    Default Aluminum Mufflers

    Decided to make some aluminum mufflers for my race car. Got the Idea from some turbo RSX's, (Kracker, thats for you... ) And they seem to hold up fine for them, so what the heck.

    I did have one problem, I couldnt stop my hand from shaking today, I dont know what was up, im 23 And my had shakes like a leaf... Hope it goes away....

    Any way, here are some pictures... Not as good as some of you guys...

    Thanks, 10.84@ 122 last time

    Has a budget heads/cam, and some weight reduction.

    The new mufflers ar 2.5 lbs each, the whole exhaust is now ~ 10 lbs, vs 47..

    2.4lbs is pretty good for a muffler. Do you have any straight through designs for a build it yourself muffler. I like what you did but I think it would have more flow resitriction than a straight through design.

    2.4lbs is damm light, lol

    Some time ago I installed a straight thru muffler on my semi. It had about 3-4 doughnut style baffles all with a 5 inch open center. I seriously could have dropped a softball right thru. It was very quiet. From the time I hit second gear(out of 13) I could tell the power was off. I couldnt pull a load anything like before and did a lot more shifting. In the 5 days that muffler was on I spent $147 EXTRA in diesel fuel. Needless to say Id rather put up with the noise than pay the extra in fuel and lost time.

    Let us know what happens with your time slip.
