Advice for X pipe to pair with M Performance Exhaust?

Hi,

Need some advise on which X pipe to go for to pair with my M performance exhaust, something which fits directly without any cutting or welding.

Thank You!

I'm pretty sure most (if not all tbh) are just direct bolt on and easily changeable. The most important thing is sound

Wait...the M Performance Exhaust doesn't change the factory X-pipe? I thought it was a full exhaust (not just slip on). And for $3,999...wow. I like that you can residualize $1,000 of it on a lease, but with a 58% resid you still pay $2,999 + $580 = $3,579 over 3 yrs.

Gintani is superb and comes with three variations, high flow cats, quad resonated or catless.

Yup, it's just an axle back.

Don't think too many are paying MSRP for it. Doesn't take much looking to get down to 3400 or so shipped. Not that this isn't coolaid pricing, it is, but it can be had for less.

Depends on whether you want to get rid of your front cats or not. If you want to keep your front cats untouched, then you MUST cut the exhaust (the front and rear cats are all one piece). Lots of good options out there... SEARCH.
