Logically this would equate to less exhaust gas flow, taking the muffler out of the equation. What have you noticed with this setup in regard to performance and sound?
It does look like all the bends are mandrel bent though . It shouldn't effect anything .

Hope it holds up for you man. My buddy had a dual set up from summit that rusted out after about 3 years, granted he didn't paint it and it was an F-1Shitty

Honestly I was just going off of the picture alone, and both setups appeared to be the same diameter tubing. Very cool economical setup...and thanks for the pictures. Too many mods get talked about with far too few pictures.

im definitely one of those guys that say "you get what you pay for". but i dont expect it to last 20 years either. when i bought this kit i was mainly worries that it wouldnt fit correctly or i would have to do some major fabbing to get it to work but if fit nicely with just minor things changed. ive bought many systems for my DD's and non seem to last over 5 years or maybe cause i end up selling them after that hahahaha!
