Default HOMEMADE SILENCER OUT OF BUDLIGHT

This is my first attempt at making a can for my plane and maybe many others. These are the long neck cans that come 4 in a pack. The aluminum is 1.5mm thick and very lite weight. The pipe is 1 inch for the inlet and the outlet is around 1/2 inch or smaller. Like I said this is the first attempt and nothing is going to be pretty. Im fixing to take it to the welding shop now and git-re-done.

It all depends on whether or not "cans" have any kind of baffling in them. With no baffling then why not? I'm more than a little interested to see how well this works out myself. You may end up the next great exhaust manufacturer, ya never know

That is almost identical to what I did. I used 3/4 for the outlet. The holes between the two chambers are 1/2 and there are four of them. On my g62 it is very quite and makes good power.

Cooool!. The guy that was suppose to weld it today played hooky so I didnt get it welded. Maybe tommarow. I cant wait to see if it works good. A g-62 is a pretty loud motor so maybe we are doing something right....

Here is a big multi-paged thread at Flying Giants about the Bud Cans.

They were coming up with great results.
