View Full Version : X-Pipe
03-10-2004, 07:01 PM
I'm thinking about re-working pretty much my entire exhaust system except for my stock cats. I've heard from different people that a custom Y-pipe is good, but I've also heard that an X-pipe is really good because it gives you the "true" dual exhaust. So I guess my question is, which is better Y-pipe or X-pipe?

Personally I think the X-pipe is better. It was designed to equalize the pressure in the rest of the exhaust. It will also make it sound a little different. I'm not real sure about the y-pipe I don't hear very much about them. Hopefully someone else can help us both on that one.

You are confusing "y" pipe with "h" pipe.
Y-pipe: For use when you are converting one pipe to two or two pipes into one.
H-pipe: Used when pipes are on opposite sides of the vehicle and is simply a piece of pipe that equalizes the pressure.
X-pipe: Used when the pipes are close together in a place and it mixes the exhaust gases and equalizes the pressure. Also makes the exhaust tone the same in each of the pipes.

i think i'm going with the x-pipe. i'm keeping the stock cats and running the two pipes into two spintech mufflers. the pricing seems reasonable and the power gains should be decent if i go with the 2.25" pipes out the rear.

Don't expect any kind of "good" gains just from reworking exhaust. Unless you eliminate restriction completely thus running open headers.
