    Looking into getting either a O/R h or x pipe and wanted to know which sounds best with flowmaster mufflers.

    DO NOT BUY BBK OFF ROAD X PIPE WITH FLOWMASTERS!!!!
    I made that mistake, it sounded like crap. The combo of 40 series
    muffers and the wierd X design don't work well together.
    It crackled and popped on decel REALLY bad.
    I added 2 hi flow cats and it sounded great. The UPR and similar designs
    sound great without cats, with flowmasters.:beer:

    X1000. I have a BBK H paired with original 40's and it sounds amazing. I find the Prochamber has a nice tone as well but way too quiet for an offroad pipe.

    H for sure. Mac o/r h-pipe, single chamber flows dumped before the axle sounds vicious!!!

    BBK H with chambered mufflers. With 2 chamber Flows, it sounds like an old-school musclecar.

    General rule of thumb for me. With a chambered muffler the h always sounds better. With a straight through muffler the x will sound better. Hope this helps!

    The only problem is that I don't know if I have two chamber or straight through mufflers. I bought the car already with flowmaster mufflers installed and I have no idea what kind or series or anything

    Not sure that Flowmaster makes anything but chambered mufflers.
