    id say that it is clearly a buku knock-off

    but what id really think is that its an early version of one maybe??

    but it does look cool imo.

    but maybe it works the same, with close results...?

    it's not a buku knock off, if anything buku is a knock off of it. that pipe is a CVEC pipe of a company that was out a couple years back. was small like buku then went under or something. i have one myself.

    woaa,

    i was lookin at the pipe with the one outlet goin parallel out the pipe.

    but on second thought THE RIGHT PIPE looks like a buku to me.

    haha mybad i was looking at the wrong one.

    now i feel old, even as a 19 year old... i had a cvec too, and i now have a buku. the cvec wasnt as affective as the buku, or as expensive (they used to cost $50-$60).

    i had one on my Schumacher fusion, then transferred it to my revo. It was pretty decent and fun, but i had horrible leaking problems. You can unscrew it down the center, just as seen in the above pic. It was a cool fad everybody had one. It's sad to see that they're gone.

    that cvec isnt gonna help forbes. it never was dynoed for its gains or anything. it really just made a good sound.
