Mufflers and Glasspacks combo

Before I go building or buying different mufflers etc, I figured someone else has come across this.
Blown SBC, full length headers, dual 3" tubes into Flowmasters (dual chamber) with full tails. It's way to loud. Has anyone run resonators/glass packs with mufflers. What other setups have you run? I can handle the noise; however, I don't want the attention....the blower makes enough music.

Get a better muffler tnan the "Flowchokers", like MagnaFlow or Borla. The Flows' aren't helping you in the sound, or power departments..

I hope Flowmaster pays their marketing department well, they have done a good job "baffling with Bull ****" the performance market .

If you don't mind losing some HP/torque, you could choke it down and install stock replacements. It'll'll probably have to make some adjustments on the engine...but it'll work.

Something like Dynomax SuperTurbos and a good H or X pipe would help a lot. You could add a resonator, but I don't think you will need it.

Many folks pick the dual chamber Flowmasters because of the name, but they are not good for noise control.
