I agree with Boost. If you want performance, then the Sparks and the PCV is the way to go. But, if you just want a good sounding exhaust that comes with a few extra ponies, then the HMF and optimizer will work just fine. I run the HMF and plug and play on my Rincon and it works just fine.

This is my next pipe !!! my Barker craked in the mid pipe, the header pulled out of the head because of the weld and after the second quiet core the end cap felt apart, no more thread. Not to mention packing last about 1-2 tank....

SPARKS!!! I had the HMF and it looked good and sounded great but the Sparks is built better and I picked up more power with it.

Broken,

I've had my original packing for almost a year now with around 100hours on the pipe and the packing is still in great shape.

Heard good things about the Sparks and would pick that over the HMF. As far the Barkers, I've had mine for 2 years now with no issues so I dont know what happened with Broken's.
Maybe it's the first version, got it when it has been released. And maybe using it with the quiet make too much turbulence in the can and packing take a beat.

I have to use the quiet core at black river this summer. I'll see if run into the same problem. Is anyone running a quiet core for an extended period of time on the sparks?
