theres a loaded question!.......I will say a Fountain is almost impossible to beat in performance vs price and they dont make Scarabs anymore.....
I will also say that a twin 29 Scarab is my nemisis at the lake.......I finally saw one out one time although we were both badly loaded down with people and gear.....like 5 and 6 people each!.......he steadily inched away.......talked to him later he had the 300hp FI motors and I have the 270hp carb motors with a zillion hrs....its all good
noticably picked up some low end with the Rev exhaust and about another 500rpm on top,(the Scarab race was pre Rev ) Im real happy with them, Id buy them again in a heartbeat.
where are you guys from?

We are from Utah! Thanks for your insight on the Fountain. My wife is happy....Maybe I should save my money for a Fountain instead of putting it towards an exhaust system.

No doubt! They would be my next choice of exhaust system!

They hold up to the constant heat cycles and vibration much better than headers IMHO....
