Beavis, I have seen the top of the mountain. This may be the coolest post ever.

That is very cool. I still have my stock pipes in a box. I was thinking
about opening them up but, now after seeing whats inside
I wouldn't wast my time. I took every thing out of my TOR's
here is a render I did of whats inside the TOR's
and an actual pic of the insides.
And yes, they make some noise. I think they sound great.
Bill

Here is the render I drew



and here is the actual pic of the insides
All there is ,is a piece of pipe about 6" long and a piece of perforated pipe about 12" long then a piece of pipe about 3"
and there is insulation packed around the perforated piece
of pipe.

Good info, and very cool rendering... can I ask what software & CPU you
used to produce that? It looks good!

Cheers,

Thanks, I did it in TurboCad professional version 11.5
I am using the top of the line HP with all the goodies.
I have been doing 2D drawings for about 7 years now.
Detailing steel for my company. I only started dabbling
in 3D modeling for about a year now. It is pretty complicated
stuff but, I'm getting there.
You can make some pretty realistic drawings with it by adding
materials and the right lighting.
Bill

So the TORs are just a straight-through glasspack. Good to know. and a time-honored solution to wimpy exhaust notes. Now the next logical question- what do Togas look like when dissected?

Well done. Thanks for sharing and preparing that Muffler Dissection. I wonder if I can get an old "Cherry Bomb" muffler to work......

No one is gonna cut their togas for an autopsy! When you look down 'em, they look straight through.
