I have a Q on a 00 400. BARELY passes sounds, but has 4 times now. Also added the SX powerbomb, as that was marketed to help more with noise. Keep the stock header if that is the only reason you would think of changing that too. In CA they can be very strick on sound. The many rangers I have had the pleasure of talking to who hand out those very nice $200+ souveniers if you do not pass sound report that 99% of the Q's pass on the WR and that none of the other aftermarket systems have as good a record. Hope that helps....
Interesting. Noise is what I was worrying about with the PowerCore - even with the Quiet Insert. FMF only lists sound specs for the 'Q' on their site, which makes me think the PowerCore may be risky. Kinda too bad, because I was liking it. I'm a little afraid that the Q might not have much of a performance gain. The PowerBomb header is supposed to help with performance as well as sound, so they say..

Power gain from what??
You will loose power if your running stock uncorked.
You will gain power if you are running the entire stock system, or any of the inserts I'm aware of.
Unfortunatly in 4 strokes noise = power. From there we need to establish what we are willing to give up in the way of power to meet the requirements or goals or laws.

I can't say for sure, but you might be able to go the same route with the PC as others here have with the FMF PowerCores. A PC496 for performance(w/ marginally acceptable noise), add an end cap and quiet core insert from a PC T-4, for ultra stealth mode. Again, I'm not sure those parts will fit, but I think they might. You'd have to call PC. I do know the T-4 quiet core won't fit the 496 with the 496 end cap.(I tried with an old T-4 quiet core I have lying around)
If you do go this route, you'll have to change jetting every time you add or remove the quiet core. Personally, thats over the line for me, I'm to lazy for that.
Just some thoughts...Good luck.
