Thumbs up Just installed a thrush glasspack

decided to do some exhaust work today, and i hate spending a ton of money on the catback systems so i decided to get a thrush glasspack and just clamp it in place of the stock muffler. found one at advanced auto that was 28" long, and also got a 12" pipe that i could cut to size to fill in the extra 8 inches or so left from the huge stock muffler. got it all done in about 30 min and it sounds incredible. just what i was looking for, and doesnt drone at all in the cab. has a really nice low big block kind of sound to it, would def recommend this.

So when you say Thrush GlassPack, are you talking about the Turbo Tubes that are the "crimped" style ?

Thrush glasspacks are pretty much identical to the cherry bomb glasspacks. One company bought out the other one, can't remember which. It's just a straight through muffler with fiberglass baffling on the inside.

Okay, I was asking because Thrush made a series of GlassPacks called Turbo Tubes that have crimps in them and are incredibly loud but sound awesome ! I installed them on my GMC right before they were outlawed.
