    how would they sound on my car? I have stock mufflers right now and I'm looking for something a little bit deeper and slightly louder

    the best glass packs like cherry bomb or purple hornies have a perforated core as this will not restrict the flow

    purple hornies are a louvered core = flow restriction. Technically they are a spiral louvered core. You can orient these louvers backwards to restrict less but you still have all the pointy things sticking in the flow path.

    There is a thread in the high pro section with a short video of my car running. It has cherry bombs and x pipe.

    thrush glasspacks have perforated holes also, no louvers to reduce flow

    I always liked the Thrush packs. I think the farther back in the system the better they sound. I have them on my '72 SB Vette and see no reason to change. Not too loud, sounds good.

    LOL I've got a pair of cherry bombs that were on one of my parts cars. I'm going to use them as clamp on mufflers when I have an engine on the test stand. Cherry bombs are lound!

    Back in the 70's, all the guys that had Jeeps with 304's ran purple hornies. I still remember the sound. Now, I can't imagine that sound coming from a Camaro.

    Cherry bombs will sound horrible in a short time, making that ghey glasspack rap and popping noise upon deceleration, and just loud and obnoxious when accelerating.
    Acceleration will be hampered with a glasspack muffler as they are quite restrictive to airflow.
    A real performance muffler would be a "turbo" muffler.
