    I have a 454 w/ Headman headers and turbo mufflers. It is too loud for my liking. The headers got a little mangled and I need to replace them. I have been thinking about going back to the orginal exhaust manifolds. My question is will this quiet it down??? All opinions welcome!

    They probably will, but it will reduce performance. If I were you, I would get some of the quieter Flowmasters like the 50 or 70 series, they should quiet it down a little.

    what u should do is slap a set of glass packs on her and then driver her on the highway up into the mountains and cross a cold mountain stream and make sure that u submerg ur glass packs in it too.

    Well as it gose it gose and under it rolls heavey rubber bouncing on a head.

    The best way to take care of the noise problem would be to trade that 454 of yours for my 350 [​IMG].

    get yourself some Doug Thorey Tri Y headers, adapt that to your exhaust system, then between the headers and the mufflers put in a pair of catalysts.
    THis sould get your 454 quieted down.
