Burning out a glasspack?

7 posts in this topic

A bunch of ideas come to mind, but none of them are safe. Just curious why would you want to do that? Its gonna be pretty choppy and poppin a lot. You would be better off cutting it out and just doing the straight pipe thing.

If you leave them alone they will burn out on their own in less then a year. There are ways to speed up the process, but they would be ilegal to do, and may not be really safe.

First off, a lot of the newer glasspacks are almost impossible to burn out because the packing has been improved for one. A lot of the newer ones have a baffle inside that is just as tough as the shell of the muffler making it pretty much impossible for the packing to come out. (I worked at exhaust pros for a couple years so loud exhaust is something I still hold near and dear wink )

I would highly recomend just cutting it out and putting in a straight pipe. It would be quicker and safer than trying to burn it out. As long as you dont mess with the catalytic convertor your still going to be legal, just with the chance of getting a noise ticket (not cheap, like 150$).

personal note, the cops love to hand out those tickets. We had plenty of people come in and get straight pipes and come back in a week to get at least a glasspack put in because they got a ticket.)

IMO i would take the glasspacks out and put high flow cats, sounds better when you tromp on it IMO. other than just driving it idk how else you could break in you glasspacks?

    • Like I said Dave I think you are correct.  But this is a different election.  So your vote might matter.  I also wonder who the Liberal Tribune is actually calling if that is the one you want to hang your hat on.
    • Sorry but if Hillary wins I will not get what I deserve.  Everyone who voted for her or anyone besides Trump gets what they deserve.
    • I could care less if Johnson changes his mind.  I think you're  trolling in the wrong lake if you've ever seen me post about any candidate changing their mind.
    • How  big is the lake and what kind of weeds are most prevalent? 
    • I think we can thank our coach, the D will not lay down to anybody. We have made to MVP quarterbacks look like T-Jack lol. What a fun team to watch, is it sustainable? Only time will tell but I tell you what, nobody wants to play our D in the post season. That's what I'm excited about.  If Trent Dilfer can do it, we can do it. 
    • After that performance? Even the extremely biased Brietbart poll shows Trump losing that debate: Who won the debate polls: CNN/ORC - 62/27 = Clinton +35 PPP - 50/41 = Clinton +9 NBC/SM - 52/21 = Clinton +31 Gravis/Brietbart - 48/43 Clinton = +5 Reuters - 56/26 = Clinton +30
    • Nice design, cant wait to see it completed...    
    • So, for Y'all that are blowing RNT and Zink calls, how do you decide what to get? I'm in the mood to pick one really good goose call and one really good mallard call.  I looked at the $100 plus calls in the boxes at the C store but am leary of just pulling something off the hook based on a model name. Any suggestions for someone who mainly hunts in MN only for waterfowl? A good woodie call should be considered too. I'm still using some old Haydell calls, and Canada Hammer, Quack Head, etc..  Thanks
    • How have sturgeon been up there? Haven't been able to fish much (helping sister with hew wedding that was last weekend), but I do have Friday off and I'm thinking of heading up there to give it a go.
    • The final item on my list is to create a fold down bed. I have the aluminum bought and cut and have a friend using the tig to put it together. I plan on using webbing across the top and will buy a 4" mattress from clarkfield outdoors. Here are the designs, I will add pictures when I have it completed and mounted.
