fr500 exhaust????

just about everyday i do run a few miles (just to stay in shape) but when i go run this is when i do most of my thinking....well i was thinking of the fr500 and remembered how different the exhaust set up on that car was... The car's set up has the two usual mufflers but with no crossover (no h-pipe or x-pipe) before the mufflers BUT... it does has a x-pipe after the muffler towards the rear and from there you have the tail pipes....keeping that in mind....is there any real benefit for doing this??? would this be a good idea on our cars??? i drew some pics as to how the fr500 has it (pic A) and how it would look in our cars (pic B)

A crossover that far away from the engine MIGHT change the tone of the exhaust slightly, but I doubt you would see ANY performance gain at all.

Why not just use the mid-mount magnaflow DIDO with the xpipe built in? That seems like the simplest solution to me.

Same answer as in my first post. The crossover should be relatively close to the engine if you are looking for any power gains. The Magnaflow muffler with a Tru-X core mounted in the stock third cat/resonator location seems to work well.
