Silencer Mod

I just did the silencer mod this morning, and cant really tell the difference at all. Its not even louder. I cut it off with a hack saw and duct taped it off at the new hole. Something I'm missing here? Thanks

I did the same thing minus the duct-tape and there really is not much of a difference in sound for me either.

Use it or lose it!

I've never noticed much of a sound increase w/ my "hack", but that isn't why I did it. The resonator section you cut off is obviously a great hamper to flow. There is an outfit that will be making an oe like piece (ABS) that will consist of the elbow portion only, no resonator section. Hopefully priced reasonable ~ $30.

This will make the oe intake flow a little better- no big increases in performance, but some I'm sure.
