David,I wanted to circle back and let folks know that I LOVE LOVE these mufflers. With the FFR side pipes, I needed to wear earplugs or my ears would ring after driving the car. I have not worn earplugs since installing these mufflers. The car still sounds great but its just not harsh. Much quieter while cruising...
Incredibly, after driving the car hard, I can literally put my hand on the muffler where my leg would touch it and it's hot, but it doesnt burn me. Doing that with a normal pipe would leave sheets of skin on the pipe!
You wouldn't happen to have a laser thermometer to give a readout after a few miles of driving? Definitely interested to see what temp reads. Especially if using drummer mikes heat shield as a secondary heat barrier
