Re: [DMCForum] Twin turbo muffler recommendations?



When 6068 had the island kit in it, I found it kind of
loud too..  It was bareable though.  I had the non-cat
version.  Newer versions had JUST a Cat, and no
muffler, with resonator tips.  I found that setup
louder.

The Legend engine uses the same turbos as Island, but
Martin is correct that they are turned around.  FWIW,
1860 with the Legend engine only has the CAT, no
mufflers.. and I find it to be pretty reasonable when
it comes to noise.  The fins in the turbo act like a
muffler of sorts.
