Exhaust End Baffle Removal Question

Has anyone ever removed the baffles from the inside exhaust end (see model in the pic) ? Just curious how it sounds at idle and running through gears, and if there's any performance gain?

Hi Chris,
firstly I would check that they are actually baffled. That design of silencer is normally straight-through, with a perforated pipe and exhaust wadding wrapped around it. This type takes out the high frequency harmonics without restricting performance. Replacing with a straight through pipe, would give very little, if any performance gain and a harsher exhaust note.
Regards,
Andy
 
That's my next question, I heard the megs on idle and its quite a sound. (I'm certain that is how they were original 60's race ready). I guess my next question is if I take out the exhaust wadding/perforated pipe inside the silencer, would it sound like the megaphones? Or would it be different because it becomes a chamber before letting out?

(i did this to a motorcycle ducati dr16, moto gp replica and it sounds like it should, full race sound).

Maybe getting a set of megaphones would probably be easier install job that actually removing the wadding inside the stock exhaust.

If you looking for a bit more (read that quite a bit more) noise, install a pair of megs! ;-)

According to your picture, that would be way easyer. Any exhaust builder localy could make you megs as its just tapered pipe.
