Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any experience removing the baffles on the long TOR's for Speedmaster/America. I like the look of the pipes so I don't want to switch them, but I prefer an open pipe.

Thanks in advance . . .

Those are the same as mine. How did you take out the baffles?

I should better clarify, mine are straight-through, but not gutted; there is a center core baffle that is open straight through from inlet to outlet. The center core presumably has some type of packing around it. Mine are not gutted.

Okay, yes mine are the same, about a 3/4" hole straight through; but I wouldn't consider this truly open, as it restricts a lot of air and dampens the sound quite a bit. I would like to open them up completely and was just wondering if it was as simple as knocking out a couple spot welds or if I have to use a hole saw to get that baffle out. Also, what all is in there, packing material? How may baffles? And so on. It's just nice to go in informed - sometimes you discover things along the way that had you known that prior, it would have made your job a lot easier.

Have you considered picking up a stock set & gutting them? You could always sell the TORS; it seems a waste to gut the straight thru TORS when there are so many OEM pipes laying around.

That's not a bad idea, but I don't see that anyone is selling them.
