Has anyone here ever put a glasspack behind a big six M30 engine? I have a set of them on my truck behind a pair of headers. 351ci = 5.77L divided by 2(dual exhaust)=2.88L flowing through each. More than likely capable of more flow. Without the muffler, the cat alone brings the M30 sound down to a loud low pitch drone. I like the note and tone of the sound but need to cut out decibels. The stock muffler (before it rusted out) was too high pitched brappy raspberry sounding - made it sound tinny like a British or Rice Burner car! Ach Du Liber Gut Himmel! NO YO BOY PIPES !!! <br>

I would not recommend it for street use as it is much louder than the stock system.<p>Also my British cars have a nice deep distinctive exhaust note. Nothing like a rice burner.<p>WH

I'm using a glasspak as a resonator, sounds cool. But I have a sort of unique system -- '89 3.5 engine, including exhaust manifolds and dual cats, then a 2-in/1-out Borla muffler right behind the cats, and the glasspak under the trunk. Started without that glasspak and it was way too loud (even for me) ;-)
