Default exhaust H PIPE

found some info

Should I use an "H" or Balance pipe?
An "H" pipe, commonly referred to as an equalizer, balance or crossover pipe, connects the two exhaust pipes. It will balance the pressure of the exhaust pulses in the system, thereby reducing interior and exterior sound while increasing power. In general the "H" pipe should be installed as close as possible to the header collector. With manifolds, the "H" pipe should be laced just past where the downpipes become horizontal. "H" pipes should be the same diameter as the main pipes or no-more than 1/2" smaller.

I did'nt know the optimun location should be as close to the engine
I've seen some far back

Tailpipes and Power:

Tailpipes aid in keeping atmospheric pressure from rushing back into the muffler. Tailpipes can improve performance and control sound. In addition, tailpipe length can affect the power as well as sound. Tailpipes should be a minimum or 10", and not longer than 6' Tailpipe length of more than 6' may need a resonator.

Suggested Pipe Sizes for Street Performance:

The size of pipe used in an exhaust system is a critical item to consider. Pipe diameter will affect the sound level and performance characteristics of the muffler, but keep in mind that bigger is not always better. Too large of a pipe can actually hinder exhaust scavenging by allowing atmospheric pressure up the pipe. As a rule, most general street applications use 2.00" through 2.50" pipe, while modified street applications will generally use 2.50" or 3.00" pipe.

For Those Who Fought For It...
