Mufflers or Not?

Post  Dave C. on April 3rd 2013, 5:27 pm

I looked through the old posts and couldn't find what I was lookin for. I'm gettin closer to completing my Torino and was wondering how many guys are running mufflers. If so , what mufflers do u prefer. Thanks .

unless you want the added weight I say no. If you to the magnaflow race mufflers seem to offer the best performance and amount of sound dampening.....which aint much.

I run 4"Magnaflow Race mufflers only because my Dr. told me too because of my hearing loss. It quieted it down quite a bit,don't know about perf. I doubt I will see much diff. if any.

I really like the sound - and it is alot better on what little hearing i have left........designed the chassis to run 3-1/2" Magnaflows, turnouts just before the rear tires. It sure has a unique sound compared to open pipes.

Yeh...I noticed WAY less noise in the car when the collectors exit the fenders. When the collectors were under the floor, I used to stuff in earplugs before the helmet went on. Not necessary now.

I used to run Borlas on my 514 in the dragster. If they weren't so heavy, I'd still run them. You'd be surprised what you can hear with the mufflers.
