I dont think you would see any noise reduction.

I have a sound surpression system on my boat that at idle
lowers the sound. It basicaly redirects the intake air through
supression ducts.

Gerry - Your turbine guys are in my back yard. Did you work a trade on your piston motors? And are we not talking about insurance?

KNOT-RIGHT thanks for the info.. alot of good post.. we have to get together and party sometime...

all i have to add is when running t-53 you can hit them as hard as you want and for as long as you want with no worries.. unlike running 1400+ hp gas power boats.. with those you always have to worry " is this the time they are going to POP"
