backfire achieved

ok i'm finally done fine tuning my exhaust note. it's crisp, clean, deep, sings, and only exhibits rasp from 2-3k rpm. there is zero, absolutely zero drone if you can believe that.

i got my custom section 1 pipe put in with 2 resonators to clean up the rasp. result is more power and an even better exhaust note. i need a gas mask though.

flames at :18

i'll make a better video under load at some point. probably on the dyno...

Can we buy this section one? Do you have headers and if so can the o2 sensors be relocated to this section? I was waiting on DKF and the spipe, bung race resonators.

you will be..... keep an eye on the underside by the outlets for burn marks.... you may need to line the area with some reflective foil or sumet... especially if its by the fuel tank... better safe than sorry.


OP, throw on a blower and watch those little stabs turn into fireworks!!

i can't get enough of this exhaust note! it sings. no rasp or drone which is mind boggling...i have no cats!

it's almost quieter than before but more refined with a crisper note. sounds fantastic driving around town...idle revs don't do it justice. i'm working on a video for you guys.
