Not much. Mayb a couple hp but mostly you will just add a raspy tone to the exhaust note. Save ur cash and just do an axelback.

Have you looked into a performance cat setup?.. I know you said you didn't want to spend much but don't want to axe the cats!.. Other wise your gains will be minimum!..

Factory cats suck a$$ big time!..

Performance cats are supposed to do as well as the factory ones!.. And be alot less restrictive!.. So you should be able to pass emissions with no problem!.. As far as hp gains!.. I have heard that they are the next best thing to an actual o/r X-pipe!..

Agree with eturner! Buddy of mine lives in a area that does emissions testing and he has high flow cats and passes. They will also net a decent gain not as much as o/r x pipe would.

Painful in price but kooks full exhaust is real nice and will pass if you need it to. We do a lot of them and they last. Build it once ya know

I personally like a well built h pipe over most x pipes. Makes it amuch nicer install and sound

Ya I like the way the H-pipes sound but I decided to be different!.. Most everyone I know has an H-pipe and I decided to go with an X-pipe!.. Lol.
