What about this Mod?
I took a 98 GP1200 waterbox i had laying around and cut it about 1 1/2" above the (what is it) 4 or 5 welds all the way around with a grinder. Then looking down in the box there were five tubes that ran down and a flat plate that covers everything else. I took a 1/2" drill and drilled 5 holes (marked in red). Then had it welded back up. Note: be sure to mark both sides of the cut for alignment. I was looking for a little more sound and more flow. I haven't tested it yet but was going to compare it to the 1100 waterbox, baffled and power spray TDR water box.

I don't know man, it looks interesting. I have never experimented with aftermarket or modified waterboxes. You seem to be thinking outside the box, I just hope it turns out to be worth your trouble.
Also, how loud do you want this animal to be? I love a nasty sounding motor as much as the next guy. However, I can't imagine wanting to hear much more growl than my single pipe emits.

The whole mod plus the waterbox cost me nothing. It was free thats why i did it. I dont want anything loud. I am looking for a nice growl. My stock waterbox sounds too stock(no growl). But the TDR waterbox(spray) is realy loud. The baffled TDR waterbox sounds ok but too buzzy bee for me. Reminds me of them rice burning too fast too furious hondas with 900 lbs of fiberglass, airplane wing, and a weedwacker for an engine. I just thought i would get a good deeper growl and by putting the holes in it, would make it a bit louder but not as loud as a TDR. Not to mention that it would let the pipes breathe a little better. I cant get my hands on a 1100 box but i was looking at the pics of one, and i think it wont fit with the tripple pipe in there.

be prepared to loss some rpm unless you stinger the pipe(s) or the waterbox exit.

. I am glad your not a fan of the "ricer cars". Those type are a different breed all together. The fast and the furious movie series has ruined an entire generation.

EVO, I understand and hear you completely. Here in Texas we have all breeds and all walks of life. I just get sick of seeing punks driving a beat up, half painted, 1995 Honda Civic with a coffee can exhaust, thinking they are the chit. These type always have their hats cocked to the side with the hellified gangsta lean. The nice ricer cars are few and far between in my opinion.
