I have Hooker headers into dual 2.5 pipes down to an H pipe and then through 30 Flowmaster ser. and on out. I think there is many great sounding systems out there I choose the 30's because of their classic muscle car sound. Not extremely loud but you can hear the RPM's and it rips when you stomp on it. :drool: lol.
You forgot Hooker. Their Aero Chamber mufflers flow more than Flowmaster. They have a bassier sound, without all of the raspy sound of Flows. They get loud at the higher RPMs, and stay relatively quiet at cruise. The idle is a little loud at the resonating point, (900-1,100 RPMs).
Hooker Aerochambers is what i run some of the best sounding mufflers ive ever heard. REALLY low tone at idle thats the only complaint sounds like a 12 inch sub goingn off at a stop light. But besides that like ont he hgihway theyre so quiet right until you punch it then they get down right nasty:evil: imp: although im temted to throw some cutouts on there just to make sure EVERY car alarm goes off not just everyother one like they do now:evil:
2.5" front to back block hugger headers into header tubes and "Purple Hornies" glasspacks....I like it LOUD! Buddy always says..."see you there".....I always respond..."You'll hear me looooong before you see me"
Dynomax headers, mufflers and a Summit 3" X-pipe. I bought the cheap stuff and it sounded great until I blew up the mufflers. That's no biggie, $40 for a new set and I'm good for a few more years or the next backfire.
I was running Hooker Aerochambers, I really liked them a lot. Once I put the blown engine in the Hookers were way too loud (for the street). I made the change to Borlas and I like them with the blown engine.
Naturally aspirated I really liked the Hookers. So I guess it depends on the engine. Price wise the Hookers are MUCH cheaper and have a very good sound. Borlas are expensive but have a nice sound as well.
Who makes the loudest most free flowing street muffler? I have heard Borla, Dynomax Bullets, Flowmaster 40s are all loud but i want the loudest most free flowing muffler for 2.5 inch pipe on a mild pretty mild 305.
Noise does not equal performance (I am sure you already knew that). How loud a muffler will be on a car has a lot to do with how much air that engine is moving. A muffler that is loud on a 750HP big block is not going to sound the same on your 275HP 305.
If you want a loud free flowing muffler I would have to say, see if you can find the old 2 chamber Flowmasters. They are loud but, I don't care for the sound. The older ones had a better sound.
Borlas actually are not that loud. Their claim to fame is "Less noise without losing horsepower" When I say they aren't that loud I mean compared to some other mufflers. My Borlas are plenty loud but, that has a lot to do with the engine.
