Default dually exhaust

just wanted to show the dually exhaust i made for my fun-kart/beater!
its on a Honda 5.5 gx160 engine w/few mods!
i used a 1971 honda ct70 pipe w/ head flange on it. they had the same bolt spacing (1-3/4 in) apart. just had to drill out a tad bit to fit over the Honda exhaust studs. i also used old gasket on engine side and new home made one from brass on pipe side to get a good seal.
i used a set of old bent handle bars off a Kawasaki 650 motorcycle that were lying around for pipes and 1-into-2
this is what i got with a day and playing with a mig welder and a grinder!
fun !fun! fun!
it sounds super great and not loud until you hit the gas and rpms build up, it also has more torq on low end i think!!!! (i did a hill climb on a hill i never got up before at low speeds)
i dont have a dyno or any cool measuring devices to give any numbers sorry.
but it did improve alot on the low end somehow and top end stayed just about the same (except it sounds way cooler now)if you must know its around 43 mph next to a car, i dont have a tach or speedo yet but soon!
ill get a video and post a link for all to hear tonight!
until then heres a few pics of it
