the stock muffler might be fine to leave but the stock piping definately needs to go.  where the y-pipe meets is a terrible bend on my 06 frontier.  the pipes are almost crushed together which horribly reduces airflow.  i didn't test the new piping with stock muffler but the muffler is mainly sound anyway so i could see if working just as good.  good article

The quality of modern engine oils are very good. There are products like Sea Foam to clean sludge and carbon build-up. In the old days (1950's & 1960's) I used kerosine to clean the lower end and water to clean the carbon but todays engines are built of different materials. I some times use Lucas fuel treatment in the gasoline to help keep the upper end clean.

Have a good one.. Don S..

Can you get more HP out of adding a aftermarket clutch?
Such as a BAHNHOF Stage 1 Racing HD Disc Clutch?

Thanks for all the help forum!!

Clutches don't add horse power. Lighter weight clutch might get more RPM quicker but not much! A lighter flywheel would be slightly better.

Have a good one Don S..
