    Alright. Simple question here. I had 3 chamber Flowmasters on a previous vehicle and now I'm running good old dirty glasspacks on my Blazer. I enjoyed both setups, but the Flowmasters were a little too quiet and the 'packs are a little obnoxious sometimes. What do you think would be a good "in between" muffler? Loud, but not insanely loud.

    I have the 2 chamber Flowmasters and love them. They are just the right loudness for me. They do get a little annoying after running 4000 rpm for 3 hours between gas stops on the highway though.

    I have glasspacks on my show rig and love the the POP back they give and the growl they have when you are really getting into it. But on ly Blazer I have 2 chamber flows and love them. They have a deep bassy authorative sound, yet when I let off the gass they quiet down. im also FORCED to run 454 sized cats

    speaking of mufflers has anyone used the thrush turbo tubes? I like the volume of the glasspacks and was wondering what these turbo tubes do.
