Default canister muffler for twin cylinder engines

canister muffler for twin cylinder engines
I was told yesterday by someone from J-Tech that twin cylinder engines do not run correctly when connecting twin headers to a single internal canister muffler. Something about collision of the two exhaust streams causing exhaust gas to"back up". Is this the case? If it is, I'll abandon this idea and fall back to the Pitts mufflers. Rick

I myself wouldn't use a single header that's dueled out the pulse rate would be way different between the two cylinders and create some major issue's.
Duel it out with cans and get the best out of things. Pipes can be peeky and some times don't work well for every day flying. Or just use the stock exhaust. Pitts would be another non choice for me.
