I bought one months ago, and it's still sitting in the box in my garage. I can't decide if I should put it on.

If someone could tell me that I'm going to gain an honest 5rwhp, then I'll do it.

Just wondering..... My friends 01coupe saw some gain on the dyno.

I hear it quiets things down in the exhaust department. Not sure I want to give that up for a few ponies.

So, any feed back would be nice.

2001 Z06 Quick Silver Stock dyno 346rwhp 342rwhp.
Mods- Halltech Tric, Halltech Mag(cobra),racers wedge air filter,TB by-pass,ported and polished TB
Misc mods-V1 with remote,black and red stratmosphere Z06 floor mats,momo f-16 shift knob,tint,clear euro tail lights,etc.
Future mods- HRE 547's 18x9.5 fronts 19x11 rears,B&M ripper or Hurst shifter, Lowering approx .75in, Baer racing two-piece rotors,etc.
I have an xpipe and prefer the sound of the PRT's without it. If it gave me any additional hp I cannot feel it. It changes the overall tone of the PRT's and gets rid of some of the popping on decel. I like having the popping removed but do not care for the overall tone as well . On a previous C5 I had Corsa's and the addition of the xpipe made them sound better IMHO. I would suggest listening to the exhaust of your choice with and without the xpipe before making your decision.

I was thinking about an X pipe until I heard what it does to the PRT's. It totally eliminates the sound that I love so much. Obviously, there is not one in my future.
