How to tell if Packing is bad?

Recommended Posts

well like it says how can you tell for sure packing has gone bad on a silencer. I have a fmf shorty and alot have said the packing life is really short. But when my stocker went on my 01 i had no power and it ran like garbage. I do not believe my packing has ever been done on my 04 by me or the previous owner. When i look into the pipe i do not see any packing blowing out or anything, but can packing go bad just from use, or getting covered in oil etc.?

what cause it to go bad? Water. Oil. Heat.

Change packing about every 20 hours.
