Being a Tri-Y design it should emphasize the torque peak, no?

I think the Teflon tape is going to smoke as it comes up to running temp.Nice try though.

Teflon gives off poisonous gasses when it burns. Not my first pick for exhaust systems.

I briefly wondered if someone had rigged up an engine to pump water with four of its eight cylinders.
