made another muffler

this one is for my 2000 GMC 2500 6.0 vortec. i like making my own stuff and it normally saves money as well so instead of buying one, this is what i did.

i used 6 1/2", 3/16" wall pipe since i had some already. 18" long body.

also had some perforated steel sheet so used that for the inner core.



i wrapped it around 3" exhaust pipe and welded it up.





then i welded a piece of 3" exhaust pipe onto one end.



then i cut out the end piece out of 1/8" sheet.



here's the core inside the outer pipe.



and through the core.



now i just need to pack it and weld it up then its done. hopefully it goes on tomorrow.



oh yeah, so far it has cost me $0. i had everything i needed and the guy i know at the exhaust shop gave me the 3" pipe for free.

Nice job! I have been building my own exaust systems for years. Most people don't realize just how simple it is. Not always easy, but simple. Keep up the good work.
