Post Crossover pipe in exhaust

I am about to 'open' up the exhaust on my '36. It currently has 2" exhaust on it with a cross over pipe.

What do you guys think of either an X junction on the new exhaust, or a cross over pipe, or nothing at all.

I am looking for a good (loud) sounding full exhaust that gives the best performance possible. The '36 is of course not driven much (1000-1500 miles per year).

Thanks!

Strick

A crossover or x pipe either one is a good idea, they give you a little more bottom end torque.

I have had real good luck with cross pipe (aka "H" pipe) and they are much easier to install and take up less space than the "X" pipe. The cross pipe will make the system quieter and will add some low and mid range torque, if it is installed correctly. To determine where to install the pipe, paint a section (about 18" TO 24") of your exhaust system behind the collector with cheap spray paint. Drive the car a few miles and look at the paint on the exhaust. The point where burned paint meets unburned paint is the exact point to put the cross pipe.
