    Default How do you get your glasspacks to be louder!

    I Just Put Glasspacks on my 68 and they are not loud enough.
    It's bad enough that they dont look even under the car? but they are quiet as fuck..

    what is the deal? will they be louder if the pipe is more narrow? or will that give them a higher pitch?

    I was told that the shorter glasspack's are louder, so I got some short one's on my 68 and they are not as loud as what

    I have on my 76!

    Is it true that if you put them on backward's they will be louder?

    I used to hear a rumor that if you spray water inside them it does something to make them louder?

    when I was a kid they used to call glasspacks (RAPPER'S) because of the loud rapping noise they would make when you accelerate or downshift..

    theyll get louder when the glass fibers melt. any exhaust is the quietest when its just put on. If you do more narrow or more wide than the rest of the pipe itll sound like an import

    The Motor is 400 sb with a 4 barrel, I use to have a 307 with single exhaust. I put the 400 in first, then went to a muffler

    shop and payed the guy to run dual's strait back on each side. Im a dumb ass for excepting the work.. they dont look uniform at all

    when your up under the car. my guess is they are about 18 inch's long.. my 76 caprice has a 400 sb with a 2 barrel and duals that

    are around 22 inch's long.. and sound tight, crisp and loud! once the mufflers are used will they still work if I turn them around?

    You gotta wait until they are warm then spray water in them and fire your engine and it blows the packing loose. Or u could just let them get louder on their own

    Just get those mother's hot and park in a incline (drive way) stick a water hose in the pipe get a bit of water to flow threw your glass pack to break up the fiber glass. May take a couple of times but will sound good. Did it in my 70 impala.
