Default Great planes fabric covered j3 cub

I am trying to use a Saito 82 four stroke inverted in this plane and not sure what muffler set up to use. Does anyone have any suggestions? Bought a Pitts to try and it was way too big. Couldn't fit the cowl over it without really chopping it up. Has anyone tried the Keleo exhaust in this particular plane? Looks smaller than the Pitts. The exhaust through Keleo that I have on my OS91's fits and looks good, not to mention sounds good too.

That's the 1/5 scale w/ the ~85" span? That's a great engine choice. I'd try J-Tec to see about a muffler that'll mount to the exhaust port and exhaust straight down. I bet that'll work, and if they don't have one in stock, if you talk to them, have all the dimensions and explain what you want, they'll make one up for you. Not too expensive, either.
Good luck!
