I wish I had silent choice, it would have been nice to be able to listen to the radio when we were limping in yesterday.

Default keep em

we use silent choice made by Corsa on all of our boats here, however there are 2 types of silent choice, most guys worry that at speed the flaps will close and choke the motor, however you can have the option of having the flaps open all the time with the actuator closing them only when you want it closed!! those are the ones we use, however alot of people have the other one that is normally closed, using the acutator to hold them open. We dont have alot of areas here to idle, or near restaurants etc, big lakes, big ocean, so we have ours open for the most part, but very nice to be able to run the silent when coming into a harbour etc, but this way if the actuator fails, it stays OPEN not closed, so it wont choke the motor


Full Time Legal Exhaust Systems

QUICK & QUIET™ CORSA’s non-restrictive mufflers and silencers were developed for boats equipped with thru-hull, full-time open exhaust systems. They are the ideal solution for removing the harsh noise while retaining a distinctive rumble and maximum performance. Quick & Quiet™ systems include two patented transom-mounted ASR Silencer Tips and two ASR interior mufflers with a balance tube and are designed to retrofit existing full-time, thru-hull applications.

LOUD for me and since you are at a condo keep it down. It will also help avoid the MO. water patrol. I am redoing my headers for dry.

I'd go with the silent choice, especially since it's already in the boat. And, as was said before, the MO water patrol might leave you alone if they can't hear you as much. Your new boat is going to attract attention without being loud!!

LOL
Up your tailpipes. That's as loud as I can make it with that Silent Thunder still on. It will be coming off, soon as I can spring for a new set of "thru-hulls". The originals are only like 2 inches long. A few people actually complimented me on the sound, thank you.

I have the Corsa Q&Q II on my boat. It's the sh*t. Makes those long no wakes zones more enjoyable.
