exhaust system
« on: July 11, 2009, 10:44:03 PM »
Okay I am looking to get my exhasut system going. As most of you know I took my Manifolds off and my single exhaust was all rusted. I keep seeing y pipe and h pipe and dont know which one is the best or why they even matter. I am looking for the complete kit, and I know I have to get my headers seperate, but I am only finding 4v headers and no 2v.I am still dont know if it would hurt to get 4v or if it even matters. Looking for some ideas on what to get. I know I am trying to get the whole system for a good price, I can change out the mufflers if they are cheap, and I think a good 2 and a half pipes would be good. I am haveing a hard time finding a system that works, and the y or H isn't helping me. Is is bad if I have a 2v goignt o hurt me if I start throwing on all this 4v stuff. I know my valves are smaller and dont want to let it breath to much where it hurts because that is all it wants to do is breath and not suck, if that makes sense. If any of my topics aren't making sense I am sorry but I ripped off my finger and the army doped me up.

Russ, the "H" pipe allows the exhaust to enter into both of the mufflers from both sides of your engine exhaust , but the "Y" pipe allows the exhaust gas to enter both mufflers without having to go around a corner as it does in the H pipe, making the "X" pipe more efficient.

yes x pipe is the the best one ive been told, in both sound and more efficient. Check out summit racing they usually have whole x pipe kits from headers to tail pipes with the mufflers included for a pretty decent price. good luck

The first time I did my exhaust I went with the H and it seemed ok. Later after a couple engine swaps and after having butchered up the thing a couple of time and feeling it just looked like crap... I redid the whole thing again this time with an X.. The X was a significant improvement I could feel it instantly. The thing about exhaust system is they really arent something a novice can throw together they are a welding art. My exhaust system is bad ass, Hooker ceramic coated headers into 2 1/2 inch pipes cherry bomb vortex mufflers and all. Sounds fantastic. I have bought 2v Cleveland headers on E-bay before for $75 brand new you just gotta watch for them. I know summit has the headmans for not to much. Spend some money on your exhaust system ITS WORTH IT..

i agree they can be a bit pricey but the end result is well worth it in my opinion.
