From what I've read the OEM xpipe is a fairly good design...the main issue is with the restrictive OEM primary cats. Is this simply not possible?
It would probably be cheaper to just buy and xpipe section that has nice smooth bends rather than the crushed OEM ones. The labor to cut and install HFC's to this xpipe would be a wast of time.
