Hope you guys were serious when I read about burning out the sludge by throwing the pipe in a bonfire. Got invited to my sons house for an ice skating party and he said he was having a fire....so I roasted my JT pipes. I'm pretty sure they were lighter when I carried them back to the truck once they cooled down.

I just recently did the same with my RT2 pipe. It's the best way I've found to clean out all of the old oil and carbon build up. You know it's working when you see tan / yellowish smoke coming out the ends. I know my RT pipe weighs at least 1/3 less after its "roasting".

I understand this is the accepted method but it seems like this would weaken the metal?

How many times can you do this to the same pipe?

What about the sound deadening/packing?

Thanks
Jonathan
