Got GT/CS mufflers need a h or x pipe?

Well i just got a new v6 mustang and i was able to get a set of GT/CS takeoffs off of ebay and i want to get them put on asap but i was wondering wat would be better for me to buy a h or x pipe off the internet or let the exhaust shop make me a h or x pipe. i have a few choicesim looking at.

Ford Racing 2005-08 Mustang GT X-Pipe - JEGS

Pypes 409 Stainless Steel Cut & Clamp X-Pipe (05-09 V6) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

I couldnt find any H pipes and were there were made for gt or will those fit my car and wat does a off road pipes be able to pass smog. If any site With a h or x pipe i would be gratefull.

IMO....the H sounds better than an X on a V6.The off-road pipe will not pass smog.



Cherish those around you,for at the blink
of an eye,they can be gone.

That Pypes X will work fine and you'll retain your OEM cats.

you are still going to need adriver's side over the axle pipe and hangers. there is a saleen conversion for a v6 on ebay for sale now if you dont care if you have true duals or not. it splits to duals after the y pipe would just be a bolt on. might be the way to go as duals are basically for looks on our cars no real hp gains.

although the H sounds the best, it is cheaper just to cut your y pipe and run 2 straight pipes over the axle to your muffs
