Well it was $1047 for the system, plus $319 for the PCIII with map already loaded. About three hours of my time. The Final result: SSSSWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTT!!!!!. It's not very often I'm real happy with the things I buy or the way they perform. But this set-up is great, it has sound, performance and looks, ***** Daddy has a sweet ride. :upthumb:

Bulldogger,

Welcome to the club, they sure are sweet. I did a quick MPG check and I was getting 34 mpg now 32mpg. More juice = more power.



:-D :-D

rktmn3,
beauty of it all no back fires. Hard on the throttle and then shut her down, and all I get is a little rumbling. One of the guy's I ride with has a Honda VTX 1800 with a power commander and Bubba pipes and its always backfiring. The map from dyno jet seems pretty dead on. This bike with this set-up makes it look the way it should have been. I'll check mileage on this tank and see how its changed. I loved everything about the bike on the test ride but waited 7 months to buy it because I hated the exhaust set-up. :-D

I sure would love to hear that set up. I dislike the way the rocket sounds..The hi pitch whine is louder than the exhaust.

I don't want it too loud...but would like just a bit of deep rumble..
Thinking about doing the cat delete pipe..Just to see if that would help

Oh well...Maybe one day I will hear one

Joeyf,
Go into FAQ on Rocket chat and sroll down to the jardine sound byte. Turn speakers on sort of loud and play the sound byte its pretty acurate on my computer. :-D

Bulldogger,

Yeah! The map was right on, no backfire for me either. Should would love to hear it with a blower or turbo on it, with these pipes.

rktmn3,
I'm wondering if the turbo would fit with these pipes? I may consider putting one on. I gotta be honest I really don't feel the bike needs it. Also 1/4 mile times weren't that much faster were they?? :-D

Bulldogger,

My experience with a turbo is none. But I had a mustang that I put a blower on. The difference was very noticeable and I could feel the increase big time. My quarter mile time only decreased by 1 second. But 1 second is equal to about (I am guessing here) 3 car lengths. Because I was traveling 101 mph at the end.

With the Rocket III and a turbo your going to be going 130+ so your 1 second will cover more than 3 car lengths.

From my reading the Rockets best time so far is 11.2 @ 118 mph in the quarter mile. Adding a turbo will drop it into the low 10's, like 10.2. I used a calculator to estimate this number and the less weight of having two pipes and not three. :-D :-D

Hey guys
The Rocket is a low compression engine. you can spray the breath out of it.

How about a 150 shot of NOS. that should knock a few tenth off

These are car drag race approximates:

.15-.20 of a second = 1 car length 1-second difference=5 car lengths.

On most cars, 10 additional HP reduces 1/4 mile times by -.10. and 1 mph.

Removal of 50-100lbs of weight reduces 1/4 mile times by -.10. but may not effect miles per hour

To reduces 1/4 mile times by -1 second would require and increase of more or less 100 hp and should be followed by a subsequent 10 +/- mph increase.

ON THE ROCKET, any additional power will bring higher miles per hour, but only slightly better track times unless the track/tires are very sticky.

That short first gear will do a lot of spinning through the first gear/second unless a stickier compund is developed. Some blown R3's may find it better to start in second...

150 shot of nitrous is HUGE for a 2.3 liter engine, regardless of compression! But, a 50 Nos shot would last all day long, and mayebe a 75 hp NOS shot. Remeber-NOS and boost, even if comparable numbers wise are NOT the same.

NOS is way more violent on the drivetrain & internals, but is way cheaper than a blower-which is why it is appealing.
