Is it possible to modify the F5 muffler box to make it louder without loosing HP? Or what is a cheap way to make it louder? I know you can't really gain HP with a pipe, I'm just after noise!

Don't make your sled louder unless you feel like making non-snowmobilers hate snowmobiles even more

loud sleds are bad for ALL sledders

best thing to do is save some money and buy an aftermarket can. They sound really good and they are not that LOUD. I got one on my 600 and it sounds great.

I don't know about the laws in other states, but in New York where I live the DEC is giving tickets for cans. The ticket isn't for the sound level either, it is for a modified exhaust system!

MI does have sound restrictions as well. If you are from Houghton & plan to ride there, I wouldn't do it, unless you want a ticket.

Inexpensive way to make things loud? Take the exhaust off, run it straight out the header!! Loud? Yes. Good for the sled? NO. Looks cool at night? Very!! *fire, fire, fire*

damn that sucks. Well in Maine there is laws for SOUND level restrictions. But they do not enforce them. . Owell. Well the way I see it is. They have to catch me first.

I agree with all of you how said "why louder" and "don't bother"
Just to clairify, I am asking for a friend of mine and that is what I told him, but I said I would ask.

Don't turn your sights on me I was just asking for a friend and I didn't think it was important whose sled it was, I don't even own a firecat. I ride stock anyway, and about my friend getting a headache, you know what they say, "No brains. No headache.":D
