Just watched a video on Youtube were a guy puts a stock teryx on the dyno and makes 26HP then just takes off the tip and it makes 33HP! pretty good gains for a free mod.

I've heard conflicting reports on that. One says 7hp another says 2.5. I saw the same video clip. There is a exhaust tip on ebay you can purchase to replace the spark arrester. Looks good and lets the exhaust flow free.

Whatever the real numbers are, the point is, you open these things up so they can breath and they are going to make some H.P.:yahoo::pepper1:

A friend of ours dyno's his stocker and concluded on his particular dyno that it made 3 mor HP by taking the spark arrestor out. Different dyno's will have different readings, but I think 2 to 3 is very believable...

i had one do the same thing. took me forever to pull it out and not mess up the threads. i did feel a little increase after i got it off though. and the vdi woke it up big time.

I pulled my spark arrestor out in Glamis since I knew i'd need all the power i could get. I think it sounded better and I noticed a power boost. The first day I couldn't get up olds with my wife and 2 kids in the back we would almost make it and then i'd have to turn. But the next day took our spark arrestor and had enought power to make it to the top and I did it 3 times just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Going up by myself no problem even with spark arrestor in or out.
