Even if it had passed with the quiet core, I don't think I would have wanted to keep it since it really sufficated the bike too much. So, I did some reading and research and ended up getting a CRD. Great power, good looks... a little heavy (stainless).
I would LOVE the CRD if it actually did as claimed and lower sound to 96DB... fat chance! With CRD I tested at 99 DB (new out of the box), and once it warmed up I was up over 100 DB! After repacking it myself I tested it again at Mammoth Bar.... 98DB. I have now welded a tip which points down, with the Pro Billet Silent Insert which I can remove via a set screw. No idea yet on the new noise level as I have not been able to test it yet.
I could have saved a lot of time and money getting the FMF Q pipe from the very beginning
