Nice, I like the VT's but they are a little too quiet. Changing my setup tomorrow as well!

Yes please if you don't mind. How loud are the VT's? Are they quieter than the Kooks'?

Both my VT's weighed in about what a stock muffler weighs. Both my VT's in a box were 24lbs. I tried bullet mufflers but they were super loud with no cats, or mid muffler in the middle. I even got pulled over at idle for being too loud with the bullets, just not worth it.

They are quiet until you go WOT! Yes quieter then most any other muffler.

I am thinking about going with something like a Hooker Max Flow and then finding someone that can custom make the angles to mount it. The product weight is less than stock (~25 lbs) but it wouldn't be a loud as those damn Kooks Mufflers. You can really wake the dead at 2 AM in the morning.

I havent even got my G8 yet, and I already wanting to customize it. Id like to do LTs and exhaust with quiet mufflers. My wife and kids will be riding in this thing too, and I hate noise when Im cruising on the highway. I like it quiet when Im cruising. Would those Dynomax VTs be good for that?? What would guys recommend for what Im looking for??
