Does the inlet and outlet of a muffler change the way it works or offer any torque gains?
Ya know
center in center out
or
offset in center out
or
offset in offset out

Wich one is used to build torque, if any?
Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

Steve, as I understand it the configuration of the inlet and outlet is only for routing...

It all depends on what kind of room you got underneath and whether you want tailpipes or dumps.

From what I have read it does make a difference. Center in Center out will be the quietest and flow the best...it is also the hardest one to fit.

AFAIK there are 4 types
1) Glass Pack
2) Labyrinth (stock type)
3) Sound Cancleation (like a Flowmaster)
4) Suppertrap

Im sure there are others but I think those are the main ones.

Thanks Fellas!
I ended up getting a set of thease:
flo-52572.jpg


70 Series Big Block II, Center 2.5 in. Inlet/Offset 2.5 in. Outlet, Oval, Aluminized Steel

These 70 series Big Block II mufflers are designed around a large case, for maximum volume and efficiency. They are 2 in. narrower than the original Big Block muffler, making them easier for installation in tight areas. Other features include a mild, mellow exhaust tone and a resonant tuning chamber for reduced interior sound levels.

I figure the slim design will help keep the rocks off of them /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif and now that I'm old and crusty I wanted a bit more quiet time in my rig /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

Yeah, I have listened to their sound bits too and they are pretty cool! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif That chevelle sounds really cool, so does the El Camino in the 30 series clips. I also like the dodge cummins clip. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

Those 70 series should sound nice...how is your motor swap coming?

Damn CitySlickers /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

The buildup is moving right along nicly. I still have unfinnished bathrooms in the house so I need to finnish them this weekend then I SHOULD beable to spend my weekends wrenching/modifying/installing/faking it/drinking beer/YYYYYYEEEEEHHHHHHAAAAAAAAABBC!
The REALLY COOL thing is I have the 23rd/24th&25th off from work, next week. My wife is going to a RealEstate seminar in So Cal so I had to take thease days off to get my kids off to school in the am and be there when they get off the bus at 2:30.
So that means from 7:30 to 2:30 with NO WIFE and NO KIDS

I'm not good with link stuff but go to the "mufflers" link and it should be in there listed with all the different series mufflers. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

Burt, I posted on the NCOR post you have going but go with a Gibson muffler. They are quieter than a Flowmaster but they come alive when you stand on it. In my older age I tend to like things a little quieter than before.
