What we used to do back in the 60's was run the car untill the muffler is good and hot...then shut it off and run a water hose up the tail pipe......It will make some of the glass turn loose and will make it louder.

A way that works to make glasspacks louder

In my experience I have noticed it is hard to burn out cherrybomb glass packs, try a thrush glasspack. You can use cheap or even recycle old motor oil to do what i am going to say. Dump about half a quart in each. Then roll them in the front yard, this evenly distributes the oil in the packing. Wait an hour to let it soak in. Install with tail pipe exiting over the rear axle on trucks or mid body on cars 88 and before or at the end 88 and after. Heres what tho do next. Start vehicle and rev I mean REVVVVV! while at high RPM shut off engine this leaves raw fuel in cylinders. Start again after 30 seconds. REVVV! engine put vehicle in drive or overdrive and stomp gas pedal on the road. In less than 1 hr the vehicle takes on it's own sweet sound. and on 85 and older trucks do the same but with a twist; While on country road or hwy go 55 mph drop in neutral and shut engine off. If you have a carburetor on the vehicle this is impressive! pump the gass 7-8 times and star up again drop in gear and floor it. Fire ball meets oil. The glass pack is HOLLOWin 15 min of hard driving. pretty cool huh

Hmm, sounds like a really good way to blow something up or burn something down, like your car or the forest!

Q

I had a 31" thrush magnum on my '51 Chevy, 235 6cyl. it was a nice mellow tone, quiet inside, nothing too loud outside, but you knew it was running. I have since removed the exhaust system and have not replaced. Longer= Quieter, there not always loud

I know with turbo mufflers you can load em up with motor oil and take um down the road and the packing will blow out.
But don't get pulled over cause the "Excessive smoke" ticket has hefty fine.

glasspacks exhaust

My dad has a 57 belair 2 dr hardtop with SBC hooker headers on his 283 that go straight to glasspacks bolted to the collector. His cars been that way for 30 some years and its not horribly loud, it has that same open header sound and rap when you let off but its like someone took a tv remote and turned down the volume.

I'm pretty sure that after 6 years he has found a set of mufflers.

Glass packs

I got popped for running straight pipes on my small block powered '62 Chevy half ton once,and the cop told me,"I'm gonna pull you over again in a couple of days,and if you don't have mufflers on that thing,I'm pulling the plates off it." So I got a set of glass packs for 2-1/8" pipes,cut my 2" pipes to slide clear through 'em,clamped the front ends and made the joints on the pipes right under the rear clamps,just an eighth of an inch or so in from the ends. Hey-he never said they had to be functional....

I dont like loud anymore, have 12 inch glass packs on my trans am, exits in front of the rear end. Its LOUD. Doesnt pop or rattle like glasspacks usually do though, just smooooth. Looking into cherry bomb's chambered muffler, or into magnaflows next...need it to quiet down, has too nice of a stereo in it for the engine to drown it out!

Glass packs

My '76 big block duallie has Magna Flows,and I REALLY like the sound of 'em. Strong sounding but not overly loud under a hard pull. (Makes me drive with the window down even on cold days. ) I AM going to a louder exhaust on my '45 Mack though,(not Diesel,354 gas six) I ran it with no muffler and a 4 inch stack driving it home from Reno,and around here for a while,but my conscience got to me,waking people up when driving home late at night,so I put the stock under-cab muffler back on. Now I can't hear it at anything over 30 mph,and under that I can still hear the valves working. I think a 4" in-4" out glass pack about 2 feet long will do the trick. (Still working on how to set up a flame thrower in the stack and hide the wiring and such. )
