I was wondering if any one tired remove the cross over pipe on exaust after they debaffled pipes.If so did it sound better.Aftermarket pipes don't have a cross over(I should say balance pipe) on them and they sound good.I just like the factory pipe looks and trying to get better sound out of them.If no one has done it maybe I will just have to try it and see.

Without backpressure there is little application/use for a crossover. With a restricted exhaust the crossover does balance the exhaust pulses between the two pipes which creates a more uniform back pressure against cylinder scavaging when the exhaust valves open. Once restrictions are releaved the exhaust is free flowing so there is relatively no pressure to balance. I suspect that there will be little to no difference between the exhaust sound with or without the balance pipe.
