You'll have exhaust leaks with most aftermarket x pipes, I've tried both magnaflow and bassani.
Why would this be true? It all depends on the manufacturer as well as who installs it. If you self install and don't seat the couplings properly, yes, you'll have exhaust leak. I've had a pypes x-pipe since I purchased my car 3 years ago, both O/R, one prior to LT's and one After LT's, Never once have I had an exhaust leak. OP, It all depends on what you want in the end, I normally am one to say, that the more expensive car accessories do offer more, however, in some cases spending hundreds extra on a name isn't necessary, an X-pipe is that case. Just my 2 Cents.
