Default Possible to clean the inside of my Muffler? Oval Prodrive

Hey Guys,

Before you tell me to go find a new one.. It's Prodrive Oval So nice & shiny still!
I most likely have like 50-70k miles of high horsepower cat less miles on this Axel Back..

MY ISSUE IS I bet that it is robbing me of some good horsepower. I want to clean the inside of the muffler. Get all the Carbon out.

I really don't want to sell it or replace it.. But just clean out the insides... Anyone have any ideas.. I did some researching but I find that the 4 & 2 stoke tricks is to soak it then light it on fire... not really something I can do in South Beach Miami.

Anyone know of any solutions or tricks or ideas?

Thanks,

Chuck III

Here's what I do for mufflers, including the inside of the tip.

Basically #0000 Extra Fine Steele Wool and generic glass cleaner.

The prodrive is already restrictive new at around ~320wHP or more.

Clean the tip, and exterior can, and be done with it. Or get a new muffler.
