2XX $30 or less. A longer glasspack is quiet, a short one will be louder! I had a 30" on a 300 I6 F150 and you could not hear it running. My 4x4 F150 has 3" pipes and a 12" cherry bomb. It is loud!

I think I'm gonna cut out the center of mine so it's super short so i don't get ticketed for no muffler

The only problem is they don't have the same offset inlets but it wasn't a problem for me.

STEERING BRACE

I made a steering brace. Its essentially the same thing you get from KOR but, I saved $175 ****ing dollars! It was easy to make. Took a few hours. I cant feel much of a difference yet. I wanna see how it feels wheeling. It seems to take some whine out of the steering box.

I don't remember the reference voltage... Check for even sweep in resistance (with sensor unhooked) as you open and close throttle by hand. If it is jumpy or has an open or anything at a point it is pry bad.

I just ha to replace mine again couple weekends ago.

Had issues with connection on mine. Wiggled it for the longest time, then cut off factory end and put on spade terminals. Eventually still had to replace it.
