are you really supposed to get your glasspacks hot and stick a hosepipe in them to bust the glass and give them that popping sound or is that just a myth?????????

Glasspack don't acually have GLASS in them, more like fiberglass. If you want that popping and cackling sound, get real short ones.

when i was a kid, a buddy of mine's mom (single parent) had an old plymouth that had the muffler fall off of it. When she went to the muffler shop, she took my buddy with her and he talked her into 'packs. I still lmao when i think 'bout her getting home from work, and my buddy would run outside and run the hose up the tailpipe and fill it full of water. that 'pack lasted bout a week and a 1/2 before it was wide open and menacing. Imagine this little ol' lady pulling up to the church parking lot in a loud as* plymouth,or going for groceries, man that was cool....... oh sorry i was rambling........
