Best sounding muffler

anyone know what the best muffler would be for hearing that rough, lumpy idle. ive got a big cam, just curious on what was the best sounding muffler. ive heard of super 40 and cherry bombs, but obviously you dont get to hear them before you buy. disturbing the peace is a must for classic muscle

Re: Best sounding muffler

I've always loved Flowmasters. 2 chamber Flows is whats on my car and they are quite loud. Cherry bombs sound like crap to me.

DECEIVER!! You doubt ME? EAT, MY, WRATH!!

I will pull down the gates of Abaddon.
I will let the dead roam free.
They will eat the living.
AGONY!

Re: Best sounding muffler

I took my muffler exhaust guys advice and put Magnaflows on my 67 and I'm in not sorry.Great sound at idle,deep and kind of "throaty" I guess for lack of a better word and really good sound under power but in no way deafening inside the car....a cross over pipe will take away from your lopey big cam a little because it blends the sound of both banks with some overlap,just something to think about. I didnt realize this untill my car was done

Re: Best sounding muffler

The best sounding muffler was the Hush Thush mufflers from the 70's. They were tube mufflers like a cherry bomb, but had flat ends not tapered ends. Nicknamed them beer can mufflers. They had a picture of a woodpeckers head on them.

Shame they stopped making them, they cost arond 20.00 for a 16' long set of header mufflers back in the day, and now if your lucky enough to catch them on ebay they are around 200 for a pair of NOS.

Re: Best sounding muffler

Best sounding is a matter of opinion. I think the best sounding (deep and rich) is the Hooker Aerochambers. They are very well built and reasonably priced. Not everyone knows about them or has them, people used to ask me about them all the time. I have Borlas now and they sound great too but, they cost almost 3 times what the Hookers cost.

Re: Best sounding muffler

I've got some cheapo $20 Dynomax Thrush Turbo mufflers. My 350 has a good bit of chop to it and sounds great through the mufflers. Sounds different than flowmaster's though... those have a pretty distinct sound.

Re: Best sounding muffler

I really dont like the flowmasters they sound like a drone to me when accelerating . I really like the violators the sound is, unique. I agree with the ones with the woodpecker icons on them, my old shop teacher told me about them once or twice.

Re: Best sounding muffler

Flowmaster super 40's or the original 40's.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned spin tech, unless I missed a post?
If I had to do it again I would go with spin tech.
Glass packs belong on some thing else. imho... An "800hp" bone stock truck if you catch my drift...

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.
