I reckon 2 on one side would look best especially if they were slightly staggered in length with the top pipe longer than the bottom one. How about 2 on each side? When I used to ride chops I had 4 straight through drag pipes which gave out a very unique and sexy sound Smile

thanks Wes, appreciate your help mate. I normally use IMG code for piccies, should I use Direct Link for videos? IMG works ok on other Forum ?

Am I the only one wondering what forcing the gas out such a small hole might do for efficiency / power?

Does look smashing though!

The hole is 35mm mate, bigger than the hole in a standard silencer . No signs of any back pressure problems and I can,t afford dyno time for every can I make.

Fair cop Smile
Really does look good I like it a lot.
Liking the idea of a pair at staggered angles too.
Respect is due on the fab skills!
A tip for packing - try acoustafil. Comes as a sheet, wrap once or twice, insert, and it expands to fill the gap. Ideal in all cases but maybe even more useful here where the gap is so small.

Knocked this together today. I had a 60mm tube welded to a washer, 38mm i/d, 73mm o/d. Made the slashcut outta 3" polished stainless tube, 13" long. added a 10" length of 38mm perforated tube and another washer to the end. Just wedged it all together to see what it looked and sounded like. Whadya reckon?

Here's a video . Double click to view and listen.
