Sorry - I mis-spoke here. I realize now it was a forum member that sent me a PM a few days before my dyno session saying that he knew someone that did 94 rwhp stock and 104 rwhp with mods. Don't know if that's a DynoJet dyno or a Mustang dyno.

I'm on metallurgist, but I can tell the difference between titanium and stainless steel and I installed a fuIl titanium exhaust system. The packing slip says its an Evolution exhaust system and the installation manual is for a full titanium exhaust system (different instructions because there are two different anit-sieze products for the full ti system.)

I can't tell from my order form which system I ordered, I priced matched the exhaust system with one from another online dealer so maybe it was a full Ti system that I was unaware of or maybe Revzilla read the price match web site incorrectly. Maybe some dolt in shipping grabbed the incorrect box, or maybe Revzilla was giving me a free upgrade for ordering $3,000 of parts from them that week. Dunno, but what I do know is that I have a full Ti system. The weight savings alone confirms this.

I believe you now. You are correct in that. I'm not sure what happened, but you got one hell of a deal, because I believe someone screwed up. At $1150 I assumed that was the SS version. That is about the on line price I've seen for it. The cheapest I found the Ti was $1500 on line, which is what my local guy price matched. I even checked Revzilla. I usually buy from them for stuff my local guy doesn't have in stock.

Thank you very much for actual hard data. Apples to apples data is extremely hard to find and a complete before and after testing ON THE SAME DYNO is just about impossible. GREAT JOB!!!!!
