    None...go with a straight through muffler like a dynomax ultraflow, borla xr-1, DNA mufflers, etc...sound way better and actually help horsepower instead of restrict it

      Just remember, longer ones will be quieter. Shorter ones louder. The real short ones get old after a while but they sound good.

        Glass packs will actually cost you HP . Besides , anyone that know motors will know your car is just loud not finely tuned .

        Thrush glasspacks run from $19.99- $25.99 depending on overall length. Use a Dynomax turbo or a Thrush welded, better sound, better power.

        Glass paks are straight through mufflers, the only difference between the traditional glass pak and the mufflers mentioned is the size of the case which provides for more packing and a quieter longer lasting muffler.

        There are some real cheap glass paks that have a smaller iternal tube than the connectors that you would want to avoid but it you like the sound and don't mind that they get louder with age go for it.

            Not quite glasspacks but BETTER... less of the "popping" machine-gun-like sound and more similar to flowmaster-type mufflers but still a very unique sound. I have the longest 2.5" ones on my Duster and they sounded great with the tired 318 before, should be almost tank-like when the 360 Magnum goes in LOL. Not to mention they are HANDMADE (and still ~$70 a muffler!) and the guy who makes them knows his stuff...

            has to do with the resonance of the exhaust pulses .
            go online and do some research . Exhaust designers will tell you the same thing .

            I know it sounds counter-intuitive .......

            I love the sound of glasspacks for old school and when I told the muffler shop to put them on my 66 they called them redneck speakers. lol I still got them and the 4 speed makes them nice.

            I don't know now, but JC Whitney used to sell the 12" "racing" glaspacks............

            They sound great, and a 12" glasspack doesn't resonate back at the motor like the longer ones.....

            I love the sound the a new glass pack.
