you really should have at least a little backpressure. I decided to go with the hooker hgh flow mufflers.. basically they take the pipe down from 4" to 3" and have a baffle in them. still straight through.. still pretty loud.
Vette(s): 1982 Black, ZZ4, Hooker Side Pipes, 3.55 Rear,
Rebuilt & upgraded 700R4, All new suspension, brakes, & new Charcoal interior.
I have the glass packs in mine, not too loud except with the pedal to the floor they are loud. I wish I had gone with the flow thrus (the ones CTHULHU likes). My buddy has the flow thru and they are nice sounding. They also are the cheapest muffler.
Vette(s): 1972 conv, 4-speed, 350, 200hp, numbers match, rally wheels, war bonnett yellow w/white top. good condition, nice driver.
As long as we are on exaust, I am going to put a 2 1/2 in system on my small block 350. Up from the 1 7/8 - 2in. I am trying to stay close to original, with a up grade in H/P. Can I get, is there such a thing as larger O.E.M. RAMS HORN exaust manifolds? I have looked on the C-3 parts site on E-Bay to no avail. THANKS. Mark
