Hi,
Do any of you guys run an X-pipe crossover?
If so, what type of mufflers are effective with the X-pipe?
Is it a safe assumption that flowmasters are tuned for the traditional H-pipe?

Now I'm just repeating what I've heard so you may want to call a couple of the manufacturers but I've heard that X-pipes are optimized for a flow through design rather than the baffled design mufflers.

dynomax race magnums have been said to work really well --- i second what Jaazzy says, the baffles obviously restrict the heightened flow that is found with an x-pipe, especially an offroad x (without cats)
have a good one

I have a Dr. Gas X pipe on my 66 Shelby and it seems to work great. I don't race it or anything but it sounds very good and I use the Dyno Max mufflers which don't have the hollow sound of the Flowmasters. I don't mind the hollow sound, as a matter of fact I kinda like it, but all my friends hate it.....so there is something afterall to peer pressure...thought I saw high school a long time ago in the rear view mirror!
