    What's the Loudest Glasspack?

     



    Not sure if this has been asked before and I know this is probably subjective to the person's opinion. With that being said, what is the loudest sounding Glasspack?

    Thank you

    Much Respect.

    Be Blessed.

    Shortest is loudest. Longest is quietest.

    inside glasspacks are little dimple puch-outs which proturde into the tube center. If you orient the dimples to the front, quieter. To the rear, louder.

    If you want LOUD go with Flowmaster 40's in the center of the pipe length in 2.5" to 3" pipe diameter, will rattle windows for a block. That said second vote on the Thrushes

    I have dual Smithy's on both of my cars and while they are loud I think the old Thrush's were louder. Smith'ys are more of a civilized loud.

    Smithy's are also much better sounding on a big block like my Olds 371. That's when they are at their peak in sweet hotrod sound. Not bad on a small block like in my 34, but not as good as on a big block car. Just my .02

    Can't it would be illegal to run strate pipes. The thrush's, are they louder than the CherryBombs? What about Purple Hornies?

    Thank you

    Never have understood the fascination with overly loud pipes.... Nothing but a cop magnet IMO.... I much prefer a nice mellow sound with a good, deep tone. Nothing worse then road trippin' with pipes that are so loud you can't hear after you get where you're going.

    If a car runs strong, it doesn't need loud pipes and a lumpy cam to advertise it....

    I got some tubo 'glass pack' thrush muffs on the truck. They look like a traditional muffler. I swear to GOD it is louder in the cab than it is outside the truck.
