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.
