    I want to get a new muffler put on my Electra but I don't want t go the glasspack route.

    What mufflers will give a good deep sound that really makes the car sound nice? Flowtech, flowmaster, thrush? I am looking to keep it under 80 bucks.

  2. in my opinion , flowmasters just sound crappy on a stock or mild motor. i suggest you use a turbo muffler

    Hell, I use glasspacks. With the bigger engines, or for less noise, I'd use a LONG glasspack. Brockman Mellowtones make them any length you want. Using a 36 or longer muffler will help lower the noise, but keep the deep rumble. Brock will advise you on what length will give you the results you want.
    Using other mufflers, like Flowmasters, will make it sound like a GodDam Mustang! Turbos might be too quiet.

    I have a pair from Waldron. They are quiet driving, but will make some noise when I get on it. Very mellow sound. Waldron advertises in Old cars Weekly.

    run straight pipes all the way out the back with some pencil tips and let em rap! run a crosspipe up front so each bank can take advantage of both pipes. let the people start complainin'.

    pencil tips: smaller chrome tips exiting under the bumper
