Cross Pipe in exhaust or straight sidepipes
I'm building an exhaust system and considering two options. In order to improve exhaust as much as possible for a street rod with mufflers or glasspacks, I've thought about using an exhaust crossover behind the headers then through glasspacks to a side piped exhaust. So the exhaust exists in front of the read wheels, OR simply coming off the headers to a glasspack to the sidepiped exhaust. Would there be any improvement in exhaust efficiency if a crosspipe was used ?

exhaust sys
u'r not look'n at much restriction to begin with... i really don't think u'll see or feel anything, except on a dyno.... save u'r money and do header to muffler to side pipe in 2.5"

Thanks DelawareBill. That's pretty much how I felt about the crossover pipe too. I'm going to take your advice and keep it simple. Good luck selling your T-Bucket. It looks real nice.
