They won't give you any power just change the sound.

This is an excellent artical and it made my decision to go with the muzzy with jets, I have been playing with offroad machines for years mostly baja and these tech articals have taught me things and reinforced things that I suspected. Thanks todd. I will most likely be getting new wheels/tires from 3step soon.

I thought the Hunterworks exhaust test showed a 1 to 3 hp gain by just changing the exhaust tip on the stock exhaust. Good HP gain for $40.

I did show that and the comparisons were against the stock pipe with not tip. So if a slip on gave you 2.5 to 3 HP for $350 over stock muffler with tip why would you do that when you could remove the tip for free and have the same gain?

Buying aftermarket tip does nothing except change the look and maybe change tone.

Actually a little over 4 which is 12% which is very good.

You will feel this. Point is there is nothing else bolt on you can do to give it to you and if you go inside motor you will need it for sure.

well said! i just cant get over how much money these guys are getting for exhaust systems. i have 5 inch ss exhaust on my dodge 3500 and didnt pay no where near what they get for the teryx. i am a dealer for trinity racing and my cost is still way high. what i dont understand is the 4 wheeler exhaust is cheaper then the side x side stuff put have the same motor.
