Problem with glass packs is they work with flow. The more flow you push through them the louder they get. As with just about any muffler I suppose. A glasspack on a V6 could work fine but the sound will be off. When it is really floored you might like the sound but lightly acc. it is going to have a slight drone sound. Heck for $20 a glasspack you could always give it a try.

IT'S going to sound like a v8 missing two cylinders.

it's still going to have that hi-rev v6 sound, can't get away from that.
and it's got to sound better than a stock muffler, i say do it.

Have you noticed......

no one else has posted saying they are running one and how it sounds? I can only think it would NOT sound right but it is an inexpensive thing to try...if you don't like the noise/sound pull it/them off.

I had one on a straight six. Actually had one each on two different I-6 cars, and they both sounded like crap. Sounded like a 4-cyl. with fart pipe but at a higher frequency. I had two on a hot-rodded six with 3-into-1 headers. It also sounded like crap, but not as bad as the other two, and was quite a bit louder, as well as way more powerful.

If you try one, don't weld it on until you're sure you want to keep it. I'd go with a single big turbo-type muffler or a small one on each side with some means of combining the exhaust pulses from both sides before they get to the mufflers (X-pipe, or a single large pipe followed by a Y & 2 mufflers.

tornado

Has anyone tried this "tornado" air intake? I have read that it's supposed to give at least 35 more horsepower. It's a funny round thing that you stick inside your intake that supposedly spins the air and magically makes power. Anyone try one of these?

I wouldn't bother with something that abstructs my incoming air charge. That idea is also the same idea as an intake manifold gasket with a screen in it to keep the charge fully mixed for "Maximum Performance".

I put one one my 2002 chevy Silverado truck. It has a 5.3 litre 325 CI, 700r4,4.10 gears, aftermarket intake, etc. I didn't really feel any difference.
It basicly was a waste of money. Needlees to say I took it out and sold it.

I'd say buy it if it has a money back gurantee and report the results.

if they have the money back gurantee, i'd say buy it and run it for a week and see what happens. If it doesn't take it back to Ricer Parts Depot with reciept and get your money back.
