Well I had the exhaust shop put true duals all the way back today but they did not put in an h or an x pipe. Is that really gonna matter that the pipes are not connected in any way? I think it sounds really good and runs great but I was wondering is it gonna make any difference performance wise?

they say it makes a diffrence... i dont think you would notice a diffrence in power at all, but backpressure is what your worried about anyway, because mine dosnt have a xpipe, and when i rev it, it kinda pops or sputters on the way down... they told me that if i had a xpipe it wouldnt do that anywhere near as much.

There are a coupel true reasons for the "X" or "H" pipe.

one of course is Back preasure. . .
another is to Blanace the sound

The factory (In 1995) put dual cats, one resignator where pipes join, one smaller resignator in middle of single pipe, and after split at rear wheels put dual mufflers.
Their reasoning behinf the whole operation was not to make it smog leagl or anything else oth than to quiet the car down.

I say Let them Roar, Everyone knows the sound of a Mustang GT with Flowmasters, because it's deep throaghty roar has a distinct sound, but Ford decided it wanted to make these cars desirable to the middle aged individuals, to whom bought many many of these cars when they were brand spankin' new.

What Ford Needs to do now is Re-invent the wheel or it doesn't have a prayer.
Why not relaese a new Full size couple like the Thunderbird/Cougar/Mark VIII.
Chevrolet has one, Monte Carlo

I would definately consider a purchase of a new Rear wheel drive V-8 Coupe from Ford if they offered a worthy vehicle. Fusion is a good car, don't get me wrong, but I was disgusted when Scion and Honda relased their Box shaped Mini SUV's because of the lack of design. So what did FORD do, The relaesed two new cars, 500 and Fusion, which both lack the sporty look I want in a car.

What does everyone else think?

actually having a crossover in the wrong spot does more harm than good. If you don't get the crossover in the right spot your better without it they say. Theres nothing wrong with running no crossover. It does balance the exhaust pressure thou and the sound is different. On your setup there is probally little gain with a crossover really. More important at higher HP levels running NA.
