Debating on switching to resonated x pipe

I am debating on switching to resonated x pipe or stay with the h pipe. I currently have long tubes and high flow cats with muffler delete but I am getting annoyed with the rasp above 2k. Will a resonated x pipe reduce the rasp? Do I need to take out the resonator when I take the h pipe off. thanks

I went to the Magnaflow. It helped a bunch!

A good muffler is your best bet. Stainless Works Retro or Corsa just to name a couple...

The Magnaflow Resonated X is a great way of controlling rasp. (Assuming LS3 with H pipe comment) You don't have to remove the resonators, however the Resonated X pipe will quiet down the exhaust system. I would try it with them in place, and remove later if needed.

Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or pricing.

Best regards,

Tyler

Ive got long tubes no cats rez magnaflow xpipe and no mufflers and really like the way it sounds, but has some drone.. had no xpipe b4 and like you said the rasp was nasty sounding.. If you end up doing a xpipe it will be quiet at first till you brake her in

I also have the Pypes muffler delete with resonator tips. So no cats on LTs with the magnaflow x pipe and pypes tips sounds really good.
