I am leaving the silencer before the rear wheel intact.

Has anyone dyno'ed the car to see if a mufflerless setup does more than produce noise? Which I was surprised to see that it wasn't unbearable.

One thing I noticed when trying this on the LX for autocross and road course events was that any and all of the stumbles the E-throttle is known for (regarding rolling into the throttle) were gone. The car behaved much like a traditional mechanical linkage would... That alone is enough to make me run this setup for the 2008 season, but I want to make sure that the loss of backpressure doesn't significantly hurt things either regarding lower rpm torque and hp.
