Hi Dave

Great to see a picture, I had numerous conversations with him when ordering my pipe.

Got my new Traid West Muffler installed on my 74 1.8/2056 with SSi's Sunday.

WOW, This thing sounds great. Was running a Bursch (I even hand ground the ports. Bursch ports are not matched and full of globy welds) The Triad West is perfecly finished and is really clean.

My seat of the pants Dyno shows remarkable torque and power gains. Engine revs so easily now all the way to the red line now.

Really pulls hard up the hills.

Sound is nice an low, very mellow tone.

I went with the turned down passenger side pipe and Dave installed an 02 bung for my AFR testing.

Great product very happy. Highly recommended.

Thanks Dave ! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif)

And remind me the best way to contact him- I remember that being an issue before.
He either doesn't answer his phone or email...

Contact info please...

I looked at two other World members' cars over the weekend. Oddly, both were equipped with Triads. Impressive looking units, nice sounding too.

Are these still actually being produced? I called him probably 8-10 months ago and ordered a muffler. At that time he said that my order made three to be shipped to Denver. None ever made it. After a few calls we were told that the business was closed and for sale.

So do I. Love the look and exhaust note, but I'm looking into baffles to tame a good bit of resonance at 2500-3500 RPM.

I also attempted to buy one of these about 6 months ago and talked to the owner. He said he was very ill and could not work. I have no update after that.

I have a -6 2-in/2-out unit in storage as well - very nice - I got it for potentially putting my car back to a quieter streetable config someday or maybe to pass sound at Laguna Seca.

--Edit-- Replied too quick, just saw the other thread about the emails after replying here.

Anyone else get a strange email from him this morning? I have a feeling his email may have gotten hacked.

Yes, I got a strange email from him this morning.. about the flu, etc.. we don't know each other beyond a small correspondence from a couple years back - so I bet he's been hacked.
