Post Attn: Bob? How's that Stromung?

edit: I guess this is for Bob & Jason, not just Bob!

Well, are there any changes in your opinion of the Strom?

I was listening to the sound samples again last night and I have decided I *really* need one. I just want to know if I should play the credit-card game...

Do you have any pictures? That is what will sell me 100%...

I'm still waiting for mine. Trey said he should be getting some in by the end of this week or early next week.

Jason was kind enough to give me ride in his car to check it out. I think Jason said is was a little loud for his sedan. However, I thought it sounded great...mellow tone, but not loud. Jason did a run under WOT, and it wasn't loud at all. He has an Amsoil filter just like my car, and I think there is more sound from the filter than the muffler.

It did stick out a bit from the bumper, but I don't mind that.

I'll take some pictures when I get mine.

Bob

I have been meaning to ask you guys if there have been any "problems" with the Amsoil... Any butt-dyno results, or just a nice mean sound? Better throttle response?

I've been satisfied with the Amsoil filter.

Butt-dyno says it pulls a bit better above 4000rpm. May be it's just my imagination because of the nice growl above this rpm range. From idle on up, I couldn't tell the difference in throttle response.

I sympathize with you. I remember what it's like being a newly wed...all these temptations for new toys while trying to get settled in.

Andy, I hope my comments are not the deciding factor that will sell you 100% because I don't want to be responsible for putting you in the "dog house" .

Well, we actually have a pretty good agreement that came out of a thread a while back in the general forum: One guy said that his wife is cool with mods as long as she gets 10-20% of the value of said mod in some other product, his example was "shoes". I had my wife read that thread and she found it *interesting* to say the least, and she agreed to go along with it! So, If I want the Stainless Stromung Dual-tip, that will run about $450 with shipping and such, I just need to buy Kim about $90 worth of x-product (our current agreement is books, but at $90 she might decide on shoes). So, I just need to set aside $540 for the exhaust.

*BUT* I am in credit hell due to the honeymoon (which is not for another two weeks ). So, I just need to manuever cash into "the right things" at this point.

Don't worry... I won't blame you! I have wanted this exhaust for a *long* time, you are just an enabler at this point... (c'mon man, you know you want it!)
