And your innards would be jelly, Nick. ;-)
You probably haven't, so I'll tell you, it's tough enough to stand near a 60 pounder, and some 25 pounders. Strapping two 150 pounders on is just crazy talk!

Mate the two pulsejets so that they work out of phase, use a carbon fiber cowling around the assembly etc. etc. In short, take a look at my Constant Flow assembly for pointers. Neither vibration nor the noise need be as punishing as they are at the moment, with bare-bones combustors that we are working on.

Couldn't you make some kind of dampening system and mount them a few feet away from you? how big would a 150lbs valveless pulsejet be? Modified bent chinese are the most effecient right?

SS bends are made in many sizes. 6" is a bit pricey tho. =)
