    I'm personally not a fan of it, I like a more mellow tone, somethings that's different on the street.

    There is no scientific proof making one better than the other. They both serve the same purpose, to equalize pressure and tone in each ehaust tube for dual exhaust vehicles. Without a connecting pipe (X or H) one pipe could have a higher pressure and different exhaust note than the other.

    Again either one serves the same purpose but in my opnion its dumb to run a dual set up without a connection between the tubes. As you get higher mileage and different amounts of wear you could have one pipe sounding alot different than the other. Again that is just my opinion. The facts is simply that there is no proof making one better than the other.
