Glasspack On 4.3 V6?

Glasspack On 4.3 V6?

Postby Callahan [OP] » Sep 13 2012, 9:38am

I'm currently considering a glasspack for my Silverado. I've done some research on the subject/idea, but am still unsure. What's the best glasspack (in your opinion based on price, quality, sound, and longevity)? If I have no Cat, will it be overly loud? I ask because while inspecting my exhaust, I couldn't see one. And, finally, would it even be worth it to put a glasspack on instead of a normal muffler? experiences, opinions, and reccomendations are highly appreciated.

I personally like a glasspack on a V-8, but not a V-6. I'd get something more along the lines of a flowmaster for the V-6 rather than a glasspack. In my opinion the glasspacks sound bad on the V-6.

I agree with Jordan I would stay away from a glasspack on a v-6. You should look into the Flowmaster 40 or 44.

I had a 4.3 in my old silverado and had a super 40 with no cats and it sounded great. The glasspack isn't made for the v6.

My favorite glasspacks would be the Summit Racing Glasspack, great value and sound great on almost anything other than ricers and 4cyl's but thats my personal opinion

I'm with the above. A glasspack on a 6 won't sound right. IMO. I have a 4.3 and I put a heartthrob system on it and it made it sound like a v8. I can post a video if you want.

Had a Flowmaster 40 on my S10. Sounded like an 8, the cam and other eng mods didn't hurt either.
