Question Ready to purchase exhaust.... Which one???

Ok I have a power commander and velocity filter on the way. I cannot decide on which exhaust to purchase. I have looked at them all but do not have enough atv experience to know any pro's and con's of each company. I am leaning towards the HMF since this is where i got the controller from.. Well then on top of that I do not know which full HMF system I should get? I will be using the bike for general track and trail riding. Any help would be appreciated from experienced members.

Bahh its a bit slow on here.... Well I purchased the FMF super bomb header cause I'm just itchin for more power. Still undecided about the muffler, are they all pretty much the same? Can I get one of the quiter ones and not lose sufficient power from a louder one?

Are other pipes compatible with the FMF Powerbomb? I wouldn't think they would be. I'm getting a HMF Ballance pipe with the Dobeck commander and a Velocity air filter. Ordering it all right after Thanksgiving.

Yea they should be, it says they will bolt up to a stock muffler if needed. I talked with someone earlier and purchased the FMF Q4 Silencer. He told me of one of there trail ride friends having one of the FMF racing pipes and no can stand to ride near him its so loud. How much of a difference should I notice with the Header, Exhaust, Commander and Velocity Filter?

I would guess 3-5hp but it will feel and sound like much more!!

Isn't that what counts??

Well if you pull 5hp that's about a 10% increase over stock. Does that sound better?

I think 5hp is being very modest, most modern 4-stroke quads gain about 7-10hp over stock from an aftermarket pipe. Dont see why the XX would be any different.

I would have went with HMF, I dont think its a good idea to mix and match silencers and headpipes, and Im thinking it probably wont fit unless you got a FMF silencer too. It may work with the stock silencer but that doesnt mean it will fit other aftermarket silencers.

Really? 10hp? Man that sounds like a lot. But I'm certainly not an expert. Dyno's on the HMF and the 2Bros both show a 3-5hp gain with a slip on, controller and no airbox lid. Looks like 5 is the magic number in the 3500-4500 rpm range, then it drops a bit. I would think that with a full system you would pull more, but not double it. Then again, I don't really know. I'm going with the slip-on, filter and efi controller combo. I'm sure that I'll be happy with it.
