For starters, this is an x

It doesn't even remotely resemble an h
Secondly, the one from lethal performance hangs WAAAY to low, but sounds killer
I'm going to go to an exhaust shop to modify the piping to have it raised a bit. I might Even open up the side of the h pipe to make a boss style exhaust...

Also, one of my o2 sensors managed to weld itself o the stock x pipe, so I had to go super hard on it, then I had to try to remove some of the welded part. None of the sensors were in bad shape, just the part the damaged screw part on the rear passenger side o2 sensor
Also, wd40 is going to be your best friend for this.
Also, I recommend a rather tip that can bend a little ( Idk the exact name, but it will help you immensely when you install your new pipe
It sounds un-godly loud and sexy.

It's an X. People say hybrid but if you remove the mufflers they sound like a NASCAR. Not really deep. I have a 14 foot lift to verify. Everyone's argument is invalid

The raspiness in the interior is super loud compared to the deepness

Rattling? Thats the mufflers themselves. Every single flowmaster has a dumb rattling sound. Thats why even tho it sounds awesome i dont get them cuz that rattle can sound is nasty

For starters, I know for a fact that the rattling is a pip banging against something, it's clearly a metal banging against metal.

And sure thing, I'll try to get some vids later today, but I'm not 100% sure cuz I'm super busy today

Plus I think mine was messed up a little bit, because one of the pipes was bent at the tip, and I couldn't fit a pipe into it. I had to unbend it.

Just a heads up
As a general rule of thumb, the h pipe sounds better with a chambered muffler, whereas the x pipe sounds better with a straight through muffler

As alrefire will say, it loses what little torque we have in the 1-2,000 rpm range. That low hollow muscle sound is so worth it. Gears will fix it.

that is soooo true. it was definitely worth it though. and I can upload as many videos as i want, it will NOT capture the amazing deep throaty sound
it did capture the two hippos having sex. hopefully i will fix that sometime this week or next week ;P
