The X-pipe is the middle section between the muffler and the catalytic converter.
The two most common types of a midpipe are an X-Pipe and an H-Pipe. The H type pipe simply makes a shape of an H and connects two exhaust pipes with a help of smaller pipe in between them. The X-pipe differentiates itself from being shaped in the form of and X where both exhaust streams merge momentarily before being separated again.
X-Pipes will have a higher exhaust note and generate more power in the high RPM range, while the H Pipe will result in generally a more deeper sound and additionally generate extra torque in the lower RPM range, while
Some vehicles only support a Y-pipe, which isn't favorable to achieve maximum horsepower, so converting to a dual set up is ideal. The increased airflow from upgrading to an X or H setup gives you much more room to accommodate increases in horsepower and torque, relieving excessive back-pressure.
