I have had a good experience with glasspacks.

I will admit, if you are gonna be doing high rpm cruising, it can get a bit annoying unless you have some music on.

it sounds soooo mean though.

and as far as which kind...they were just some from the muffler shop where I had the work done.

I could possibly figure out what brand.

yup, i liked the way my cutlass sounded with the 24" glasspacks midmounted and then getting 45* side exits behind the rear tires dumping into some chrome 3" slashed tips, that thing sounded sweet when i had the stock 307, good idle, low rumble, man i miss that sound, lol, but once i went with the 350 it sounded real sic, a night and day difference. but all in all, i love the way 'packs sound.

2.25 true duals, 12in glasspacks, angle cut tips. nothing special really.

haha, even try removing the resonator and putting glasspacks inplace of the mufflers. we did that at first to see what it sounded like and it was pretty mean also.

SO even if I just removed the mufflers and resonator ir should sound mean? I was kind of like the idea that 94thunderchicken had but im afraid that might cause alot of drone.

I say just remove the mufflers and resonator and put glasspacks in their place. If you can do it yourself, you can try different combinations to get the sound YOU want.

all i did to my 4.6 was cut both the mufflers off, put the same diameter pipe as the stock pipe and put chrome tips that turn down like the stock ones do, i was surprised how it sounded for only taking the mufflers off

I did the same as ^^^^^ on my 95. Just cut the mufflers and put some turn downs on doesnt sound bad at all and very cheap. Now This time on the 94 I am going to go true dual with highflows and either straight or some 12 inch glasspacks, maybe its just me but I love the sound of packs.

i had straigt pipe on my car back to my new 3 inch chrome tip i had. it was loud as hell and pretty mean sounding. (for the 3.8) so i was like ahh ill put a glass pack on there and see what it does. and now i want to take it back of soooo bad cuz i hate it. it cut the volume in half at least, it didnt make it sound any deeper. and now it just sounds too close to what my ricer muffler sounded like and thats what i wanted to get rid of. so personaly ill be removing my glasspacks and talking with some people that know how to make a v6 not sound like a v6.

just my opinion though

are you going to do this yourself or have someone else do it? the stock pipes on mine was 2" pipe from the manifold to the 3rd cat and resonator, after that single 2 1/2". to the axle then split into dual 1 7/8". if you want to go the same route i did and dont care about anything after the axle i would suggest a thrush or purple hornie glasspacks cuz they dont have that tin can pop effect sound to them unlike cherry bomb or the jc whitney cheapies. even the thrush's on a big block sound like a hollowed out turbo muffler. its all up to what you want and your local noise ordinances. only reason i did mine the way i did was to get rid of the 3rd cat incase i wanted a true dual setup at an exhaust shop, plus i already had the glasspacks from the back of the car, and the lower throttle response is much better than the y-pipe imo.
