Default X Pipes vs H Pipes

I have a 95 Mustang 3.8 v6 with true dual exhaust with a H pipe, Is it worth pulling the H pipe and adding an X pipe? if so how would I benefit on the improvements?

Here is a video I made of how the pipes sound now.

If you want even raspier..I dont know why your H pipe is that raspy to begin with.

EDIT NM I see you dont have long tube headers. That may be it.

Pushrod V6 is an even firing engine. There is no change in sound or 'performance' (term used VERY loosely) H vs X pipe.

I'd put some cats back on it. A good set of high flows will help you tone a bit.

Yep cats will help quite a bit.

Actually looking at it, if you add just two cats it looks like you will have pretty much the same setup I have.
