    Ultra basic muffler deletes to go with fresh air exhaust. 

     

    I bought a pair of 3.5" stainless 60* exhaust elbows on Amazon. Remove factory muffler. Cut off about an inch off each end of the elbows. Probably could have gone up to 2" off each end. Then install elbows in place of muffler. IMG_20201024_131851826.jpg.e88284f00d607ecc9b065a493d332fde.jpg

    Nice.  Can you "update" and then add the picture of the engine compartment in the main write-up?  It's only in the "title image" , so it's small.  

    Love that sound!   Did you guys get a lot of time on the boat this year?

    How much louder is it at surf speed? Which motor do you have? 

     

     

     

    I haven't been on the water with it yet. Honestly I'm expecting no increase in sound for the rider as the noise is still well below the water line upon exit. 

     

    I've read of decreased noise in the boat as it's no longer in the muffler. I'm hoping this is the case. 

     

    I have the indmar CAT 340. Honestly I think it's quieter out of the water then my old nautique with the 351 and factory mufflers.

    After being on the water and behind the boat specifically, Its definitely not louder w/o the muffler. The wave still makes more noise then the exhaust. Inside the boat...I want to say it's a bit quieter without the engine noise in the muffler but I can't be sure. But with the additional space under the motor cover I would do it again
