To go Kazuma or not...

OK...here's the question. I know Kazuma is supposed to be very loud. I have custom straight thru exhaust. Sets of people's car alams all the time. I would like to go with kazuma, I want the 20 hp gain. It couldn't possibly be louder than I already have, could it?

I don't think his camera is bad...
It's probably got some bad setting while changing resolution...

Here is the "medium setting" on my 2m camera

To have a Kazuma like experience...


...remove the entire stock exhaust, unbolt it at the end of the header. Drive around a bit and see how much of a headache you get. Still thinking about getting it? Leave the exhaust off for a few days. When you have to go to the store to buy Tylenol because you have a pounding migraine, then you can put the stock exhaust back on and live in peace.

dude get the kazuma and get a silencer for it. its gonna be a 4.5" silencer,preferably one with a small bore and as long as possible(measure it and cut it off just before the bend) when you get the kazuma you would know what bend i'm talking about.
and a lot of noise associated with the kazuma has to do with the fact that it was not welded properly.
i later found out that you can buy a adaptor at the muffley shop that goes into the kazuma exactly and goes over the stock exhaust pipe after you have cut it off. you can ither clamp this set up or after it has been put together mig or tig weld around both ends. it sounds smoother. thats how i am going to do my other kazuma(i sold mine and thats how we put it on this time)but i kinda miss it you will feel the difference low down,and hard above 6k! thumbsup

ok seriously it is so sick the tone that it makes is awsome. not the ricer sound but a deep tone. i would defintly go with one adn put a silencer on it like i did. with out the silencer it is unbearable, but the silencer makes a huge difference. it is still louder than any exhaust out there with the silencer but when you cruze at 3 grand the sound goes away and ur all good. i have had it for a month and so far no tickets. i aboutly love it to death
