I looked into this as well because some reports from individuals actually seeing a small increase in power with this can ( 2-3 hp's ). I emailed Bender USA and called Bender Canada and both mentioned as much as 8 - 10 hp's in the mid-range...
That's when all credibility was lost as far as I am concerned.

This may end up a great product and any can that will be quiet, loose weight and gain you possibly 2-3 hp's is a good buy as far as I am concerned, but to have any Rep suggesting 8 - 10 as a possibility, made me hold off the purchase at this point. Since the production was "just about to be sold out, better get one now" there should be plenty of real world reports coming out soon. I will wait for those...

Just my $ .02

The bender silencer I dynoed sounded very similar to stock, even in a concrete dyno room. A nicer tone but not too loud, probably the quietest aftermarket silencer Ive ever heard. Made 3 hp on dynotechs superflow dyno on my sled. IMO very high quality compared to most of the "stinger type" junk out there.
