You can fit a true dual 2 1/2" system above the X-brace IF you dont use a crossover (X or H). If you use a crossover, you need to shim the brace downward to make room so that the crossover won't hit the driveshaft.

I used a Flowmaster American Thunder without the X pipe. But I'm wondering is there a real advantage of the X pipe? I have been thinking of revising it but if their isnt a real high gain I wont get into that. What I mean is if the gain out weighs the hassel I would do it but if the gain is marginal I will forget about it.

The Flowmaster American Thunder system is a good product for a vert. Just make sure that you take it to a good shop for installation and tell them that you want it to fit with the x-brace if at all possable. That is if you want to keep the x-brace on.
It is a very tight fit to get the pipes in-between the x-brace and the bottom of the car. Most people have had to shim the x-brace or just take it out, but I have seen the same exhaust installed without shimming the x-brace.

Any pictures of dual exhaust installed on a 1st gen convertible?
I would really like to see what it looks like from underneath the car and down low from behind the car as well. (either with or without x-brace)
How loud are the American Thunders compared to other systems out there?

I was late reading your email requesting pictures.
You can see pictures of the best install I have seen on a vert by going to the URL below.
