I take it the only thing a Y-Pipe does it make to where you run two pipee into one right?:confused: As for the H-Pipe and X-Pipe I was wondering was wondering is their any performance difference between the the two?

Thanks,

Chris

a y pipe makes one pipe into two or two into one ( why would you want 2 into 1? lol) an h pipe im not too sure about sounds like it would be like a pipe running in between your dual exhaust points which i dont know what good that would do and an x pipe i think would just criss cross your two pipes. but like i said earlier **** all the x's h's and y's just go true dual which is like two complete separate pipes. it costs way more if you do it right though two cats two mufflers more pipe headers etc... you wouldnt have to have headers but why waste all that money on the exhaust and not even upgrade the flow right where it starts.

H Pipe:

An H pipe helps equalize the exhaust pressures between the two banks of tubing as the hot gases and sound waves travel down the tubing. This, in effect, relieves the exhaust pressures as they travel through the H tubing, generally creating an increase in torque. This will also give an added sound reduction when the sound waves combine inside the H tubing.

X Pipe:

An X pipe will actually help to scavenge exhaust pulses from one bank as the opposite exhaust pulse passes through the X, thus creating a vacuum effect at the valve, resulting in a cleaner burn in the cylinder. This generally equals added torque and, like the H pipe, a reduction in sound as the sound waves combine in the X pipe.

Y Pipe:

The Y pipe, which works well on several applications, utilizes a dual exhaust off the manifolds/ headers and runs back a specified distance, then the two pipes enter the Y pipe and become one larger pipe. This Y helps each bank to scavenge the other as the pulses travel down through the Y and are joined together into the single common tubing. This creates a vacuum in the exhaust valve, resulting in a cleaner burn in the cylinder. A sound reduction is also achieved as the sound waves combine in the Y pipe.

For your application, since right now it seems to be rather mild, a GOOD Y pipe with a single pipe going to the back and then a mufller that splits them should work great. (I did that in my 91) Remember that your exhaust goes right by the footwell on the passenger side. With true dual it might get rather hot since your stuffing 2 pipes in a space where a single pipe used to be.

Hope this helps a bit icon_wink.gif

i know you didnt just explain that **** on your own icon_lol.gif you had to have read it somewhere. thats what i always do read it double check what i read about somethin then enlighten everyone on the board. very descriptive. i wouldnt want a reduction in sound though.

Yeah I did get it from this oval racing website. icon_wink.gif

But it explains in good detail what he wanted to know.

Any exhaust is going to have a reduction in sound. If you dont want a reduction in sound just run open headers. Did that for a day in my camaro. It sounded like a Top Fuel Dragster.

I went past a redneck bar and all I heard was "YEEEHAAAAA!!!!"
so I know it was loud. icon_lol.gif

btw, none of these will work unless you have a have true dual exhaust (1 pipe coming from each header/manifold)
