Hi, I new here.I just want to share some of my exprience with u guys.

This is what u have to do to repair your dent exhaust pipes.

1.Get 3 piece of thick plastic,3 rubber ban & some tap water.
2.Cover 2 holes with plastic & tighten it with rubber ban.
3.fill it up with tap water in full & cover the last holes with plastic & tighten it.
4.Last put your exhaust pipe faceing down in the freezer for 2-3 days.

After 2-3 days in the freezer your exhaust pipes should return back to it's original sizes at least 95%.

It doesnt take 2-3 days either. Usually about 2-3 hours, just long eough for the water to freeze.

I've got a pipe that I've frozen 6 times. This pipe was FLAT!. It's getting back to shape, but slowly.

Me and my dad have done this a few times with good success. Usually it takes 2 or 3 tries to get rid of a decent sized dent

What do you mean when you said facing down? The pressure port down?

The thing about this is the internals of all pipes have a thin metal baffle. My question is how do these look afterwards?
