the longer the glasspack, the quieter and the shorter it is, the louder. same principle with other mufflers as well. I personally don't have a glasspack on my ranger but best way i can describe it is you can tell it's not stock. It will have some raspiness to it assuming the rest of your exhaust is stock. Stock pipes and cat. I think a 30in pack, you might be able to tell a difference but not much on a small 4banger. Hope this helps -Mike-

I tried a 24" glasspack on my truck, the following day I bought the gibson cat-back system. The sound from the glasspack is terrible! It did rev a bit quicker, but sounded like sh**!
