2nd one, like the Lawson, are not real X pipes, they have the shape of an X from the outside, but it won't scavenge exhaust gases like an X pipe because the path doesn't cross inside. You're basically paying for a straight/little bent small POS pipe.

Magnaflow, Dr Gas, Bassani sell real X pipes, with Magnaflow being the cheapest, Dr Gas being the most expensive because of the way the pipe is shaped inside. Granted, none of them are $20.

I have a 2.5" Xpipe just like the 2nd one from eBay you linked to. I think mine was $30. The one I have is a real Xpipe. It might not be as elongated, but the basic principle of an Xpipe does exist and it functions great. There are hundreds of members who have this Xpipe.

Cheap is good :), just make sure it's a real x pipe.
This is the Lawson one, fully hollowed inside, this is not a real X, which looks to be the same as the one in the 2nd link the op posted, (looking at one the pics from the ebay 2nd link)

Damn wish I would have see this thread sooner. Just ordered the Lawson one. That's not an x at all, just some widened tubing

If that's not the design of a "real x pipe".... Do u mind posting a pic of what would be so others can see the difference.

Sure, this is the Dr Gas X pipe, this one cost around $119, the $90 Magnaflows are similar, Spintech also make a true x pipe crossover, almost like Dr Gas, can't remember their price, but they're not as cheap as this hollowed pieces like Lawson or ebay bended pipe alike.

Magnaflow X. Less interior volume than the Lawson. All will get the job done.

I also bought the Lawson one, a 2.5" one. Im not sure about the scavenging properties of it but it sure made the car sound better and got rid of most of the drone at 60mph.

I have the clamshell Magnaflow style in 2.25" everyone agrees that it sounds pretty much amazing.
