Novarossi's Tuned Pipe Recipe.

1. Pour 500ml of Engine Coolant into borrowed pot from wifes kitchen.

2. Simmer on stove for 10mins

3. Put tuned pipe and manifold into pot, using wire bottle brush every 10mins to clean out the internals and externals of pipe.

4. Repeat process for about 1 hour, cook to taste

5. Once removed from stove, use Autosol or similar polishing cleaner to give pipe brand new shine.

or , bring coolant to the boil in a rice cooker, let simmer for 2 days.

Oven cleaner works a treat on chrome pipes, not so good on
hard coated ones.As for motor cleaning,I spray mine with
water dispersant spray, scrub with a stiff brush,then blow it
off with air.....

Default Pipe and Manifold Cleaning

Buy youself a slow cooker, fill it with 100% concentrated radiator coolent (Nulon works well).

Put the pipe and manifold in Friday night, leave the slow cooker outside, have a few scoobbie doo's and go to bed....

Sat morning, strap on the rubber "bend over and cough" gloves, pull the pipe and manifold with tongs into a bucket of water, scrub with an old toothbrush.....

Flush with Metho and blow out.....

If you do it after every race meeting the pipe/manifolds easy to clean.

Simple..

Dont use the 50/50 diluted coolant. Turns the pipe black.
