Foil Delete

Did the foil delete today and all I can say is it is SO WORTH IT. The sound and looks are worth the 1/2 hour it takes to do it.

As far as cleaning the tube. HEre is my technique. Peel it back by hand. If it gets stuck spray carb/brake cleaner on the insulation and it peels easier. Then spray dwna dn scrape with a plastic scraper. Let dry a bit. Scerape and peel by hand. Heat the pipe from inside out with a torch then clean of the outside with the torch. Wipe clean after it cools.

Ya you have to fully pull the IC pipe out. It's not that bad...If I remember correct you have to pull the battery, bat box and intake off. Really simple
