August 6, 2003first i wanted to say the people on this site are cool as **** and i found out today that my truck had a 305 in it but it was blow up and they put 350 in it thanks to buddie of mine who`s a mechanic he found the ser num and ran it for me well thing is i have a 18 inch glass pack on my truck and i want it to sound louder some people told me just bust the glass pack but i really dunno how do it they say spray water in it but i`m not sure about that or would it be easyer for me to get straights anybody think turndowns are louder than straights if so please tell me thanks!
August 6, 20031. take the glasspack off the truck
2. hold the glasspack with both hands
3. with both hands still on the glasspack, walk to the nearest trash recepticle
4. let go of the glasspack while holding it over the trash recepticle
Dude, you don`t wanna do that. I had a 77 Chevy with dual exhaust and 12" glasspacks. Nice and loud *bested only by a 71/72 Chevy with a mild 350, headers and dual 3" straight pipes at my school* but it sounded worse than sh1t. There are no words to describe how bad it sounded....Chevys and glasspacks do not mix. Very bad combination. If you want loud, look into the old style chambered mufflers www.classicchambered.com or get some Magnapacks. Magnapacks are the only glasspacks I will ever endorse. They`re the only ones I`ve ever heard that actually have sound to them.
August 6, 2003be sure to let the glasspack cool off before you touch it! then proceed to step one!
August 7, 2003Nothing wrong with packs on a chevy in my opinion. I know 4+ people with glasspacks on V8 chevys and they sound great!
August 7, 2003sorry dave but i would have to side with nasty on this one. although it was only one truck that i heard it still sounded great to me. It was an 82 chevy 305 with straight pipes and 2 12in. glasspacks. Now there were no tips on it just went out both sides in 2 1/4in. pipe. Personally i like a deap rummble not to much crack. This truck would take off with a nice rummble and never pop and crack i don`t know what typr of glass packs they were since i wasn`t to into detail about trucks at that time. but this truck sounded great not loud but nice and throaty. but that was only one truck so i`m sure i can be different
