It comes from the factory with an H-pipe but almost all of the aftermarket cat backs convert it to an X-pipe.

OK, I must ask; what are the pros and cons when comparing the X pipe to the H pipe. Documented differences please, not personal opinions or preferences.

Thanks, Alfie

From what I've learned its x-pipe for flow and maybe a couple extra ponies and h-pipe for Better exhaust tone.

On these cars there is little to no difference on the dyno for reasons I can not explain. On other cars you tend to see the H-pipe produce better numbers down low and the X-pipe takes over up high. There is also some impact on sound with H-pipes being a little louder than the X-pipe.

Here is part of a tech article that was posted ...


"For any performance exhaust system, some type of crossover connecting the two sides of a dual exhaust system is important because it acts to balance the two banks of the engine. The common H-style crossover is good at balancing sound pulses between the two halves, but does little to promote scavenging because the exhaust gases tend to follow the path of least resistance, which is straight through each pipe rather than taking the 90-degree turn through the H-pipe into the other half of the system. In an X-pipe system, however, where the two sides of the system intersect, the gasses have no choice but to intermingle as they pass through the junction. This promotes improved scavenging effects by smoothing out uneven exhaust pulses from the engine’s firing order. It also helps quiet down the exhaust, resulting in a mellower, less raspy tone. According to Magnaflow, the faster acceleration of the gasses through an X-pipe causes them to flow in a linear fashion parallel to the walls of the tubing rather than tumbling. This “laminar” flowing gas is much quieter than tumbling gas, resulting in an exhaust tone up to 8 decibels quieter than a traditional H-pipe."

from what I've been told by people who know, there is no major difference between the x or h pipe for power increase or sound. I have heard both and I honestly could not tell the difference.
