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
