X-pipes

I was wondering if there were any good xpipes that I can get for my V6 that I can just reuse my stock catalytic converters for. Getting catted xpipes is so expensive and I dont want to put on an off-road xpipe simply for emission purposes.

Would it be signitficantly better to just get the off road bbk xpipe and then just switch it out when I get emissions and service like once a year?

I'm pretty sure u would have to reinstall the headers with the stock h pipe if u wanted to do that. The bbk xpipe & the stock h pipe are not interchangeable.

Should've done it separate to see the difference. But I would've probably done the same thing lol.

Get a lethal performance offroad mid pipe! I would personally recommend the H-Pipe because it makes a deeper sound!

Don't bother then. The aftermarket x pipe has high flow cats, freeing up airflow. Using the stock will still congest your engines airflow.

H pipe also smaller performance gains. A few hp, nothing huge, but at the same price, why not get the slightly more performance one?

The lethal performance H pipe doesn't hook up to aftermarket long tube headers for 11 plus v6 models.

A couple months? That's a long wait. Had mine since June of last year man. But I went with Catted even tho it's expensive and the gains are 2-5HP different then with off road xpipe n I've seen dyno runs to prove it.

If I had emission issues I would get the catted high flowing x pipe but I don't have yearly emission testing.
