No worries...hope to see you there

Yes sir! Stock internals and JUST a RPi X pipe and non other mods.

Thanks...
The variance is there because of the weather

I know! I was surprised myself! The RPI x pipe deletes the cats and resonators

Congrats on the huge gains!
Thanks!

I don't think just adding mufflers will gain anything.
