Question Quietest exhaust system for an '95 LT1...in an old Volvo...

Unusual question, I know. I didn't know what forum to post in.

I have an '89 Volvo 745 with an LT1 pulled from a '95 Z28. The exhaust that's on there is way too loud.

What is the quietest exhaust I can put on this machine? It currently has catalytic converters, but I don't need them, so there is room for pre-mufflers if it helps. Just a pair of stock cans or is there something that will muffle better without choking the motor?

Can I just put on any muffler that fits the pipe diameter, or is there a good reason to stick with one designed for an LT1? I've read about people slapping together any series of tubes and baffles, and I've read about people fine-tuning with cross-flow exhaust setups and air/fuel sensors. I don't know what to do when.

I'm not chasing horsepower, I just want a quiet car. I'd rather not lose 50 horse, of course...Some custom work will be necessary (which is fine), I'm just out of my element here.

Dynomax Super Turbos are the quietest performance muffler.

The longer the muffler the quieter it will be. They start at 14" long and go up to 22".

Those Super Turbos look interesting. I never realized how easy it could be to pick up a custom can. They sell one that's nearly three feet!

I guess I should just ask if there's anything quieter than a stock exhaust in good shape? Maybe something in a stainless steel...Time to start measuring.

Power is less of a concern, because the rear end that's currently on the car is rated for about half the torque it is now receiving...
