i can't really tell the difference in the sound from before and after, but like i said before "it sounds sweet".
Can you feel the gains because it looks like you are a little faster.

seems to rev faster, noticeable sound - it can be very loud and obnoxious when i get on it. gtech shows 17 more ponies. and i feel quite a difference.

just gotta scan my pcm - have a cel, its most likly from the missing cats... my mil eliminators should have taken care of that tho......

Sounds sweet. Better hope no mods come to this thread or it will be locked. How many HP does the G-Tech show? You said 17 more but what is the total?

after driving a bit with the true duals i love it. the sound seems to have gotten a bit quieter as the pipes got some exhaust on them, and its not too loud cruising around. unless that is the secondaries are open.

its nice to have an exhaust with a nice growl at idle and all out madness at high rpms.

we'll see what it does for mpg after i run this tank thru. i was only getting 275-325 km /tank... im expecting much better.

well the mileage hasnt improved any but look at our weather latley....

just as a note if you want to watch the vids watch em soon. the links should be dead by tonight.

i do like the duals, if you read my bad servixe thread you'll see i wont be recommending the shop that did it for me, but it does sound pretty mean and power is up. now its time for a custom chip.

damn mod itch
