Here's the newest upgraded muffler:It's #304 Stainless steel inside and out, #304 stainless tubing will be now 1 7/8" diameter into a 1 7/8" stainless lined turbo flex coupler then expanding onto a 2 1/4" stainless muffler then back down to 1 7/8" again.But the systems should look pretty much the same, except be a little smaller diameter pipe.The new muffler is the same length, but is a slight oval shape 6 1/2"x 4 1/2" not the older 5" round, this is to keep things well away from the stock valances and heat sheilds.It will also have a slight bit more volume for sound absorbing.This muffler is a little more money than the last one I used, and the tubing is a little less.So it works out to pretty much the same in pricing.This is the only pic I have right now of the stainless muffler, sorry.I will assume people are ok with the change when deposits are given later this week.Thanks, ;) Steve

Well Caddyman, If you have a look at this pic, and look at the mounting plates for the aluminum bar, it looks to me that the aluminum bar would be about one inch away maybe?, so that puts your 1/2" thick? metal hitch plate behind the aluminum bar about 1/2" and inch or less away from the top of the muffler.Now I may be wrong on this, but that's just my guess looking at the pic here.Now this pic shows a 5" round,................ the new ones are 6 3/4" tall and 4.5" wide, (as in toward the valance)Taller yes, but oval which could taper away from the hitch.? and thinner so maybe it will just fit in behind the hitch metal.I don't know, but I do know it will be super close.Not sure what else to say.

Rick,

I will be doing these first ones and then I have a few other booked jobs to do before I could do any others.

But saying that, I would also like to do a "batch" together next time as well, not just one or two.

I will always have the tools here in my shop for these types of jobs so these and other jobs like it will all be considered in the future.

Plus don't forget, my fulltime job is a fabricator : http://www.stevewillgoose.com/

Damn, I have to pay for my new $900 lathe motor somehow!

I think I will put a deadline to order on this batch, so let's say MONDAY ?The reason is I need to have the order finalized for shipping and am only making the amount of systems we need.I'm not really a dealer so I won't be carrying stock.Well ..........maybe one extra unit on hand.Thanks

I thought I would keep you guys in the loop as the systems are made.Went into Vancouver yesterday and chose some nice materials.1/2" thick #304 stainless steel, cut at 77 degrees. (I went a little thinner here than the prototype, this keeps the pipe further away from the engine mount)6 feet of 3/4"thick x 8"wide, 6061-T6 aluminum flatbar for the muffler mount , (I went a little thicker here to stiffen things up a bit) original was 1/2"And 1/4" wall 6061-T6 extruded aluminum for mounting bracket topsAll the other stainless parts have been ordered.

SteveThank you for the update, this information helps to keep the excitement at a feverish pitch in anticipation of the system finally being delivered. The added boost to the performance (and sound quality) will help to quell the negative rantings of my so-called friends. Boy will I show them!One of the many qualities of the Smart is of course its nimbleness and to throw in some quickness is going to be a real treat.Just today I tried out 1 of the parking spaces that the City of Victoria has installed for my own personal use, I say haha to all the shopperstrying to find a spot with their leviathans. Great fun knowing I can fit where my wifes Vanagon Syncro will have to pass by. Robert

A free-flowing intake and exhaust will let you really get the most out of your remap! Bil :sun:

I have been milling the #304 stainless flange blanks, and you see the 3 stages.The stage on the mill shown I am taking the corners off the blanks.The next stage is edge sanding to the rough shape.Next will be all the lathe work.Also, if there are any machinist types out there, I'm looking for indexable carbide toolholders.boring bars, facing tools, parting tools, etc, to buy (or trade for an exhaust system) ;)

It's a shame I don't have my father's stuff still, he was a tool & die maker.The newest item would be 40 years old by now but some things never change,right?

Well that's true for most of machining I think, but they have come a long way with these carbide indexable insert tools like the ones pictured.And tool and die makers like your dad were and still are, the cream of the crop in machining ;)
