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?

yes, you can when revving it.

I think that the tubing for the actuators are too small, stock ones are hard plastic and very big.

I will post a pic after dinner of the stock vs. what I had to plumb, the stock will not work.....unless you cut or have access to make this??? We shall see.

Hold up!

So, in a nutshell, is the LOUD side louder than stock (if so, very noticeably)? I just ordered this and I wanted quite a bit louder...but still have control with m2w.

Louder than stock on start up, but not overly loud. At highway speeds it is not loud at all, very quiet compared to stock. Again I don't know if the tubing that I re-plumbs that it is not working correctly, I did go out tonight and check the vacuam to make sure that it closed and opened the actuators, Mannualy that is. Still need to get the exhaust from rubbing in spots before I takle that beast.

Are you thinking that the actuators may not be working properly so you might not have them open at WOT? I sure hope that is the case because my kit is being built this week and scheduled to ship on 12/7 and I really wanted quite a bit louder than stock...withe the baffles open of course. I know the tone is probably more aggressive but the volume interests me more...
