What x pipe to buy?!

I'm looking to buy an xpipe but I don't want to cut or weld anything. What xpipe are you guys running?

I agree, I wouldn't want to cut into my system either. Here is a link to American Muscle's x pipe selection...

American Muscle

Try doing a search for exhaust in the 2010-2014 forum. There should be tons of info on exhaust and you'll most likely find some video of x-pipe setups that could help you make your decision.

I heard that jba had fitment problems and people had to weld. I like the magnaflow, bassani and jba. I want o/r x but I want to be able to throw my cats on when I need inspection lol

We are fortunate in Indiana. Currently, we don't have inspections. This is what I would want to do.

No people are crazy. Also saw people who didn't realize the resonator pipes are adjustable and can be moved and cut theirs. Mine fit perfect. What I noticed, was if you put it on upside down it fits funny, but it also sits like 7 inches off the ground if you do that.

My only install issue was getting that one bolt off the cat.

I also have no inspections so I will run mine year round

Agreed with Napoleon, I'm running the same one... Technically I'm running the BBR xpipe, but BBR UPR, and lethal all have exact same pipe, just sold by different companies

Jba might be your next best bet in price as they are not one piece but allow you to use the cats or remove them.

I agree with nosympathy. The jba x is a 3 piece so that you can delete cats later on if you want. Make sure you get the 3" to 2.75" as your stock mids are 2.75. Fitment issues would be like no sympathy said about adjusting your mid pipes so you do not have to cut.

Heartthrob makes them but you may just want to get a good exhaust shop to make you 3" mids. If you are planning in lowering the car do the custom mids afterwards so not to have any over axle pipe knocking issues

Do you think 3 inch would make that much of a difference?

Not if your keeping cats in. It also really depends on all other mods anyways. Stock tune with cats then the 3" over axles wont matter. It may slightly deepen the exhaust note but only slightly after xpipe and mufflers and still have stock cats. However removing the resonators will make it slightly louder. I would recommend the xpipe and mufflers first then if you want just a little more volume get rid of the resonators.

Wow. You weren't kidding about wanting it loud. Soooo yea go 3" all the way. It may get raspy with the off road x pipe loudmouth combo. If it's too raspy for your tatse then get some dynomax 3" race bullets and put them in place of where the resonators used to be. It will only slightly tone down the volume but will help with unwanted rasp. Some people like alot of rasp though so your choice of course. Atleast you can turn down some rasp with the race bullets afterwards if you want. Make sure you get a tune with cats and a tune without cats since you will switch once a year.

when you put the tune on, feels like a whole new car, when you then remove the cats, you get the same feeling again.

I mostly run it on the weekends. It eats gas like a kid eats candy. Also it tends to be kinda bouncy when driving as sometimes when the RPM gets close to 1K it tries to kick the cam idle in and ends up driving weird.

Also during the week I leave for work at 6:30A.M. and since it idles so loud, people would kill me.

I do enjoy it, just not for driving 24/7. Like I have it on now, because I am going out with friends later and it is always cool to turn some heads haha.

haha my neighbors don't exactly like us, and we are looking to move. House is up for sale and everything. To be fair though, they have some parties at times that sound like I have a boombox blasting music in my room, up till 2-3 A.m. Thankfully they haven't done that since I started having to get up at 6a.m. everyday.

I will do a full rev tomorrow, as I know everyone will be probably out doing something! lol.
