Cherry Bomb Turbo II mufflers: Are they any good?

I am about to add headers to my 305 GMC pickup and with it will com exhaust. I'm leaning towards the cherry bomb turbo II, but I don't know if I should try to save money with them or go to a flowmaster. I want it to rumble, but it doesn't have to shake the world around me. I am far more interested in performance since the truck looks like I stole if from Lamont Sanford. I want it to be more of a street rod than a mud truck and I rarely do any kind of pulling. I just want to find out from someone who has used or heard them if they are any good. I was thinking about glass-packs, but after reading everything I could in the forums I don't think that that is the way I want to go. Can anyone give me any suggestions or input?

Man are they still selling those. Most of us bought those things like 30 years ago Those were the years when we did no have to nickels to rub together. They are real cheap and yes you will replace those suckers once you find a nice job.

Yes, they still make them and they are cheap, but I don't really want them. I've read that about the glasspacks, thats part of the reason I don't want them. But the Turbo II's are a standard muffler. I was considering the glasspacks to reduce backpressure, but I think any performance muffler will do well. I'll have true dual exhaust when I get finished instead of the factory single out so I'll be happy with that power for a while.

Glasspacks and Cherry Bombs are the absolute worst exhaust products out there. Get Hooker Aero Chamber mufflers or Flowmasters. It sounds like you are looking for your mufflers at your local parts store. Don't get them there, get them from Summit, PAW, or Jegs by mail.

The cherrybomb turbo 2 not sure if it would be a good choice but i have the cherry bomb extreme and its loud sounds great to you wont be dissapointed. glass packs are good to, or if you want to make it real loud go with purple hornies my brother is getting them on his 69 gmc bolted up to his headers, he has a 350

Glass packs don't flow well. The Chery Bomb Turbo II is not a glass pack. I have run them before and they sound good to me. I dont know what the flow numbers are but I did see consistent 1-2 mpg increase in gas mileage. For the money I don't think you can beat them.

CherryBombs

The Tubo II is not a standard muffler. It looks standard from the outside but is a low restriction muffler. CherryBomb has designed some new mufflers that sound great and outflow the Blowmasters by a ton. I saw a live flow test between the 2. Blowmasters were 43% efficient and the comparable CBomb Pro was 78% efficient. Pretty much any Turbo muffler will perform the same just depends on how much $$ you want to spend.
