Actually if u aint a old man they sound ok...

not like a closed chamber muffler

i run one on my BII with the stock 2.9 and it sounds great... also on the wifes yj sounds totally different.. definatley not stockish....

the BII not to loud well sometimes it is loud enough to set of car alarms and shit but thats usually only decleration and full load .. other wise regular cruising it is quiet...

on the plus side they are like under 40.00 bucks and easy to install small enough they dont hang up on rocks ,trees , bodies ect......

Dan, sooooo that's what that sound was. I always thought you had a whole in your muffler.;)

Got a buddy that uses them, welds two together for each pipe on a V8...sounds pretty good. [cheers]

muffler whats that:dontknow: glass packs are straight through with slight louverd edges...no baffels to come loose or shit inside to collapse... and being round they take a shit kicking.... small and tuck nicley out of harms way and ya Joe they do sound great on a V8

the rest of ya can keep paying for your flowmasters and expensive exhaust components.

im cheap and will continue to run glass paks and only glass paks...
i would rather invest my $ in histeer and lockers....stuff that will actually benifit my rig....[cheers]

do the cherrybombs have enough backpressure though to maintain horsepower? or do you loose a bit of power and just gain more sound...cause I wanna get something nice and loud for my truck but still not loose any power..:confused0006:

they maintain back pressure fine..... just stay with the proper diameter pipe.... same as any Muffler.....

cherry bomb muffler or cherry bomb glasspack?

Basically the same thing glass pak = thrush ,red rocket , cherry bomb ect.......meaning the sound deadener is fiberglass..

12-21-2006, 03:54 PM
ok then do mean the glass pack muffler or the glass pack tube.

cherry bomb does make a muffler, they're also cheap... but they do work some

MetalMan

Glasspacks are fine for something you don't care about. Honestly, compared to more expensive mufflers, they do sound like shit. The only engine I can stand them on is a V8. Cheap way to keep the cops a little happier, and the size is a bonus for a bush rig too. For a wheeling machine/beater they're great, for almost anything else they're garbage...

And Cherry Bomb does make a muffler as well as a glasspack.

hmm yea well i need to put some thing on my tuck its just got straight pipes on it now

BAM
12-21-2006, 06:36 PM
i had one on my 3.0 and i thought it sounded fine, wouldnt have put anything else on, and for 30 bones you cant go wrong.. as far as back pressure, most engines the back pressure does not affect power nor do they need much back pressure, theyve tested 100s of engines on dynos testin back pressure and there was no diff on most

MetalMan

I ran open headers for months, believe it or not...got away with it. I put glasspacks on it, shortly after I got pulled over and VI'd. [13] [27]

Think Pressure pulse ,resonance and velocity in relation to expelling exhaust gasses .(not neccecarily in that order) .

MetalMan
12-21-2006, 06:47 PM
Ironically, glasspacks don't flow as well as most people think...

barracuda
12-21-2006, 06:53 PM
it actually depends on the construction (Design) of the glassback . all things being equall a glassback has the ability to provide the highest velocity with potentially the least amount of back pressure.

nile go to canadian tire and order up maremont part #M30001. Its on page 1384 of the 2005 Maremont exhaust catalog if they have it. Its a 3" mandrel bent tail pipe, exits behind the rear passenger wheel at a 45 degree and only costs $37.08. You cant buy the length of pipe for that much, let alone the bends. Who cares if anyone says its too big for a 300, you wont find anything as good as that deal.

The longer a glasspack is the better they sound. Dynomax's race bullet is a 'pack, so are all magnaflows...just newer technology.

open headers cruising beside a vi officer then he asks something next to us i say i cant hear ya bang ya got pulled over wonder why?

well if i was running a supercharged alcohol burning race engine, i wouldnt have to worry about backpressure...but since i have a slightly modified mostly stock engine i thought backpressure is important so that you dont burn your exhaust valves out...only reason i say this is because i know on dirtbikes and motorcycle engines...the way a muffler and exhaust system are designed can make or break a bikes performance, so i thought it would apply to a truck engine as well...i am new to this so dont jump on me:fighting0071:

I didn't have open headers then anymore, asshat, it had glasspacks.

Troy, those are probably 2-stroke dirtbikes, aren't they.

both...4 stroke mufflers are just as important or even more for backpressure cause of the valves..any small engine for that matter

it is not back pressure that is needed you fuck nut. Figure it out ,seek out information for the questions you have and dont stop looking till you have the answers.

If i just tell you thwe answers you will forget it, but if you have to look up the info yourself there is a better chance you will retain the knowledge.

i ran a cherry bomb turbo muffler on my 2.4L toyotafor about 3 years, it was nice and quiet until you stomped on it, then you could clearly hear it about 6 blocks away

I got a loud exhaust and its shitty on startup cause i leave for work around 7am and its a straight street with houses on both sides and it reverberates down the street.Not good.


But when i'm gunnin' it and stuff they sound awesome.Glasspacks are loud, especially without a cat. I'm guessing a cat would somewhat lessen the sound.

back pressure will only come in to play if there is a decrease in the flow of gases escaping from the system.... ie baffeld mufflers crushed exhaust pipe ...oversized exhaust.. ect....pressure=Force x area force being the flow of gases from the pump (engine) higher rpm more flow same volume but more flow results in pressure. a 350 cu is sill only 350 cu even at 6000 rpm. it is only a increase in flow same force pushing the gases out just faster..

if one were to over size the exhaust u would lose the renosance pulse that effectivley works with your engine to expel gases in a effiecnt manner ..
lose this pulse u can burn valves.. but u would notice a substanial loss of power first mostly in smaller displacment engines.....

this is why a true dual exhaust should use a H or x pipe crossover...


if im wrong excuse me and then educate me :dontknow:

go flowmaster, cherry bombs flow like shit, i had to put one on my truck to make it quieter and lost like 5 hp, and on a 4 cyl thats big diffrence

Here is a bit of info , there is a whole bunch more books on it and lots on the net and it can even explain the valve issues some have brought up

thanks every one, think cherry bombs would sound good on a 4.9L? i just have pipes now no exhaust and i think it sounds good.

MetalMan

Frankly, I think it would sound like shit. But everybody has their own standards. I consider them cheap, economical mufflers...and you get what you pay for.

cherrybombs kick ass if you break it wheeln they are not that costly and get a pretty good sound out of them

u can get a 2.5" 40 series flowmaster at lordco for $78.99 i think that is pretty cheap and is gonna sound decent
