X-pipe install pics

for those that have this mod done already is it possible if one of u could post some pics of the install?? we got great photos of a C350 to C63 exhaust install, now just looking for the x-pipe install. to be honest, i more or less want, so its easier for me to explain, how and what i want, being that im over in germany. and u no a picture is worth a thousand words.

Your car isn't raspy as hell with straight pipes? I know it's a 350 but my car was horrendous with straight pipes, that's why I promptly got the X pipe.

does it affect emissions/mileage?

yeah, i heard your sound. It sound very very much like it. BUT! i feel like it got a little kick to it now. got a little more pick up. Not much, but feels like it. maybe it's psychological?

Nice, so I take it from the pictures the pipe you bought fit right in place? Enough length, proper width, etc?

The description says "The result is a significant increase in power and torque." Have you noticed any?

Yes, It fits good. The shop guy only needed to adjust the front end a little to make it fit.
Center to Center of Pipes: 5"
Overall Length: 18.5"

I think for a perfect fit. The center to center of pipe could be 4.5".
But, maybe each car is different slightly. I think as long as it's in between 4.5 to 5". It will be ok.

Racetested reposted the link to the shop I bought it from. You can order it online. They actually make to order. you order, they make and ship out the same day. What I got is the standard size, if you want the width to be a bit smaller, you should call in to request it and they will most likely do it for you.

Here is a picture of our STOCK resonator. As you can see, it is not restricted at all. I think the description is for cars with restrictive resonator. BUT, i do feel a little difference. A LITTLE. It could be psychological..... mental thing? i am not sure.
