Does Anyone Know What
Aircraft This is From?

All I know about this is that it is from WW2 and is American .

There is two small stamps on it one says 291 W and is in a circle , the other says 275 and that is also in a circle.

Mike Davey (an 'Old' member from my previous website) says:

"It's a flame damping exhaust. Looking at the mounting flange it doesn't look like it is off any kind of aero engine I know. It could be from an airfield vehicle?"
 

 

General Electric B.22 Exhaust
Driven Turbo Supercharger.

What is it from?

This is from a Boeing B17 Flying Fortress.

What does it do?

It was essential in maintaining high altitude performance. The supercharger was driven by engine exhaust gases blowing a turbine bucket wheel to compress rarified air at high altitude and provide the engine carburetors with the necessary volume of air for efficient combustion.
