I need some input on the General....
Well, I went out today and it blew out another exhaust coupler. Same pipe and same position. On the top of the coupler, it is the center pipe wich is connected to the MAG cyclinder. Need some input on what might be causing this. I did use good turbo quality silicone couplers and none of the other couplers look damaged. Temps feel good on all the cyclinders. Not sure what is going on. So any input will be helpfull. Well gotta go and take the wife to get something to eat I will be back shortly.

How are the cooling passages to that pipe? Free and clear? Is the water flow out the pissers the same. Maybe the pipe is full of sand and not getting proper cooling? Did you install a o-ring?

i'd guess that the stinger isn't getting any water to it for that pipe.my pro did the same thing

Water flow from the pissers are the same flow and the same temp. by touch. Stinger passage I can blow air through there very freely, keep in mind that the same sorce for the stinger is the same sorce for the pissers. Pipe temps are very cool to touch. All good points. I think I am going to try to fill the void between the pipes with high temp silicone, and see if that makes any diffrentces, unless someone has any other ideas. Keep in mind that the center pipe only has one bend in the head pipe, unlike the other two pipes. Also has the longest pipe to the collector. Which that might be the problem. I have no idea, so any insite will be helpfull.

Is the pipe itself getting hot before the stinger? I can't remember the pipes 100%, are they jacketed or is there water injected?

Pipes have a full jacket. They look just like the PSI pipes you are selling other than the head pipes are diffrent. The entire pipes even the head pipes are cool to the touch. Once in a while they might get a little warm, but for the most part they feel cool.

Going to use fiberglass rope to inslate the coupler. The rope that is used in wood stoves to seal the doors and stacks. Dose this sound like a good idea?

You may want to look into that muffler bandage tape?

The flat area inside the pipe is where I was talking about putting the rope.

How are those pipes mounted? I know how the head pipes connect to the chambers obliviously, but how are they all mounted to each other and/or the hull, or are they just free floaters?
