I have reposted this as a new topic since I wasn't sure if anyone was looking through the old post. Here is my post on the other thread:

Nick and Georgie,

I love em! My wife may actually go for more rides with me. I'm very impressed with the exhaust noise reduction. They were definately worth the wait.

As promised I am uploading a quickly put together file on sound reduction on my motor. I have edited it several times due to size but its still almost 7 meg. The video does not do justice to the reduction in exhaust noise.

Enjoy.

Dial up users might beware.

Link fixed. Sorry guys :rolleyes:

Excellent! Thanks for the video Bunkie. I'm planning to try and get mine mounted in the next week so I can hear 'em live. It's supposed to warm up a bit next week here so that will help.

You know what we should do?!?!

A clip of the FFR pipes, A clip of Convincor's lobaks, and a clip each on Convincor's and My car.

Get organized and simulate the same conditions for both cars. What do you think?

I think you all should use a decibel meter too. Apparently they have them at Radio shack for around 40.00 and they are fairly accurate.

Still pretty loud driving around today with mine. I like it a lot better though. Several people made comments that it is not as "Raspy" as the FFR pipes. Took out more of the high pitch crackle. Hard to discribe the difference.

How do you like em?

I know the ones i had were definately still loud. they were quieter at idle, but once at regular speed, they had this resonating tone that was very loud. Just my .02

They almost seem louder than the Lobaks. Maybe not.The tone is much deeper. You feel the sound, like keeping the volume the same but turn the base up all the way. When I first got them on and fired it in the garage at 2am :rolleyes: (just for a second) the wife told me later that morning of course that she thought see heard thunder during the night
The Lobaks have a sound like something with no muffler, or open headers but don't seem as loud. Won't be going for a ride any time soon, just got 10" of snow :(

Bunkie,
Thanks for the video.
It sounds very good with the SS pipes.

I have them. I think they are the same loudness but a much lower pitch sound. THe lower pitch sound doesnt hurt my ears. I love them. Its so cool, they shake everything around you.
Something about the FFR pipes hurt my ears. I think its the higher screaming pitch they have.

The pipes are still authoritatively loud but the bite isn't as bad. My best description of the loud sound is resonance. I still use ear plugs when driving and suggest that everyone else do likewise. I have already been asked why I wear ear plugs and my response is that I always wear ear plugs when shooting or doing any other loud activities, why should this be any different?
