New exhaust with video, 24 inch Glass Packs!

Recently got a Razzi body kit put on and regretfully got the exhaust extensions that came with it, nothing but a huge headache. And they didn't look good in my opinion with the kit. So today after being turned down by 4 shops in a row because they were scared to try to get the car on a lift, I finally found one that would work on it, and did an awesome job!

My previous set up was just small 9 inch glasspacks in the place of the stock mufflers, and also I took the resonators off. Today we put 24 inch glasspacks in place of where the resonators used to be and took off the 9 inch glasspacks. I have to say I am pretty pleased with the sound considering it is a V6 and all, and this was a pretty cheap set up compared to other options! It took away a lot of the high pitch drone, it's still pretty loud but not nearly as raspy as before. The videos do it no justice at all compared to in person, they were just taken on my cell phone.

Let me know what you think though, and if anyone has any questions I can do more videos with a slower drive by or whatever.

Yeah it's an amazing kit for sure! Don't know if you've already seen my thread with pictures of it, but here it is:

Thanks! I mean I know it will never sound like a V8, but I think for a V6 it's pretty good.

Really? I thought I had it set where anyone could watch it? Sorry about that, only reason I didn't put it on YouTube is because my account got messed up and I'm probably gonna have to make a new one.

I think it sounds pretty good. Would be nicer if it was higher quality but it works well enough. I'd like to see more. Maybe a cold start...and also more revs of different RPMs.

Do you have more info on the brand and model of these glasspacks....or is any glasspack like any other glasspack?

Thanks.

I know what you mean, I wish it was better quality. I will see what I can do. And I will do a cold start and a wider range of revs and whatnot also. And I believe they are cherry bombs. Not sure if there is a big difference with brands but I have always heard these are the way to go. Definitely a huge difference from the little 9 inch cheap ones I had before though.

Hmm, no telling. I'm sure it would sound good though

Also, I'm expecting these will get a little louder, that's what my old ones did once I got them broke in so to speak. lol Not a huge difference but they got a little louder. Next is a cool air intake, I'm hoping that makes a difference. It did on my truck.

Glass packs on a cherry bomb exhaust ? wonder if that would work? Reduce your drone any? Over all sound difference?

I can definitely say my drone went wayyyyy down compared to the little 9 inch glasspacks. Overall it's not as loud, but it has a better sound especially running wide open. I personally don't mind drone, but before there was a lot of it while cruising for sure.

If I put headers and a Cool Air intake in do you guys think it will make much of a difference?

intake will make a small but nice difference. Headers will make a very noticeable difference.

Gotta be careful what you do though. If you went shorty headers, they pretty much always make the car sound better.

Long tube headers will really wake the car up and make it growl, but also makes a lot of set ups really raspy. Otherwise, LTs paired up with the right exhaust sound amazing.

Probably going to do an intake first, and then do headers. Definitely don't want a raspy sound though, that's what I had before I did this new set up. Sounded great wide open, kind of like a race car. lol But other times it just wasn't that good of a tone.

It sounds awesome where did you order the glass packed resonators from?
