Does anyone know how much performance is lost, if any due to the flattened/crushed crossover exhaust pipe that runs from the left bank to the right side of the exhaust between the transmission and engine. Both, the dealer and independent shops, have told me the flattended pipe is made that way. This is on a 00 Escalade.
Thanks

Camaros of the same year had a similiar configuration. When they were replaced with no flattened pipes there was no dyno gain. It wasnt until most of the rear exhaust was replaced that the free up any horsepower. I wouls change that pipe if you were doing headers but not as a standalone upgrade.
I had a 97 and 2000 SS camaro and found the most gains with the cat upgrades and the rear of the exhaust.

DBRISON, thanks for the reply. It's an 00 Escalade, not 02. Got my car mixed up with it. It has 73K on it and I will probably need a cat back system pretty soon.
