Glass-pack mufflers

11 posts in this topic

Dual-piped my truck this past summer.. The guy who did the job for me put a glass-pack muffler in so it wasn't extremely loud.

It's fairly loud now, but I'm feeling I could use a little more juice. I've heard some stories where guys have turned their glass-packs inside out, and it's even louder than straight pipes?

Maybe I'll just take it out and straight pipe it?

Any good reccomendations?

I have never heard of turning glass packs inside out, but I have heard of wetting them out. When the muffler is hot (eng. not running), spraying a garden hose in to mat down the glass and make it sound different and most times louder. Sometime much louder wink. This depends on how much water you spray in their. I would start out with a short spray/mist at first and then go from their.

The only thing is once you do this, you can not go back. If you do not like the results, you will have to replace the muffler.

I also remember guys using a torch or gas and burning them out also. A glass pack will burn it’s self out eventually, causing a different tone/sound threw out its life. Some times when I would switch out my mufflers/glass packs for some reason, I would be disappointed at first about the sounds. It always seemed the best sounding glass packs where the ones that have been around a while.

Also if you go with cherry bomb syle GP and you want the loudest sound, go with the shorter glass packs. If you want the deepest hotrod tone, go with the longer style wink.

More noise won't give you anymore power. Just more noise. Glass pack mufflers are nothing more than a tube full full of holes going through a larger solid tube. Between the two is some fiberglass packing to help absorb some noise. Eventually the packing burns out and they get louder. Can't see how they could be turned inside out ???

Keep about $142 around. That's the cost of the ticket for loud exhaust.

Reminds me of my High School days.

The year was 1977. I had a 1965 LeManns, Candy Apple Blue, jacked up with 50s on the back and 60s on the fount.

Duluth Central High perched on top the hill.

The downhill drive went right past the outdoor smoking area looking over Lake Superior.

Thats were the BAs hung out.

Get it up to 40 in second then let off and let it rap to the bottom of the hill. It couldn't have been a more perfect show.

The whole town is on a hill for that matter, I must have been a real PITA.

What more out of it, when the exhaust manifolds crack replace with headers.

COOL = Quiet

I hate loud vehicles. Especially when my neighbor fires up his truck at 6am every morning and lets it warm up until 6:30 and all I hear is the dang pipes. Then he comes home from the bars or wherever at 1am.

Keep it the way it is. Your neighbors will appreciate it.

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
