Exhaust repacking.

I searched on this subject and think I got the jist of how to do it. It doesn't seem very complicated.

I'm just wondering how much to get. The websites linked doesn't really give you an idea of volume. I did email areapnolimit a while back and gave them the dimensions of my LeoVince SBKs and they quoted me over $100 for just their version of the "silent sport" packing material.

So how much of this stuff do I get to fill it up my pipes. Also, I've heard to pack it tight and also not to pack it too tight (stuff it method). What are the pros and cons of both.

So which one and how much should I get?

Thanks in advance.

You want a "blanket" type insulation.

For the first time doing this, I would pull the exhaust apart and measure. Make sure you have some glass tape too. Some folks use wire, I prefer the tape. It wont harm the internals of your can.

If I use the blanket type and it is too short for the length of the muffler, could I add another piece to cover the whole length or woule it have to be one continuous piece.

I measured my muffler. It's 49cm long, outer circumference is 35mm and I think the inner core circumference is 16cm because thats what the circumference of the pipe is that leads into the muffler. Would these measurements be sufficient to buy the material. I would just rather start and finish the job the same day so want to get everything I need.

You can if you pack it tightly into the canister and glass tape that area where the seam is located real good.. I would also check Jeggs or Summit Racing....they sell it in different lengths too, I believe.
