It does work! Thanks. The reason I was curious about this is the homemade fiberglass packing mufflers have sometimes come apart and blocked exhaust gasses on engines and this design might be a little better. Thanks for sharing
Never heard of this but I like it. Fine in theory, but............Maybe one of these things? I don't know what it's called.
It sort of works like an exhaust header in reverse. Splitting the single pipe into three of different lengths that rejoin so the blast comes out in three staggered pops rather than one big BLAM.
Yeah I have no idea how well it would work, but it's easy enough for someone to test if they have a welder and some scrap tube laying around.Never heard of this but I like it. Fine in theory, but............

This is one of those things I'm sure must exist because it's too simple an idea for someone not to have thought of it before.
Well I guess great minds think alike. I hadn't thought about making the three pipes different diameters to account for the variation in impedance needed until after I'd posted it. Oopsy.
