X-Pipe or H-Pipe?


As performance enthusiasts, of course we desire the greatest performance from our vehicles. When it comes to a mid-pipe upgrade to enhance performance, we’re faced with an important question: X-Pipe or H-Pipe? Making this decision seems extremely difficult, but take it from the after-market exhaust specialists: this question is a no-brainer. The H-Pipe exhaust system beats the X-Pipe in regards to gas-flow, efficiency, muscle car sound, and over all raw American performance… hands down.

Why? The unique design of the H-Pipe creates a greater surface area for the exhaust gases, meaning better efficiency. The tubes of the X-Pipe cross at the middle of the system, compressing more volume of gases into a smaller space, and decreasing the air flow to create additional back-up of exhaust gases. The H-Pipe avoids this by directing the exhaust gases along separate air ways connecting them by a short cross-tube. With the H-Pipe, increasing the displacement of gases in your engine and maximizing your engine’s efficiency is a given.

But that’s not all that the H-Pipe accomplishes. MRT has designed a superior MaxFlow H-Pipe that beats all others on the market, H-Pipes and X-Pipes alike. MRT achieves the highest engine efficiency with three key elements: 1) a greater tube diameter, 2) a smoother exhaust path, 3) and minimum catalyst backpressure.

The MRT MaxFlow H-Pipe widens the mid-pipe to 2.5 or 3 inches in diameter for maximum air-flow. What’s more, MRT's CNC mandrel bending technology ensures that our MaxFlow H-Pipe features smooth bends and precise fit. Now that’s a perfect fit!

Most MRT MaxFlow H-Pipe products offer additional gains by reducing restrictions caused by the catalytic converters ("cats") in two distinct versions: Performance and Race. The Performance version of the MRT MaxFlow H-Pipe is equipped with high-performance ceramic catalysts that improve exhaust flow over the factory equipment. The Performance optional is ideal for the street performance driver, as it offers a reasonable compromise between performance output and emissions. The Race version of the MRT MaxFlow H-Pipe is a perfect fit for the extreme performance driver. The Race H-Pipe features a premium metallic catalyst for a greater reduction in back-pressure, best saved for the track. Choose the best fit for driving needs in order to receive the performance gains that fit you!

What do a greater tube diameter, a smoother exhaust path, and minimum catalyst backpressure add up to? MAXIMUM performance for your vehicle! But that’s not all. With great design you need great material; that’s why MRT crafts their MaxFlow H-Pipes out of 304 Stainless Steel, and made in the USA at MRT Headquarters in Plymouth, Michigan. In a material that has superior resistance to corrosion, the H-Pipe offers long-lasting premium performance: the performance enthusiast’s dream. Go with the H-Pipe and take it from us, you WON’T be disappointed!
