    OK guys as you know i have a stock internal/block 5.0 with a KB on it. I have stock exhaust manifolds with the stock hpipe, and mac mufflers. Which brand of X/H pipe should i go with? Who makes the best? Should i go H or X? The muffler man said i should see major gains with no cats...

    no wonder your hp dyno numbers were low, I didn't know you still had this stock exhaust stuff :D well on the 50 cars I think the h pipe is the most commonly used, however I have heard several x pipes on them and they have a cool sound that is very unique. I think the x pipe does have a slight advantage in power production if I'm not mistaken :dunno: I would say long tubes ( for sure ) and a off road x :dancing6: :dancing6: Man you should see significant power gains from that, not to mention the AWESOME exhaust sound :)

    Imagine running and trying to exhale through a straw. Those 4 cats are restrictive as hell and you will feel a power difference right off the bat with either an X or H.

    Xpipes sound good. Stay away from BBK X pipes. They are the devil and they suck :puke: .

    You have the mac mufflers. If you want the old school deep throty angry sound go with an hpipe


    If you want the exotic higher pitch sound go with the Xpipe.

    Both sounds good, but bbk xpipe with mostly any muffler has alot of rasp and tons of people hate it.

    yea x pipe will be a little raspier but will flow slightly better and the h pipe sound deeper and meaner ESPECIALLY on the 5.0...the power difference is so minimal though that you really just have to decide what sound you like...h pipes sound absolutely mean on the five-oh


    i love my prochamber but i really really miss the sound of my h pipe
