I did this once, I believe it was 1/2" water pipe at the exit from the head. Someone else had screwed it in and it was rusted on. So I cut it off, welded on a joiner, and added a regular "can type" muffler on the end of that. Total length was about 16", stuck out past the end of the cart and was easy to hit your shins on it, but it sounded good.

take an intake manifold off an old lawnmower if you can find one or use an exhaust manifold and it should directly fit, i know because i did it with my couzin this summer but we had to buy a silenser...too loud and we didnt want to risk burning a valve..if you put this on your 5hp it will throw small flames occasionally.

FUCK!! I can't believe you. Think for a second, please.

You want to "build a straight pipe". GET A FUCKING STRAIGHT PIPE. if you find a bent pipe lying on the side of the road, bend it straight, and you have a straight pipe fuktard. Weld it on. You don't need plans. Please use your head or it'll rot.

Heres what i did, The exhaust should be threaded on the inside, measure that, ( i cant remember what it was for mine), go to any hardware store buy a metal pipe that size, make sure its threaded also and just screw it in, mine was threaded at both ends and was too long so you might have to shorten yours also

Buy a new or used header off a racing kart. Used ones can be had for about 15-20 bucks, and the performance is alot better compaired to a old piece of water pipe.

You don't have to put a straight header on it. You can buy "loop" headers also.

just cut the bolt up flange off a muffler and weld a 3/4" pipe to that
