I got my Jardine GP-1 for $55 shipped, with a minor scratch you can even see on the pipe. It sounds deeper now, and I do notice I slight increase in response and mid to high end, but IMHO megaphones really don't offer any noticeable increase in performance other than weight reduction. Heard this guys bike with a MJS header, y-pipe and cat delete to a MGP Growler, and thats the best sounding exhaust I have heard for the R6 in person so far.

Well I know on gsxr's they are really loud but if y'all YouTube that exhaust on teh r6 it doesn't seem that loud at all. Some ppl even argue that it's a waste of $ bc of how close it is to stock. But I will post a vid or y'all to see, I ordered it last night so it should be here in a day or two

I wouldn't use youtibe vids to base my decision on. I mean I can youtube a stock pipe turn the speakers up and it be really loud. also as stated obnoxiously loud pipes suck in group ride and on long trips.
