Power Bomb vs. Mega Bomb
Posted December 21, 2005 - 07:29 PM
The current plan is to do the new titanium powercore 4 with the Mega Bomb header, but I am wondering if the mega bomb is worth the price difference over the power bomb.
Mega Bomb = ~310
Power Bomb = ~180
I'm sure the power difference is not noticible but will the mega bomb make the DB's lower than the power bomb allowing me to run a more free flowing exhaust without being hassled?

I was very dissapointed with the results. To me, there was no noticeable difference to the ear, of the sound level, also, if there was an increase in bottom end, I didn't feel it. Maybe others have had better experience than me, but for the money I spent on the Powerbomb, I expected it to perform as stated by FMF.

"The MegaBomb header has a works look on a four-stroke. Internally there are a few holes inside the mini expansion chamber that give unstable exhaust gasses a place to be absorbed. Another side benefit of this design is a reduction in sound output, up to two db quieter in some cases. On the bike the MegaBomb works as advertised and has the similar effect on the power—a smooth, more-crisp throttle response—but over a wider RPM range. Where the PowerBomb is subtle, you really notice the MegaBomb. Hand-formed, therefore much harder to produce, it retails for $349.99 and has found a home on our YZ450F."
There you have it...SC

In addition, my buddy who is a mechahic for Yamaha said it was a waste of money
