That exhaust system...

I happened to browse through my RC51 gallery of pics I had downloaded over the past 6 months. Since I own one of these beauties now, I am wondering what exhaust this one is. I've got a Jardine RT-One currently - Would short cans like in the pic decrease performance?
Cheers for any input.

Ok thanks. I definitely want to keep the dual pipes setup... If I chopped my Jardine RT-One cans to a similar length, would I lose performance?
I read a few times they are long for a reason. Then I look at other systems like the Ladybird GP cans, they don't seem to have an issue with performance?

You can run a wide variety of full exhaust systems, or slip-ons. You just need to have some type of programmable fuel mapping system to accommodate the different exhausts. PowerCommander III USB is the most popular, but they now offer a PC-V with auto tune and other add on peripherals. Bazzaz is another choice for fuel management.

Yes that should be on my shopping list as well. Probably once everything else is done...
