    custom free flow tube

    got a 2.5" tube from a auto store with some muffler wrap. I am planning on using this to attatch to the original exaust hose that leads from the waterbox to the exaust port. Has anyone else done anything similar to this? Did it work?

    ya thought of that afterwards too... made one out of aluminum tubing i had.. works good so far.. i also had a friend who was thinking of doing the same but using PVC??? I would think even though it is water cooled, it would still melt it.
