It will probably make it louder, not sure on the quality of the note though, may end up raspy and drony though as the rear resonator is pretty small on X Force.

I have a stock cam l76 wagon. Has pacemacker 4 into 1 00 cell cats. Twin 3 inch x force system that has been turned into a bitsa. Has magnaflow resonators that have replaced x force resenators, have j pipes on the rear with resonators. It sounds good high rpm and low rpm but is too dull and smooth around 1500-2500 rpm. Would replacing the x merge pipe with a h pipe make a better note?

You seem like the most informed on exhausts here so i thought id ask you. I want a deeper more chopped out note if that makes sense.

That would be the ideal setup if it is "dull and smooth" between 1500-2500rpm. That's where you do most of your driving so you don't want it loud and drony around there. IMO, don't touch it.

To answer the X pipe question, it will change the note, make it more refined, possibly louder.

I had a H pipe fitted where the x force x pipe was. Wow what a difference. Has a angry bark to it now really deep. Sounds awesome. Almost like a merc amg 63 or something.
