For what it's worth-
I know this isn't a flowmaster, but I recall the glasspacks we're always pretty darn loud. Supreme Performance is still selling the infamous 'Cherry Bomb'

If you want loud and still sounds good, then forget the flows and go with the new cherry bomb extremes. They are LOUD but have a great sound to them.

The old two chambers were loud. Their one chamber race "mufflers" are very loud. What does he have for an engine? A relatively stock engine will sound a weaker than one that's been modified. Example: A friend has a 71 Chevy with a 350, 1 5/8 Hooker headers, dual 2 1/2" pipes and a pair of Flowmaster Super 40s. It sounds good but it's much quieter than my 72 Blazer that also has a 350, the same headers, same size pipes and the same mufflers. My pipes run straight out the back and his behind the rear tires, other than that the two exhausts are nearly identical and mine is far louder than his. The biggest difference? Mine makes twice the horsepower his does.

super 40's

I have a 67 camaro with a 383 and equipped with flowmasters super 40's. These mufflers sound great, a nice rumble when idling and they scream "raspy' when you stand on it. Also another bad sounding exhaust are the SLP Loudmouth exhaust.

The Original 40's are the loudest. I love how they sound on my built sb 408, 2 and 1/2, H-pipe set-up.

1. get some good computer speakers
2. make sure the neighbors aren't around
3. crank the volume
4. click here and take a look around
5. post updates

edit: they're alot louder than flowmasters, straight-through mufflers are always louder than chambered or 'turbo' style mufflers

Neighbor kid across the street used to have a chevy 4x4 with headers and single chamber flows. He'd leave for work every morning at 5am. Would fire it up and let it "warm up" for about 10 minutes. It was aimed right at our bedroom window. Needless to say, my temper finally ran out and we had words real early one morning. Not long after that he changed the mufflers, then luckly, moved!

I guess with age comes wisdom. If you want to agravate the world and let the cops know you're coming from 5 block away, go for the loud ones.
If you want to hear your engine and still keep a low profile, be a little more conservative on the muffler selection.

You do not want to go for a long drive with these mufflers.
I will be adding some resonant tips this summer.

Loudest Flowmaster

I believe it's the 40 series single chamber.
