When your going with an Road Mid Pipe, brand doesn't mean anything!.. I've got a O/R X-pipe from Pypes and it's been on there for just over 4 years, fits perfectly and zero problems!.. Put it this way, it's really just a tube!.. So it don't mater what name is on it, it will perform and sound the same!..

Now I know some one will probably come on here and say, "that's not true!.. This brand here is better because______!...."

They do have good fitment!.. But they are over priced a bit!.. When I got my X-pipe I only paid about $100 for it!.. I think the next cheapest one was SLP and they wanted almost $200 for theirs!.. But that was also 4 years ago!..

For just a piece of pipe no it's not!.. All your doing in this case is paying for a name!.. An O/R X-pipe is an O/R X-pipe!.. There is no difference in them!..

Actually BBK and bassani sound the same but sound different than upr... They're all very similar but different in ways...
1) I've heard BBK isn't a true x pipe because it doesn't actually crossover like upr.. Idk if that's true tho.
2) BBK and bassani have a chamber like piece in the "crossover" which makes it sound different. Look up vids on YouTube it has a really hollow sound to it versus a little more rasp on the upr.
3) I wouldn't recommend BBK cause I used to have a BBK x pipe and the way they're built they hang down really low. I'm not the only one either.. Before my car was lowered I was scraping with that thing. So I got a upr 2 years ago it's awesome

My bassani x pipe fit flawlessly. Only thing I'd recommend is to zip tie the wires that hang down so they won't get too hot and melt.

Yea I had to Use 4 washers on each of the passenger manifold bolts because they ran out of thread to close the gap between the manifold and the x pipe that was about it no big deal I did have to cut a socket in half for clearance as well but other than that it wasn't to bad
