Good Morning everyone.
I hope all the 928s are up and running fine, or at least as expected.

I drove mine into work today and it was a nice drive.

I did a test run last night and found that the knock sensors were hearing a lot of noise in the high rpm range.

Lots more tuning required, but other then that I am really pleased. :)

YEA!!! Keep up the good work! Make it FLY!

EURO85 is doing well...drove it some today. Got it inspected and had a guy look at the exhaust to see about putting a REAL muffler (like a Flowmaster) where the little empty "box" is right now to try and quiet the thing down a bit, but no cigar...

Hey James, a Hush Thrush is a nice throaty but not to loud of a muffler. See if one of your buds has one on a stang so you can hear it.

Here is the problem... inlet and outlet right across from each other (as in a line just straight through) and a length not to exceed 13" and width not more than 8" I think he said, thickness not more than 4"...

Got anything like that???

Looks like the dual in dual out Thrush Turbo muffler would work. Says it flows all directions all connections. So it would not matter if we blanked off two of the holes! Well done Brad! Thanks mucho!

Just looked again...WAY to long... I think I am limited to like 13" and that one is 20"... Damn it! It is the only one that has outlets on the same side of the box. Everything else is side in center out or center in side out...

Brad, do you have access to Thrush stuff and can you weld?! ;) Seriously! I am looking at Part # 17660... If either end was cut off and flipped over then the inlet and outlet would be on the same side. The way it looks the ends of these things can be cut off and rewelded. Not that it would be easy...just saying it could be done and in this case it would then be a direct weld in to my car!

What do you think??? I am basing that on looking at the cutaway pic of the muffler...it shows it as a chambered design so should not be a problem cutting the end off and flipping it over...

Brad,

Just ordered a Magnaflow and it will be at the installers tomorrow (supposedly) and the plan is to have it installed on Friday! Total cost including install is $160! NICE!

Thats a great price. someone on RL uses one IIRC.
I think they were happy with the tone and said the decible level was quiet untill you hit the loud peddle. The way it should be.

The PO must have changed mine. Small rez and muffler and it is a bit loud.
The cops can hear me from to far away :)

Yea, I hope this makes it much more quiet and knocks the edge off the note. It is just to...ummmm...I don't know how to describe it, but it is not a pretty sound. If it at least makes it more sonorous but same db level that would be fine with me, but I would prefer that it also make it a bit quieter. The car is louder than my race car! The racer has a Flowmaster 40 on it btw!

So Brad, that didn't work... I looked at it (they didn't have an open view of what the inside of the muffler looked like online or I would have never bought it) and it is straight through... CLEARLY not going to be very helpful at all...

So, back to the drawing board...

How much is that Thrush "Turbo" that is about 9" X 13"? Can you do some surgery on one for me bad Brad??? :)

Might be easier to just located a tip that I like that has some muffling properties...

James I would gladly do it for you but I do not have a welder at the house.

Have you looked at some of the custom stuff out there or do you want something totally original. What about Dr or Brad, or Greg who live closer to you, would they do something like that? I am not turning you down but for me to buy, modify and re-chrome a muffler, would it be worth the price? I would not charge you anything, but I would have to pay off one of the techs at work to sneak it through :) did that with my Intake pipe that I had turned down :D

ILL look to see if I can find something already to go for you.
Give me a day.

Brad,

Just half messing with you... That thrush bit would go way under the car...no need for any clean up after the weld other than some high temp paint maybe.

I can find something local and we have a BUNCH of muffler places that can make this happen. Hell, I don't even know what the cost of the thrush is.

The one that look sort of easy (and I think would fit, but might not...and might not even be quieter than what is on the car currently!) is the 17660 and you would just cut one end off and flip it over and reweld it. Thus both the inlet and outlet would be on the same side of the body of the can...

Anyway, it will probably be easier to find a tip that I like and just have that welded on... I'll keep my eyes peeled. This falls in the "no big deal" department for sure!
