what is the best position for an H-pipe

I'd like to know if the H-pipe should as close to the headers as possible or as far away as possible still ahead of the mufflers of course

If you are using an 'H' pipe, and it's on a normal street driven car, the RPM range is going to be from idle, 6-800 RPM right on thru the range to whatever your top engine speed will be, i.e. 6500 RPM - occasionally. This would say that it needs to be located somewhere in front of the mufflers. Funny - no, not really as the exhaust gas speed varies as the engine speed. If you were just using it as a race car, basically high RPM, then you could get fancy with the paint, crayon or whatever and find that sweet spot. For a street driven car, locate it where it fits best and interferes with as few other parts. Your performance adder will be minimal and it will attenuate the exhaust sound. My '31 sounds not too bad with Flowmasters and the 'H'. And it's location - where it fits well.
