Re: Californis Turbos equalivant

well these lasted good while.I know not thrush or a Cherry bomb. I know will not find same ones but looking for something with simular sound. Cherry bombs diffently not it,glass packs not happening and the now popular Flow master just have a annoying sound while running at constant speed. Amy check you tube for videos of differant muffler.

Re: Californis Turbos equalivant

AS to which flowmaster can't say . Ive riden in probaly 8 or 10 vehicles with them and never heard one I liked. I know some love them and I wouldnt care if they where flowmasters aslong as that freakingmoan/hum sounds not here.

Bad part on mufflers they are like hot clean wheel and tires. Can't reraly tell wht they are going to look/sound like tell you buy them and try them on then you own them.


ANYONE running Borla's?

I moved this from the "detailing section" to the 67-72 message board to try and get you some extra hits.

Cherry Bomb and Thrush both make multiple mufflers, not just the "glasspacks" They also make Chambered (like flowmaster) and Turbo mufflers. I run a Thrush Turbo on my little daily driver Mazda because it gives a nice quiet sound with no drone, only slightly louder/deeper than stock. (Well actually WAY quieter than the stock rusted out muffler). Dynomax/Walker, and plenty of others offer turbo mufflers as well.

From the sound of what you describe a Magnaflow muffler might would suit you fine, it gives a nice deep refined tone without drone (if you pick out the right one). Remember the longer the case, the quieter and less drone you will have.

Re: Californis Turbos equalivant

Sounds like your looking for the turbo muffler they are still available from companies like Walker through their Dynomax line. The turbo muffler got its name from the design use on the Turbo Corvairs, the street crowd soon figured out the Corvair muffler was less restrictive than anything else (at the time). I used to have only Sonic Turbos on all my vehicles until I switched to the chambered mufflers.

Re: Californis Turbos equalivant

Hey guys. We have been working with a start-up company called Black Widow Mufflers. They are going to produce a line of mufflers for new and classic muscle cars. They use what they call a 'velocity vortex' to cancel the sound pulsing and increase the flow. Dyno results show gains above other aftermarket mufflers. These guys helped me with the muffler design on my new red C-10, the Hell-Boy. Bad news is I woudn't expect production units avail for sale until july.

Re: Californis Turbos equalivant

I just put in Cherry Bomb Vortex mufflers. They sound good. Not glasspack loud and rattly.
