American Custom products, thoughts?

Has anyone tried the American Custom exhaust products? Just found their website: www.americancustom.com and the prices seem pretty good. American Iron Magazine did a write up and install/dyno of their products and numbers all look good. Their products are stock Harley items: headers and mufflers that have been reworked. The headers have had the Cat removed with a new"Power" chamber installed and the slipon mufflers have had the baffles reworked and feature replaceable baffles so you can tune to your sound preference. Also the interesting feature is you can send in your stock items to be "reworked" or you can order the "new" items and return your stock items for credit of $100 for the header and $75 for a set of slipons.
Just curious as to if anyone has had any experience with these products. I think might start out with a set of slipons as I am mainly just wanting to get some "Harley sound" out of my 2013 FLTRX.

Subscribed. Considering Fuel Moto 2-1-2 head pipes (ceramic coated) and having the stock mufflers reworked by American Custom Exhaust as I like the look of the stock system but need to eliminate some of the heat from the stock head pipe.

Had their header pipe installed on my Street Glide at Delmarva Bike Week. Catless stock header. $200 installed. Good deal and saved me the headache of installing.

I have the factory slip ons that were reworked. No complaints and decent sound. I considered having the headers done but gutting the cat myself was simple and free. If you cant weld, i would imagine it would only cost about 20 bucks to have it welded. Saves you $180 bucks on the headers at least. Would love to know what the "power chamber" is though.

Yes I would be interested in your slipons. What are you asking for them? Send me a message with more details. Thanks.

Had the AC slip-ons and catless header installed at Americade 2 years ago...got 2 sets of baffles and the black end caps. Drilled out the second baffle with six rows of 11/16 holes to give me three options...stock baffle quiet but louder than stock...drilled baffle plenty loud enough when you come on to her but quiet at idle...and no baffles loudest but not obnoxious...good deep rumble.

I have put about (25,000 kms)16,000 miles on the bike with this exhaust with no issues...for the money it is a tough system to beat and maintains the stock appearance with the EPA stamp on the mufflers
