What did you end up doing in place of the muffler and how do you like it?

i didn't notice any mpg changes but it removed 7 lbs and it allowed the construction of a simpler rear belly pan and that was the goal

I have been looking over your pictures. I want to start on some belly pans for my Echo but the contours down there are frustrating. Would you mind showing some more pictures of what you did and where you fastened them/what you fastened them with? Maybe some insight on how you designed your belly work? The rear belly pan you have is interesting, what did you use to reinforce it? Do you have anything at the front, where the torsion bar is, to block air from getting inside it? Thanks!

for my front belly and rear belly pan i used this
Rawlplug Nylon Plasterboard Self Drill Fixings & Screws (Pack of 25)
i screwed this in the bumper and in the oem belly pan. here some pictures of my belly pans







old belly pan







for my middle belly pan i used this Carbon Steel Toggle Bolt, Zinc Plated Finish, Mushroom Head, Combination Phillips Slotted Drive, Meets ASTM B633, Right Hand Threads, Inch | AmazonSupply.com in the holes of the frame to make a aluminium frame and i did the belly pan on the frame.

Nice, that gives me a lot to look at. In your opinion, how necessary is having the additional support framework?
