Photos - The Muffler

My baby had it's first oil change today, and so I while the car was on the hoist I was able to take a look at the work on the custom exhaust system recently performed by a non-supporting-vendor and snap these pictures. They are presented here grouped by topics that people have been asking about.

Group 2 - The Pipe
Group 3 - The Muffler
Group 4 - The Hole


The Muffler

The muffler itself has one pipe in and two pipes out. Both pipes are functional and emit exhaust and that beautiful sound. The muffler is rather tall, with the inlet coming above the left exhaust. It fits easily in the space provided. It is mounted via rubber mounts to the frame with heavy steel rods attached to the side outlet pipes. In photos three and four the rear of the car is to the left.

You are most welcome! It's been a fun project. Actually, my friends at the non-supporting vendor cut the hole. They made a template from the one on the right, then flipped inside out to make the hole on the left. Fortunately there are lots of landmarks there.

I don't know what tools they used, but I can guess and/or tell you how I would do it myself... I'd cut the hole with a roto-zip tool at fairly low speed to keep from melting the plastic. I'd cut the hole just a little bit smaller than I wanted it to be, then grind it down to smooth it out and round the edges using a Dremel grinder - again, at low speed and working real slow to keep from melting the plastic. That should work fine. (I do a lot of work with plastic models, and a Dremel at low speed is my pal.)

Very Holly. Isn't it friggin' AWESOME? As for cost, it was... FREE! You can read all about it on other posts by me on this thread. Just go back a couple weeks and read 'em all. Quite an adventure!

Did they give you an idea of how much it is going to cost?

Two things on cost...

Number one, I don't have a cost yet. And all I know is that it's not available for general consumption now and it will be "a couple months" before the prototype becomes reality. That's pretty standard. I really have no additional details.

And number two, even if I did know the cost I could not post it here as they are a non-supporting-vendor and that would be against forum rules. During he project I was told that they were going to look into becoming a supporting vendor, but as far as I know that hasn't happend yet. If they do then it will be real easy to post info without breaking the rules. if they don't, then when I have some answers I will post, "I now know more about the commercial availability of this product from a non-supporting-vendor. Please PM me for details." But I can't even do that now, because I don't have any details.
