Default H / X Pipe or True Duals?

Is it all the same? Which one is better for my 99 WS6 Formula? How much $ am I looking at ? Where can I get it done in Dallas, TX? Please hook me up. Lost all my connections.

Thanks.

This is the wrong questions to ask in here friend! No matter which is better, no one will agree on it. If someone says an X pipe is better, then someone will jump down your throat and say that's wrong and vice versa.

I've used both and I find that an X Pipe works the best form my cars. It gives me a little more low end torque.

But I assure you someone will chime in and call me a liar or say that I'm wrong and say that the H Pipe is better.

you need to do a little research, trust me, with a car like this its worht it..

search around the site, and don't let the opinions of a couple people sway you, unless you just like you decisions made for you. There is a lot of information on this site...

I want to use an H when I get duals, why sacrifice sound for that tiny extra flow, if it makes a difference at all. If you do some research, you'll see that almost everyone here, who has duals, uses an X, so this site is a little biased toward them.

good luck with what ever you choose
