Re: muffler ?

I'm sure there's an easier way, but what I do is actually take a tape
and measure the muffler dimensions. I measure the circumference of the
pipes at the connections and write it all down. Then simple arithmetic
allows one to convert the numbers to diameter sizes, allowing for
thinckness of the pipes of course. That way I know what I have on the
vehicle I'm starting with and can check what's available to modify it.

if you're not sure how to do that... and many of us dont do it every
year, let alone everyday...google for an on-line calculator/conversion
site.

Re: muffler ?

Take your circumference measurement and divide by pi, 3.1416, to acheive
your diameter.

Example, if your circumference is 6.29", divided by pi, you have a 2" pipe.
