MAC Longtube Headers

I have a 2005 v6 mustang with a airaid cai a Sr performance throttle body spacer dual exhaust with a custom x pipe and pype bomb muffler delete axle back. I just ordered mac chrome longtube headers and was wondering if I should keep the x pipe or go to a h pipe, I don't want it to be raspy which I'm afraid it will be with my x pipe. Thanks in advance

Only thing is that reduces the volume of the exhaust I want it to be as loud as possiblewhile sounding good

Well if you want loud go with an x pipe. If you want loud while sounding good still I'd go with a prochamber. It cleaned up the sound a lot when I was running muffler deletes.

The LT headers will definitely give your exhaust a higher pitch and slightly more volume. I would go with the MAC Pro-Chamber, as others have mentions. I really don't think you'll be upset with the volume because the car will definitely still scream! Plus, it will have a deeper rumble.

Let us know what you end up going with!

Well decided to stick with the x pipe and see how it sounded before I modified it and honestly I like it here's a vid. Sounds much better and much louder in person

Stuck with the x pipe to see what it sounded like before I changed it and honestly sounds amazing little to no rasp. Sounds much better in person as well as being much louder
