    I am planning on getting an x pipe but being as this is my first GT what types are installation friendly meaning that I dont have to delete anything for it, I know mac makes some with and without cats and I need a little educating on the matter, any help would be great thanks!

    Have a look at the pics of the Bassani X-pipe at rpm outlet as this is the best pic I've seen. You can see the X pipe, cats and straight-through pipes all bolt together

    I think the Corsa is also pretty straightforward. I ordered the Corsa as I've ordered the Corsa axle-backs and they promise no drone at www.corsaperf.com but I haven't had it yet.

    I think the whole system is pretty easy to do yourself - just clamps.

    LV51FER, post up some video or sound clips of that exhuast when you get it installed if possible, would love to hear that. i know they have some good clips on their site, but i would like to hear some real life clips.
    and matrix, the bassani is definately the best and easiest way to go from what i hear.

    Got a UPR xpipe(o/r) and it was a simple and good fit. It is loud, though. UPR is running a 20% sale with email coupon . . .paid 139.00 after discount. Lightning Force Performance has a killer deal on Bassani stuff, too.

    if you get the flows with an x pipe, make sure it has high flow cats, or it will sound raspy!!

    If you are looking for something installation friendly, dont get the short prochamber. I ordered it because it was the cheapest prochamber, and as it turns out, I had to cut the stock h-pipe out after the cats and graft in the prochamber. It sounds badass though!

    Bassani catted x-pipe is what I almost got, but caved into to the price of the off road x pipe. It'll do what you want. Check with Lightning Force Performance ([email protected]) I got alot of personal feedback from him on stuff and his prices are good. Tell him "Sam" sent ya!

    you dont really get any drone unless u try and accelerate from like 25 in 5th gear, but you shouldnt be doing that anyways! also, when decelerating it makes all kinds of gurgly mustangy sounds. i LOVE the way it sounds, i have even had f-bodies compliment it!

    Dude your exhaust sounds real nice! I"m kinda new to this exhaust stuff on cars so what are the compcats that you said you have? is that a highflow cat? also you don't have a o/r x-pipe correct?

    You can't have an x-pipe with both compcats and have it be a an O/R pipe at the same time. The O/R part means you eliminated the cats.

    OH ok, i got that. So is the stock exhaust a true dual exhaust with two cats?

    Also will the h-pipe u intall replace your x-pipe?

    I"m just trying ot figure out what i can do to add some hp and give me some sound.

    Yes, it is true dual with 2 cats. And yes, when I put on my h-pipe it will completely replace my stock h-pipe (the GT comes with an h-pipe, not an x-pipe) and eliminate the catalytic converters.
