it's all about sound, my friend. I'm sure you will be happy with your choice. H = deep muscle and X= exotic. As far as horsepower gain, about the same. Although, I know you will beat your head on the desk for about 2 weeks before you decide. LOL!:joy:
Hey J... good to see you back on the web! Thought you had fallen off the face of the earth. What are you gonna stick on your '88 notch? BTW, anybody know anything about the MetalTech stainless o/r h that Laurel Mountain sells for $119??? Sure seems cheap for a stainless pipe...
if it were my car..i would go with an h-pipe. they sound,great, and perform just as good. The only difference is, is that x-pipes perform better the higher in revs you get becauser the help equalize the exhaust pulses, if i remember correctly.
I vote for the Dr. Gas X-pipe. It's going to be significantly quieter than an Off Road H-pipe. As others have said, the sound quality is subjective, but there's no debating which is louder (or quieter).
If you go with a H-pipe, you're going to have a very loud car that will sound just like every other Ricky Racer out there...
Just letting you know ahead of time.
Also, no offense intended, but I'd take Flowmaster's opinion with a grain of salt.
The X-Pipe quieted my car down considerably more than my POS Mac H-Pipe. I prefer my car to be quieter plus I did feel like my car picked up some power, if anything it feels like it revs quicker and doesn't sound as obnoxious. Now I just need to get rid of these MAC mufflers and get some some better sounding and flowing mufflers.
Dr. Gas is looking better and better... I didn't care for the sound of the Bassani (think it's because the 'x' is too far back) I had on my Cobra. I am worried about ground clearance with the Dr. Gas as my car sits low... also suspect the x will sound better with a 'straight thru' design muffler (Dynomax? Magnaflow?) so that will need to be changed also.
