Introduction: Ghetto Muffler Fix

About: I build things
DISCLAIMER: Like all of my Instructables; this contains adult humor.

This is what happens when your exhaust is horribly rusted (from someone parking it for long periods in wet grass….)

And you bottom out on snow ruts on residential roads (cause the city you live in is stupid and too cheap to plow), denting said rusted pipe..

And then you hit a big chunk of snow that fell off a mini-van in front of you (cause that’s just they way things happen to you).

Step 1: Step 1

Since I grew up in the Ghetto of Edmonton (yep that’s right the upper middle class suburbs of the West End).

 Like multi-millionaire J-Lo, I know all about keeping it real….

Step 2: Step 2

and real is using an old bench top vise (stacked on spare lumber to reach the right height) to crimp a zoodle can around your severed exhaust pipe.

Step 3: Step 3

It’s very important to crimp that can really well, I had some problems with mine coming loose and had to upgrade to a connected 2 zoodle can model.

(Yeah I know major shiny Bling Bling, but don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got.)

Step 4: Step 4

You can tell if your system is hooked up right when 50% of the exhaust gas comes out the back of the car.
I like kickin it Old Skool so I went for the 30% out the back, 85% shootin out of the Zoodle can seams in every direction.

Step 5: Step 5

If your wonderin where the extra 15% of exhaust came from, it’s from the extra noise of the severed exhaust…. which like a Type-R sticker on a Ford Tempo adds mad horsepower.

Remember Pimpin Ain’t Easy.
