Axleback Project!

So I had a dream that I made some custom homemade mufflers/axlebacks. So Sunday night I started the dream into reality. I am starting out with 2.5" inner tube and my outer shell will be 4". So far I got my 2.5" exhaust pipe, headed to my buddies and had him flare it out for me just in case I decided to go that route while making the entire axleback, if not I will cut it off and just buttweld the entire thing (which was my normal process anyways). I will have a picture up in a few minutes, 96 holes in each inner tube.. I don't know what I would do without my drill press.

I like the way they sound too, but I have some pretty anal neighbors and I am not trying to go that route lol.

I guess you could call it a muffler delete, but a glasspack/resonator still has a slight muffle rather than just a delete all together which is what I thought you meant.

Update: I found 4" pipe here at the beach after calling just about everywhere trying to find it. I got everything except my cover plates, I was going to cut them out with a hole saw and then by hand, but got a buddy that will laser cut them sometime this weekend or first of next week then it will be time to put it all together and burn it in! Hopefully this will be finished by next weekend, I'm excited to see how it sounds!

Alright boys new power is in the shop so I was able to get a little more done today. I bought stainless steel scrubbers and pulled them and stretched them all wound with copper wire to keep it on the inner tube, then it was wrapped with 1/8 thick carbon fiber. (I had a lot left over from subwoofer boxes I have done) so why not instead of fiberglass and it holds up to heat better. After that slipped on the tube and tacked it up. then proceeded to burn it in. Here is the outcome, tomorrow I'm going to get 3/8 rod make my hangers and hopefully get then painted, I'll mask off the ends for tips and get them on when I find some around here that doesn't break my wallet.

yeah they definitely look different than your normal mustang axleback, but I'm excited to just get them on and see what they sound like! Im debating if I should get the hangers on and paint them tomorrow and put them on or wait until I get tips. I'll be deciding over night lol.

Thanks man! I'm bringing the tech back to the tech forums! Lol just kidding, I just find it easier to fabricate my own stuff instead of paying for it. I've made a lot of custom parts for my car and other friends cars. I love it. It's why I do it.

So I finished up my hangers, used 3" for my tips and currently their sitting in the paint room (which is not clean and has some stuff in it, for mufflers we won't bother. If it was a car it would be scrubbed down and prepped for painting). 3 coats of epoxy, used propane torch inside the mufflers to bake them from the inside out. (Since our oven is currently being transported to the shop).

exhaust sounds awesome, the tone change quite a bit and is a little louder than it was originally with flowmasters. I was so happy when I pulled out of my shop to go home I couldn't wait to get on the little four mile long two lane road.

I did get a quick exhaust clip in my driveway, it was a cold start, and on my iPhone so don't judge me!
