What works best with LT Headers?

What type of pipes work best with BBK's Longtube Headers, their shorty O/R H-Pipe or perhaps a short X-Pipe or a Bassani X cut to fit?
What type of gains am I looking at over one choice over the other?
Anybody have any idea? I want to go for the H-Pipe's sound, but if the hp and tq curves are better with the X-Pipe I will go with those.

Cool

Well bud I just got back from Lone Star Performance here in Dallas, they installed a Star SPEC stage 2 clutch kit/aluminum flywheel and my BBK LT's and catted shorty H-pipe that I got from a GP here on the corral!

One word.......... AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sound is so much better than stock, I could not believe the sound improvement! I will try and get some sound clips when I get a chance, plus a dyno! I'm so giddy with joy!

I hear the X-pipe is probably better for sound, i'm not really sure, but I might get one sometime down the road along with a Magnapack cat-back system, for the ultimate!

Later.......

I'm running BBK and a VRS O/R X pipe for 2 reason's.

1. The VRS bolts right in, I did not want to mess with cutting my old bassani.

2. Everyone and their brother has a mustang with O/R H and FLOWs.

In my opinion the X and straight threw mufflers sound a hella lot better, and do not drone as much.

The other day I raced a paper plated Porsche 911 carrera and the owner told me my car sounded "Btchen"

When I had my '97 Cobra it had BBK longtubes, VRS catted X-pipe, and Borlas. Click on my sig and go to the Sound Room to hear it. It sounds pretty damn good! I will be installing a similar setup in my '01 Cobra soon!

No, I was born last week. It's been rough at work lately. I'm NOT myself (my wife claims I just some a-hole who looks like me, but WTF does SHE know). Besides, I didn't know there would be any math on this test.
