Default pypes splice in X

hey guys, bought the pypes splice in x pipe from brenspeed this weekend, and im pumped about getting it on. I did search and couldnt find anything on this particular part. The only thing I came up with is the off road x / h pipes. My question is will I get a little more power up top but lose some low end torque ? And like always... will there be a sound difference ? Only thing I have done exhaust wise are the mac ax-backs. (this pipe keeps the stock cats) Does this splices in right before or right after the cats ?

thanks in advance

It will definitely be louder, and more raspy. That's the x splice in to keep the cats, right?

This was my first thought.. I am not a big fan of the mac mufflers with an x pipe. I heard it with offroad pipes, maybe it will sound better with cats..

generally x pipes are for non chamberd muffs like either straight pipes or glass packs. ie my pypes mid muffs but you will get a bit more raspy and more power BIT of power but that being said thats for non chamberds i dont know how its gonna act with your set up
