    Depends on what you want. I found glass packs fun for about 20 minutes, than just annoying later on. For a race car, by all means, but if you drive for more than 30 minutes on a regular basis, it can become annoying. I went with the stock transverse muffler system from dynomax. Good rumble during acceleration, smooth and manageable sound during cruise, and it fits up nice and tight.

    Have those on our nova. Same exact muffler as flowmaster 40 series. It is a copy of it. They are fairly loud but not to bad with an X pipe. It sounds like he doesn't want super loud anymore so I would suggest Dynomax Ultra flo mufflers. Very free flowing but not super loud. Even better would be Borla XR1 sportsman or there quieter pro xs mufflers. I run the XR1's with an x pipe and my car is pretty quiet.



    Camera makes it sound louder than they really are.

    I recently installed a Pypes bolt in system. 2 1/2 in x pipe with the single cross flow muffler. Had to use the system as it looked like the factory system that was in the car. It Idles very quiet sounds good but when you stomp on it wow it roars sounds great. I was skeptical, but very happy. It is stainless kit bought from summit.

    I was looking at pypes because of the price for a stainless kit compared to flowmaster. did you get the street or violator mufflers? I want a kit that exits like stock. with the pypes I have to purchase a hockeystick extension to look like stock. with flowmaster it appears to be included.
    I've had flowmaster,magnaflow and dynomax on different vehicles. I like the sound of flowmaster, nice at idle but drones at 2000 rpm but I won't be driving this car much so that doesn't matter. the magnaflow are quiet at idle but howl when you punch it and are supposed to flow better. the dynomax were cheap aluminized junk that rusted out in 2 years (after warranty expired) and didn't sound good at all.
