OK. I have a Mac O/R H-Pipe that is just too loud for a daily driver. If I don't sell it, would swapping the Mac H piece the mid-pipe with the stock do anything if at all fit?

I don't understand your question. Are you talking about cutting the H out of the Mac mid pipe and welding it in place of the stock cross over?

What is this too loud you speak of?:confused: I guess my noise tolerance must be higher.

Are you running the stock catback? I don't think you can just bolt that h piece into you old one. The stock one should be a one piece unit.

There is not realy any performance gain by just changing out the H-section. Its the stock cats that will kill the power. you could go to a catted h-pipe, they come with high flow cats. and are quieter. But if you are gonna use the stock cats you might as well put the stock mid pipe back on.

Haha thanks 96GTRagTop.

Yeah I know it's those damn stock cats, I felt a SOP lost when I swapped back to stock. If I don't lose HP doing this, would it make a difference in sound?

BTW I totally agree the o/r h-pipe sounded badass, but again that 2000rpm drone with a 40 minute commute and going to work with exhaust cologne...:no

So you are gonna put the Mac H section on your stock mid pipe? Or am I missing this whole thing, What are you actualy planning to do. If it involves the stock cats going back on then yes you will lose power, and it will be quieter.

Yes. The stock cats are back on. I recall there being flanges so I was thinking about putting the Mac "h" piece on with the stock cats. I don't expect gains but rather a more aggressive sound between my stock cats with flows and catless with flows. Like turning the exhaust volume up a little..tuning the exhaust sound.

I have the parts so I might as well try if I can. But if it doesn't do **** then I'll just sell it.

I'll take measurements and if the mac has a bigger diameter I'll try it out and see.
