    Physics 101:

    Looking at a new muffler and want to know if there is any relation between length and loudness. These are identicle 3"-in and 3"-out mufflers. Would a shorter muffler be louder since there is less of it to do the job.

    This is for a Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler - looking at these two:

    289-17744:
    In/Out: 3''
    Body Length: 14''
    Muffler Size: 4-1/2'' x 9-3/4''

    289-17793:
    In/Out:
    3''
    Body Length: 16''
    Muffler Size: 5-1/2'' x 11''

    Thanks :D

    Depends if it is a straight through design, or if the exhaust goes around a few bends or not.

    I've got a short little Flo Pro on my truck, and that thing has some serious rap to it when you get on the loud pedal. Sounds like a nascar at 5000 rpm, lol

    All other factors being equal, with two mufflers of the same design the longer one will be quieter.

    I find that it isn't so much the lenght as much as it is how hard you ride it.

    My truck is actually straight piped... I'm looking for a stock muffler from a newer truck to take out all the noise, which I'm sick of. I want my truck to be able to be stealthy. Will I loose all that much horsepower with a stock style muffler? The straight pipes were cool, but now they're old.. So yeah, I guess I kinda want a MUFFler :p:
    thanks,
    James
