Going from straight pipes to glasspacks

Hey everyone I'm going to put glasspacks on my 2013 3.7 mustang, just thought I'd post this and do a before and after. Going to the shop Friday.

Currently I have straight pipes from the mid pipe back and I travel too much to stand the drone, because at 65-70 it's pretty bad. Sounds good though, so I just wanna mellow it out and make it more stand able. Any input would be cool!

I don't wanna be that guy but my 22" Glasspacks didn't get rid of any drone for me. Just took some of the rasp out throughout the RPM range.

Sent from the future.

Sounds like you'll be going from obnoxious loud to just annoying loud...maybe resinators will help with the drone. This may be a question for a good muffler shop to answer.

Glasspacks and resonators wiill deepen the sound a bit and maybe even tone it down a bit. The drone will most likely stay. Let us know how it goes.

What does everyone think?
Sounds mean! I love the sound and I was just wondering what are the dimensions of the Glasspacks I mean what's the body diameter and the in/out diameter. Also how much did the glasspacks and straight pipes cost you? and one more thing did the glasspacks quite down the sound a lot?

Sorry for these lots of questions I just loved it and looking to do the same

They are generic 18" with 2 3/4" diameter piping. Cost 70 altogether, and really did quiet down, but was vee eery loud before
