Mancuso Harley-Davidson of Houston, Texas selects D&D Performance Exhaust because of v-twin performance, fit, finish and heat shields. D&D Performance Exhaust builds high-performance Harley-Davidson exhaust pipes.

When enthusiasts come into the Mancuso Harley-Davidson Dealership in Houston, Texas looking for more power for their Harley, Walter Birmingham, Assistant Parts Manager, recommends a performance package that includes exhaust pipes from D&D Performance Exhaust.

A common way to add ponies to a V-twin engine is to add a high flow air cleaner, jet kit or fuel injection module and a high-performance exhaust pipe. These three upgrades working together will show the biggest bang for the buck.

"We have four criteria in selecting a pipe that include performance, fit, finish and heat shields," said Birmingham. "If D&D didn't meet the performance standards we wouldn't recommend them. They are that good. They

consistently out perform Samson, Reinhart and Hooker."

Birmingham has indicated that Service Technician, Jeff Skipski, is on the dealership's dynamometer daily and acknowledges the difference between manufacturers. "As an example, we started with a stock Sportster that produced 60 HP at the crank," said Skipski. "We added a pipe, high flow air cleaner and a jet kit to the package. When finished running it through its paces we were making 78HP. That's a great bump in performance."

"Horsepower at the drive-ability range from idle to 4,500 rpm is the sweet spot for Harley riders," said Dave Rash, Mr. D&D. "You can see, feel and hear the difference immediately. Our pipes not only look good, they make the Harleys sound just the way they are supposed to."

D&D Performance Exhaust pipes are torture-tested on D&D's state-of-the-art in-house Super Flow Eddy Current Ram Air dynamometer. This is done in combination with the Super Flow Bench and the first in the industry, multi-cylinder Lambda Fuel Air Ratio Sensors. They are interfaced with the Dyno for real time meter and graph analysis. Each pipe is dyno tuned for maximum performance and sound.

About D&D Performance Exhaust

In 1972 David Rash, D&D Performance Exhaust Founder, had a problem. He couldn’t find the exhaust pipe he needed for his race bike. He knew that the proper exhaust for his engine configuration would give him an edge over his competition. However, no such pipe was available. So he did the only thing he could do… He fabricated his own performance pipe.

Thirty years and 250,000 pipes later D&D Performance Exhaust systems are some of the leading performance motorcycle exhaust systems in the world. Each pipe is built by a reputation of dyno tuned performance, high quality materials and consistent manufacturing excellence.

D&D Perfromance Exhausts are available from Custom Chrome dealers nationwide or from the factory at 817-834-8961,
