    I wanted to wait on this honestly but I would rather get the YouTube video out of the sound comparison now with just the silencer as that's all that most people install anyway and get a bit more YT revenue over the winter time then I'll do another video with the silencer + headers in the spring. I don't think I'll get headers done in time. they get to Jet-hot tomorrow.


    The De-Cel pops are perfect now!

    I could probably save more weight just cutting out beer for a week.

    Also, this thing smoked pretty bad when I installed it. looks like most exhausts throw out a bit of smoke. Seems to have stopped after a few miles.

    Wow, just got caught up here and read this thread. I can't believe there has been 19 pages without this theme music:

    Edit: I missed it. 205'd @nostatic :doh

    I had the Titanium Akro put on by EuroSport Asheville from new on an 18 and they did not refuel nor mess with the air side - it runs just fine. I did it primarily to try and limit the blue'ing of the downpipes but I still get a bronze/blue dis-coloring still.

    Alright, as promised. Night shots below are the Canon 5D w/ 24-70mm lens hand-held at 3200ISO so there are some artifacts if you go full-resolution but will look just fine on your tiny cell phone screen:

    Day shots, same lens:

    Also, it was 28F this morning so we get some good frost photos:

    Although, comparing a $2500 camera and $1000 lens to an $1049 iPhone, it's actually really impressive to me how far these mobile phones have gone. Both taken within a minute of each other at a very similar focal length:

    iPhone XS:

    Canon 5D:

    Both hand-held which induced a bit of shake to the Canon. But white noise suppression / smoothing is really good on the iPhone for being a tiny sensor.

    Damn, the pedestrians in NH must have to keep their heads on a swivel when you're driving down the road, not to mention motorcycle riders like yourself. Half the damn windshield is covered.

    In CA, you get a ticket just for daring to have one of those stupid little pine scented trees hanging from your rearview mirror. (Well, you should get a ticket if you're lame enough to have a pine scented tree hanging from your rear view mirror, but you get the point...)

    Knowing Adam, he probably has a full HID display on the unblocked portion of the windshield to compensate for the impaired vision, giving him a bird's eye view of the car's entire path of travel, and intended path of travel, complete with IR sensors, latitude/longitude readouts, a GMT displayed. :rofl

    Adam, if you're going to continue posting YT videos. Please pay a little more attention to what you are saying. You've got more than a handful of errors in the few I've watched. It's great you want to create content, veracity matters.

    Do you mind pointing out the errors? It would be helpful to all of us, including Adam.

    Well, that's because California is a bureaucratic hell hole. As a former citizen and business owner there, it is not really friendly to everyone that lives there. You'd have to pay me a lot to move back.

    Like what? I have 909 YouTube videos online, I think from now on just assume everything on the channel is factually incorrect and it's more like a comedy channel instead?

    You should see our mapping vans.

    You think I'm high tech and yes that photo of my car was staged. I never actually operated my car with that much stuff on it.
