I thought those were for jeeps? I am sure you can use them though. I saw that Cherry Bomb is making a similar header muffler now. I am not sure what the purple hornies sound like but I am sure they are loud.

OOOOOHHHH dang! Louder than crap. Buddy of mine put'em on an 85 chevy pickup you couldn't hear yourself think. I would say they are a bad choice.

Dude, the long Cherry Bombs are it. I'm going to get some just because. Check 'em out first. Usually when I'm thinking, I hear myself, just not as much as others do.

I had some on my nova when i first did the swap on my car. They got annoying real fast. when i switched to the super 40's and an x pipe there was a noticeable difference in power and i could finally hear my radio.

Yep they rattle the bottom of the vehicle directly over them and blow up dust big time.

If you're after performance with a glass pack look for the design without louvers. Thrush makes a good one that doesn't have the internal louvers like Cherry Bomb and others. Thrush has a perforated core and is consistant in diameter from front to back for the best flow. The louvers restrict flow. Flowmaster's don't flow anywhere close to a good glass pack.

thanks for the info guys...my only question is, with the floorpan on the secondgeneration camaros like mine, will the long cherrybombs fit? because i plan to run pipes either out in front of the rear wheels or out the back in stock location and i know that true duals have to be ran very carefully so they dont scrape when going over speedbumps and such.

on my sons 74 Camaro we just put a 400SBC in, we came off the headers with 3" pipe and stuck a race muffler on towards the end and run it back next to the rearend center and turned it to the side and down. its loud and sounds good.




not great pics, but gives you an idea
