What were the resulting gains from the re-worked exhaust?

Are the tail pipes just standard aluminized steel tube that you used? Also is that the off the shelf Pypes Universal X pipe kit? Really like the idea of this setup. I am leaning towards using MRT mufflers but otherwise this seems like a very economical way to have a solid custom exhaust.

The system is just Pypes 18" collector extenders and off the shelf "narrow tunnel" X-pipe kit. The tails are just aluminized steel and will probably only last 15-20 years. I gained a lot below 3,000 and at 2,000 it was over 30 RWHP/RWTQ
