Default Switched back to stock H pipe?

The other day I switched back to my stock H pipe, I had a BBK off road X on the car. My question is how much hp do you guys think Im leaving on the table by going back to stock? I switched it because I hated how loud the car was.

LAME! Put it back on I would think you are losing some big HP considering you have the stage 4 blower on your car. The more flow the better the HP gains.

I guess only you can tell. Does it feel like it lost any or much? I doubt it really did lose but a few and if you hated the noise and don't really notice leave it. It's better to be happy with your car..

It doesn't feel any different, but the car sounds way better. Plus I can hear the blower whine more, which is cool! I'm putting the car on the dyno on saturday so we will see what she puts down. Hey, Drbobvs do you have your stock H pipe on your stang?

Looking at the O/R X and read up about it on the BBK site and said it is made to go with long tube headers. I only have shorties so it will prob be a little more of a project then I want.

Yes I have my stock H-pipe. I should get the BBK shorty's this week. I ordered them from Brenspeed on Tuesday. The only thing I would consider replacing the H withis a Prochamber, but I don't know if they make a catted one. I just can't getto likingthat X-pipe sound.
