My car is a cruiser, I'm going to be running duals from factory manifolds & I have no plans to do any kind of racing, but I also want to get as much power out of what I have; so which one do I want to go with?

I would use straight duals with Magnaflow glass packs... The H pipe sounds better to me then the X. I just don't see the need for one, they add weight and heat the transmission area. They make a V-8 sound like a 6 with a single exhaust and glass pack to me...

Those 289s are nice sounding motors with duals and a pair of packs, good luck....
