People seem decisively split on the subject. I prefer the sound of an H. I feel an x pipe needs to be matched with a good set of mufflers and should be catted. An off road x with straight through mufflers is too raspy, loud, and offensive to the ears. But the next guy may feel it is music to thier ears.

All depends on what's downstream. I still believe that a good "X" pipe scavenges the exhaust stream better than an "H", resulting in lower back pressures. Just makes sense that when one side is exhausting and forcing gases down the pipe, that it lowers the pressure on the other side. High speed = low pressure.
My 97 Cobra had a Bassani cat back with an "X", and to this day, it is the best sounding exhaust I've ever heard.

I paired an H to a set of Borla axle-backs and love the way it sounds. It's said that you get better flow with an X pipe but I doubt its enough of a difference to notice on a Daily Driver. You seem to get a deeper tone with the H whereas the X tends to sound slightly higher pitched, less like a muscle car and more like a racecar.

^ the only two cars I, genuinely, liked that have/had an X. Ironically, both owned by the same person at one point in time.
