Jett pipe or Ultrathrust will produce quite a bit more power than the tower muffler, they are also much more durable, but quite a bit more money also.

Don't forget to change the bearing.

I run the 46pro with a Performance Specialties Ultrathrust Muffler and a 9/7apc on a Shrike .40. (6 years now) Turns about 16k. "DON'T NEED NO STINKIN BEARING!"

We tested that exact combination a couple of years back. The Tower muffler did add about 800 rpm using a 10x6 and the JettStream and UT added close to 1400 rpm. The Tower muffler is cheap but I did see a few come apart in flight, losing the back half. We ran the stock bearings without problem.

vicman:

You can almost tell who flys off grass and who has a paved strip. Our field is paved asphalt that after 25 years is getting very rough. A belly landing aircraft will scrape its guts off in very short order, so we don't see many wing things except electrics here. Would love a grass field area, but no water around. What each of us view as fast varies a bunch. 125 mph is ho-hum to me, may be super fast to another less experienced flyer, or older guy. 150 to 200 will get my attention real quick, but do not see much of that unless you go to a Q-500-F40 race. Regardless, ENJOY/ Bro #119
