a very deep, throaty tone, without any harsh buzzy or raspy tones. We

away from the "Honda boy-racer" sound that seems to be popular with many
of the cheap import systems on the market. Most people love the sound
our Exhaust systems for this reason
and we're known for having one of
the more sporty and reasonable Exhaust
