stacks round or square box?

Ok guys i know there is alot of threads about stacks here but got a few questions for you all. I am thinking of going with a square crossover instead of the round pipe. What are your thoughts on this? If anyone has done this could i see some pics and info???Thanks in advance

your talking about the bed piping right? it would work just fine, but IMO it doesnt look good. i believe round tube looks nicer. if you are going to run a tool box and hide it then its ok

i think the reason they say they sound better is because the exhaust bounces around in a square box and makes in echo more where as round tube is just a smooth flow

here ya go






It was made out of 4x8 tubing and with a straight pipe it was not loud at all. That big box acted like a muffler.
