They are just as loud as any other glasspacks. So they are not quiet at all.

Cut the exhaust off and listen to how loud your car is then. I had a set on a 76 monte the exhaust was headman headers to purple hornies pointed at the ground. Thats it. All they did was gewt rid of that clapping noise the open headers made. I liked it. Never got sited either.

Actually, they're not loud at all... until you start your engine. Maybe if you had some really looong ones, like 30". Who's got a decibel meter?

Oh, according to member elcaminodragster's post they're this loud...

If you have to ask then they're TOO LOUD! If you plan on doing any sizable amount of driving on the streets I wouldn't get them. If its a drag car you like to take the the Friday cruise in then they may be the ticket.
