Micron Serpent Exhaust

Are any of you using Micron's Serpent exhaust system?
If so, can you assist me with some information?

stock engine (exhaust/usb)
-hp gain
-tq gain

modified engine (head,cams, higher compression)
-hp gain over stock
tq gain over stock


I am thinking of switching from my Tsukigi exahust to a Micron Serpent. I am trying to determine if it's worth the money.

Thanks

My understanding is Micron went out of business years ago. What is still being sold is left over stock. I looked at them about a year ago because some are being dumped at super cheap prices, but decided against them.

I don't think Micron was ever known for big hp increases.

FYI, you can get a serpent system (minus Micron can) for $199.
If that's not a good deal, I don't know what is.
I haven't got mine on and tuned yet, but when I do, I will share what info I have.

Used a Micron Serpent full system on a 2001 Hondoodle 929 and it performed very good with a downloaded Micron map at Power Commander.com. Smooth low end, crisp midrange, and a willingness to make hp in the upper rpm range.

serpent exhaust

I am a drag racer...

potential mods are:
-head porting
-Kawi race cam(intake) or set of webcams
-existing exhaust is a Tsukugi full system(looking to swap with the serpent)

I just wanted to know if the exhaust is worth swapping out.
The asking price is 310, but I saw on the forum they are running around 200 (where can I get a new one for 200.00)

Im sure the tsukigi system is better quality than the micron. I used to have the tsukigi and i've seen the micron system on your first gen. Use the money for your motor as others have stated.
