No, ARH has told me from the get go that with the amount of HP I'm making I need ot neck down my exhaust to get the best performance out of it. 3" all the way back flows a little to well. So yeah, back pressure and scavenging.

So, I got another set of axlebacks from Tom to try out.

I'm getting a Dyno set up to check and see if there is a noticeable difference.

ARH says it won't be much, but it will allow the whole exhaust to perform better.

And you are one of those pretty damn cool people...

One of my favorite posts here is your video of the takeoff and flyby. If that doesn't make you feel alive...

Plus all the Orange pics at THR are just too funny.

Thanks Bruce for all the advice along the way.

Oh and the catch can works.

Son and I will probably be there ... since my pickup gets 10mpg I'm thinking about seeing if I can rent a hyundai genesis, can do some autoX comparison with the Camaro

I still (intentionally) haven't driven a Camaro yet... yours would be a good cherry popper LOL

(actually, I'd my first "ride" to be in a certain supercar I've heard about)

I get enough sphincter puckering thrills on the road already
