"Easy to install"? I tried briefly to remove the rubber exhaust hose from the engine's riser and it's really really stuck! They have only been on there a little more than a year too. Mind you, this was during the winter and even though it's inside, the temps were still around 40. What's the trick to removing exhaust hoses? Also, the storage shop's mechanic cautioned me that I'd lose quite a bit of WOT RPM's with the silencer's exhaust flow restriction since my 496's really like to exhale freely. Kinda gave me pause... I've run into some prop issues (they are out being dialed in at the present), so I don't want more than one performance variable done at a time. Once I know what the engine's normal performance is with the props I will then look at doing this "EASY" install - that is, if someone wants to share how to make it easy. Sorry guys - no feedback till then!
