Looks like crush bends that is a hybrid of an X and an H pipe. You can buy x-pipes in summit and jegs for about $100 that might be a better starting point. Then add straight pipe.

For $475, you can buy a complete header to rear exhaust Top Speed X Pipe. I have one my car. This way there is no need to hack your stock one.

Sosi has been selling a better version of a cut and weld X pipe for years for about the same price you are offering.

I think that I don't use the word "phenomenal" in quite the same context as you do. The bends are poor and why the square tubing for the H? Says "what I had laying around the shop" to me. Because you have none of the advantage of a true X pipe in this H pipe those sad bends are wasted time as you could have straight piped the crossover tube (the horizontal of the H) with the same result. This is one of the worst setups I have seen for this car to date and likely to be inferior to straight piping it without and sort of X or H at all if I had to guess. Sometimes you really can save too much money.

OP: make one with Xpipe not H... the flow will not be smooth with the H section on it... the xpipe must meet in the middle. not add another tube just to make the process easy to weld. plus... exhaust to xpipe clamb needs the ball joint... like the oem...

sad to say that for 500? turner test pipe is way better... also if your going to make a straight pipe no one would buy it cause once you straight pipe our cars its fawkin loud...

Guaranteed fitment on a cut and weld piece? Doesn't appear to be stainless from the pics either unless it was painted.

I have a feeling the OP might have ended the exhaust fabricators existence. This is akin to a straight virgin male getting duped by a transexual thai hooker.
