Anyone that has this muffler, did you need to slightly file away the Raptor 90 fan shroud to get the pipe on the engine?

I'm sure it's gonna be a great pipe to use, but what pis*es me off is that the pipe is supposed to be DESIGNED for the raptor 90, and yet I'm gonna need to file away the fan shroud AND the pipe comes into contact with the body - something that the guy at "Motors and Rotors" said wouldn't happen!

Ahhh well, not that big job I guess!

Yep yep, just did that now!
And to be fair, it only came into contact very slightly with the canopy.
Any idea why the exhaust hole on the actual muffler is so much smaller than the engines exhaust hole? Guessing its done for optimum power/tuning.

Don't think it is done for optimum power and tuning,more like it so its the original template so it is the same shape to fit other engines ?

Maybe I am wrong though, anyone ??????

The engine's exhaust hole is really only the port area of the sleeve. But the sharp edges still bother me. My Dremel will be introduced to my SB-18 soon.
