    Flow differance between a through hull exhaust and free flow?

    I keep lookingg at how much a pain in the ass it looks like to install a through hull exhaust on my RXTX, I already did the free flow, and I'm running a 4" Kana intake. I know the IC relocate is a semi must do, but what I'm I going to gain on the IC reloacte and through hull exhaust?

    Little to nothing in terms of performance. It cleans up the engine compartment alot though.

    Its easy you have to remove your opas so you Tighten clamps up through that hole....I was close to installing the PP exhaust leaving the Opas in place but I drilled the Rear hole it the wrong place so had to leave the OPAS off...Still RXT-X with no OPAS is Great....i now Prefer no OPAS...

    I have already removed the OPAS and installed RE extensions, also did a free flow, with a 4" Kana, I didnt want to do a IC relocate if I dont have to, it appears you didnt either, where did you get those IC tubes? I'm on the fence about a thru hull though, andd to me I have not seen the benefits yet.

    I prefer the Through hull only that you can hear yourself think..The Free flow resinate through the Hull with the Through hull its all projected out the back....

    I could get you a kit, second hand pipe, New thru hull tip
