They sound illegal in all 50 states. I used to run them "back in the day" on '70's muscle cars, they are real loud and sound great but you will get pulled over by every cop you pass. Definately not going to go with your sleeper scheme.

I ran them back in the early 80s, back when they were cool.

wanna kind of car do you have? i have a 3.4 liter v6 2003 monte carlo and i put glasspacks (aka cherrybombs) on and it didnt sound too good, so i thought i would see how my car sounded with the exhaust dumped. its sounds real badass, so i have kept it dumped ever since

glasspacks are nothing more than the smallest muffler the you can get. they also usually burn out in a couple of months. you also need to rember that you need proper backpressure which glasspacks will not provide

i still wanna put one on a harley
It actually would be quieter than open pipes.. Open pipes on a car are waaaay louder than one with a glass pack on it.

To the poster, just get some cheap 14.95-19.95 generic "turbo" mufflers. Good sound and won't break the bank.. Should be able to get them from jegs, summit or a local muffler shop that does alot of v8 exhaust..

yeah i know the glass packs are much quiter then the straight pipe but

that harly "potato potato " sound with a short cherry bomb glass pack

its just a curious thing for me, wondering what it would sound like.

oh, @ the poster, weld up some zoomies
make your own ,

but i assume you need it street legal so that aint gonna work
