Right now I am running with 7 disks and it is much more quiet than my friends 02 WR426. He has the stock pipe. Now that I have done the BK mod I will try messing with the number of disks but I like more low to mid power than high. I do mostly trail riding. I am not sure about the quiet core, I bought the bike used.

The quiet core does change the tone of the BBBBRRRAAAPPPPPP!!
My grandma says its quieter.. ( Q core w/ 10 discs, VS 8 discs and NO core) just about the same power..VERY CLOSE. it sounds a little more throaty.. deeper, less scream, more bark.
I like it.. just switched back, after a full comparison with the FMF mega max for the last 6 months.
So- in conclusion... the Quiet core lowers the db
level a little, with the same discs. (minor power drain)
Q core + a few discs = same power, and delivery... deeper, less ear piercing shreak
have fun playing in the mud!!

then the fine line of how many more discs until the effects of the core are nill.
I live in the woods (200 acres woods, 3/4 mile from the nearest road, 2 minute 4-wheeler ride to the cabin from my truck) that my Grandfather bought in the 50's, and grandma is strict.. NO 2 STROKES! She will hop on her 230E Suzuki (Shes 80!!) and chase down 2 smokers... "Please Be Quiet, or leave." And with the Power Bomb & quiet core (10 discs, good power) she will come out and watch me ride! Instead of just plugging her ears and screaming!
So it works for me!!!
