Ok, I like the look of the dual exhaust and have been looking at some options. I kind of wanted to stay with the shorter stubby look of the stock dual exhaust. Can anyone post some pictures or suggestions on some kick-ass dual cans???

Are you looking for slip-ons or a half system that replaces the midpipe?

What mods do you think you will do in the future?

If you like the stock look, TORS and tune are hard to beat. Lots of companies (almost everyone) are now offering slip-on silencers for the S3, have you seen any that you like?

What is most important to you -look, sound, performance?
How loud do you want the exhaust?

Right now, I want something that performs and sounds good. I was kind of liking the dual carbon exhaust that Arrow offers, and was also looking at Jardine's dual carbon cans. Are any of those decent sounding??

The exhaust you have in your signature picture, is that a Trident system?? Those look good!!

I have the Trident (Wolf) half system with larger carbon cans and midpipe - I like it. It replaced the TORS I had on my bike at first. They are considerably louder and deeper, but not too much IMHO.

Both Arrow and Trident offer slip-on silencers or half systems. I am not sure about Jardine, they may only offer slip-ons. Chain Reaction only offers a half system with black silencers, but no carbon option.

The biggest issue with exhaust restriction is the precatalyst/sound baffle in the header. Until this is removed, most exhaust systems will make the same power. If you plan on removing this later, buying a half system now will be the best option for performance and overall costs.

The stock bikes make around 112-113 hp on a Dynojet at the rear wheels. With aftermarket silencers, expect 117-118 hp from all systems. Tuning (Tuneboy or PCIII) can improve the midrange and top end to as much as 124+ hp at peak. With header work and some intake clean up, you will definitely need tuning, and can make a good bit more power.

Carbon silencers tend to absorb the higher pitched sounds, and can result in a deeper tone. Larger diameter tubing through the silencer(s) tend to be louder. Longer silencers tend to absorb sound better than shorter ones. larger diameter silencers can add a deeper sound in sound engines and slightly quiet the sound. Low mount silencers (with little or no mid pipe) will tend to allow a bit more distinction between the exhaust pulses - think harsher tone due to being closer to the engine.

This might raise more questions than it answers, but I hope it helps.

Makes sense if I want to get a little better performance. Sounds like I'd be better off doing a half system instead. Any other options that you know of or would recommend, other then the Chain Reaction and Arrow?

Are those Shark exhausts pretty good, performance/sound wise???

I have never seen or heard the Shark, maybe someone else will post up some other info.

Shark is very big in Europe, all over the place in Germany. I was very interested in the off-road dual side Shark for my 04. The dyno sheet looked on average with most off-road/track pipes.

ZARD! how can anyone not want one? I like the look of the twin pipes as long as the bike is not next to one that has a ZARD.!

That look just doesn't interest me. I have no issue with single low mount silencers, but I expect a low rpm loss due to the lack of collector length.

Until someone can show me an independent dyno test for the Zard slip-on with before and after, I will expect the same results as their full system gives. :(
