I did notice a significate reduction in drone with the X pipe. I am hopping it doesn't come back with the Kooks. Dealing with the exhaust issues on these cars is frustrating to me. If the drone is too bad after the header install, I'm going to have resonators welded in.If you have people (kids) in the backseat an h pipe will drone more in the interior. You do not get much drone (hum) in the interior wilt the x pipes. I like the offroad x with the GTA mufflers.However, with some mufflers they sound terrible.
The best way to tell is go to a car show and ask what the guys are running and ask to hear it.I too am in a similar boat right now. Ive decided on the Pypes violator axleback and them do come in a kit with the off road X ( will probably get the cats though ) but been reading that the H might be better with this axleback system. There is so much varrying opinion out there it truly is tough to decide and being in a market with very little aftermarket support makes it even harder, so I order everything online - :headscratch:
So any advice you guys have is greatly appreciated :bigthumbsup
Those are the ones I stay away from. You buy cheap, you get cheapAgree 100 % unless you get a deal you can't refuse:hihi:
I love those deals, paid 100.00 for my FRPP GTA'S (love the sound) and just over 200.00 for my CDC complete shaker assembly.:bigthumbsupThose are the ones I stay away from. You buy cheap, you get cheap
As far as sound goes the H-pipes soud kinda like your classiv 5.0 with Flows. You know, the ones you can hear in the middle of the night even if they were out of the way.
The X-pipe sounds like it's spinning the motor faster (which I like). I never thought of them as "raspy". To me my X pipes with a set of magnaflows sounds like A sportbike with a huge motor.
