Well glasspack is a muffler. It normally utilizes just fiberglass packing to deaden sound. Like magnaflow and cherry bomb is an example of glass pack mufflers.

I think it depends on x/h pipe and cat or cat-less. If you do it right I think the magnapack will sound good.

Hey, seems like any little thing you do makes a world of difference when it comes to exhaust, I say do it, I wanted one at first, but now I think I'm goin for like a flow master 40 or 44, haven't decided.

Yeah I have a flow40 now but I want a magnaflow. Don't get me wrong flowmasters sound mean but personally the metal sound gets old. I rather have a deeper smoother sound that may be a little more quiet.

Especially since 99% of the people on this site have flowmaster, means most ponys sound the same lol

If u want magnaflo just leave the stock mufflers on it, ther just as quiet. My car came with magnaflos, I put lt headers,o/rx on and barely made any difference.

I'd say a Mac prochamber along with pype bomb axle backs should sound beast on a v6.

I agree, they have a metal sound on the v6, sounds like a tractor almost. I too prefer the magnaflow.

When I bought my Stang it came with a single thrush on it real quit rumble

---------- Post added at 08:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:55 AM ----------

I have actually been wondering about magnaflow tho I was told at a few different muffler shops around these parts that the flow master 10 series sounds the best for v6 mustangs gives it the deep v8 sound they say all I have heard is ones on YouTube

I know this is a prety old thread, but I just wanted to say, I just installed a magnaflow glass pack today, and so far I like it. I got the longest one and just had a shop weld it straight to my Ypipe then dump it before the axle and weld a turn down so it won't suck up water, whole setup, labor and all (since I can't weld :/) came to about $100, not to bad? And I think I feel a few more ponies from it too hahaha

I've heard it mellows it out and doesn't pop as much when you rev it with the longer glasspacks

From what I understand it still gargles. The longer pack just makes it sound alittle less ricey and doesn't make that annoying popping noise when coming down from revs. My car is currently in the shop as we speak. High flow cats bassanni x pipe and two 28 inch thrush glasspacks. I can't wait to hear the difference

I'm psyched to get my car back. Before I had divorced dual with stock gt take off mufflers with stock cats and it wasn't nearly loud enough. I swear the car was quieter at idle than the stock exhaust. The only time it sounded good was almost Wot at about 2200-3500 rpms. I'm hoping the high flows the x pipe with glass packs and the change to 2.5 in piping will open her up alittle

On our even fire sixes they are not required. They are supposed to balance backpressure and they change the tone a bit. H's are a bit more deep and rumbly and x's are a bit more raspy and gargly

the X-Pipe will give a slightly better performance then an H-pipe.
