    Question White pipe on 96xp?

    I bought a few parts off of what a guy swears is a 96xp, the strange part about it is that the exhaust pipe is white, he claims its a high performance exhaust. My 96xp has a purple pipe starting after the collector. Any ideas?

    I think the only year for white was 97 for the XP. Now 96 and 97 GSX's, and GTX's were white too. Same exact pipe. In 98 and 99 they were silver.

    Is there any performance increase with the 97 pipe over the 96? They look pretty much the same from what I can remember.

    The white pipe makes about 10 more HP.

    Just here to learn man, no need to poke fun. I only asked based on the fact that this is the case with the 951.

    He was just having fun. Don't take any offense...we reserve the right to get a chuckle every now and then.

    If you want gains you need to buy a Factory Pipe SpecII.

    Doesn't that difference have to do with the flat spot on the black pipe?

    If you want a purple XP pipe I have one
