Aren't you going to be running dry exhaust? Not too many mufflers that I found will work with dry exhaust!

Dwayne,I am going to mix the water just inside the tips.The plan is to make 3"id stainless tube and cover it with 4"id exhaust hose right to the transom.I'll extend the exhaust 2" beyond the the rubber connection.What do you think?I have to put the boat together to build the exhaust,so I have time to think.

Do the Gibson's need water, or will they work with dry exhaust? I have a feeling I'm going to need something to quite mine down. It is dry.

Thanks,
Frank

I am pretty sure they need water Frank. I have not found any mufflers to work on my Dry setup. The "stock" motor is not that bad noise wise so I gave up the search!.

I'll send you an e-mail in the morning. A few things I must consider. Got a picture of your tails ? If not just tell me if the water dump is a tube inside the tail or outside the tail.

The only thing the tails have is a small hole at the top to keep the water circulating through them. I have 2 dumps per engine right above the drives for the majority of the water.

Here's a pic during the destruction phase ;)
