Slip-on vs full system power characteristics
I have an opportunity to, for the same price, get a slip-on from a manufacturer that I really want, or a full-system from a manufacturer that is all right I guess (for my '03 600RR). I'll leave the manufacturers names anonymous so people's biases/preferences don't come into play here.
My issue is, I ride track so HP on top is welcome, but I also ride street so I don't want to lose much low-mid range power, and a full system might hurt a little in the low-mid range (correct?).
Since I can't find dyno charts for the full-system, my question is, approx. what RPM would a full system start giving comparable gains over stock like a slip-on, and then at approx. what RPM would a full system start to outshine the slip-on? If I end up w/ a slip-on I'd probably heat wrap the OEM headers, but who knows if that's good for any considerable HP.
