Drop your entire exhaust and see the power sky rocket......you just won't have much torque below 2500 rpm......and you'll need ear plugs.
So true. I had PEM'* and 3" striaght through from the manifold to the stock muffler (only a 3" HF resonator, no cat) and in the top end I felt much more power.
Yesterday I put my 3" HF Magnaflow cat back in and I gained a noticable amount back in the low-mid ranges, but up top, the more I take it there, the more I feel I've lost just by putting the cat back in.
I think it'* time for a cable operated cutout (closed for the launch, and then around 30mph yank it open and unleash the fury), after I get my fueling and tuning done.
I can only imagine what headers and Stage II or III cam would be like in a Series I.
