Exhaust

A couple of friends and I are getting ready for grudge races coming up at our local drag track and I was wondering if by removing my cans and running straights if that would increase my horsepower or not?

Nope...I'm gonna hazard a guess and say that you will most likely lose power. The exhaust is designed to keep the motor quiet obviously, but to also help scavenge exhaust gases out and to help draw air/fuel mixtures into the combustion chamber.

Harley can run straight pipes because:

A) they are slower than molasses in January

B) they make like 45 HP

C) they have an engine that is not as advanced as a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower
