Hey guys I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with a problem I may/may not have....I bought an awesome Borla Side Exit Cobra R style cat-back exhaust kit a good while back for my 01 Convertible, and it's served me great, I can't say enough about how awesome it looks/sounds. Anyhow, lately I've been hearing really good things about X-Pipes (I'm a little worried they may be obnoxiously loud though). I'm considering purchasing one, but everyone seems to be feeding me BS about exactly what it will do. "20+ HP" "15 min. install", I'm not naive enough to believe in any of that crap. Will it just bolt right up, and will I be able to keep my exhaust system, which is designed to work with the V6? One more thing, I know you run into this problem with LT headers....Will my car's convertible status preclude it from using an X-Pipe? Just a few things I wanted to be sure of before dropping the $160+ on the thing. Any advice yall could give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

RE:Car Info

The issue in point isn't the HP gains my friend. For the record the car is pretty well modified and casually runs a 14.43. What I want to get out of this is sound, not necessarily performance; I feel I've already got that. I need to know if it is feasible on this car, that’s all. 1)Will my precious exhaust kit have to go, and 2) How involved will the install be, given that the car is a convertible. Thanks!

Thanks...

Thanks a lot Ken, I really appreciate it. That's what I needed to know. It was a bolt-on kit I installed on my car, using an adapter for the dual side exits. So is there anything else you would recommend doing that may help me audibly? I'm hesitant to drop the stock exhaust manifold in favor of MAC headers, as I doubt it's necessary without a blower, but just out of curiosty, have you heard these on a 6? Aside from Headers and X/H-pipes, theres not much else I'm thinking I can do to change my note. Any suggestions would be most welcome! Thanks again!
