Here is a good site that spells it out in plain English...

I think the H-pipe sounds much better than an X-pipe. IMHO an X-pipe tends to create a note that is hollow and tinny.

Neil don't hold me to this.. but i think one makes power at the high end and the other makes power at the low end...i run x pipes on 2 of my mustangs my 1992 GT and my 2008 GT....on my 1992 GT i had an h pipe and switched to the x pipe and it changed the whole sound of the car...same thing happen with the 2008 GT..but it really woke the 2008 GT up but i also have a custom tune.....so i,m hooked on this x pipe thing.....i think my 68 CS is going to sound nice with the x pipe and the 2.5 piping

All of the round inserts are Scott Drake, or just the running horse one in the centre?

I bought a pre made exhaust kit too. I brought it somewhere to get it installed and ended up spending more than if I would've just brought it to the muffler shop. It just didn't fit correctly. The problem for me was I have an AOD transmission and not the C-4 Lesson #2 learned. Lesson #1 was the suspension bushings.
