I am curious about the construction of the stock cans. They appear to be straight-shot cans with dB killers inserted into the ends. Can anyone confirm this?
I thought a cheap way of adding hp would be to remove the inserts from the stockers thereby "derestricting" the cans. (Of course it would be wise to buy a second set before attempting this type of surgery)

Aah, I think it's been a long time since this question was first asked. I can't remember what the answer was but I'm thinking it was something along the lines of:
"why waste those expensive stock cans without trying some fine aftermarket ones first?"
I could be wrong of course.

Ah, Bef. You're no fun! I bought a stock RSV exhaust and oil pan to go on the Falco when I want something a little different. I cut the stock RSV can up and removed the very restrictive steel filter (removing approx. 5 pounds), leaving me with an expansion chamber with 2 inlets and 2 outlets. I just need to find someone to weld it back together for me.
That is what piqued my curiosity about the Falco stockers.
As for those "expensive" stock cans; they may be expensive to buy new, but, since they are less desireable compared to aftermarket, I can pick up a second hand set for less than $100. This, in my eyes, makes them pretty cheap. But then again, I can rationalize just about anything that will make me happy.

Well, I thought the cheapest way to gain extra hp and especially torque was to get the cans, eprom and more importantly the airkit. Haven't regretted it since and I'm on a tight budget here.
If you do find more than I did or even the same for $1000, do let me know!
