the wonderful sound!!!!!

If I lost HP I would be pissed, but if weight and HP and Torque were exactly the same, the sound would be worth it alone!

(If they just looked better!) Although I just came up with an idea to put 2 two-inchers on each side. That might look stupid though.

: : < I installed a supertrapp on my mazda rx7 spec racer to make it streetable and pass the 95 dB limit at the local autox. I went to Off Road Wharehouse in San Diego which had a selection of sizes (diameters) at much lower prices than motocycle shops and some car specialty shops. I got the 3 1/2 in dia. for a 2 in exhaust for $40. An additional disk pack was $19. I kept adding disks until I got to 95 dB. Shop around, good deals are available, these are popular with the off road crowd.>

: has anyone seen / gotten actual dyno results? I'm curious if there is an actual Hp gain, and if so is there a Torque fall off? If hp and torque and identical to OEM, you would still have a weight savings gain to increase the power to weight ratio.
