Default muffler cleaner/tamiya spray?

a while back, somebody told me about a spray that you could put on your exhaust to help keep it clean. I thought it was by Tamiya, but I cannot find it. Anybody know what this is and where I can get it?

I don't know about a spray but I had someone tell me to put the whole pipe in anti-freeze on low heat and it will come out like new. He said to leave it in for a few hours and use a tooth brush. I have not tried this yet but I will when the season starts up again.

Default pipe cleaner

Go with the anti-freeze/crock pot method. You must use low heat. Place the pipe and header in the warm anti-freeze overnight(sometimes longer), then use a toothbrush or cloth to remove the rubber and oil buildup. You will not believe the results. Nate

Are you looking for something to keep it from getting dirty or to make it clean.

I just use mothers mag polish. It can even fix scratches and so forth , makes it look like mirror.

Otherwise if you want to clean it , nothing better than denatured alcohol...by far the best Ive used for cleaning pipes....use high pressure spray and your good.

i'm looking for the stuff to spray on it when new, so when your done running, you can wipe it off and stuff don't stick to it.

The best stuff out there for cleaning off burnt exhaust residue and burnt on rubber tire flakes is Demon-Clean engine cleaner. Quick, easy and a can will last you a long time. great for cleaning engines during a teardown too.
I doubt you will find anything that will act like a non stick where nothing will burn on to the pipe.

Click on my website and follow the links to the new company that owns the Demon Clean product line.
