  • Muffler delete and zero clamp fae

    • Year: 1996 Brand: Malibu Model / Trim: Vlx Cost: (unspecified) DIY or Professional Install: I installed it Engine Type: 320 monsoon

    I added fae and decided while I had the thru hull exhaust off it would be a good time to delete the 21 year old muffler that was bound to fail at some point.  There isn't a ton of room so with the tips off its way easier to get hoses on and off.   I went with a one piece thru hull fae, so once it was screwed into transom, I wouldn't  have to forget to tighten clamps.   

    I found muffler shop that would fabricate a stainless straight pipe for 700$.  I wanted to spend less so I found 4x 3.5" rubber elbows and 2x 9" pieces of stainless steal 3.5".   It was an easy fix and fit great.  I have been out once to test it and there is pretty good spray between transom and swimstep but I'll work on that.  

    Pics are just from fitting I added clamps lol
