I always liked the sound of those Hooker Aero-Chamber mufflers. But damn, they are heavy.
Always looking for new and interesting ways to waste money.

Yeah, I wanted something that had good flow and sounded "different" They did sound great but were actually too loud if there is such a thing :shock: I ended up putting tube mufflers before them so essentially I'm running 4 mufflers albeit straight through. You could drop a ball in the collector flange and it would come out the tailpipe.

The other mufflers on my list were Spintech or Warlocks for a cheap muffler that could easily be uncorked.

Still waiting on the driveshaft to be made.....


I tried to get these stickers modified slightly but haven't had much luck with the local printers, so I gave up and decided to just put the originals on. They fit and look ok...

Wonder if someone would get a chuckle if they noticed......

But when you get up close you can see just how beefy it really is....

It's overkill, but piece of mind.
