Your mockup looks pretty nice, but overlay the x-pipe center section more. You want a scavenging effect created here. An example I really like is the Mastermind X-pipe. Google it and take a look at the crossover.

Looks like a fun project that you should def at least make a couple; good luck@!

Perfect, thanks for the feedback guys! Again, if any of you know analytical stuff about performance specs please fill me in!
