Hands down the most difficult exhaust I've ever built, Two into ones are a real pain in the ass to keep the tubes equal length and short enough for a nice powerband up top, keeping everything in tight so you don't burn the shit outta yourself all the time proves to be really tough too, as does trying to package it all so it doesn't look like a big turd either. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out though, and now my powerband should really be pulling hard between three and six grand, right where I want it. Before It started really kickin' at about two grand and you could feel the pull taper off at about five. Should run quicker now, when you shift the optimum powerband up higher in the rev range the motor is spinning quicker and therefore pumping more air, when you pump more air you can burn more fuel and make more power, and that all equates to more get-up-and-go. It's an endless cycle, almost an addiction if you choose to call it that, build it faster, get bored with the new power, build it faster again, get used to it again, the cycle will only stop when you run out of ideas on how to make it faster or run out of "cubic dollars". It is a hell of alot of fun and a learning experience all along the way though.
