3" H-Pipe

I'm looking for a H-Pipe for a 3" catback exhaust.
Where can I order them online?

Thats not an H, but not sure why OP would want an H, doesn't scavenge, just balances.

I like the sound better and my car felt stronger with the H. When I talked to a guy at Heartthrob exhaust, he said they dynoed both and the H made more HP and why they went with the H on their catback.

Just for sound. I like the sound of a classic H-Pipe more.

+1 on the sound.
Not shure but I think the H-Pipe is slightly better in lower tq and the X-Pipe shows better peak HP.





Still looking for a 3" H-Pipe

found one from Jegs:http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS+Performan...30652/10002/-1

and there's also one from Flowmaster:http://www.jegs.com/i/Flowmaster/389/15921/10002/-1


Both are universal and I am wondering if there is also a particular one for the Camaro.

I've not heard of a specific H hipe replacement but an exhaust could make something custom.
You may be able to get a 3" version of the H section from their catback. http://www.heartthrobexhaust.com/

Just talked to Mike from heartthrobexhaust. He told me that he has nothing available in 3" that fits a 2010+ Camaro

Had a crazy thought, what if you put 2 H-Pipes on. One in the stock location and another right before the pipe splits after the rear axle. Would anything even happen?

I don't think you need to worry about a 3" h-pipe. It is only there to keep the flow pressures equalized. I think my 3" system has maybe a 2" h-pipe? In any event, you aren't trying to flow exhaust to the other side, only keep the two sides equal in pressure.

If an X pipe is superior why does the ZR1 and the ZL1 have an H?

What would happen would be some reduction in the volume of sound from the system.

I would also expect to see a slight loss of low end TQ. Anyway, no reason to run 2 of them.

I've read "trusted" exhaust guys say the same things about both crossovers. To me, that means neither has a real advantage in the performance dept. They ALL agreed that both give the exhaust a little different tone. Since the H pipe tends to give you a little more "old skool" muscle sound and both the Camaro and Vette are considered old skool muscle, i'd expect that's the reason.

Yes I know I misspelled school.

Thats what I assumed as well. Mustangs, shelbys and roush's also had the H pipe I believe.
