Depends on use of the baffles but indeed with no baffles the left side gets most flow, using one of the more restrictive packed baffles would shift that to the other tip.

Brian i see in your latest RF photo your still running with the windblocker installed, did you ever get a chance to check wind turbulence sound levels without it?

I like the idea, will check that when the wife let's me have more than a few minutes in the car.

Thanks! That's pretty much what I figured, just wanted to be sure.

Well, finally did some driving with the blocker removed....and I too prefer it gone. Have not checked with DB meter but I am leaving out the wind blocker for now. Did date night in the car in open top mode Saturday night and much enjoyed the drive to and from our Dinner destination, etc.

Hopefully enough RF owners will agree that no windblocker is the way to go, and someone will come up with nice set of hole plugs for the blocker attachment points.

I picked up my Soul Red Club RF with the B&B package last Friday and have been experimenting with the wind blocker. With the top down and windows up or down, I feel more wind in the hair, and I like that. However, my wife prefers less wind, so the wind blocker goes back in.

I've deleted the sound tube, added the stubby antenna and mulling over the exhaust question. Trying not to rush things :)

If it helps any I have a Launch RF and a wife, modification so far: stubby antenna, cowl brace, 5mm wheel spacers, black McGuard lug nuts, pearl ball shift knob, and twin-tip Super-Q muffler. When I deleted the sound tube I felt I needed a little more sound back so I installed the larger mid-pipe. I'm happy now and have received no complaints from my wife. Next up sway-bars!

"I've deleted the sound tube" Poor sound tube. I think everyone removes it because of the name. They should call it Intake Helmholtz Resonator and add a shiny chrome bit for looks. :)

Yes, the RF has our shorty header. Many months of testing the new Max Midpipe, final is on the car now. Muffler changes by the day as I continue to test variation. Yes, Orange Virus Tune.
