Default Re: Whats the difference?

Yes - excellent post. They are basically the same thing but different. Right or wrong in the vernacular of bike tuned pipes a "silencer" is what comes with a tuned pipe and as indicated aren't restrictive as they are packed, not baffled. We refer to anything after that as a "muffler" to distinguish it from the silencer. And in fact our muffler is a baffled device and does really cut down of the nasty 2T noise. Strange that it does not seem to effect performance, possibly because it is so far downstream at that point.
