exploring the sudo muffler for the rattle

took this off and cut it open.
the stainless is pretty thick.
the insulation was very dense and packed.
after pulling it out, looks like its a straight through. no rattle found :/




replacing muffler with this. magnaflow 3" turbo muffler


decided to do the fuel pump to since i had time last night.
filter was disgusting.


oem next to 355lph pump. i like that loudness lol. WEEEEEEEE!!!

BASS BOAT PAINT FTW!!......:slap:

However my friend did a super good job and it looks good either way.

wet sanded/buffed/polished.
