    Yeah I don't understand what's so special about the number. But with Government officials looking for ways to make money and EPA PHASE III taking effect rest assure some big LCO or dealership in a High traffic area will be targeted and made an example of for the industry before the year is out I'm sure.

    The easiest way I've found to clean crapon (carbon) out of mufflers is to completely remove the muffler, and use a Oxy/Ace torch on very low heat. Just get it hot enough that the stuff dries out and blows out with an air gun, without melting through the case.... It works on spark screens too, if you are VERY careful....
