what mufflers are you using?

i want to do the exhaust on my truck. im looking for something that sounds good but isnt ridiculously loud either. no straight pipes/open headers (dont want to sound like a tractor) or glasspacks because everybody and their mom has them and i think they sound like crap (too poppy sounding). anyways, i was looking at borla stingers or XR1s, dynomax bullets, and bassani makes some good sounding stuff but ive only heard them on mustangs. if you guys got suggestions or even videos that would be sweet!

One member on here (HIO Silver I think?) has dual Moroso spiral flow mufflers on one of his trucks. Sounds pretty damn good IMO.

Dual thrush glasspacks. I've never heard anyone say they're "poppy". They sound just as deep as flowmaster that cost twice as much. Not too loud, yet deep and sound awesome if ya stand on it...however if you're gettin headers they may sound different. I got a video on youtube of em on the truck and running...

I'm also in the same boat as Dave145. The short, small body glasspacks are the ones that pop. I had a 36", 4" body Heartthrob glasspack on my 460 with stock manifolds and 2-1. Sounded pretty good.



I've got the same GP on my 300 now, sounds halfway decent.

I ran dynomax bullets on my 04 stang with a 4.6 v8 and headers...lots of drone, but a good smooth sound at acceleration.

Yup... that's me. Good memory!

Moroso Spiral Flows.. 2.5-inch.... selected them for their compact size and no fiberglass to crumble and flake away.

All my dentsides ever get are 8-18" glasspacks...cherrybomb style. Hooker Super Comps or Sandersons in to 2.25" true duals, muffled by 8-18" cherry bomb with a 3.5-4" body. Depending on the vheicle, I'll either dump under cab, in front of the rear tires or right after rear tires. It's definitely not an exhaust for the faint of heart, it will put hair on your chest.

Use the word myopic in a sentence

He wore glasses, because he was nearsighted, or myopic, plus his opinions were a little short-sighted: also myopic.

I got a kick out of that!

Anyone ever used Walkers?

I was thinking about using those.... Hooker headers into the Walkers.

You talking about the old school Walker Turbo Tubes? If so, I am planning for those on mine, but walker quit making them.

Now they are called powersticks by chambered exhaust.
