Default Cannister Silencers for DA 100

Hello all ,
I have heard that a Company in the US are making Cannister Mufflers for the DA`s . They are supposed to give better Throttling than the KS`s . At this moment I have KS`s on my DA 100 but the Throttle response between Idle and 1/2 is not very good .
Header lenth is approx 11"
as suggested by Mr DA himself . Prop being used is a MZ 26 x 10 . The Top end is getting better with each flight . Does anyone Know of this Company and can they give me a WWW Address
please .
Many Thanks from somebody who wants to learn to hang on the Helice .

Default RE: Cannister Silencers for DA 100

the 100 DA on the 60/70 size KS cans -runs well and header about 12"
I have setup this exact arrangement here.
FWIW --ANY engine which has a bad response off idle to midrange, typically has the tuned length to prop load mis matched .
I insist that any pipe setup I do -first goes on a test stand and the pipes are matched to the prop load.
inasmuch as you have headers hugging your carb -you may have flow problems - due to cowl/ header carb proximity - I can't tell from over here --
