difference between H pipe and X pipe?

Is there a sound or performance variation?

Nahhh...no controversy..its purddy simple and I think anyone will agree..
H-pipe - has a deeper tone.to some a more preferable (including myself)
X-pipe - has a raspy as sound,but offers a bit more hp gains..

If you go from a stock H pipe to a X pipe you will lose HP. H pipes give better horsepower but X pipes sound wayyyyyyy deeper. So sound X, HP -H

I have never heard that. Always heard that maybe lose a little low end power but make way more in the high end, and that's due to losing a little back pressure. However the xpipe offers higher flow rates. While this is still a controversial topic, I'm pretty sure What I said has been proven by now.

Switching from a stock H to a X will lose HP. It's been dyno proven.

Well I am on the v6 forum lol. Maybe for you guys it does, but on our 11+ GT's it adds a not insignificant amount... This isn't the first time I've found myself on another forum section giving bad info lol. Maybe I should stick to my area haha

You've got it completely backwards. H-pipe is deeper sound with low-end torque gains and x-pipe is raspier rev sound with top-end horsepower gains

It don't matter what motor your running!.. The flow characteristics of exhaust are pretty universal!..

Both the H and X Pipes will give you about the same HP gains!.. It's just one is a little more down lower in the RPM range than the other!.. Now in your High HP applications the X Pipe will show a bit more gains but not by much!..

Again it's based on opinion. Ive heard 2 of the exact same cars (07 4.0 v6s) and the X pipe one sounded deeper than the H pipe.

When it comes down to it, the exhaust note is based on opinion.

The only opinion available is whether you like the sound or not. You can't be of the "opinion" that one is deeper than the other. It either has a deeper note or it doesn't.

Well that's the thing. People say the H is deeper but I think the X is deeper. It's opinion.

+11 the H pipe will give you a deeper tone!.. A buddy of mine has the exact same exhaust setup as me, minus the fact that his is an O/R H-pipe vs my O/R X-pipe!.. We both have CherryBomb Vortex Cat Backs with stock exhaust manifolds!.. His does have a slightly deeper tone but not by much!..

As far as which one sounds better!.. It just depends on the individual!..

When I hear them in person I honestly can't tell the difference but whenever I look at clips online I think the H always seems to sound deeper.

Personally I have an X and I like it so whatever it's all personal opinion lol.
