    Can I have the baffles removed or will it cause problems ?

    Where is the best place to buy a new muffler..............I'm not into spending $400+ for a muffler.

    Thank you.

    Make you a set of duals for under $30. Cut the flanges off your blown out muffler, weld on a couple 3"x 1" pipe nipples, screw on a couple 45 Degree elbows, screw on couple Close 1" nipples. Get a couple 1" screw on Arnold brand Replacement mufflers, and you will have a good sounding set of duals cheap.

    We ended up buying a stock S.S. Prodrive muffler that had the baffles removed.
    It's got a little better low end torque and maybe a few more mph up top. Or maybe it just sounds faster.:l
    Either way, thank you for selling me the muffler John.
    I think it's going g to work out well for us.:tu
    Thanks for the help olefart, we saved the old muffler.
    If it can't be repaired we are going to try the set up you recommended .
    Thank you.

    Just gut your old one. Cut off end cap, pull all internals out, replace outlet with longer one that extends to 1/4 from backside of can and weld it all back up. If you want to quiet it a little, the cheap can opener style baffles from JC Whitney give them a nice tone.

    " replace outlet with longer one that extends to 1/4 frombackside of can "

    Can you explain this to me a little better please?
    We plan on gutting the old muff and filling a little hole that started on one of the old welds.:yes
    Thanks for the ideas.

    Was thinking about going from the stock 1.5" up to 2" on the outlet tail pipe.
    Just for the hell of it to see what that would do for us. :tu

    Where the outlet extends into the muffler body, some have found that by taking it almost all the way to the back helps eliminate some of the backfire when coming off throttle.

    That is what I thought you meant , and it makes sense to me.
    If and when we do tear into the old muff we for sure will put it in deep.
    Thank you for the great ideas.
