Default New X-Pipe

The Y-pipe I originally had for my right side kept on smashing into the driveshaft. Poor install and dumb decision on my part to go with that set up. Finally clunked real loud today going over a speed bump and I decided I'd had enough. Took it to Speedway Muffler and asked how it would be fixed right. They said X-pipe, I said O.K. Lesson to all you newbies out there, don't try to cut corners, get it done the right way first so you're happy with it.

The shop cut off the old pipe, left the mufflers where they were. So yeah, when they made the X they had to tweak it a bit to fit where the mufflers already were. Looks 10X better than it did.
