    question: did you change the amount of water going to your waterbox?
    if so, how much water is going thru the waterbox?
    that will effect how loud it is.

    I haven't been able to test mine. And since I will be starting with a new motor and SD pump it will be hard to tell if it made a dif on mine. I do know it will be (much) louder regardless of how much water (within reason) I have going into the waterbox. I may just go to a TDR/Riva box by next year.

    the reason why i stated that it is louder if less water is going thru it is, when i blew my water line. the exhaust noise got really loud. and my initial thought while i was getting it back to shore was the coupler on my freeflow might have failed on me.

    I ran one on my ski for Mudbug. Anyone that was there can tell you how loud it was. Way too loud for me and it's for sale if anyone is interested.

    It gave me a bit more bottom end but I didn't see any gains on top.

    Jeff, i normally live by this motto but you don't understand. After a full day of riding my ears were ringing. Maybe I'm just getting too old
