    to clean the pipe, just let it soak in some type of cleaner then run like kerosene through it to wash everything out. the spray it with an air hose.

    a consideration when experimenting with cleaning a used pipe is to refrain from abrasive blasting the internals as carbon buildup may trap sand particles and release them at the wrong time like during the back pulse into the cylinder. a dip in a "hot tank' may be a thought but will all but destroy a chromed external finish. what about foaming oven cleaner or amsoil powerfoam? hmmm.

    i really enjoyed this article on pipe design. i love the science of horsepower and promote in depth understanding of the dynamics of tuning.

    i have never cleaned my fmf, but when i bought my blaster it came with a fmf exhaust. when i took the exhaust off, i tipped it over and a bunch of gas came out. i tapped it on my fence to get it all out and chunks of carbon build up started coming out. so about 8 ounces later, i could look in there and not see anymore. so

    I have had a couple of different pipes and I absolutely love the power and sound from the DMC Alien.
