Sir?!?
Hey Gram, this must be addressed to you...
If I'm reading the Tech article right... The washer is for backpressure...

Oh, and BTW: How-de-doo to you too!

vettesare1. I like your attitude! Like StarCruiser06 said the washers are for back pressure. Many engines are set up for a certain amount of back pressure as part of their effective performance and the R* isn't any different. Once you start playing with carb and air box settings you find yourself "tuning" the exhaust. Just part of being a big boy with big toys.

vettesare1, I read and re-read the article and if I understand it correctly the washers (and nuts/bolts) used are for securing the baffles in the pipes via the small hole at the end of the exhaust pipe. If you want to create back pressure, prior to putting the two halves together, take the large washer (about the inside diameter of the smaller pipe (or as close to 1 7/8 as possible) and tack weld it to the inside perpendicular to the exhaust flow. Then pop rivet them together. You can also halve the washer and tack weld a half in each pipe setup in the same manner. Make a set of each and go from there. M2CTS.
