I don't know which way to go on my smokestack. I was hoping to get an opinion or two. I just got done reading a bunch of old ones but didn't really answer my question.
I have some 304ss tubing 6-3/8" ID. One advantage=it's free. According to the calculator I need 609.84 cu in. This is how it would work out
6-3/8" = 19"H
5" = 31"H
4" = 48"H
I've set it up there and aesthetically it looks good but mechanically is it too big? I think 19" would be too short. Can I use this 6-3/8" dia but leave it longer maybe 30ish?
Now this is what Ribwizzard likes-

Gives a good combination of looks and flow.
This works out to be a 6" dia x 27" long (pretty close to what I'm thinking)
Another possible idea is to use 5" inside of the 6-3/8" stainless one and leave an air gap (I really want to use the ss one and polish it up)
One more thing I really couldn't find a definitive answer on. Is there any benefit to using a plenum over not? I have domed ends and it seems to me I could use that space just as well. Sorry about the quick sketch
I hope you can see what I'm thinking on the sketch
Lastly - sorry to rehash an old discussion but everyone seems to make some great and valid points. I'm not sure which way to go
