Which 2 into 1 is better White Brothers e series or Supertrapp?
Doc said that the E Series was probably one of the best performing pipe ever, they can stll be found new but it gets harder everyday. Porker Industries bought out White Bros...maybe they'll bring'em back? The Supertrapp's a decent pipe too but if I had a choice...E Series.

When Kerry Bryant left the WB things went downhill (KB was the R&D guru there and teamed with former SuperTrapp people to design the E series disc)
Soon after, Dan White sold out to Tom, then Tom sold out and that was the nail in the coffin for WB.

The E series disc was a decent copy of the engineering that Dr Moller designed into the original disc however, several intricate areas were looked over in the WB design that did not allow the specific scavenging that the Trapp disc did.
All in all the E series was a good headpipe design which used a equally good megaphone, it was the second best pipe I ever tested (back in the day).

IF you get one from E Bay DO NOT overtighten the disc allen screws THAT was one of several downfalls of the WB design.

I found a used white brothers and bought it because the price was right. I figured I could resell if I decide not to use. If I do use it would you use the snuff r not or just take out the solid disc and run open. I'm going to be putting a 100" S&S on my '97 FLHT. thanks

Kenz,

I love my SuperTrapps. Take a look at my signature to see them on my bike. They sound great and aren't overly loud, although they growl nicely when you nail the throttle. They don't give me a headache like my SE Pro II's used to at highway speeds.

Been out of the loop. Have E-Series on my current bike, and just ordered a new bike so thinking about the next one. Didn't know they were going away. Time to start looking for something different I guess.

Sorry, been away dyno'in new machines.

The Snuff was designed to work on a dirt bike, it just does not flow enough to be used on a road bike. IF I remember the WB ran the best with the stock closed end cap and 12~14 discs.

I didn't know if the snuf er not would achieve the same goal as with the open end cap. What are your thoughts on AR cones?
