If Top Speed would sell the front half of its x-pipe for half the price, people could have test pipes cheap.

I have been running the Top Speed x-pipe for about 6 months and have experienced no issues. Like all catless and resonatorless x-pipes, it was loud, so I added four resonators. Works great, fits fine and I have a total of $825 in it.

I have a hard time understanding how the front half of the Top Speed x-pipe could have any issues as test pipes. It has thick flanges that fit the headers well and the stainless steel piping is well formed without any restrictive bends.

I don't know anything about the Top Speed axle-back system.

We are working on pricing and when you go with our test pipe you will have to cut your stock "test pipe" section, but can clamp them back on if necessary

Yes pretty similar, we are working on our race cars for our upcoming week, it will most likely be two weeks to get a final product and pictures, sorry for the delay
we have one pretty much ready but do not want to post until it is complete. Again, sorry for the delay

They are working on putting one together, but they have been extremely busy with big product (such as 3 races cars and long term cars that customers want done) I know they will get it done and I am very anxious to have a set. So be patient everyone I know it will get done cause im paying for it haha

I know, I have though about buying the top speed x pipe and installing 2 resonators and 2 200cpi cats all for about 750. Hope they get these finished up, I have the evolve tune for the primary cat delete and I cant use it till I decide what route to take.

I know the feeling, I have been doing some exhaust work and I would have liked a set of test pipes regardless so I could have gotten it all done at once.

It wouldnt take me 2 hours to cut the primary out and weld pipes in place but I know if I do that I will run into issues at inspection time then I will be screwed, have to find a stock pipe etc. Guess just have to be more patient. LOL
