Funny, I already have my eye on that performance exhaust. $78, can't go wrong. Do you think it'll make a big difference?
And just so I understand Fred's advice correctly, I put the entire muffler in teh fire, right? The pronouns in his advice are confusing, note that the "it" could refer to either the wire or the whole muffler and wire:
"To unclog it you need to get it real hot and burn it out... one way is to attach a coathanger wire to it and set it into the coals of a hot campfire... pull it out every 5 minutes or so to make sure it is not melting it... turning orange is OK... melting is not."
