Apparently, my computer just had some sort of weird aneurism. It looked like my last entry double-posted- so I deleted one and they both went away. Aargh. So, again-

Time to put the Ka-Pow on Boss Hoss. Built a wicked custom muffler for this thang, Gatling gun style. The basics are: a 2 1/2lb fire extingusher, some 1" EMT (electrical conduit) and some 1/2" EMT, and some assorted bits and pieces. The name Boss Hoss kept bringing me images of the wild west, gangstas, and guns. I was originally gonna build an exhaust ust like the one I did for CentsLess but with the ports up front. That turned into directing the exhaust stream straight foreward instead of off to the side, which led to a gun notion, and of course, that wasn't good enough, either. Long story short, Gatling gun!
Looks neat, sounds cool, and gives a great visual with the smoke.

Ohhh! I love the Gun Muffler!! And the Coal looks awesome! will it roll coal while you're driving? I could imagine all the smoke will getting in your face if you're driving bit slower, but time will tell. And it sounds good! FFs Diesel has a ugly sounding knock at idle, your muffler hides the knock a bit!

That grid heater is pretty cool. Wouldn't mind one for a oppy, lol. Is that hood latch spring loaded too? I dont recall you discussing it, it's a cool little piece.

Have you decided on a paint scheme for the gat-fler? Also maybe make the air box look like an ammo-mag to feed the gat.

Ok, it's time for another progress update!
I can't hardly get anything done with this heat. GAH!

What I DID do, was build the new air intake system. In keeping with the quasi-military theme that seemed to stem from the gatling gun muffler, I was looking for ideas for the air intake system. The criteria was pretty simple. The end result had to be air and water tight, to the inlet, which was to be a snorkel of some kind. The filter had to remain protected from immediate element infiltration, namely water and mud. Basically, they system design could not allow for the filter to get wet or muddy, because that would severely impair performance. Whether rain, deep water, or splashing- nothing could hit the filter.
A viewer suggested that an ammunition can could be a good look to go with the gun, and I went with that.
Keeping words minimal, I managed to re-use a stock filter and the air cleaner base, housed within a surplus .50cal ammo can.
From there, I adapted on a piece of pipe (harvested from the remains of the stock muffler, and made a trip to my local plumbing department. A 1 1/2" ABS trap adapter, a 90, an ABS nipple, a reducer, and a grate came together to make a no-tools-to-attach/release air intake tube tucked under the dash and away from the elements. The grate in the end of the tube will keep varmints out, same as I did on Commando. Oh, I also painted the muffler. Pics and video:

Nice work on the exhaust and air filter system. I like the exhaust, very unique and looks great painted.

That's a tad large for my tastes but it's definitively a well executed and functional.   You put a lot of effort into keeping the element dry.

I was hoping to get away with the smaller one, myself. Unfortunately, it just couldn't happen, and there are only so many available choices. Basically, it's what I had to do.

The writing on the side of the ammo box is just killer, LOL.
