    Do you have an offroad x or catted x? In my opinion, there is a difference between companies, as well. I have the magnaflow catted x and freakin love it. Also, what mufflers do you have. Most of the time an x pipe sounds better with a flow through style muffler(like stingers, magnapacks, etc) and h pipes sound better with chambered mufflers (mac, flowmaster, etc).

    I personally think H pipes sound better. X's trumpet and drone badly. Catted X's are much better, but I still prefer the H pipe.

    What is a good h pipe? Does the sound vary from manufacturer to manufacturer?

    No cat X-pipe with a chambered muffler will produce an extremely raspy tone. If you want to keep the flowmasters and not have the raspy sound then get either cats, an h-pipe, h-pipe and cats or a prochamber.

    I love the way my Steeda mufflers sound with an H-pipe. I'd like to upgrade to better flowing cats and an aftermarket H-pipe but I dunno who makes a good one that also lays out some noticeable power improvements.

    I am not that big of a fan of the Flowmaster and non catted H pipe setup. I have this on my car and at around 2500rpm I get this nasty resonating sound. :(
