I watched youtube for som flappermod vids. didnt hear much difference though.

I was a bit sceptical, but I tried it on my R anyways.

took one zip tie and choked the hose. Like when you watering flowers with a hose and just want to stop the flow for a sec.

And I must say, there is a big difference in sound. Not higher sound. just cooler sound.
a 1 min job to get a much cooler sound. :D

does this improve the power on low rpms?

Americans have Rolling roaded this mod, and they have proven it gives gains of something like 5-10bhp and similar Torque gains.

I too can't see how this can be the case, but it does sound really cool when it's unplugged :)

Enjoy mate

Was the first mod I did to mine and I loved the enhanced sound. Didn't notice any power gains, but wasn't expecting any either!

I also did mine and my GF said that I have a blown exhaust,lol.

Sound nice though,

Don't think you get extra BHP, Just a nice sound.

Happy Days.
