eBay

Does anyone have experience w eBay x pipes I've searched and all I've found was 1 review on a resonated speed daddy x-pipe. Does anyone have anything good to say? Or any reason not to get one and add resonators? For the price it seems to be an acceptable risk

I'm usually pretty weary about eBay purchases. Seems to be a hit or miss type of thing.

Being that the ACM and Turner test pipes are only $400 ish, why not go with that and mitigate your risk?

Mainly because the x-pipe is fairly cheap and i would be able to keep my current catted set up for inspections

I got a local muffler shop to make me an x-pipe to go with my eisenmann race for $250 installed. I was with them the entire time to make sure the welds were good etc...and they did a great job. Maybe that's something you can consider instead of ebay. The sound is very unique too, since its a one-off x-pipe.
