2006 Mustang GT. Shaker scoop plus Granatelli intake

I,Patstang, have an '06 GT with the shaker intake. A Mustang enthusiast in Sheboygan, WI, has the 62mm GMS throttle body and the GMS CAI with MAF sensor. He did not have to re-flash.
I like the cool factor of the shaker, but, want the GMS parts. Can I route the shaker air flow into the GMS "box" rather than just leave it uncoupled under the hood. Also, with said mods, does the Ford X-pipe do any better than the factory H-pipe?

Thanks


2006 GT Premium: Vista Blue, Hurst, CDC shaker, boomtubes,chromed taillight, brake light, & quarter markers trim. JLT/SCT 93 C & M of Hubertus, WI dyno tune, JLT cold air routing to filter. Sequential Tails, Magnetic black out panel.

2004 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor: 70 mm TB, SCT tune, VX mufflers, J-Mod, 3.73 Eaton limited slip, moose tenderizer.

2003 Mercury Marauder: Kooks long tubes, K & N CAI.

Does the X just replace the H aft of the cats or is it an offroad X? Do you have a link?

my take on the factory H versus factory X is just a difference in the tone of the exhaust. One is more "throatier" and the other has more of a "rumble". Or something along those lines.

Yes... But an X-pipe catted or uncatted will always yield a few more HP because it does a far better job of balancing the exhaust gasses.

Hey Guys this is my first post on this forum. I own a 2005 Black Gt Vert. So here is my question : If you get extra hp by using an x pipe rather than an h pipe. Why wouldn't the developers at ford take this into consideration and make an x pipe a stock option?

Because Ford also looks at emissions and sound when developing the exhaust. Performance is not the first consideration.
