And yes, I have 3rd* burns on my right leg, I got out of my dad vette with pipes and forgot about them, I had a pair of shorts on, to this day, I will NEVER forget about those pipes, when I get out of my car, I always look and tell all, watch the pipes, it's been 30 + years and seem like yesterday. :sad:

I really like my sidepipes. Gotta be really carefull getting in and out though. Passengers have to be warned getting in and out EVERY time. I wouldn't want them on a daily driver but for what I use my car for they're awesome! Can't wait to get an in car video around a road course, they sound so good there opening it up through corners, wide open down the straights, then downshifting into corners. Every driving instructor I've had in the HPDE events has said how cool it sounds.

Supertrapps are accually one of the best mufflers on the marlet because they are completely tunable. You can add discs to make them louder or take some away to quite them down.
You can also tune them to make the car run richer and leaner. Increase and decrease backpressure.
There expensive but well worth the money if your running a high end motor.

I had some side pipes on my  78  t/a like in reply #7 They where not that loud. Deeper throat noise. they work like glass  packs. I  have them in the rafters of my  garage if you want to  buy them. They connected to the headers with two "C" shaped tubes forming an "S".  They came off when I replaced  a header and it did not point strait back. New angle would not line up.  When they where  on the car it  could NOT go  on a lift  rack at a shop because the joining pipe between the header and sidepipe had to go below the frame rail and I had no cearance.  They  did add attitude  to  the car!
