    So I had went with the true duals with 10 series Flowmaster and black tips. After about a month I did notice the kick was gone at take off and a little less msg, but God did I love the sound as you guys heard in my in cab recordings.
    I decided to I have a x pipe installed.....

    Well the power is back and just 15 mins of driving my mpg is already going up...

    But i lost that sound I had...

    But it is more of a performance Mustang sound now instead of the cackling loud sound but still sounds mean.

    The x pipe really does help.

    Good review man. This will help me with my exhaust decision.
    You should post a sound clip here without the x pipe and with the x pipe. Good comparison.

    Yeah the x pipe makes it a little more quiet. Let us know if the kick is still there after a few hundred miles. Just curious. I had the x pipe built into mine up front, but I'm convinced it would have been a dog without it.

    I've never used plastidip on anything. Anytime I've blacked anything out, I take it off and paint it. But it seems a lot easier to dip. If you do just make sure you get enough coats on it.

    I would never plastidip my wheels though. If I didn't like them I'd sell and buy new ones.

    I'd it's not the stock cai with a stock paper filter, that probably only made your truck lose more low end tq. What CAI did you install?
