    I Installed the Magnaflow Tru-X Pipe today and it really is what i was looking for! I installed the x pipe 2FT from my muffler i heard it's best to get it as far back as you can for the most performance gains. I could tell it made the exhaust a lil bit quieter but not much at all compared to me having straights with no muffs before. When i'm at higher RPM's it has that deep tone to them and is louder which i like allot but quiet at low RPM's. I can tell the exhaust coming out the tip's sounds more smooth and good toned and is a very good even flow both exhaust are on rythm. IT also feels much smoother shifting when i'm going thru the RPM's and i can tell i got some added HP and Torque along with it.The powerband is allot smoother too feel's like i'm floating it runs so smooth now. I am very pleased with this x pipe and would recommend any to get this you want be disappointed. I can tell a big difference at a complete stop and when i floor it i turn over both back tires now and before with straights and no muff it wouldn't even try tunrning one lol!!!

    Not yet man but i can tell some when i have it in park when i rev it up it's not that loud but has a very good sound too it. I have been doin research online and people were sayin that with a True Dual Exhaust Setup that 2.5 inch pipe is very good that don't need to go too big otherwise will get robbed of hp and torque. I have the True Dual Exhaust Setup with 2.5 inch pipe. Also they were saying that with a x pipe along with a true dual exhaust setp it's best to have mufflers such as magnaflows and such since they are a stright thru design muffler compared to a chambered muffler that it will give you more HP and Torque is this true??? If so i will be selling my flowmaster super 40 and buying a magnaflow muffler to see how it perform's. I was told by a representative from www.autoanything.com whom i was chatting with online thru the website saif that the magnaflow will give me 10HP and 10Torque added compared to the chambered flowmaster because the exhaust can breath better and flow faster than chambered is this true???
