Default TGN X-Can

Anyone have one fitted?

Not expecting Jetpro performance but is it much better than the stock exhaust?

Hate the look of most exhausts, they look like the pictures of dissected rectums from school biology tests.

I put an X-Can on a Zenoah G260. It's running on my Firehammer. An X-Can will definitely add some power to the low and mid. It also sounds really sweet. The quality of the X-Can is also really nice. I have had problems getting silicon extension tubing to work because the stingers are too close together. Maybe there is a newer version where the stingers are spaced out like on the Baja 5B X-Can.

Mark (TGNMan) are you reading this?

To be honest, though, I wish I would have gone with a pipe now. Hearing everybody talk about wheelies and all the extra low end and mid-range makes me drool... [&:]

Well I have a pipe on my Firehammer and it won't wheelie. I'm not complaining as my car runs excellent but just letting you know mine won't wheelie.

wyd, is your engine stock except for the pipe? If so, how much better did it make your engine run?

Mine is all stock except the Jetpro pipe I put on it. For me it is worth the money. Acceleration and topspeed are noticeably better and the pipe sounds and looks great. From reading I don't recal seeing anyone not happy about putting this pipe on the Firehammer or FG cars.

The main problem with the X can in the uk is the noise it generates, it is considerable, and may cause you problems with the sites you use. Other than that the pipe is excellent quality and does a good job in a small and compact manner. If you bash in places where noise isn't too much of an issue then the X can is a good choice and value for money.

Just my opinion,

Thanks [8D]

Noise isn't a problem as the car is usually run on farmland in the middle of nowhere.

Someone told me you can block one stinger if you need to run quieter?

The X-can is no louder than the unsilenced pipes out there. [8D]
