This will be for the LRD but I'm sure they are probably about all the same...

It will be a week or so before I get it put back together I imagine, will have to order the packing kit & new core. I think I could clean up my core and reuse it, but a new core isnt that much so...

Here is what they look like now... Man that core is all clogged up!

That's one more reason I have second thoughts about buying another aftermarket pipe. Good thing about a modded stock is all you have to is tap it on the sides and wash it out. I've been thinking very serious about building my own big header , same length, no packing exhaust using the stock canister complete with bung holes for a/f meter. Heck if that sawed off cajun Guage can do it I can...hahahaha I just need to research the best header size and order a box of random bends header wrap and bung holes. The rest is almost the same process as choosing how to route your snorks.

Awesome, Thats about how mine looked when i did it about a month ago.
But have to say it lasted longer than i thought it would had about 150 hours through it.

well i filled it w/ mud one time and it dried in there.... thats where most of it came from. I thought about just packing it w/ steel wool but, the packin isnt that expensive I just have to order it from LRD. $24 I think.

hahaha That wouldn't last for long. You would be blowing sparks out you exhaust once it got hot enough. plus it would rust and turn to dust quick.

yeah, another reason why I'm not doing it! haha... I was wondering if I could just get some fiberlglass from a local place and do that, but then again I'd have to cut it. And still have to buy it. For $24 I get the exact thing I need ready to put in. lol.. seems kinda gooberish not to buy it.

Actually the stock pipe does have packing in the very end tip. It's wraped very tight and is hard as a rock.





I had already pulled the packing out of the piece on the left.
