I was in contact with Peter Herrington ( Meerkat Mufflers) and he sent me this info for DIY method.
I have not done this Mod yet, just got the info to see how to do it DIY.do you have any dyno results on this mod?
Watch What A Day’s review, he had Meerkat do the mod early on.exhaust noise level increase????
I am one of those guys that like the look of the sock exhaust. I just haven’t seen anything yet that looks right to me, just my opinion. I’m sure there are plenty of guys that don’t like the look of the stock pipes.I was in contact with Peter Herrington ( Meerkat Mufflers) and he sent me this info for DIY method.
I just started her up but couldn’t go for a ride as it is raining/wet snowing. I’d say it has deeper tone and I’d estimate it’s about 30%-40% louder. Probably about halfway between stock and something like the Competition Werks slip ons. Looking forward to taking it for spin. Unfortunately I don’t have a GoPro so I have no way of recording it.Interested to know how this sounds. As Peter doesn’t charge lots for this mod, I was going to ship mine up to him to do as I’m ****e with a welder!
Finally was able to go for a real ride since it was a balmy 40deg Fahrenheit…the mod seems to be working/sounding good. As stated in my previous post, the sound is way deeper at idle and lower RPMs and then is similar to stock but louder. No drone at all at highway speeds.So I was finally able to go for a short ride...Pretty happy with the mod. I’d say the bulk of the increase in sound is at lowish RPM’S Under 3k . I didn’t do a before and after with the decibel meter. With the mod it idles at 78 decibels and has significantly deeper tone at low RPM’s(under 2800 rpm). Above that it sounds similar to stock but louder and slightly deeper tone.
Interestingly, I tried installing small baffles which made little to no difference at idle. I haven’t had a chance to try them other than at idle.
