Default advantage of adding a x-pipe?

I'm thinking about getting a corsa system and I know that they (most aftermarket exhaust) make a popping/crackling sound when you decelerate. Will adding their x-pipe take care of this?

No it won't. You don't like the popping/crackling sound?

I have (had) Corsa Sports with their X-Pipe on my '05 MN6. The X-pipe serves to smooth the exhaust flow & does cancel the high end exhaust notes. I wrote "had" since I've recently installed AR headers and high flow cats/x-pipe. Now it's really "snap, crackle & pop"! Too bad you're not closer.....I've got the Corsa X-pipe sitting in my garage & would love to find a home for it, but it's too bulky to ship to Texas.

Yea, I've got the AR headers with x-pipe, but no cats, then BB bullets.

Default Popping exhaust

I run LG Pro LT's with X-pipe, hi-flow cats and Corsa Sport and the X-pipe does "smoothe" out the percolating somewhat, but the Corsa Sport technology makes it rumble more in deceleration like the old glass packs used to sound.
