    I used to think this too, but they do not. Maybe the construction or quality of the materials affects the sounds, but idk if I could I would try them all out and post them on here but I do not have that kind of money haha. I've seen a couple videos on YouTube of different brands and there are some actual differences lol.

    Aluminized steel is going to sound a bit different than stainless. I don't think the designs are different at all.

    The connecting tube for some of them are in different places. Check out the Roush and Mishimoto H-pipes.

    Good point. It appears that the Roush H-pipe has the connecting pipe further back than the Steeda.

    If made correctly, they will sound the exact same if made out of the same material. There’s no special tech involved here, it’s connecting tubes.

    Personally, I've always bought the inexpensive universal H-Pipes as the H-Pipe comes as 2 pieces instead of 1 piece, allowing you to see inside of the entire H-Pipe before it gets welded together and installed on your vehicle.

    The non-universal “brand name” H-Pipes come as one piece, so you have no idea if the crossover section of the H-Pipe looks like the image below. Plus, a universal H-Pipe is $40 verses $200-$400 for the "brand name" 1 piece H-Pipe.

    Steeda's is $127 and with their black Friday it was $103.

    For that price I'm good buying name brand and supporting a vendor.

    I didn't find it difficult to inspect the inside of my Steeda H-pipe using a mirror similar to the kind dentists use. The quality was excellent as was the exterior welds. It was NOTHING like the Godawful mess in the picture in post #21.

    I had the steeda one put on this week. It sounds hardcore. Shop was impressed with the quality. I can’t see spending several hundred bucks when this one is around 100.

    You had Steeda’s H-pipe or X-pipe installed?
