How about headers into 3" pipes out to 5" megaphones under the rear bumper with no mufflers. That should do the job and also **** off everyone within a 5 mile radius of your house. If that's not loud enough you can always buy a tape of drag racing and play it over giant stadium speakers mounted to the trunk lid.

If loud is what you want, what do you need an exhaust for? I'd run open headers.......
Maybe some of those good exhaust fumes will creep up into the car, and you can get a free buzz out of it also! KZ

How loud the system will be depends on how your engine is set up. A 600 HP BB will be a lot louder than a 180HP 307. I've got a Rick's Chambered system on my 67 RS Conv with 327, vortec heads, 268H cam, performer intake and carb, with stock manifolds. It sounds great when you start it and mean rumble at idle. But at WOT it's so loud, I get dirty looks from Harley Davidson riders!

2 meaningful replies out of 4 from Tech Team Members ain't a good average. If you're tired of answering these questions, as some have indicated in the past, just don't reply.Thanx Torch and MarkM.

Hey, I'm just tryin' to have a little fun, no harm intended, I'm sure Rocky Mountain Racer feels the same way. Some of the questions are so goofy though, it's hard to resist.
You know, like, "What color should I paint my car?" I saw that one again yesterday, and held back. I'll try to contain myself, especially now that we're being charged by the # of hits! Sorry......KZ

Lighten up Crash - I was just poking a little fun! And in case you are not paying attention - there are a few questions asked in jest - such as the one regarding locking keys in the convertible - and plenty of smart answers tossed around. Hopefully, no one is banning good natured ribbing and jokes among us gearheads.

Yep, you're right to a point. I've seen one board go down the dumper and I wouldn't want the same to happen here.That one started when the long term members lost patience with newbie questions. Peace.

"loud" is a relative term. What is loud to you, might be mild to someone else.
Find an exhaust you like on a car at a show or a friends car and go with the same......

Re: the silly suggestion of megaphones:

Years ago when I was about 20 - like you CamaroKid - I had a Mercury Capri. It was lowered, flared, painted Ferrari red and set up for slalom racing. I built the heck out of the motor and put headers, dual exhaust with glasspacks and long megaphones out under the bumper! The exhaust sound was incredible - kinda like a race motorcycle at full throttle!

My neighbors hated me, I loved it and the cops hunted me down and wrote tickets like crazy. So, my wiseass answer was partly in jest and partly based on my own experiences - I just left out the history lesson.

So... how about a serious answer to an apparently serious question: the FlowMaster 2 chamber answer is good. You can also try MagnaFlow Mufflers - I happen to have those on my car now. They're louder than I wanted and have a mellow tone (Somewhat like the old Capri). I will most likely pull these off one of these days in leiu of something quieter. You can also literally run without mufflers but slip some small resonators in to take off the edge. Good luck.
