Exhaust / can fabrication

I have been thinking about how difficult it will be to fabricate cans. I have access to a few sheetmetal shops, etc.
I thought it could be a fun project - just an idea at this stage.

Does anyone know anything about the science(calcs) behind muffler and exhaust system design? How big, wide, volume, etc. of cans & pipes for a particular engine.

you might be able to find spec sheets of some popular cans and start there. I'm not willing to bet money that this will be easy though. Alternatively, if you can find the exterior dimensions you could extrapolate the interior dimensions.
