I just bought a drill bit extension and drilled out the inside of the baffle. another member did it also. much cleaner and easier than all that cutting. I'm really surprised Low and Mean didn't think of it.

I'm really surprised Low and Mean didn't think of it.I think someone commented to Low and Mean (on Facebook maybe?) about why they didnt just go to drilling the inside baffle. They replied something along the lines of, its a more advanced mod requiring tools that not everyone might have.In my opinion, cutting a hole in the center baffle wall was alot easier and had much better results. But I did have to go out and buy about $20 worth of tools.
i noticed a small power gain on take off as well.
I used this Milwaukee Bi-Metal 1 1/2" hole saw drill bit... With their 12" extender bit. I only had a 7.2V Black and Decker POS power drill so it took me a long long long time to wear down the aluminum and I ended up punching through it with a hammer on the end of the extender bit to finally punch it through. Just remember to put a pilot drill bit on the end of the extender as I forgot this step and the piece of aluminum rear baffle I could not get out after until it ended up flying out the exahust and going "ping, ping, ping" down the road when I test road her after...
