Cheap vs. Expensive Mufflers!

In this episode of Engine Masters presented by AMSOIL and sponsored by Mr. Gasket and Earl’s Vapor Guard, we explore whether the price of a muffler makes a difference when it comes to performance. What’s the real difference in power between mufflers that cost $40 each versus $100 each? What’s the power difference between a 2½- and 3-inch exhaust on a mild street engine that only makes about 350 hp? And is it true that “too big a pipe loses torque,” as you hear so often online or at the muffler shop? Every one of these questions from viewers gets solid, dyno-proven answers in this episode of as we run all the tests with a perfectly average, 350ci small-block Chevy using Thrush and Magnaflow mufflers.

Using aluminum foil to clean pitted chrome ... See MoreSee Less

That trick is old as I am LOL

Try it with tin foil and coca cola. Use diet Coke so you don't get all sticky and attract ants. Rinse the coke off and rub it with a good wax.

I use that also, but my friend told me about this and for some reason it fills in quite a few of the pits

Good to know

Ya it works great especially when used with a little water for lubrication

Ronnie Frates

I have used , SOS Pads 👍

Works good on wheels

Gordon Louis Harris

Get a real costmers and show them your spanners work

Actually it's called Burnishing

Mark Dunn 🤔

It doesn't clean it just fills up the pits with aluminum foil

but anyway everything remains scratched, it needs a new chrome plating
