Good to see this thread, because I need to change mine out. I have the 07 style with the M/C disc in the middle, but it blew off as well as one of the internal baffles. I now have the type with the flap to replace them.

I cut the pipes as mentioned above. Made a reducer, cut the transom to fit the larger pipes, put 5200 in the original screw holes and a bunch around the tip and flange where it goes through the hull. Everything went very very smoothly.

I love them
Looks awesome Kyle!! You know your going to get a call when my pair shows up!!

Now on the 5200 marine adhesive used now days. Yes you will have a beat down deluxe removing that from anything it touches. I seriously never want to remove the MCOCD 5200 job that I did. I can see it being extremely hard to separate.




Sound wise...... I don't know. I run straight pipes and there is a slight baffle in these tips to act more as a flapper not a muffler. It was loud as I'm running open exhaust but not louder. It was lower toned but sounded the same. I'm guessing the tone was because I went from 3" to 3.5" exhaust.


Hey Bturner. I know someone "RAT" who will beat you down with severe MCOCD to just have 1 of your tips. Mitch has 1 left and he's looking for an extra to complete a pair.
Kyle, so you used the 5200 adhesive to mount the new tips? Your not planning to screw them in?

Also, how much glass did you have to cut to get them in? What did you use? Any issues?

Yes I used 5200 blue and screws.


Here is what I did.

Cut the angled V drive section off.

The non cut part of the trash section, put it on a piece. Of thick paper and trace out the circle of the 3.5" pipe. Then slide it on the tip. Trace the flange. Cut that out.

Then put it up to the existing hole. I used the outer and lower edge of the factory hole.

You will see what I'm talking about. The speedo bracket for the rubber hose is in the way so you have to center the tips slightly.

Then take a sharpie and make a center hole guide to cut along on both sides. Measure 2x and cut it out with a jig saw.


Then I used a drill with a sanding disc to make the hole slightly bigger to fit the tip. It also makes the hole perfectly round this way. I'll take a pic of the drill disc. You can pick them up at "lowes" or auto zone. I'll take a pic so you can see what I'm talking about.

You are not cutting that much of the boat.

Lastly run the 1/2" drill bit in reverse to countersink the 3 holes. Then take a smaller bit to drill out the new holes. I used the same screws that came off old set up.

I put 5200 in the old holes and smoothed out with a putty knife. Ran a big fat bead around the flange and the pipe that runs through hull. Put a dab in the 3 new holes and put it together.

Very easy and smooth.

It took me a few hours.

Looky what I found in my garage when I walked out from lunch... I didn't realize the MC plate was not a flapper, but a welded solid baffle plate. That should not fall off.

Wish I had a few hours in the next few days to make it happen.

Where did you buy the 5200? Any other option worth considering to save on the 7 days?

Home Depot carries 5200.

Even though Kyle is going to jump my butt, I would not use 5200 for anything on my boat. 4200 is more than enough and regular ole' silicone will work fine as well. 5200 is way too permanent for these exhaust tips, considering the center "cover" is notorious for falling off. I've replaced mine twice in 5 years.

You can get the blue 5200 at Home Depot or "lowes" in the painting section. A small tube will work. It come I'd caulk gun tube or a smaller squeeze tube.

Your scaring me man. Maybe I should have used 4200

Either will work.

Should I remove them today and put 4200 on instead while I can get them off????

Seriously scared now

Sodar, how does the center cover come off? Is the chrome MC just attached to a plate that is welded to the main pipe on three posts. Sorry, I only did a 30 second inspection and I'm back at work now.

I've never taken a pick of mine, but here is one. The welds just break.
