    I do notice an increase in hp. You don’t necessarily get an hp increase, rather it decreases the loss of hp from the crank to the wheels. Plus they sound great!

    Eh, dosent work that way. You will always have a power loss of around 20% to the wheels. Power loss is thru the trans and drive axle. Unless you change those some how you will have the same power loss. If you gain 8 hp at the wheels that is roughly 10 at the crank. It may not feel like a big gain cause it changes the power band. You loose some down low with the gains being on the top end with long tubes generally.

    Cool thread.
    I'm always amazed at how much better vehicles are today than in the "Good Olde Days". With even fairly minimal maintenance, they'll go over 100,000 miles without breathing hard.
    My daily driver is an '08 Honda Civic with 81,000 miles on it.
    My bike is a '12 Yamaha FJR1300 with only 22,000 miles on it.
    And our "new" vehicle is a 2017 Toyota Camry SE purchased used a few weeks ago with 27,000 miles on it.
    We should be good for awhile ...

    My 1994 Silverado pickup is over 200,000 (my first vehicle).

    My 2002 Tahoe is getting close to 200K.

    My 2010 Camaro is over 100K.

    It's not the years or the mileage, it's highway vs. city.

    In other news I went to the car show and rode in a $100,000 Dodge Ram. Lifted a 31,000 pound weight eight feet in the air.

    Drove at a 30 degree angle straight up and tilted like a NASCAR track.
