Default Heater Muff

Last summer I replaced my firewall mounted oil cooler for a baffle mounted. Now I have no heat,

Has anyone else done this and what muff did you use and did you use to get heat back with the existing firewall baffle/diverter set up? Yes not proper naming, sorry....

TIA!

Ed

Default Heres One Idea

We put one of these on our RV-6. Ordered it 9” long to fit on our 4 pipe Vetterman exhaust system. Provides far more warmies than the Vans stock muff.

I was looking at that one but The bottom cowling comes awful close to the exhaust as its leaving so I need to go with something shorter. Looking at the Cessna 6 in type.

I already determined I can used the existing firewall equipment and the 3 inch scat tube. I need to whip up a 3"-2.5" adapter to connect to the cessna 6 inch heat muff.
