Re: What is this suit case handle you guys speak of? (Sivtecbmx)
The coined phrase 'suitcase' is a term for the mid-muffler. The advantages to removal are: 1. Aggressive exhaust note, 2. Approx. 30lbs less sprung weight, 3. Cheap modification... anywhere from $30 to $60.
The disadvantages are: 1. Minimal loss of torque (I didn't notice it.) 2. Exhaust drone between 2000 and 3000K.
You VR6 will sound better without it because the mid-muffler is used primarily as a noise restriction device.
