Brian is about 15 years behind. His info is all pretty standard stuff most any motor head can figure out.

His links, info and even name is pretty much banned from this site. Best to just leave his name off here. If you think he's great, keep it to yourself.

Depends on how good you are. I always told my customers to run the pi$$ out of my motors, just don't overheat them. If they are going to fail, they usually will in the first 10-20 hours of operation. If you overheat it..... that's operator error. (I didn't cover operator stupidity.)

With a straight pipe, it's all about tuned length. Too shrt can hurt power, or even overheat an exhaust valve. Too long can hurt power.... mufflers rob power. I'd probably cut the side panel and go with about an 14-18" pipe. Play with length if you want. Length does matter. If you arent game for cutting the panel, you may be able to get some length in front of the motor. Keep in mind, bends can also affect how well it scavenges.

a pipe bent in a s shape that goes out the factory grill opening would be about 17 inches. I did a mock up with a stiff wire. thanks for the information.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
