Does unbolting the muffler from the stock exhaust cause a drop in power? I figured since it was a reverse-flow muffler it would increase the flow and increase power to remove it, but I tried it today and I thought I felt a loss in power. It could be my imagination.

If you know for sure, post it. Don't guess.

it could be giving you more backpressure, because there is less pipe for theexaust fumes to travel, and your engine could be pumping alot.. ALOT of exaust... and the stock pipe is so small... it could make bakcpressure.

or just get 6 flat washers, stack em up against the flange bolts, 3 on each side, give or take a half inch gap, then run it, muffler is still there, but just with an exhaust leak, sounds deep, and it doesn't have that whiny high rev sound, like on most hondas, just a suggestion........

well at first, the "power loss" is really at take-off, loosing back pressure, means loosing low-end torque, and this gap thing was just a suggestion, better than unbolting and ridding off the muffler completely....but it's just a suggestion...........
