So the pipes are just under water at idle?

Wiggler,
Please list the contact name/phone number for bending of the tubing. Did they swedge the end so it clamps on the existing tail pipe?

They can be made to your specs, mine are5"od with donut stainless reducer to 4.503od and have 2 large set screws at 2 and 4 o'clock to hold them tight. Mine is a real custom application because of the 3 Mercury 6 drives and the long swim platform. Mine also has a stainless trapeeze under them attatched to the side of the swim platform for extra support when boat is slowed or back waves hit them. they can be made with in line muffler or air actuated open exhaust in drop formation prior ro muffler.I can call my fabricator Bruce and have him callyou if your interested. jim

They can't be made for mine. No swim platform for the high wire act Jim spoke of.

Jim-
Me too. They'll need to fit over my shotgun-style pipes. See photo.
thanks

Have a pic before they were polished, will try to scan and post, I'll have Bruce call you guys, Because of the crackdown here at LOTO I had to do something, or quit boating, in 2 years no miffler system was available to meet missouri laws, thru alot of hunting I found the right people to build a highly custom set, now I can relax when idling into party cove by water patrol.I'm also having him build me inserts just in case they start sitting in the middle of the lake and doing a run by test. spent the day with 3600cat watching him try to fabricate muffler setup for his 36 nortech cat. just dont see how it can ever get legal, Sean will find the answer. trying to post pic but it sats its too big, how do you resize?
