Gutting OEM back box.

My current back back is rusting so I have an OEM replacement.

This leaves the old back box open for some surgery. What is inside the back box?

I was thinking of welding some straight pipes inside if there isn't much to remove.

Stealth OEM look

Re: Gutting OEM back box.

Inside very little, usually a pipe or two, some "chambers" and perforated sections, you could remove the front facing end plate and install a straight through section, weld it up and spray it black or silver? Though the neighbors may not be amused and its just possible it could effect the general running of the engine ?
