Default Total gains for O/R x pipe + 93 tune?

How much total HP would I gain by going to an O/R x pipe and putting a SCT 93 octane tune on the car at the same time? anyone done a before/after dyno with these changes?

Also, would having flowmasters be worse for hp than some type of straight through muffler like borla stingers?

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I have not done a before/after dyno for a tune and mid pipe but peak gains might not be more than 10 or 15 rwhp. You might feel a better pull throughout the rpm range though.

IIRC someone did a flow test on common mufflers and Flowmasters (I think they were the 40's?) were among the worst, but I doubt anyone could feel the difference between a chambered muffler like the Flowmasters and a straight through muffler.

A 93oct tune should gain you a little power across a wide range of rpm. The X-pipe might gain you a little at peak. I'd bet on about 8-10rwhp gain at peak if a custom dyno tune is made.

The Flowmasters won't cost you any power vs straight thru mufflers on your car. The difference is pretty small on anything short of a boosted high HP motor.
