you could always ( if you REALLY wanted to do this) take said muffler. cut a square out of the top of it, and take the guts out ( spotwelds im guessing) THEN take a piece of exhaust tubing and run straight through the muffler, and weld the top back on. grind the welds, paint it. put it back in place and you will have a straight pipe exhaust with the look of a muffler...

Heard they are making Cherry Bomb mufflers again. Back in the 60's you could look through them. Loud.

If you want something that is loud, go with the cherrybomb extreme mufflers, they are identical to the flowmaster 10 series, but the cherrybombs are like $30-40 a muffler compared to a $100-110 flowmaster.

im not sure what kind of flowmaster series i have on my car but they were there when i bought it. im not happy with them. i recently did shorties, and o/r h pipe and the sound of the car barley changed. i dont want the car to be a cop magnet, but i would like to hear it a bit more
