Rob and guys,

I have time this Saturday after C&C Irvine to pay a visit to EAS for some dyno action. Anybody have Tom's number at EAS? I should prolly give him a call ahead of time. Thanks!

BLACK MARKT, think you can make it to cars and coffee in Irvine early Saturday? You are up in LA, it is kind of a drive and 0-dark-early.

I beg to differ ... I think it sounds amazing
Times when I don't want all the sound I simply close the valve.

I totally agree with you. I love the sound with the valves open. I just think is important that people realize how loud it is in comparison to the other systems on the market.

And by the way, you can definately feel the difference in performance.
