Does the plugged Pipe face toward the exhaust exit or the engine. Or does it matter, anyone know?
Cheers..

For what it's worth, I put mine in with the plugs to the exit so I could get to them without ripping the whole thing apart. A couple others said that they put theirs in the other way.

Maybe JCL will jump in and let us know for sure.

The plug end goes up near the collector the open end is at the back. Says so in the instructions.

I got a box with 2 baffles that were zip tied together, some packaging and that's it. I went with my best guess and I was wrong. Oh well. I'm NOT right all the time, but my average is still pretty good.

As long as it sounds and runs good, that's all that matters.

Well, let's see if I can help.

69vettester. As per the directions the capped end goes at the INLET end, or closest to the engine.

TimAT. What you have done is create a kind of reverse flow muffler. The exhaust has to go down the center tube, AND also back up the tube to go out. RESTRICTION............ Not good.........
Also Tim did you get the hardware bag. If you got the bag, then I know you got directions. If you didn't get these PLEASE call or e-mail me.........

Crimonwake is correct with the caps at the inlet end, but with them at the opposite end.............RESTRICTION

Hope this helps........ANY questions guys, CALL or E-MAIL me...
Thanks, JCL

Hey Jim, glad you made your way over here to DC! I've heard a lot of good things about the baffles and plan to purchase some when I get my sidepipes :thumbsup:
