    I was thinking of doing the same thing... It'd be nice to hear the exhaust over the sound of humming tires for once /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    With those, that shouldn't be a problem....

    Heck, everyone should run those. It will eliminate a lot of the cell phone distracted drivers.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I am running regular cherry bomb glass packs on my k5. They are LOUD!!!!!!!! I am going to eventually take them off. I actualy like the humming sound of my tsl's now. Unless you like loud exhaust I don't recommened them on a daily driver. If I drove my k5 everyday I would of got rid of them already.

    I had a set on a 67 El Camino with a built 327. They were bolted to the headers with dumps. As ZP3R says "Loud! Very Loud."
    Might be the reason I cant hear anymore /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
