does anyone have any idea of where I can get the "X" of an X-pipe. I'm plannig on doing exhaust work to my Z28 inthe spring and I was looking to put Flowmasters and an X-pipe on it. I heard that Flowtech and Headman makes then but I don't want to pay more money for almost the entire exhaust system
I got mine through "dr.gas", it was a kit ,3" pipe from collector back to X then 2.5 pipe a few inches back, to finish from. dont know if it comes seperate or just as kit. I think dyno-max makes an X pipe also.

I apreciate the help guys but the only thing I don't like about Dr. Gas is the prices. getting my exhaust system redone cost me less than the price for the just the Tandem piece. I was hoping to go cheaper than $100 if possible
I made my own out of two mandrel U-bend pipes I bought from Summit Racing(or Jeg's, can't remember which one). They were about $17 each. I cut the backside out of each bend and welded the two together. You could actually get away with buying just one bend and cutting it in half. I was too cheap to pay for the ready made kit.
Last year, Dr Gas was the only game in town. Now guys are telling me they're getting them from Jegs/Summit.
If you do it yourself, the cutouts that are welded are elliptical, not round. Dr. Gas welds a square plate on as well for strength.
Also, Dr. Gas recommended going with the same dia headpipe as your header collector. Mine were 3.5" and EVERYONE said I would lose low end. Didn't happen. So most of us would want to run the 3" inlet Xpipe ( off 3" headpipes) with a 2.5" outlet. This is the best setup for anything approaching 400-450HP.
