    <font color="green"> Crossover of some sort is always a good thing. I do, however, feel that dual 3" is too much pipe for that motor. Dual 2.25 would be better, 2.5 at the most. Any bigger and you're going to lose low end torque.</font color>

    X-pipe, just be sure to go to a shop that knows what they are doing, to get the most benefit you need to get it "timed", located so the the exhaust pulses help scavenge from the system.

    I was thinking about doing it my self I dont really see how you can really know what your doing just make all welds clean and solid(no leaks) and try to put in the lest bends as posible and then try to bring it up as high as you can am I right?

    And what you yall say is better X or H pipe?
