I just got back from Racers Edge and talking to John, and got some of my build going! I am going to be getting the DASA duals, MegaCycle x4 cam, an 11:1 SB CP piston, HD valve springs, and Dyno tune! Work is going to start on it Friday, so I can have it back for my Glamis trip Presidents Day weekend. He is also going to try to hook me up with a used set of SkatTrak Haulers. The only thing I need to do is find somebody who is wanting to get rid of their FCI. Anybody? lol I leave for South Korea in March for six months, and will be finishing up more stuff after my return (P&P, +2 valves, and +3 TB). He is estimating between the 60 and 65hp range for the stuff I am getting now. Does that sound about right?

John is good people, and a really friendly guy in person. their turn-around rate is exceptional.

Yeah man 60-65 sounds about right! I'm at 68.44 hp with my build but I gained a few pony's when I milled the head out in my shop haha! How come your going with the dasa's? I won a set of those last year but sold them instead of my barkers. I didn't like the way the cans are painted and the tips are chromed. Chrome and paint never last on exaust parts like that. They'll end up chipping and lookin like shit.

Everybody and their mom has the "big 3" duals (Monster, Barkers, DMC) and I wanted to try something different. Plus I like how they mount with the tabs and come with the black cans stock. My friend has a DASA pipe on his 450R and has had no issues with it. If the paint goes to shit, I can always powder coat it down the road. John does seem like a great guy with some great prices on their products. I look forward to doing buisiness with him more down the road. Plus it helps that he is only 10 minutes from my house. :)

Sure thing Spider! Do people generally let you video tape them when they do your dyno run?
