O/R H Pipe vs. O/R X Pipe

What are the differences between the two pipes? Which one is louder? Which has more of a performance gain? Cost difference? Etc! Give me all your input. What do you guys recommend? I think I want to mate one of these pipes with a SLP Loudmouth axleback.

Same cost, better power from xpipe, go with x, offroad h doesn't sound as good IMO

I have a offroad h with American thunder axle back and everyone says it sounds like a old school which is what I wanted. Nice deep rumble at idle. Everyone told me x pipe is more raspy. And if you pair it with SLP it's going to be REALLY loud lol and an x pipe will net more gains because the air is being forced out. So basically h=deeper idle, not as much hp gain, x=more hp gain, raspy tone.

Thank you black95D. Now this Is my other question. Will I be able to keep it quiet if I want to? Will I be able to have a conversation in the cab? I want an exhaust setup that will be really loud if I want it to be, but I can keep it quiet if I want as well. Do you suspect that there would be a lot of drone with that setup?

No cats with loud mouths= obnoxiously loud... I'd get something a little tamer like borla.

Or do like i just did this and love it, or x with spintech pro street catback.. Its a beast but not too bad at nirmal driving. But when you romp on it it's snarls!!

Anytime man! SLP is never quiet lol I'd suggest looking at borla! SLP loudmouths are...well...loud lol maybe look into borla, roush. SLP Is a straight through exhaust which is why it's so loud look into a chamber muffler that's aggressive. My suggestion is, hop on YouTube and search search search. You'll find somethin you like on there! An exhaust can be a expensive investment!!! Take your time, and do it right the first time!

Would a SLP Loudmouth axleback alone do what I want? REALLY loud if I want, but quiet if I need it to be? Is adding an O/R X just crazy? Or Would I be quieter driving a jumbo jet? I would like to spend as little money as possible, but I'm also striving to get something I love! I really like downshifting, drifting, then the how exhaust grumbles and cracks. Do SLP's do that? I like youtube, but how close of a match am I getting tto actually hearing it in person?

For me the slp loudmouths are perfect. Youtube it. It would be too obnoxious with an off road pipe.

U want power and noise when u want it? Off road mid pipe and axle backs. People think I'm stock if I'm nice, and they fear me if I rev it, it's exactly what u want

If you are looking for one or the other..don't even concern yourself with which one makes the most power. Everything I have read has the power difference very minimal. It all boils down to how you want your car to sound. Youtube is your friend.

I have to say YouTube can be helpful but it doesn't always do justice.

If you like crackle and power, then you should get an off road x pipe. Just that with stock mufflers should sound pretty good.

I have to agree. You tube is good for a fraction of what things really sound like. And it's usually just reving in neutral... Or in a garage.. Ifreakin love that one, bunch of retards.

Comes down to sound really. H pipe is deeper and sounds better IMO. X pipes sound more raspy and tinny.

Re: O/R H Pipe vs. O/R X Pipe

The HP difference is negligible. Pick the sound you're going for. I have an x. Will eventually be getting borlas or stainless works exhaust. For now I have the x cuz it's a cheap hp mod. Sounds pretty good with stock exhaust

Re: O/R H Pipe vs. O/R X Pipe

If you need to keep the cats, and want the H-pipe deeper sounds, is there any benefit to an aftermarket H-pipe like the JBA? Will it offer anything over stock (tone/volume/perofrmance)?

I have Roush axelbacks - and would like something that "bolts up" if possible and it's worthwhile.

Re: O/R H Pipe vs. O/R X Pipe

I just ordered the jba long tube headers and the off road h pipe to go with it and hopefully this weekend i can get them on, i will let u guys know how it sounds, but that magnaflow o/r/x pipe should warn people that it makes your car sound like a whiny biiootcchh BEFORE YOU BUY IT...! It does produce nice hp but I will take muscle car rumble over a few horses any day!!

Soo, did you really hear a difference in the Sound or is it just more fun to Throw around the Word RASPY and sound soo much more like all the other professionals hear that Majored in the term "Raspy"? Did I mention "Raspy"? I meant to say Raspy, cause that is a new a good word Raspy, I don't want to say Raspy too much cause the Raspy people might get upset. You know that word "Raspy" is a new word. Almost like a fruit named "Raspy". If it seemed like I said "Raspy" too much, it's cause I get tired of hearing Raspy, all the time like it's new Mech, Technology. Ask a couple of your neighbors if they know what Raspy is. I have a X pipe, and my neighbors like how it sounds, I have had no one say it sounds "Raspy", WTF?
