Default Swept or Shotgun

I need help making this decision!! I'm sitting here with cash in hand trying to decide between black swept pipes or black shotgun pipes for my 09' 8Ball. I keep going back and forth. I figure with the shotguns punching the baffles out will be easier than on the swepts, but i guess I do sortov like the look of the swepts better. However, I still totally love the shotguns, and the nice thing about the shotguns is not as many people have them around here. Almost every victory I see around my area has swepts. What do you all think??? I like a really deep tone, but I also like loud.

I CAN'T DECIDE!!!!

The swepts are louder but I have a couple of alternatives for you.

Look at the exhaust from Conquest Customs. They have the Ground Pounders and the Octanes.

Then there is Cycleops with the Talons and Outburst.

Be sure to tell them Diamond sent you!

Kden,
I agree with Diamond that the swepts are louder. They are for sure. I have the black shotguns on my 07 8 ball. I'm not really into the look of the swepts for some reason and like you said everybody and their brother have them here too.

The shotguns are still pretty loud though, aren't they? Also, I would think with the baffles removed the shotguns would get a lot louder. I know that's what my brother-in-law did with his harley drag pipes (sorry to curse here and say Harley...=).

Diamond, thanks for the options. I'll spend some time looking through some of these!

Kden,
I think they bark pretty loud. I've had no shortage of head turns. That could be because I look so dang good on my bike too... hard telling.

Kden,
Very nice man, I don't think you will disappointed. All I can say is I like mine. Are you installing yourself or are you having someone else do it?

I'll be doing the install myself but the dealership has offered to do the re-flash for free.
