One of those big cannon mufflers will cost you $150-200 USED on ebay. Just go to farm store and put a muffler on it

u know what i would like, one of the black stack the kubotas use. they got a rain topper and there just flat black with an integrated muffler. if i used one of them would i need to have an extra bracket? would i have to bolt it right onto my manifold?

Do you still have the old muffler? If so and it is shot you can yse the end that bolts to the motor and cut it after the bend and then get a muffler from tsc or like place. Just weld it to the fitting and run it straight up with a flaper. It will not hurt the hp.

now i know this might sound insane, but ive heard without bracketing the vibrations on a stack can crack an engine block, im not sure about manifolds, any idea? also do you think im losing horsepower from no muffler at all?

In some cases, YES, a bracket is needed to prevent breaking the manifold or block. also do you think im losing horsepower from no muffler at all? No, but you will burn the exhaust valve quicker with no muffler.
