    I have this Vance & Hines exhaust.
    It sounds nice, but I like louder.

    My question is: Can the baffles be taken out of this exhaust, and if so, is it worth it.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    There is an inverse relationship between loud and low end torque. You need back pressure which the baffles provide.

    Yes but you will loose low end power without the baffles.
    You can buy torque cones though to help with that.

    I have that exhaust also. Came without any baffles. I didn't like the sound. To loud for me. Bought the baffle from the manufacturer. Still loud but sounds better.
