Title: Crossover muffler

Abstract: A performance-enhancing crossover muffler for internal combustion engines includes an enclosed case having an inside, and two inlet pipes located inside the case having respective inlet ends extending through a frontside of the case for connection with two outside engine exhaust manifolds, and respective interior ends which merge together to define a merge entry. The muffler also includes one or more outlet pipes located inside the case with outlet end extending through a backside of the case for connection with an outside tailpipe, an interior end defining a merge exit, and one or more apertures in the outlet pipe communicating with the inside of the case. The muffler further includes a piping merge zone between the merge entry and the merge exit for commingling exhaust flows from the two engine exhaust manifolds. The two inlet pipes and the piping merge zone are without communication with the inside of the case.
