    New Guy Here!!

    heyy everyone my name is dom i have a 2002 trans am ws6 navy blue metallic 6 speed manual with 12,000 thousand miles...i have had an 05 mustang v6 n a 06 mustang gt...i traded in the gt to buy my dream car...n it was the best desicion i ever made i absolutly love it...i was thinking of doing something with the exhaust...these are some of my ideas...

    1). taking out the cats
    2). installing an exhaust cut out
    3).or just a muffler...if u can give me your opinion on what company is best for the muffler...i would appreciate it.

    if u could give ur opinions on this i would love it

    From what it sounds like (having 2 06 cars) like you might have a good amount of $$$ so I would go for the best exhaust in my opinion and get a full borla exhuast,

    A you can add and x and still be true duals im prty sure. All it would be is 2 pipes to an X and 2 on out with whatever else you do muflers or what not. The X is more for sound than anything but does slightly help performance(same with an H). Straight pipe(s) is an exhaust without a mufler of resonator of some sort. Usually those are duals but you could have a straight pipe with a Y. Thats my understanding correct me if im wrong but thats prty close.

    Yes. the X pipe helps balance the exhaust flow between the cylinder banks.

    Im getting true duals put in this week. You cant have true duals with a Y-pipe. Your option is either straight pipes, X-Pipe, or H-pipe. The best way to go is X or H. X pipe gives you more horse power and torque at lower rpms. H pipe gives you horse power and torque at higher rpms, and it is louder then the x pipe. Im not sure how much power and torque is going to give you, but I hear the x pipe gives more, but not sure on that. And btw..Im getting bassani True duals.

    I would say the best headers are eaither QTP or kooks. but they cost a pretty penny.

    I thought the X pipe gave more HP and and H pipe gave more torque plus the H pipe has a better sound to it but thats opinion. The LS1 already has lots of torque already.

    i read on ls1sounds.com that the X pipe is for better performance and the H pipe is for better sound..

    yea i'd like to hear some of them in person before i set make any decisions... i'll definetly go for the X pipe though. i got a friend who's got kooks on his vette w/ a 3" X pipe so i'll have to go hear that and see what i think
