Default What exhaust sounds good. 351C

Hello ive officially saved enough to buy new mufflers and headers. I want to get an opinion first tho. Right now i have 2 1/4IMCO exhaust and IMCOturbo mufflers which are a nice deep sound but kinda quite for me. I was thinking of ordering hedmann headers. Any sound diffrence in the diffrent headers brand/or type? Also what muffler would soundpretty loud at idle but have a nice deep pitch? I was looking at glasspacks but they sound almost like an open header. By the way i have a 70 coupe which holds a 351 cleavland. no mods that i know of.

thanks!

My preference is Magnaflow...More mellow is Dynomax...more raspy is Flowmaster. All are qualitity mfgrs, power loss on any is negligible.

its all based on your preference. if you dump the pipes before the rear axle it will be louder, so thats your call. i have used flowmasters on my II and on my 06GT and i love the sound of them on both, but mufflers are one of those things that is strictly a matter of opinion because as stated above HP losses will be negligibile

ohh gawd...I have 3 inch pipes on my 410c with Flow master 40s....I am forced to run dumps for a while and it is much too loud. With the old setup and the pipes out the back it was very enjoyable however.
