Nice find indeed! I like the hitch too. I do a lot of biking and may actually buy this thing. Appears to be on sale as well.

I have two questions:

1. Starting around :23 into the video when the engine comes down from a rev. What causes that fluttering sound and can that be eliminated? It would be nice if the sound decayed smoothly.

2. Tell me more about the horn mod at 1:56 in the video.

Thanks,

Tom

I am glad to help out and that you all enjoyed the video. I have got a ton of compliments on the way it sounds today. I am too used to the quiet sound of the stock exhaust though I think. I love the way it sounds as deep as it is. The only thing I don't care for personally is the cabin noise. Its a bit too loud for my taste's. I'm not 100% yet but I am leaning toward the idea of purchasing an 18" long vibrant straight through resonator to install to take some of the noise down to lessen the cabin noise.

I am not sure about the whistle you mention I have tried to listen for it. I was thinking it was just the CAI but maybe I am wrong.

Thanks,
1.I noticed this also and I researched around to find out possible causes. There possibly could be a leak in the welds which I checked and listened too over and over so I am sure this is not the case.I read after a new install the sound possibly goes away in a few days. I also read that having no resonator in some systems helps produces this in some cases. Ill have to wait and see I am hoping it just goes away.
2. As for the horn it was just some random truck that was driving by on the main road lol. I edited alot out in the videos, and I liked that too so I left it in there.

The mufflers were $89 each which I purchased from Wicked Nicky's Exhaust and then $100 for installation, piping and taking out resonator.

That's too bad. It would be a sweet horn on our cars. I used to have air horns on my previous car, but the compressor went out after a few years. Luckily I had both the regular horns and air horns hooked up, so it just fell back to the regular horn.

This what I did two days ago, I think it sounds good both in the cabin and outside.. Not to loud but loud enough to get some attention..

I think it would look pretty sick if done the right way. It would definitely be a first. I am pretty sure a shop would work with you to make the idea happen.

I would be interested to see how that looks. I think it would be pretty cool
