    I know, but You Tube says it may take awhile to post.

    I just uploaded it.

    Works now.

    That's a nice sound. Definitely a lot different than the Kooks/Magnaflow that I'm used to. I hope someone posts a few seconds of WOT revs. (lollygagger8 or heavy)

    Re: Header Questions

    I haven't had the KOOKS, so I can't comment.

    I did have a CORSA setup.

    This is my second B&B as the first system was headers and integral cats, which they then changed to a collector and cat back.

    I sold the originals and got the 2nd gen "long tube" type B&B.

    The system really compliments the maggie in terms of "breathing".

    Fabrication is first rate.

    With this setup I had friends swear to me they could hear it a quarter of a mile off!

    Guess that's why I got the ticket!

    Was fun while it lasted.

    I wonder how loud it will be with the cats and X pipe..........

    With my setup I can keep it quiet with shifts around 2K rpms. Have not been nabbed for excessive noise or excessive accelerating. Fingers crossed!

    Re: Header Questions

    Hopefully my friend with the Camera will come over soon. My idle sounds deep like CTSV 510's....VERY deep and metallic. I'll make sure to get some WOT sounds too. There is nothing that sounds like B&B, and I'll agree with heavy....craftsmanship is A++++

    There is a Diner in town that all the hotrods go to and I finally went there with the V. EVERYBODY came up to me and asked me what it was, and what exhaust it had! Everybody loves the sound.....almost as much as me!

    Getting it tuned by EPP today!

    If that is the case then Kook's sucks. You got 20 more HP then me from the same tuner on the same dyno.

    Nice numbers.

    I don't know if I can wait till Thanksgiving to get my headers on. Are those numbers consistent with what other folks with B&B have seen? I have Corsa catback, so I am going Kooks route for the convenience of fit.

    Ted, why do you think his numbers are so different from yours?

    The only things that I can think of are:

    1. Could I have had a bad batch of gas in the car when I got dynod?
    2. My airfilter wasn't freshly cleaned.
    3. The ambient temperature was different.

    I hate to say it, but there is just no way a first gen set of B&B headers with built in cats made more HP then a set of Kook's long tubes based on the headers alone. The 3" vs. 2.5" exhaust should not have made more then a 1-2 Hp difference on a NA car.

    I am going to gut the cats so it still looks like they are there (for emissions testing purposes) and go get re-tuned by Brent.
