Ok, so I got to ask, if no headers (assume they're coming?), then what would be the point of this exhaust if it's "quieter" than stock? Or does it flow better? I know the claim is 7 or 8 hp, but is it worth the hefty price tag?

Just askin', don't shoot me.

No problem, glad to answer, I thought this would be a simple bolt on and sound better...heck on the web site it sounded great, in cab it is quiter, no doubt about it. outside sounds about the same, little raspyer. The flow is much better than stock, 3 inch all the way back. But there are clearance issues that I am having the shop take care of, I am happy with it, but disapointed that it was not what I thought. Oh well....I will get it fixed and be tearing up the road...lol

I called Billy Boat because I had some questions as I was considering getting it but had the same concerns as you of why pay that kind of money if it isn't going to make it a noticeable difference louder. I was told that there are 2 sides of the muffler; one that is close to stock loudness but sounds more "muscley" and the other that is straight through but with dampening to create a good tone without drone which is much much louder than stock. He suggested getting the mild to wild switch installed at the same time so that you can control when open if you want. I asked if they had any data on the deicbel comparison between theirs and stock(since they have that data on their website for some of their other systsems); but he said they haven't done that yet.

So with it wide open would you say that there is a significant difference between it and the stock wide open? For example while revving it or while accelerating fast; can you hear a considerable difference?
