What X PIPE will fit the BBK longtubes?

I want some longtubes and I think I am gonna get the BBK. The hooker ones are great and all, but they are 130 dollars more. The BBK ceramics are only 500. They only sell matching H pipes though, and I want a matching shorty X. Who has one that will fit PERFECTLY with no problems for a GOOD price?

VRS exhaust sells an x-pipe specifically made for the BBK longtube headers. I helped them prototype the x-pipe and I believe a few people on here have 'em.

the website doesn't show shorty xpipes from what I can see. They show x pipes for 160 bucks but that has to be full length.


What other options do I have? Dr. Gas, etc....???

their prices on the shorty X pipes are the same as the prices on full size ones. Same with Dr. Gas. They make the short X pipe for the BBK longtubes, but its still $299. If you are gonna order from either of them, call over the phone and tell them what you need. They should take care of you.

Good Luck

the dr gas x pipe needs to be welded to theheaders it's not a direct fit.Vrs sells a direct bolt on i think thats all.

Yeah, I should have mentioned that they don't list the x-pipe on the website. Believe me, they sell it. Also, there is NO reason to get the Dr. Gas over the VRS. They both have the exact same type of x-crossover and overall design, but like y2k mentioned you'll have to spend more money on the Dr. Gas because it comes in pieces so you have to get it welded. BS if you ask me. Just get the VRS.

you can get em at shm and ceramic coated for about 650 bucks. BBK coated are $500. The hookers are supposed to allow more clearence which you don't have with the BBK's.

If you are interested, I have the BBK longtubes and Dr. Gas offroad x-pipe. I paid $200 for the "universal kit" and had it fab'd up with the longtubes for another $50 so it is still cheaper than the vrs pipe. Hope this helps.

Later,
Brad
