homemade free flow question
ive seen people using metal exhaust pipe or pvc to make a free flow exhaust. but there seems to be a common problem with backpressure. so i was thinking maybe take a d-plate and cut it to fit (maybe make a larger "d" hole too) and welding it inside the pipe to produce some backpressure but still have a cool sound. do you think it could work? would it be too much back pressure? i really dont know just an idea i had

Funny that I see this post tonight I was thinking of the same mod for my ski. I am not sure the effect but it might actually help the top end a little. I am sorry I have know facts on this but it seems like it might be a good idea..I am sure some of the guru's will chime in...

I' neresting idea. . I'd try a hose clamp on the hose first. just start choking it down while you are on the water and see what happens. that way you don't spend all the time on the metal fab and can't go backwards if you need to.

hm hose clamp sounds like it could work too. i need to make a free flow first, does anyone have a precut piece of aluminum that they can part with?

I've been thinking about something like this too, just hadnt thought about how to implement it
Quick question for the DIY FF guys, do you know any place to buy a rubber coupling so that I dont have to cut my stock hose? Also, what are the chances of PVC melting?
