Project KP30: Single Box of Doom

A simple bolt on replacement can was never on the cards. I Only wanted enough silencing to take the harshness out at idle, but still enough noise to rattle windows and upset the neighbours.  I picked up this street fighter can, pointed it roughly at the car, then took it to bits. It was fitted with a baffle and the internals were only 1 1/4″ diameter.

Drilled out the rivets and pulled the guts out:

Seriously, look at the state of that! It was promptly removed!

I opened out the end and on the baffle out of an old can I had.

Comparison shot with the new 2″ internals

adapted some of the brackets that came with it and fitted it up

I’ll get some proper pics and a vid up soon. Oh yeah, it’s pretty loud!
