I'm not the brightest bulb in the knife drawer, but I don't understand why folks buy the x-pipes. I mean that sincerely, not as an indictment of any sort. Is there something better about these x-pipes than the factory x-pipe on the car? I simply went to my local performance exhaust shop and had them cut out the resonators and weld replacement pipe in their place. I didn't replace the factory x-pipe. Twenty minutes and $88 later I was done. It is still quiet inside when the valves are closed and there is no drone whatsoever. When I was looking into whether or not to remove my resonators, every response from those who had done it was, "If you're considering doing it, DO IT!!" I echo that sentiment in strongest terms.

The car was loud enough immediately after I did it that I wondered if I had done the right thing as I was leaving the shop. That lasted about 12.7 seconds. Minus those dozen seconds, I haven't doubted the decision one bit.

Hope this helped. And if there's more to this x-pipe thing that I'm missing, I'd appreciate whatever info/advice anyone has to offer.

Dont know if you are still thinking about this but I thought $600 for a x-pipe replacement was crazy and did what A LOT of people have done and paid a local muffler shop to just cut the resonators out and replace with straight pipe. Factor x-pipe is still in there and what a huge difference it made. 1st mod i did to the car and I am still kicking myself for waiting 4 months of ownership to do it. Save your $$ and just do it!

I did the same thing to my 2020 GT350 HEP, cut the resonators out and replace with straight pipes. Not sure it makes a difference, I had them use stainless steel pipes. The sound is something I crave every time I drive this car. My friend with a 2006 Ford GT says it’s the best sounding car he has ever heard.
