Default Stock exhaust vs. Vetterman?

With my fuselage kit due in a couple of weeks, I'm beginning to think seriously about the remaining bits and pieces.

While I used the Vetterman crossover exhaust on my RV-8 many years ago, I'm wondering if there's a compelling reason to do so nowadays, particularly with respect to the RV-14A.

Is there a good reason to go with one option or the other, exhaust-wise?

Hi Ken, feel free to give us a call, and I can explain how our exhaust is different from vans and why we did what we did. Clint Busenitz/Vetterman Exhaust

When I buy a product I buy the companies support as well, I can tell you that Clint makes a first class exhaust and the product support doesn't get any better if you need it (which you probably wont), no reason to go anywhere else IMO.

Clint, Im building a -14 and was wondering if you still only make an exhaust for the IO-390 with both pipes going thru cut holes in the cowl and not using the exhaust tunnel?
