Is there a disadvantage of it being very tight?
Just to report back. Couldn't find any 1.5" but I did find a 1-3/8ths. Its tight but it fits... have to wiggle it around a bit but it works.I measured the inside diameter of the muffler to determine the hole saw size. I recall that i thought 1.5" was slightly too big and would hit the side of the outside baffle. But take your own measurement and let us know what you think
After I drilled out the baffles I recommend taking each exhaust to clean out the dwarf etc. I found it to be quicker and more effective then trying to scrape it out.
Louder, more refined throaty sound. I initially ran the with the baffles in, which is a nice sound and louder than drilled out stock baffles. Now I run the Freedom with no baffles and it is loud but not obnoxious and really nice sound. While cruising, it sounds to me like a Sousaphone hitting the low notes.That’s great. How do you find the freedom exhaust? A better note?
Maybe go with a stepper unibit vs a hole saw; the hole saw uses the pilot bit to prevent the hole saw from jumping around when cutting.
