Sorry to poke my nose on the off-topic discussion, but I tend to disagree (respectfully as you said) with the above statement. One doesn't need two cars with the same spec- it isn't difficult, but impossible to get two cars to the same spec in all and sundry aspects. A dyno test is executed only with a single car (working as a control). In this example, one first needs to dyno the car w/o the headers to establish what is known as a "baseline". Then the exhaust system (headers) is bolted on, and another pull is made. The before and after figures can then be recorded, graphs overlayed (if need be) and the power/tq figures compared and contrasted.

This is the only way to establish gains from a performance mod. Of course all this assuming that compensation, SAE correction etc. is accurately accounted for.

How about shoving more glass wool into the end can, I guess that might help to some extent. Did that for my RX's exhaust when it was too noisy.
Could you tell me how much of a difference can i expect from filling it with glass wool ?

It does decrease the amount of loudness but you will still have the mild hum. I would infact suggest you to go back to Raj and explain to him how you want your exhaust note to be altered with not much loss in performance. Am sure they will either mute it accordingly using glass wool or probably do some other alterations or build another custom one. In fact, I was reading elsewhere on the forum that on longer usage of these endcans, there is a deposit of Carbon with causes the sound to increase. So probably you could even try getting your endcan cleaned to remove the carbon deposit. I would suggest you to visit Raj and get the exhaust altered according to your taste.

Looks like the rusted metal chipped off the inner walls and is accumulated there.
