Default Inside the tune pipe

Hi all, may I know do we need to do cleaning inside the tune pipe regularly? If yes, how you do it. Thanks

Not really...you should be able to set the pipe "on end" and let any excess oil and stuff drain out... I like to throw the pipe[s] in the oven to get the oil nice and hot [which really thins it out and makes it come out easier] then just stand the pipes up and let them drain.

For a thorough cleaning [both outside and inside] most people buy a cheapy Crock Pot from a Target, Walmart etc and "slow cook" the pipes inside the pot, with antifreeze solution for several hours....the pipes literally come out like they are brand new again [except for scratches and dents ]
