    Anyone here has +/- experiences with the 70 series? I'm in neeed of new mufflers for my BBC. I'm looking for something that will perform well, minimize noise and does not have any fiberglass as EVERY glass muffler I've had on previous vehicles has blown out.

    The Flowmaster 70 is a good choice but they are restrictive as far as aftermarket mufflers go.

    I would recommend a MagnaFlow muffler, they are straight through, so you have no restrictions. They do not use fiberglass, they use stainless steel mesh which will not blow out, plus they have a lifetime warranty so if anything about it breaks you get a new one for free /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Not to mention they are cheaper then the 70 series flowmaster.

    Here is a diagragm of the MagnaFlow..

    It depends on which muffler you get, if you get the 5" high x 11" wide and 22" long it will be relatively quiet.
