FMF Q muffler vs the stocker
Posted June 02, 2004 - 08:47 PM
Do you guys recommend any other mufflers that make decent power, but aren't too loud?
Also, after I rejet it for the open muffler. Will it run like a turd when I have to run the gytr?

The FMF Q runs a little better than the open stock exhaust in my opinion but it is still a little on the loud side.

I doesn't run quite as good as the open stock exhaust, but not enough different to call the performance poor or bad. It is run MUCH better than with the PMB insert, no doubt about it!
I've passed sound tests at the last three GNCC's and it seems to have gotten quieter the longer I've had it, although as the packing begins to burns out, I'd assume it will start to get louder again (bell curve).
The quality is good as well. It is important that we all lean towards quieter exhaust systems for very obvious reasons!

I've been interested in a quiet exhaust but am going to wait on this generation Q ... heard the next one will be out soon and be super lightweight (all Ti?) and possibly better performance, I would imagine.
Thats great to hear. I know the manufactures will figure this stuff out eventually so we can have good performance and low sound. Just need some time.

Also, after I get the jd jet kit. Will jetting for the open exhaust make it run crappy for when I have to run the insert? The only other thing I haven't done yet is the bk mod. I'm to chicken to drill and tap such an expensive carborator. If there's anyone in the mid mich area that would help me out, let me know.

Don't wory about it. Do the BK mod, it is worth it and it is easy to do. A drill and a tap are pretty easy to use. A drill press would be best but I didn't have one and it came out just fine. Just choose your drill/tap size wisely...you don't want to go to big.

I still wonder if the FMF Q would pass a 96 db test. Mine seems louder than this.

It does seem a bit louder to me than 96, but it tests just fine . . . it may depend on the type of testing method though.

Remember you have to repack these things or they can get very loud.

How much lighter is a FMF Q than a stock WR exhaust? In my case it's a '99 - black, not polished stainless.
Anybody got any experience with the 92dB silencers - CRD, etc?
