Heck yeah! A Dom is basically for low to mid range torque, but they sound SO cool! A JetPro, on the other hand sounds really nice when you gas it!

YES noise = POWER , the side dom from DDM is pretty good for low noise but restricts power . When i cut the silencer off from mine and had a look inside the silencer the noise reducing cone was a solid plane cone WITHOUT the little holes like you get in silencer cones from nitro silenced pipes that HAS got the holes on the silencer cone . perhaps if DDM put holes in the silencer cone it would proberly give it more power but still with less noise .

Well either way if it's super loud I don't want that on there anyways.
I will just have to read more forums and see what guys say about there pipes and the noise level.
I would like to be able to run it in my neighborhood with out people wanting to kill me.

Just get a muffler for the end of your tuned pipe, I know you guys are short on room but you should be able to fine one that works for you
