Exhaust Question

Just called a local shop who said they could delete my resonator by welding in straight pipes in its place. How would this sound in comparison to an H-Pipe? I have limited exhaust knowledge, and wanted some feedback. Said they'd charge around $75 for the pipes and labor.

Thanks!

Are you leaving the stock mufflers in place? If so I'm pretty confident you will get quite a bit of rasp.

I'm gonna throw out a suggestion, feel free to ignore it but, I understand you want to save a bit since the x and H pipes are way over priced. Get a few quotes to fabricate an X or H pipe from an independent muffler shop and see what they say. Being independent they want repeat business and most have more skill than the chains and can be more flexible on price.


Yes it's fast, no you can't drive it.

Yes, leaving stock mufflers in place and would like just a touch more volume. Appreciate the feedback - I'll call around to some custom shops for estimates on h-pipes. You're correct in them being overpriced, which is why I'm seeking a more reasonable solution!

Again, I appreciate the feedback.

I don't think it would add too much rasp honestly. Try finding some videos on youtube, I'm sure somebody has done it

I found one clip, which I thought sounded OK. But the guy who did it said it wasn't a good tone, advising against it.

I like the X pipe but it's raspier than the H pipe. But I think there's a performance gain with the X. H pipe is old tech.

Wrong. X pipe gives you more power on the high end. H pipe gives you more low end torque so there is a huge difference depending on how you want your ride set up. There is no right or wrong, just a personal preference.

Exhaust Question

Nate you a correct. He is repeating what the manufactures Claim, and or probably google.
Your not going to notice a power difference, from a X to H Especially not a "huge difference"


Dam so that's why that guy keeps beating me of the line, Bc he has a H pipe and I have a X. Tire and suspension adjustments and it's been a dam mid pipe the whole time.


🍼and 🌽 fed coyote.

I'm fine with the current power, dudes! Looking for a deeper tone - think it'll be an H for me.

I picked up CJ Pony parts h pipe for about 110 bucks. I installed it with outlaws though, but it will definitely make your car alittle louder. Similar to what a stock 11-14 would sound like.

What's the durability like on the aluminized steel? I was only considering stainless... Should I reconsider? CJ is listing aluminum for $90 this week.

Well if you live in the north, I think it could rust. You can call and ask, but I'm in FL, so I don't have that problem lol
