As far as sound...? It's night and day above 2k RPM. Below that they sound the same. But when I get on the throttle, it sounds like a totally different engine. The day after I installed it I was leaving work and just completely forgot I had that in and got on the throttle and it gave me a little scare, lol.

Yeah, I did a year. I enjoy that kind of stuff as a hobby. I don't think I could have done it as a career though. It's kind of my escape from the real world, lol.

Don't get me started on engineers.

Matt that thing sounds awsome! Definently louder than mine! Then again, it's kind of hard to hear anything over my flowmaster.
