    X-Cans or DDM tuned pipe

    I was wondering what would be the pros and cons of each. I like the look of the X-Can w 6in stingers. I just can't see how the X-can would be a better pipe overall than the DDM. Any thoughts on this?

    If you don't like loud stay away from a Dom!

    RE: X-Cans or DDM tuned pipe

    the X-can is really not a great purchase. they are super loud(louder then a dom) and only add a small amount of low end torque. the longer stingers also rob some of the power and constantly vibrate loose. i removed the stingers to get more power and it is now so loud i dont like to drive it. i have 2 side dom pipes on other rigs and they are so amazing it is almost hard to explain. more torque, more noticable power band and higher revs with such a sweet sound. also, that little bit of "muscle" sticking out the side/back simply means respect. a ddm pipe is worth every penny.
    ok then.......?

    RE: X-Cans or DDM tuned pipe

    Does the side dom provide more power than the rear dom, or are they about the same?

    the rear DOM is loud for sure!
    I think the side DOM is a better pipe

    RE: X-Cans or DDM tuned pipe

    The side and rear doms are the most consistent performers with engines of all sizes, they make a big difference to power and noise. However, the X-cans shouldn't be underestimated. I'm constantly astounded what a big difference they make for their simple design. They are both loud, the only truly quiet baja pipe is the Mielke.

    Problem with the side pipes is they get in the way of the body. Right?

    For me I don't care how good a side pipe is I think it totally ruins the look of the baja[]

    They can be especially if your shell is an MT shell. But for buggies, side exhaust pipes will simply sit on the outside of the shell in most cases.

    RE: X-Cans or DDM tuned pipe

    the side dom is ruthless- and its volumes quieter than the rear. i think the dyno's showed the side makes a bit more power and holds it a bit longer than the rear. it doesnt give anything up on the low end from what i could tell.

    The side dom, yes, does cause quite a few issues with 'access'. The Mielke side pipe does not, which leads me to.... Frumpy! Come on man, side pipes ruin the Baja? You sure?




    That is the Mielke on my ex car by the way. I often wonder how this car's doing these days. Sure was a looker.
