Re: Project "Brutus"

The stack is one of my favorite features, lol... My only concern is volume level when the windows are open. It may end up with a muffler, yet And I pressure washed it when I got home

HAHA!! That's exactly what I tell people!! The turbo really does tone it down a lot. I LOVE the way it sounds right now. Especially at lower RPM's, you know it means business

Insulated?? I would not have thought to do that. What sort of insulation did you use? This is one of those fun projects that I'm looking forward to doing on my bus some day when I want to avoid more demanding tasks, but still feel like I got something done.

Re: Project "Brutus"

I just used pink foam and then great stuff to seal it. I cut it nice and tight so it was pretty much a press fit. And that was EXACTLY my mentality last night. It was an easy task, it looked good, and I didn't really have to think much

Re: Project "Brutus"

did you just use a router to give the insulation a place to sleep?

Re: Project "Brutus"

I should have taken a picture before I covered it all up. I have pretty deep channel there already, so I didn't need to route a channel in the trim. When I said it was a press fit, I was referring to width. I have about a 3/8" air gap between the insulation and the trim.
