X Pipe installations North West

All, anyone recommend any company that can fit an x-pipe in the north west, preferably warrington/chester way?

also anyone recommend a custom or magnaflow/supersprint x pipe?

Thanks

Having followed jacko55 on a run in Wales, I can vouch for the glorious growl that emits from this set up!!

How much are we looking at for this? I'm afraid I need it sorting.

Jacko55. Can I come ovr and listen to it? Think that'd seal the deal.

full job including manufacture and fitting would be a maximum of 350 think he as still got the details of mine ring him to check and yes can meet up so you can have a listen most people just change out the resonator box and replace it with a X pipe still a great sound

Not that I'm going to do this, but what happens if you don't put an 'X' in and just put a straight pipe each side eliminating second cat and res box?

I'm sure AMG and MB know what they are doing, Its just a question I need answering.

It's to do with evening out the exhaust pressure between the two cylinder banks:

So reading that I would expect the position of the 'X' to be critical, yet people have moved it up flow while modding. Or is it OK as long as both pipes before are the same length.

I have no idea why I need to know this, thanks for accommodating my curiosity.
