Still Pondering Exhaust

It's on my list as it's not that much more than a SS Muzzy setup.  Shipping
across the pond was quoted at $137 which isn't bad.  Is the Motad exhaust
less weight by much over the stocker, that's one of my desires.  Also, read
the Motad has a "decibel killer" which is removable for track days and I
understand noise laws are pretty tough in the EU.

I have the motad nexus full system on my 95 , it's great quality &  
runs happy on the standard tune . Noise is not that different to  
standard. Like Steve, I'm not sure about availability over the water  
but if you can get it then it gets a 5 out of 5 from me!
