The Q is lighter and a little better flow than stock and it's still quiet. The PQ4 makes more power and is much louder. Pick which one you want more quiet or more power.

I have a powercore 4 and powerbomb header and it is great, sounds like a 450 MX bike when the spark arrestor is out, sounds wicked and get looks everywhere I go.

Do you have the insert out so it is making full power?

I have the PC4 with the sparky in it, is it that much louder and better on power without it?

Nice choice :worthy: I have the powerbomb + PC4. With the spark arrestor in it is not offensive at all but still sounds great. Just passed its m.o.t here with no problems. With it out its quite alot louder but as wyattchad54 said, ounds great :banana: :banana: :banana:

I wish the FMF made as much power as the MRD 'cause to my ears they sound the best.

There is an allen screw at the inside bottom of it. It does not make any difference in power but it does sound better, louder but better tone.
