I just called Bassani asking about their X-pipes, they wanted $135 for theirs. Are there any cheaper ones available or can I just go ahead and make one myself? If so, what radius bend needs to be achieved for good results? Thanks for the help.

Sorry double post.

it will be hard to build one for much less than $135. if you do just be sure that when you look up the right pipe that you are looking straight up through the left pipe. did that make sense?? good luck

I personally can't stand X or H pipes. Call me old-fashoned. I'll take open headers any day, or short pipes/muffs and turn-downs.

There is a cheaper option. I used a FlowTech 3" Universal X pipe that I had my local muffler shop weld in. I ordered mine from Summit for about $35.00 plus shipping. The part # is BIG-53621. They had to cut a little off the ends to make it fit, but I am real happy with it.
Hope this helps

Thanks guys. I was just gonna get one and still have the option to go back to true duals if I didn't like the tone or flow. The one Rob mentioned in Summit must have been hiding from me. Thanks for the suggestions.

yeah .. 35 bucks is a good price for a 3" X-pipe.

A good muffler shop guy that can twist up some nice pipes would charge more than that to make one, plus labor to install it of course.
