    why not buy the original flowmaster 40´s instead? and save someones job while buying a good set of mufflers. for what its worth its alitle to comon that the thrush welded are not welded properly on the inside. and if you are anyway planing on buying cutouts save the money and get real flowmasters instead with that type of mufflers there isnt much of a point running with open cutouts soundvise anyway

    I like loud cars I just hate tickets more, Every Cherry Bomb car I've heard sounded like shit to me but it was always on a near stock car that somebody wanted to sound fast like these Honda's that sound like dirt bikes out there.

    What is the best muffler to use to prevent drone. The flowmasters on my car cause me to wear earplugs on a long highway drive.

    My dynomax super turbos have really grown on me. Did not like them at all when first installed. But after a few hundred miles i think they have finally broke in. Sound is deep and clean. No crazy done, but i do have an h-pipe. Gets a ton of compliments on the sound too.

    I like some TONE in the car which glasspacks don't usually give you

    I wish to hell I knew who made the 'same as" the old school Roadrunner/ GTX/ Superbee mufflers. Those things sounded GREAT

    All you guys preachin' Thrush -- have they IMPROVED in the last few years? I can remember when you could NOT lift a Maremont/ or Walker ORIGINAL Corvair turbo in one hand, but I could take a pair of Thrush turbo knock offs and hold one in each hand out at arms length.

    In our "Jeepin" days we used to run REAL turbo mufflers, that is, Walker,/ Maremont OEM type replacement for Corvair turbos They went on the 340 Landcruiser when I built it in about 1976, and were still on it when I junked it a couple years ago.

    While I usually try and buy American flowmaster have been know to have bad welds inside also. Plenty of guys with loose parts inside them rattling around.

    thrush has three basic lines of fullbodied mufflers from what i can remember right now,they have the realy flat ones i would guestimate the caseing to be 3 1/4x8" and the thicker ones that are about 4-4½x9-9½" the bigger ones still not what i would call heavy duty but about the same type of quality as walkers cheaper line of standardmufflers called "true fit" they last ok for what they cost but they are nowhere near a walker quietflow or a true stock muffler.

    its pretty rare over here to hear about someone having a problem with a real flowmaster loosing a wingplate but have seen a few to many of the trush welded loose a plate turning them into metalmaracas,but it may just be that there is fewer musclecars around here running flowmasters. anyway good to learn alitle more:)

    I would like to have the flowmasters but dont have the cash.

    I would like to hear the bullet muffers on a muscle car and see if they sound good.Has anyone used them?

    glasspacks that dont kneck down in the middle cant be anymore restrictive then a chambered muffler. I have 18 inch flo-pro glass packs that didnt have any inlets or outlets and they are 3 inch diameter inside, the exhaust guy welded on the inlets and outlets to fit my 2 1/4 inch exhaust pipe.
    I dont see how an 18 inch glass pack with a 3 inch core diameter could be restrictive at all.

    Want a set? I've got a pair of them I took OFF of my g/f's truck. 2 1/2" inlet/outlet, center/offset. They're not pretty, but they work as well as Flowmasters ever do. Sorry, I HATE flowmasters, apparently I'm in the minority though.

    Pay shipping from CA and they're yours. Pm me if you want 'em.

    The first thing I did in 1973 when I bought my 69 340 Swinger was to go to the closest Midas muffler shop and had them put on a pair of Big Daddy glass packs. I remember a quiet rumble but when I nailed it, it had a loud crisp sound, especially with the chrome tips. A while later when I put headers on it, I had Walker turbo mufflers put on but with the tail pipes exiting out the sides in front of the back tires. That was loud! I can't stand the loud now....the car now has reproduction mufflers from Accurate. A very nice idle tone but pretty quiet at cruise speeds.

    Just my experiences.....
