X-Pipe or stay with the Y-Pipe?

So today I went into Midas to get my exhaust checked on since there was a rattling noise coming from it. Turned out one of the things that the exhaust bolted onto broke off (was a $10 fix). While there I asked for an estimate on an X-Pipe for my car and he said $300 for one. Just wondering if it'd be worth it on a V-6? And would it just make my car sound even better or give it a performance boost (which I doubt btw).
Currently waiting for my bbk cai to come in the mail to and I wanna tune sometime this month or the next but if I go with the X-pipe then the tune will have to wait a little longer. So what do y'all think?

If you get the x pipe you're going to need the complete setup minus the headers

Go with the X. If it were me, I'd throw on some hi-flow cats while I'm at it too.

Re: X-Pipe or stay with the Y-Pipe?

You won't really gain much in performance, maybe 1-3hp, idk if it'll even see a gain at the rear wheels. Definitely nothing you'd feel.

As for sound.. I'm not sure; I haven't had the pleasure of hearing many aftermarket exhaust vs. stock exhaust or anything on V6s. I'd suggest using YouTube.
