Title: Exhaust processor end cap

Abstract: An exhaust processor is provided having an exhaust processor body, first, and second end caps. The exhaust processor body includes an outer shell and a substrate positioned to lie within the outer shell. The outer shell includes an outer surface facing away from the substrate, an inner surface facing toward the substrate, spaced apart first and second ends. The inner surface of the outer shell defines a first end cap region at the first end, a second end cap region at the second end, and an inner surface side. The first end cap is positioned to lie in the first end cap region, and the second end cap is positioned to lie in the second end cap region. Each of the first and second end caps include a crimpable flange that is sizable to include a size substantially equal to the inner surface size of the inner surface of the outer shell.
