Looks nice., on your page it said it changed the sound of your flowmaster is a deeper sound or higher? Also can you get a prefilter to cover the filter you used to help keep out mud and moisture?

It sounds preaty much same note its just a bit more pipey sound. It sounds more like its going through a longer bigger pipe, with some echo to it .
You can add prefilter cover to it any day since its just a cone filter as a matter of fact it will once i install it. Once i install it i will take a video of it so i can post the whistling from the intake and the exhaust sound

my only concern is the attachment to the throttle body... does that pvc close up with the strap on it? i measured my TB opening and its 2 3/4" from the outside of the lips (a hair less under the lips) a 3" id pipe leaves a 1/4" of play... im just concerned that if i go to rural king and get myself a 3" pipe, start cutting on it, it's guna be too lose and let in dirty air. did you use any rubber/insulator around the seals(mainly around the TB)? Everything after the TB is just like playing with Lego's so i'm not worried with at that. I'd appreciate some close ups/details of that elbow. you seem to have done it right.

Here is a pic of my pvc... As you can see there are clamps on both sides. I cut 1 end of the pvc preatty much all the way (left side of pic) I left just a tiny bit of the bigger part just so the clamp stays tight on there and wont fall off so this serves like a lip at the end of the pvc. The throttle body also has a bit of a lip on it so once you tighten the clamp down it will stay there since there will be a lip on the throttle body and a lip on the pvc and the clamp will be in the middle.

Now your question.. It's rubber so it easily shrinks when you tighten it. It wont even feel the 1/4th of an inch when you tighten the clip. (btw when you do tighten the clip use a screw driver and not a wrench since a wrench will snap it most of the time)

As you can see on the right side of the pvc it goes to the 3.5" pipe and out to the filter.. I did cut that side also but thats because i made the "breather piece" too close to the end there. If you put your breather piece 2" from the end you shouldnt need to cut it.

I finally got some time to install it, make a video and uploaded it to you tube. The camera lowers the psss sound for some reason Anyhow you can get a feel of it right before the rpm jumps up. It did make my 50 delta just a bit louder, its hardly noticable but there. If you're in gear and step on the gas it gives out higher pitched psss noise which i love.
