Oh, and, jump on the CRAZY deal ASAPl!

Make sure you spend the extra for the 5" doubled walled tips. Well worth the investment.

Yes, muffler location definitely does affect it. The closure the muffler is to the engine the quieter the truck will be. The further back it is, the louder.

Here's some information you may find usefull -

H Pipe:

An H pipe helps equalize the exhaust pressures between the two banks of tubing as the hot gases and sound waves travel down the tubing. This, in effect, relieves the exhaust pressures as they travel through the H tubing, generally creating an increase in torque. This will also give an added sound reduction when the sound waves combine inside the H tubing.

X Pipe:

An X pipe will actually help to scavenge exhaust pulses from one bank as the opposite exhaust pulse passes through the X, thus creating a vacuum effect at the valve, resulting in a cleaner burn in the cylinder. This generally equals added torque and, like the H pipe, a reduction in sound as the sound waves combine in the X pipe.

Y Pipe:

The Y pipe, which works well on several applications, utilizes a dual exhaust off the manifolds/ headers and runs back a specified distance, then the two pipes enter the Y pipe and become one larger pipe. This Y helps each bank to scavenge the other as the pulses travel down through the Y and are joined together into the single common tubing. This creates a vacuum in the exhaust valve, resulting in a cleaner burn in the cylinder. A sound reduction is also achieved as the sound waves combine in the Y pipe.

Personally, I've had both in the past and the biggest difference I've found between H & X pipe is predominantly sound. As long as all things are equal, there's no significant difference in performance between the two.
This! ^^ Definitely a good post explaining the differences between the different connection pipes.

Thanks guys I'm running the X pipe next to the engine and the mufflers right before the rear axel.. So I guess X pipe is the best decision.... I just don't know if it will be worth spending the 700 or spending half to do a single muffler setup and using the Extra cash for a intake. Hmmmmm decisions

Default Same Exact Decision

Raminator, I am trying to make the exact same decision as you at this very moment. I have the money set up for a CAI and the 1 Borla XR-1 Sportsman setup with the Y pipe, similar to Craigsredram. My install guy says we could do 2 XR-1s and an X pipe but he wasn't really clear on what my results would be.

He wants me to provide the Borla XR-1s and he would supply the piping. That said, he'll do the piping, provide the x pipe and install for $400.

If it were me, I'd base my decision on planned future mods. Are you planning on going crazy and upgrading cam, fuel system, headers, supercharger, etc? True dual probably makes the most sense.
But if you're just going basic exhaust, CAI, tuner, then the single would be my choice.

Just gears lift intake exhaust and tune. Maybe headers and a tb but that's it
