Question about an Xpipe

Ever since I had my lt headers and high flow cats and hpipe put on I have had too much rasp, I was at first going to go with new resonators and all of that, but I took my car too a guy that does custom exhaust where I live, and he normally knows what he is talking about and does good work, he was talking about wanting to make me an xpipe to switch out for the hpipe, and possibly make me a "J" pipe to go onto the Xpipe. He tried to explain to me what a Jpipe was, but he had only ever made one before, and it went on a 2014 Camaro.
My question is, do you all know what a Jpipe does when it is attached to your Xpipe, and will it help out on the sound at all?

Dont know what a J pipe is but X or H your sound will suck since you removed the factory CATS and Resonators. Just get some decent resonators installed or get rid of the LT headers.

Depending on the cost, I say go for it. Some have tried J-pipe's towards the mufflers, never heard anything good happening though. But you could definitely find out how good his idea works and let us all know. :-p

Also, high flow cats really don't tame the sound much on our cars, from what I've seen BBK LT's, O/R X, 5.0 resonators, and Trident mufflers sounded good. Resonators will do more good than the high flows as far as sound is concerned.

Your mid pipe is going to change the sound a little bit, but not as drastically as it did when you installed the LTs and highflow cats. Adding resonators/j-pipe is only going to do so much. IMO, LTs and O/R pipes belong on v8s because they make the v6s sound like rice crap.

I've been dying for someone to try this, take one for the team.

Headers > single 3" pipe > dual exit at the rear. It will flow plenty enough, and the single pipe may break up the rasp. I have absolutely no idea, but it sounds neat.

LOL...like a V6 M3? It will change the sound for sure...just not sure how well.

Ok, after looking it up all a J pipe is is a pipe that dumps out from before the muffler....it sounds like BS to me...Id just go with a BOSS 302 H pipe and side exits...

A J-pipe is a resonator tube used to eliminate drone. Believe some are made to allow changing of the length to allow fine tuning.

Does it work for rasp?

Well the problem is, the stock cats will no longer fit because of the lt headers, and I will be putting resonators back on, so I am stuck with the highflows unless I want to pay 200+ for aftermarkets, he has quoted me at $160 for all the work he is talking about, which is very reasonable. He did my exhaust when I had an 04 GT and it was flawless, so its not like he one of the shady ones. But back to the Jpipe thing, I showed him how the boss 302 pipe looked, and we may try somthing like that maybe but as an Xpipe.
I just wanted your thoughts on the matter, and I figured Volt would have some sort of Idea XD, but the guy even said he has no idea if it will work or not, but it might be worth a try, and he wanted me to research on it a bit for my car to see, but I haven't found anything so far.

Oh wow, ok. So its simmilar to the tubes that pop out from the intake correct? Its closed off and just a space for sound to travel to dissipate and or slow down and remove or lessen high rasp.

That's what I have got out of it so far, it may not cure it completely but it may knock off just enough of the bite to were its far more tolerable.

We changed out my Hpipe for an Xpipe, necked down the outlet of the highflow cats from 3" down to 2 1/4, and installed my resonators back on and we didn't even need the Jpipe it sounded MUCH better after we did that, it brought back that sound I had lost from installing the lt headers and the highflow cats, and made it deeper, like It should have been from the start.

and negated all the hp gains you got from them... 2 1/4 is tiny, and those stock resonators arent doing you any favors. If it sounds good though, more power to you, its not easy to do on these motors.

It still has more power than it did before on the top end, I can definitely tell, I may not have quiet as much as I would have had, but I would rather sacrifice some power to be able to drive it without shame lol, then have more power and hate the sound of it!

Alright, I need to find the time to buy me a dash cam, because it sounds better driving than it does just reving it up.

Get a friend to film a drive by or something. The cars always do sound better under load than just free revving.

Well, normally I would agree, but apparently it worked out, and it sounds much better now! But like I said he only charged me 160 for everything, xpipe and all the work. I can't argue with that price, as you cant even buy an xpipe for that from a major retailer.
