Glasspacks on a 5.7...
 
Is anyone here running them. I have the Gibson exhaust but I want louder. My idea would be to keep the Gibson piping and resonator and just put a glass pack in its place. Any input would be appreciated.

Edit:
Found this vid...I like it

You could probably install it with what's called a "U" clamp and sleeves if you don't have access to a welder. I installed some Thrush glass packs on a 390ci Ford FE motor, you can hear me coming before you can see me.

Thats probably what I will do. Crestwood glasspacks are just a type of muffler. So you can cut the magnaflow out and put the glasspacks in their place via clamps or welding.

I would have it welded in, links to something that would work for my 4.7? My magnaflow is loud, but has drone, I want something louder though, will it be any better?

Try YouTube. I kno if I do it I will be keeping the resonators in. Drone may be worse with the glasspacks.
