfow consistently at $450. Does anyone know the difference?

I have a Magnapack cat - back system on now, so would like to stay magnaflow, but would also like to save the $150 if I went with a cheaper x-pipe.

Any other recommendations?

Re: catted X-pipes - Bassani vs. Magnaflow vs UPR

honestly its personal preference, i dont know how these install but my SLP was a *****... i had to pull the driver side exhaust mani studs out... so you might want to check into it before you buy it... i love the way it sounds but i hate the feeling of reading the directions and seeing something i was NOT expecting...

Re: catted X-pipes - Bassani vs. Magnaflow vs UPR

bassani looks to have the highest build quality and fitment consistency than the others, thusly the higher price.

btw for me the hardest part of the midpipe swap was the innermost passenger side header bolt. Final solution was a bunch of 1/2" wobble-head extensions. oh and make sure you disconnect the battery or else you are in for quite a spark show once you stick a tool up there and make contact with the starter.

Re: catted X-pipes - Bassani vs. Magnaflow vs UPR

i have never heard any other mid pipe sound like the magnaflow tru-x. i have one that i took off my car, it's cat less and was replaced when i did header back. there is a mineral grey one around here with the catted one, sounds damn nice. we both have the magnapack cat back system on our cars.
