Aero Turbine (Look into?)
The title of my reply was a double take, because I wish you all could look into my Aero-Turbine muffler.
Looking into the 4" Rolled Chrome Slant Cut Tip you will see nothing but air. You can see straight thru to the 2.25" piping coming from the cat. ????
I know that doesn't make sense. Because we all know that an uncapped exhaust will wake everyone in the entire neighborhood. Yet at idle you can't tell if my car is running, you have to look at the tach. Open the windows and you hear a soft purr.
It is definitely a straight thru muffler with no packing at all. Like the website says, all they do is speed up the slow outer air and re-introduce it back into the center. Some how it cancels out most of the sound.
Like I said before, I was looking for performance gains and that is what was acheived. If you get an open exhaust thus lowering your back pressure in the exhaust system you sometimes lose low end power. But beleive me when I say it actually improve my low end power and throttle response (of course my high end as well). My SE V6 exhibits more torque steer than ever before.
Since it came out with 240 ft. lbs. of torque from the factory. And a Toyota Tacoma V6 increased 18 ft. lbs. on the Aero-Turbine website I'm guessing that I now have about 260 ft. lbs. of torque.
My SE pulls like a mother when I get onto the freeway. When I say pull I mean it in a good way.
So if you want performance gains look into an Aero-Turbine (I mean actually look into one:lol: )
PS - I don't work for Aero-Turbine, just wanted to pass on my experiances to help some of you.
