Installed the silencer in my Greddy TiC to go to a funeral, took it right back out as soon as I got home. That thing seriously kills power

They couldn't get the impacted bugs off the front.

You guys got any recommendations?

Bought 2 new tires for the wife's car. Run flats are overrated and over priced.
