You can use whatever exhaust you wish. I cut the muffler off my Honda rototiller and clamped on a piece of 1.25" chrome pipe. The power gains won't be noticed, though. The cams and carb are tuned for one specific RPM and pretty well matched. Cars are tuned for a wide RPM band, so its safe to assume that increasing breathing will make more power. Utility engines like a Briggs are tuned for one RPM, so there is very little restriction in anything on them.

Here is my tiller; chrome exhaust, chrome cold air intake. I did this because I had these parts laying around and the tiller was missing parts when I bought it. Plus it looks really cool. But I'm sure it didn't add a single bit of power. The stylish earplugs I need are an added bonus.
