that big hammer is what i dont have. i may try again when it warms up a bit. its too cold to be outside beating on a muffler.

ok i just took her out for the test run, first off when i took the muffler out, duh found out it was backwards the way it was postioned was like cups, so i imagine that hindered it a lil bit, but holy s**T she was just like a raped ape i couldnt help but mess with some poor unsuspectin charger i wasnt planin on taken out the cat but i dont know, im still impressed with how she sounded,
