Default New Dual Aero Turbines

I have a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport with 27K. I have a Vararam Intake , 87MM TB, Power Spacer, and 91 Tune. I previously had a Flowmaster 40 single in dual out connected to the stock tailpipes and resonators. I liked the sound but wanted more. I went on U-Tube and Found a video of another Ram a 2013 that installed Aero Turbines without the resonators and was hooked. I immediately ordered AT 3030 Aero Turbines with matching tips This post will be picture heavy but it will show the before and after. For those of you who are skeptical about changing your exhaust system please don't be. I can tell you from experience that the sound and performance difference is amazing. I put on a crossover pipe and dual Aero Turbines with matching tips. I changed the tailpipe diameter from stock 2 1/4 inch to 2.5 inches. B&M Exhaust in Phoenix Az did the install and did an outstanding job!! It is featured on their website with video. Enjoy the pictures. . Click the link below....shared One drive pics!!!

Nice job, but why oh why would you waste your money on a crossover (X) pipe. You absolutely didn't need one. All it does is make your truck quieter. You should never use an X pipe. There is no benefit to your exhaust flow or performance.
I run a true dual setup NO X or H pipe when I ran my Aero Turbines, plus I used the AT2525 Aero's, they are louder than the XL's. However if your happy and it seems you are, then enjoy.

X Pipe is required for proper exhaust scavenging,
The pulses from one bank create a vacuum aiding to pull the exhaust pulses from the opposing bank in an alternating frequency.

It's not new, its not rocket science and it has been proven. (not opinion)

Louder does not equal faster.
I dust peeps with my sleeper everytime some loser at the lights
decides he's a boss by wrapping his loud exhaust at the stop lights.

Looks awesome, install looks pretty good too. Wouldn't listen to the guy above, crossover pipes do have a purpose, and generally show decent horsepower gains. H pipes give a little more on the low end and have a deeper sound. X pipes show more high rpm gain, with a raspier, more exotic sound. I know this first hand from running multiple setups with h,x, and a prochamber on a mustang gt I had years ago. Need to post some sound clips.

It just doesn't get much simpler than this...

Thanks for the comments. I didn't use the XL (resonated) 3030's. I used the AT 3030's and left my resonators off. The cold startup this morning for departure for work was to say the least smile rated.... I bet my neighbors loved it...lol.

I love the sound for sure. It's the first time I drove the 17 miles to work without the radio on just to listen. I have MDS turned off and my APP percentages tweeked to give it a little firmer shift along with the 91 tune. There is no drone...just deep sound. Sorry, but sound clips I can't do right now due to working 12-hour shifts.

Wow. We learn something new everyday.

I had no idea an X pipe worked like that. Thanks for the explanation, BlackRamHemi.

Looks like a pretty sweet setup! Glad I read this! I've been thinking of different exhuast setups that I could do, never really gave much thought about doing an X or H, it's good info to know! Thanks for the post.

Those video's prove absolutely nothing. They are B.S. your Hemi powered truck does NOT need an X or H pipe. Most race engines such as drag cars do not run any of these. I would never ever run a retarded X or H pipe on any vehicle. However if you believe those vid's and want to waste your money, go ahead. Myself and my engineering friend have been building exhaust systems for motorcycles for years, with thousand's of dyno runs, we know exhausts period. Enough said.

Motorcycles are completely different than trucks.

I myself have a system like yours with NO crossover at all. Don't get me wrong I love the sound, and I make alot power (not as much as BRH though), but I know there is more to be had if I had a crossover. When I had the exhaust first built I wasn't so much worried about power as I was sound and how it looked. The shop delivered on both ends of what I wanted. I WILL be adding a crossover in the future though.
