<FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">...YEESSS a lot of nice noise... BUT , You will loose a few horsepower without mufflers at all ! If you are running a mild cam/ stock engine setup, the noise will make you think the engine runs fine. But with quality mufflers , the low to mid rpm horsepower will increase... and the engine respond quicker. <IMG src=smileys/smiley14.gif border="0"></FONT>

all the noise does is give you somkind of mental rush into think you have more power to a point....my point look at all the fart cans out there..and most people are under the infleuance is it's loud it must be fast(er)

Torque is what you lose not HP. Torque gives you the snap into the seat when you mash it not HP. No mufflers will help at high RPMS but hinder you at low RPMS.

And the 'torque' loss in minimal, well worth the loss if you want her to go faster at the track. <IMG src=smileys/smiley2.gif border="0">

Right.... people always harp about losing "low end torque". Who the hell lanches at low RPM anyways. Who cares if a little "low end torque" is lost.

...Well thats of caurse a strip thing. If you lanch at 3000rpms at the street under normal road conditions, even a mid to slow car will outrace U, because U are spinning. If U are spinning, U are slow... <IMG src=smileys/smiley1.gif border="0">
