How much would should I expect to pay to get a dual exhaust custom made for my 06 V6 including X or H pipe and mid pipe. Also, how much of a power difference is there on the X pipe over the H?

Less than $500, I have an X and have only heard that it yields more hp, but I doubt an H would be too far behind. the difference is supposed to be slightly deeper sound with the H pipe.

You're not going to notice a power difference between an H or X Pipe

If I got the GT version of the Flowmaster American Thunders couldni have a custom exhaust with an H pipe made to fit on my V6? Would it sound good?

Yes. I picked up a set of axelbacks from ebay, took em to my friend's exhaust shop, told him I want an H pipe and he did the rest. Everyone has a different opinion on exhaust so the best thing to do is listen to all different set-ups and find one you like. Just don't get rid of the cats, then it will sound shitty

So if I buy the AT's I can take them to a local exhaust shop and say I want a H pipe and some midpipes to fit my car and the AT axlebacks and to keep the cats?

Would they cut my bumper for me?

I'm actually pretty bumped out. I went to a shop yesturday and dropped my car off for 6hrs. Told him to throw on some true duals with some flowmaster mufflers. 6hrs later I get a call saying he won't cut the bumper. Only way I can have it done there is if I purchase the GT Bumper/some aftermarket bumper =/

you can cut it yourself with a dremel or dye grinder and a template. its not hard. just use painters tape on the area your cutting to keep any paint from chipping off

You don't have to. I think it looks a lot better but you can cut the V6 bumper like T-money said. That's what I did at first

Cutting the bumper is easy as ****. Your shop is lazy.

Do T-Money's version.

No power difference between the H and X pipes. Just the H pipe gives a deeper tone and the X gives a more aggressive raspy tone.

Anyone with the American Thunder flows on their cars with an H pipe have any information concerning drone?

yeah its gonna drone a bit considering there is no fiberglass in the flows just exhaust channels, but i dont think it that bad. its worse in the new edges due to the muffler placement.

Well are there any mufflers you'd recommend that sound good with less drone?

You said it's not bad, right? How much louder is it over the stock with the H pipes and mids?

well ive had my flows for a while so im used to the sound but it is significantly louder but imo its worth it. i love the sound and to me the drone isnt that bad unless youre cruising at fairly high rpms

Is it a head turning loudness? If I'm driving somewhere around a group of people and hit the gas will it be a sound that'll make them turn and say "what was that?"
