Glasspacks no four bangers?

I got a glass pack on my oldsmobile today that has a 307 v8. It has a pretty nice sound on it but i was wondering would a glasspack sound very good on a 4 banger?

Did i mention any thing about power? No? didnt think so. Any ways their cheap and i can by them about 2 miles from where i live. My glass pack isnt that "loud". I just wanted somthing that sounded better than stock.

Oh and by the way whats your thing with trying to be a ***** to people who are just asking simple questions?

Chill out meka, that's just the way he is. He's just jokin around. ANyway, don't take this personally, but I hate it when people put packs on 4 poppers. I've sounded cooler on a toilet.

I got the Glass PaK on.......it is cheap. BUT it sounds mean as hell ..I like it. The problem is they only last 1000 miles or so.

One day I`ll put a Borla on.........but the engine and suspension must get done 1st!

"I've sounded cooler on a toilet" lamo...the only thing that is worse that 4 bangers with glass packs is all the 88-94 chevy trucks in this town. There "pipes" is what they call it SOUND LIKE CRAP!!!And the thing that really makes me mad about it is that they think its so cool to have a poppy piece of junk.

I thought glasspacks on 4-bangers were strictly for kids and gang members. Careful you might get carjacked if it sounds TOO much like an plug-in air-popper. Kid down the street has an extra set he just pulled off his chevette if your interested.............
