Repost: Exhaust popping

I know we already had a post on this already but I just had the two rear mufflers chopped and had straight pipes installed the only thing that bugs the heck outta me is the louder popping, I think I read in the older post and I think others said that a X pipe eliminated the popping I'm not sure, anyone???

On top of that when they got the goat on the lift I noticed some deep scratches on her, and on the way home I get rear-ended by a chick in a 300c what a day huh?... off to call the body shop and pay a $500 deductable to Insurance there goes the Auto X grilles and the Lingenfelter CAI money

DAYM CHICK IN YER 300C

If she hit you from behind, it is her fault. You don't need to pay a deductible at all. She pays her deductible and turns it into her insurance company. They get you a rental and pay for your car to be fixed.

If she hit you, then just contact her insurance company directly. You don't even have to deal with her. It will be on her liability insurance, which won't even cost her a deductible. If the repair is over $1000, then her rates will go up, however. Don't sacrifice and miss out on the LCAI. It is good.

Also, I recommend when you get it fixed if you can work it in to consider painting the rear letters "GTO" in red. I like the look of mine and get compliments.

I have the Magnaflow true X exhaust on mine and cut the mufflers from this system and went with 6" straight through bullet type mufflers. Very close to a straight pipe. Sounds really good and the popping is minimal - a little more than when it was stock, but not bad.

Not sure if an x pipe will eliminate it
Mine got worse after the headers and x pipe.
I read a post somewhere that the popping had something to do with the grind of the stock cam....but dont take that as gospel.
