I used an OEM muffler much like that as a baseline for dyno testing my systems. The difference between OEM and my straight through muffler on a 300HP test engine was 12WHP. That doesn't sound like much because it is only one aspect of the improvements. Throttle response improved, boost threshold was lowered several hundred RPM, and hearing the turbo is incredible! The driving experience is much improved. You need to try one out, even if it isn't mine, to experience the greatest benefit: perma-grin.
