DanMoto Carbon GP full exhaust
So I purchased the DanMoto carbon GP full header back exhaust kit. I researched it a lot and for the price $179 the stainless steel header pipe alone was worth the money. I received it within 1 week from China. Well packaged. I expected everything to be bigger lol. It installed perfectly. Everything lined up like it was a stock exhaust. Only small issue is that I used a new header copper ring gasket and not really thinking and researching before I did it, I torqued the header nuts down to OEM specs. Mistake! Like all aftermarket headers the flange is much thinner than the OEM Steel flange. Also with a new crush washer torquing it to OEM specs slightly warped the flange. Bent in where the nuts go over the studs. But since it was a new gasket and a perfect fit, it's all good. So 1st test and not 1 single leak anywhere. I used the old cigarette smoke method to check at the header gasket, midpipe clamp and the can spring connection. Idling it has a very deep throaty tone, I love it. Now once I took it for a ride I could not believe how F****** loud it is! It has a very nice sound and a very very nice decelerating sound. It is a straight through pipe with no db killer. My old Musarri had a permanent DB killer installed. As soon as I opened her up I couldn't believe the instant increase in power? It climbs through the revs very fast. I know it's BS to say an exhaust system adds a lot of HP to these engines. But between the weight savings and all my mods? It was extremely noticeable to me. I give this full exhaust kit a big Thumbs up! for only $179.
Very nice tig welds ..real 12k woven Carbon fiber(doesn't get hot at all)
