Default Muffler for OS 160 fx


I posted the below on the general site, but would appreciate input from you.

"I'm considering setting up a Diablo 2000 with an OS 160 FX with a side-mounted muffler.

Does anyone have an opinion on how it will compare noise-wise with a rear-exhaust, pipe equiped engine? (E.G OS 140 RX with factory pipe?)

Are there any after-market mufflers that reduce the noise more without robbing power?

I might also need a short extention to clear the cowl. Any leads on a source for one?"

Any help greatly appreciated

Your talking about engines with quite a bit of difference. The O.S. Max 1.40 RX engine is intended for F3A Pattern, and will run in a different RPM band than will the 1.60 FX engine, which is a general-purpose engine. The 1.40 is intended to be run with its pump and a tuned pipe, while the 1.60 is ported for muffler systems.

There's considerable difference between the two, so a comparison such as you're asking is not really possible.

As far as exhaust systems go for the O.S. Max 1.60 FX, O.S. has only the stock muffler. We'd not have any information on which other types of exhaust systems would be suitable for your purposes.

Sorry we can't give you a clear answer on this.
