Looks like lot of people are getting bit by the mod bug, from simple to full blown. Thats good as most have different ideas and we can all learn something. Sometimes its the easy mods that we can increase the most performance out of.

Have you noticed an increase of flow from your muffler bearing?

Kinda hard to tell what we're looking at - did you ream away a ridge in there that partly restricts exhaust flow?

^Top of the class!

(@BBRMotorsports knows what I did there too)

20 mins with a die grinder and a half round file to reap the rewards of better response at high rpm and still have all the benefits of a std header.
