Nice work on that RZR. I'm doing quite a bit to my '15 XP1k and have taken a few notes.

If you have any questions let me know. I am about to build a new stretch chassis for mine with some suspension changes and then sell off the old chassis and bodywork once I move the parts over. Stay tuned

Lets talk mufflers...

I was hoping to hear good things about the Supertrapp as I have no experience with them. But you imply its a bit too loud?

I need to shed some weight, a lot of weight as my cagework, bed, bumpers have gotten to be more than I expected. And, some performance gains would be nice. But, I don't want to increase the sound level by too much more than the stock muffler. What are your thoughts on that flowmaster regarding the above?

Also, why did you choose to take your Supertrapp back to bending around the rear of the frame instead of pointing rearward as you first had it? With the addition of cage/bed to the rear of my RZR I'm considering a muffler that runs inline with the header straight out the back so I may use the area where the factory muffler once was for cargo/storage.

Made any progress on the stretch chassis?

I just stumbled across this thread by accident and realized that you are a friend of mine's next door neighbor, small world I guess.

Cool RZR build, I'll have to send a link to my cousin. He has the RZR sickness too...

The supertrapp is good but it was too loud for me (2x stock by ear). The flowmaster is very close to the stock noise level but it has a slightly different sound. No weight savings with the flowmaster. Lots with the supertrapp but nothing compared to all the weight you have added. I changed course with the rear after I decided I didn't want any rear overhang so I had to turn the exhaust like stock. Straight back only works if you add at least a foot to the rear of the car.

No progress on a stretch yet. Still weighing options and one is to go super light weight single seater as the rest of the family has lost interest so it is back to me. Another option is trading for a Jeep. My cousin has one in the middle of a 5.3 swap that needs finishing and he likes the RZR and has driven it quite a bit. The current chassis is roll over proven from his last trip in it. 1-1/2 with no damage except a dent in the roof panel from a large rock. Stock cage and body would have been destroyed!

I just purchased SuperATV gen 2 portals for the build and I have a four seater chassis core loaded on the jig to start on the new car. It will be a 2 seater on the long wheelbase chassis with a full cab and heater so I can run year round comfortably. Lots more parts to acquire and with a truck that is operational again, I should make good progress this winter. I will start a new thread for that build in a little while.
