guess you're right, doesn't do any good to discuss it here anyway since it is california.

i always liked bassani for x-pipes. as far as x vs h... i see new data about every week on which is better so i'll leave that for someone else to tackle and have people come out of the woodwork at them... but if you're using the stock cats, the sound difference between the two won't be significant, but with test pipes/hi-flow (or long tubes) the x-pipe sounds more aggressive imo, but can be a little raspier, and the h-pipe is more of a mellow tone (don't take that to mean quiet.)
