Supertrap mufflers are not intended to be quiet.  It is first of all 
a straight through pipe with negligable restriction.  The primary 
function of the end plates is to adjust the desired back 
pressure.  Increasing back pressure can improve engine torque in the 
lower speed range with a highly strung racing engine (translation 
"racing camshaft").  If you restrict flow and increase back pressure 
enough to make the Supertrap quiet the engine performance will suffer badly.
