Just curious if someone has opened one up and seen whats inside?
Take the 4 bolts holding the mid pipe to your canister off and pull the mid pipe out. The core is attatched to the midpipe and there should be packing around it. Then after the core there is the turbine spark arrestor. After the turbine there is the a chamber and the baffle/endcap. This concludes the tour of the FMF Q

but on a Q pipe, will the pink stuff be as effective? FMF claims to have invested great time and technology into their packing. It would be quite interesting if the dow corning / pink panther labelled stuff works as well. I was under the impression that the pink stuff would insulate against temperature but not sound.
FMF makes a packing pillow specific for the "Q". It comes with installation directions I've heard that the Silent Sport is a better packing

You know, I recently purchased a FMF Q and powerbomb header on Ebay. Mounted the header but have not tried it muffler.Of course I had to take it apart to see what state thepacking was in. (just fine) One thing I do note, is that the baffle looked to be lighty wrapped in what I assume is SS steel wool. I am just wondering if that comes stock or if the previous owner put that in there to mitigate early retirement of the fibreglass? Any one else had theirs apart? I could take some pics as it is still awaiting reassembly.
Here's the installation instructions for FMF's Premier Packing http://www.fmfracing...mierpacking.pdf
Sounds like that's what you have
