    Free Flow Exhaust vs Full Exhauste Kit

    what is the difference between the free flow exhaust tubing and the Full exhaust kit or rear exhaust?? I been reading up on both of them and it seems they both go in the same location and replaces the stock exhaust, but the tubing looks different . one looks like a 90 degree bent tube and the other one looks different. and one has a fitting on it that something plugs in to it and the free flow is just a pipe. do I need both or I can get away with just one of them???? thanks

    Free flow goes in the stock exit minus the resonator. Plus, easy install, no hull cutting, cheap. Minus, Sound is really annoying at 3-4K. Rear exhaust plus, sounds better, looks cool, more room in hull. Minus, little more pricey, cutting hole in hull, need exhaust tip. Performance, won't be much different.

    so I can get away with just buying a stainless steel pipe and just replace the resonator correct??

    Yep, 2 1/2" pipe with a 90 degree bend will replace the resonator. No need to buy the kit. Again though, 3-4k gets real loud with the tunnel.

    Go thru hull. There again you can make it up. Just need the tip and a block off to plug the old exit.

    Thru hull>freeflow the drone is annoying. I will say though i have done everything to my ski and installing the Thruhull was the most pain in the dick thing i did. You will need patience if its on a newer ski.

    Yes you can I saw zero gain in performance from the freeflow to the thruhull. The drone at 3k from the freeflow does get annoying though
