not to mention...reminds me of something you'd find on a civic...

but they can work if you really want them just have exhaust shop put them on, they'd know what to do.

there basically ricer looking glasspacks. Go down to your nearest auto parts store and get a pair of glass packs it will even sound better with the glass packs and then you could put some slash cut tips out the back and it will look alot better

hey it was just a suggestion and they do look like ricer mufflers. I really want some glasspack or some flowmaster mufflers but they cost and I am on a really tight budget. So what are the cheapest best muffler to buy.

Also does anybody have a sound clip of there tbird with just the resonator off. If so let me know

On these cars with a stock exhaust... Probably crappy but I dont know. my 77 Cougar sounded mean with them on there... but that's a Pushrod engine with 2.5inch true duals all the way back and no cats. I'll have a clip of my Tbird exhaust in October for sure. I hope it has the same kinda idle as the Maruader on HiTech's website

Ok do not put those on your car. If you do you're a moron. If you're saying "Hello to American Muscle" like I see in your sig then buy some thing that's going to make your V8 sound like a V8.

If you're looking at just mufflers and want to save some money check out these:

I know many people just cut off the mufflers and put straight pip in it's place. Supposedly it's loud, but not too loud.

On my tbird, I have http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku
It's fairly quiet, but it sings beautifully above 3000rpm. The great thing is that it has no drone on the highway.

I also have a 96 crown vic PI with true duals, glass packs, and no cats. That thing is loud and beautiful. It also drones like a demon on the highway, almost to the point of eliminating conversation.

I had a pair of those on my mountaineer and it sounded like a deep rumbly subaru does, but it was a V8. I liked it but it had a tone about it that if you drive on the freeway you will barely be able to hear yourself think. My mountaineer had 2.25" and I had them adapted by the muffler shop.

here is the muffler I plan to use. I got it from summitracing. 115 bux shipped. Dyno max 2.5 " DI/DO tru X flow series. I plan to just run this with 2 hi-flo cats. Will be unrestrictive and quiet enough.
