That's way cool! I've never seen that before. That's really a neat way to relieve exhaust. I'm already thinking of some variations from that one idea. How about chrome (no, stainless), angle cut at the end? ...

Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

yea i like the look
curious if there was any function to it
i'm sure experimentation would lead to different results, sounds etc.
kinda like a pipe on a motorcycle
so far i can't find any other info on it

He said its not that loud in the video due to the camera being in a waterproof case so it really muffled the sound but when idling and such its actually quiet cause the tubes are under water but when you get it going and the exhaust tubes come up out of the water it gets really loud and you are well heard. LoL
