I seen your pics on AS. Looks good.    I tried to open pics there but they kept getting hung up. I could see them in the thumbnails.

Your file size was over 1MB per photo is why. Here 400Kb or smaller to use software here.

... to pull the limiters out, I take the stock adjustment screws (red cap that you normally turn?) and back them all the way out till they come out, I will see some form of nub, I cut that with a razor blade completely off.  I then screw the screws back in?

Once the screws are all the way back in, for the high low and idle, how many turns on each for a safe start up with a muffler mod?

Turn the adjustment screws all the way counterclockwise lining up nub and slot. Take a drywall screw (or the proper removal tool if your buddy has one) and pull the limiter caps out. Trim the nubs and reinstall. Turn gently clockwise till the screws seat. Turn the L screw 1 1/2 turns CCW, turn the H screw 2 turns CCW. Should be a good starting point.
