    Search this site for baffles. There's some info about making your own.

    or get some straight pipe from an auto parts store and weld it together they even have chrome tips or you could wrap them with exhaust tape...then like tele said you can make your own baffles or buy some. just google home made pipes and you should be able to find a shit ton of info...welcome to the site
