Thanks, Aaron or possibly Dan(I'm not sure which one you are, sorry), for explaining that so in depth. I knew that the power band could be manipulated with tubing diameter and length but I didn't realize to what extent. Now I want to dig into exhaust science that much more. Do have any suggested literature? Oh and also does anyone know if the defender starts with 15/8 or 13/4? I'd like to try to replicate it's performance as closely as possible.
