Re: Olson Performance shorty exhaust??
I have it for my 03 right now, and I love the sound of it...mintsoda is right 03-05 gen its pretty loud on, but honestly i've grown used to it in a positive way. absolutely love it.
the only thing I didn't like was the hanger that they give with it. I called Mitch at Olson Performance (which might i add is a Grade A guy..), and he had said that he's been trying to get a 2g r6 in there to try and reconstruct a better looking hanger for the bike...asked about running without it and he said if anything tack weld it.
well, i've been running with the bike for a couple months now, and haven't tack welded it, just tightened the v-clamp really well, and no issues of vibrating loose or anything.
now, as far as performance, I haven't really noticed a difference as far as power gains/losses, however the throttle is a little less snappy. but i'm sure with a solid tune and maybe even a set of v-stacks you'd be good.
why don't you just give him a call, guarantee he's gonna rest assure you.
