Ok hpipe has a deeper rumble where as the x pipe has a more raspy sound and it's metal piping so it don't really matter

Well the x pipe I have on there now used to be an o/r x but I had to get high flow cats welded on because of the trouble I was getting into with the cops lol. So I guess the question I should've asked is which is quiter and x or h. However I still want it to be a louder sound.

The h pipes in my opinion give exhaust a flatter exhaust note if u want it quiter other than catted x I would go with the Mac pro chamber mid pipe gives it a more suttle medium tone than really raspy or flat

Yeah I just think the slp lm1 will be to raspy with the x but I hope the o/r h I plan on getting will make my exhaust a lot louder.

With this additive, my exhaust is altered significantly... Only operate in an area with sufficient airflow... Fumes are toxic.

Boosted... With sound tube securely fastened.

Careful of the backfires... Makes a mess on the garage wall.

Are you guys sure the o/r H is quieter than an o/r X? I think it's just deeper and a little different sounding more than quieter.

When I put the o/r H on my car with muffler delete, it was so loud, it was embarrassing, Lol. I have to wait until I can buy a new cat back setup.

No, it's a Flowmaster muffler delete. It's just pipes and tips. So, when I put on the o/r H, it's basically straight pipes. Louder than a mofo!

I personally like the H sound better. But I think the X is more popular. Maybe because you'll get a little more power out of it compared to the H. Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong either way. They both sound good and make the car breathe better. If I was you, I'd do like I did, chose based on sound preference. Get your YouTube on and listen to a bunch of those videos.

+1 I love h pipes. And with slp I think h would be the best.

I think I seen your video...it was dusk or close to nighttime? It sounded great! I know you know...those videos help when your trying to find what you like, but they really don't do them justice. I bet yours was loud.

I just put a o/r x on my 03 gt and it is a higher pitch than the H but I don't know if it is any louder just a higher pitch. I just like how it turns the heads when you get on it. If you just drive normal it is not that loud so all is good with the cops. Lol
