Yes they do.

We are fortunate that down here we don't get hassled at all for runnng open exhaust. I just dumped my "Silent Thunder Box" on my 311 Formula and just love both the new look and new sound.

Formula,

Did you notice any change in your top speed? Seems like the Silent Thunder was one of the few low restriction muffling systems out there.

We had to remove the Silent Thunder from my bosses formula because he was getting water reversion in his engine. He has 500 h.p.'s in it and picked up 2 miles per hour and no reversion

I have not made a "balls to the wall" run yet. Will do so next time out. First time out I took it easy and just let it get used to being on the water again and making sure everything was working right.

I did notice that the midrange seems stronger, but that's a "seat of the pants" feeling. I will tell you that in the water, that Outlaw is about an inch and a half higher out of the water when docked. Between removing the Silent Thunder Box, and removing the old "cast iron anchor" Merc. exhaust units and going with the EMI Thunder aluminun system, I lost over five hundred pounds right at the props. If you have a swim platform and get two 250 lb. guys to stand on the platform at once, you will notice the back of your boat go down a little. Well mine went "up" that little. 311's are assheavy boats, and it's like I shortened the "X" demension a little and I run Hydo Quad IV props, which are stern lifting. Between the weight loss, the higher the boat is in the water now, and the new exhaust system I am hoping to see 4mph more out of her anyway. Will let you know.
