Reposting here since I didn't get any answers in General Q & A, does anyone know what these cans are that are welded to my tails on 1990 357 SR1 420/TRS? First time I have seen them so I am curious.

Mufflers or baffles maybe. Any lines going to them?

Negative on the lines, I donít feel like pulling it apart to see so I was hoping someone would know.

My guess would be some type of muffler, since the flapper is usually in the tail piece. What else would you do to an exhaust?

That's what I am leaning too as well, just "baffles" me as to why you would need additional mufflers with the silent thunder platform.

I like my flux capacitors spinning outward.

On a side note, I opened up the silent thunder platform as I have all previous birds and this boat much quieter than ones in the past. I am going to have a closer look when I put the tails to put in new gaskets and plates - might end up cutting the off to let her exhale a little better.

Let the bird breathe!!!! I was so happy once i finally pulled the box off. I like the looks of it but at the same time I love the new aluminum platform.
