Mid-pipe suggestions

I have a remus race exhaust on order and I am thinking about changing out the stock mid-pipe. Should I go with a x-pipe or just straight pipes??

I say wait until you install it and see if it's not loud enough for you

I agree with Remus. If you feel that it's not loud enough, get the x-pipe. Honestly, I'd probably go with the x-pipe anyway for performance reasons!

I would tend to agree. Also, as evidenced by this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxAQLnSra1Y, the Eisenmann "race" exhaust sound becomes somewhat tinny and raspy when the x-pipe is added. IMO it sounds better without it.
