I had a 18" or 22" glass pack muffler and it was loud enough that I replaced it with something quieter after a few years.

With my Ranger, it took about a week and a half for the glass pack to break in and become louder.

no...i've had mine straight piped with a sidepipe before....and well....i base my opinion on having actually had it..... had is the key word...




People think flowmaster at high rpms is raspy and ricey, they've not heard a straight pipe then...
