I've got the Flowmaster Hushpower II's on my hot rod, nice throaty rumble, they cost about $110-$130 each but they are stainless. The glass packs are cheaply made, that's why they cost so little and are LOUD!!!! and get louder as they get older. You can find the Hushpowers on ebay also for a price comparison.

Magnaflows for good low pitched grunt. Flowmasters for tinny pingpong ball in a coffee can sound.

That's what that Flowmaster is used for. Single in, dual out. Should sound "OK" but a true dual exhaust would sound better. JMHO
There are mufflers on ebay now that have the same sound as Flowmasters for almost 1/3rd the cost. I bought a PAIR for $56.00 and they sound great. They are made out of 16 ga. material. I have heard that Flowmaster's patent on the sound has expired now and there are more companies duplicating the sound for less cost. No monopoly now. Not sure how true that is but it's what I heard.

Take a look at Spin Tech. The fellow I am helping with his 69 Camaro just bought a complete system from them and it is first rate all around.

The Dynomax Super Turbo... I use the 17749...

I just went through a bunch of different exhaust systems with and without the H-pipe.. I ended up yanking the H-pipe because of too much drone and installing my old set of Dynomax Hemi Turbos...

I find that turn downs sound best.. Pencil tips enhance the mid and high tones..

A guy in town that's done some work for me has marketed these mufflers, my neighbor has them on his 40 Ford and now I wish I had them too.

Good sounding, they have a video you can hear.

I love mine. I bought Spintech Super Prostreet mufflers 3" in 3" out. True dual exhaust out the back. Click on the pictures.

I used to have a single Mufflex 4" Flowmaster 30 series. I liked it but it was very raspy. Everyone seems to have Flowmasters anyway.
