Carbed LS , true duals vs x pipe ?

Hey guys , so my carbed , cam, lq4 has a pypes 3in system with an x-pype. I want to race the car so I have a bmr driveshaft loop for it . The problem is I can't see any good way to use the loop and utilize the x-pipe so I'm considering deleting the x and going straight to true duals . Will I notice any I'll effects or a different tone ? Thanks for any input .

Yes it will sound different and probably a lil louder.

NO x

X added

I posted those two videos. Not carbed, but still an LS. The X pops less on decel, they were both about the same volume, but I did increase the pipe size going to the X setup, so that probably had some effect on it.

Bunch of other videos of before and after to give you an idea.

I run a 3.5" Dr Gas X pipe and a loop bolted directly to the trans mount on the crossmember. No issue. I would have, however, had flanges welded in behind the X next time, so it can be dropped to service the trans.
