Have the same question ! Would be nice with the introduction of a new motor to also offer a Pitts style muffler for this engine type.

If you read the tower listing, the gt15 comes with a e4040 muffler. That's the same one that is used with the 75ax / 95ax. Wouldn't that mean that any Pitts muffler for the 75 or 95 can be used with this engine?

Actually, quiteness isint much of a concern at our field as yet. However weight is. My thought process is that a pitts muffler wont be lighter than stock. So the total weight is going to be 900g which is heavier than the more powerful dle20. So I am going to hold out & not buy it
