OddRodder Not to start a argument, most straight-through design mufflers will outflow the turbo-type which should give the straight-through design a performance edge! Although they didn't flow test "purple hornies" this link has some interesting information on the subject!

Knobie Like I said, they are loud. As far as performance is concerned, there are better mufflers around!

Jared im running them on my 79 camaro just like you have yours and they are loud as heck and i like it. they have a great tone to them. They will get attention so watch your foot around the cops. they glare at me alot but have yet to pull me over for them. One sheriff said my car sounded nice when i got pulled for speeding. If you like loud you will like them.

OddRodder It's all personal preference, glasspacks are usually a little louder than turbo-style mufflers. I had a set on my pickup, I liked them, they are cheap, and they last along time before rusting out!

Knobie I had a set on my 55 and found them too loud! I replaced them with a set of dynomax mufflers and found the the car performed better. I would not recommend them.

Meka I dont have purple hornies on my car but I do have glasspacks. Mine are true duals straight from the exhaust manifold and they sound pretty nice. They are not annoyingly loud and you dont hear them to much inside unless you step on the gas then you can hear them pretty good. If you want a sound clip of mine just send me a pm.
