Turbo Thrush or Glasspack?

well im looking for a cheap exhaust and i found glasspacks 25$ and under, turbo thrush for 25$ and up. Ive seen the turbo muffler sounds pretty good. But i havent seen what the glasspack sounds like. Im running a straight pipe right now with a resinator. Anybody have any sound clips or tips for what im looking for? thanks

spend a little bit more and get a stainless steel magnaflow. more clear tone and lasts forever. I would suggest my muffler, but its pretty expensive. go with an 18" if you want a low quiet tone, 14" if you want something a little bit louder.

I'm running the turbo thrush with a downey header, no cat and 2.25 exuast. At idle and normal driving it sounds good. The upper range when full bore is a little raspy for my taste and had to add a resonator tip which helped but its still there a little. It could be due to the fact I am not running a cat.

here's some videos I just posted:

Under your mods in the link where you posted your vids it says you have a "magnaflo hi-flow cat" but your saying you dont have one? (in the idle vid it appears you dont) I am thinking of running the Borla muffler with no cat as well. The video with revs 3-5K is that with or without a cat? Thanks!

I'll explain. I have both a Inner changeable cat and a test pipe... both the same length, both with flanges.

Videos with cat:

The videos WITHOUT the cat is what I linked above, in the other post.

differences between the two:

you'd like to think theres no difference between the two, but there is. The cat was a little quieter throughout the powerband, but had a deeper lower tone at low rpms.

without the cat. its a much louder tone, very very deep. and it ROARS through the power band. you can easily hear me blocks away if im WOT.

I like glasspacks. I have the 3.0 in my truck, and it sounds pretty good. here are some videos.
Idle with some revs

Driving with the windows down

I tried to watch these on my laptop, and they werent loud enough to hear, because i have weak speakers. If you have weak speakers, i suggest using headphones, but don't turn it up too loud, the truck is pretty loud. good speakers should have no problems at all.

yeah, where i live it's illegal to run it without the Cat, and my dad works for the state. I have run it on just the cat before, and it was loud, but sounded nasty, like a huge diesel truck(I know, that's an opinion thing). It's not the loudest out there, but I'm not trying to be obnoxious, and we have noise ordinances here too. Plus, I like the tone, and it is loud enough that I have to shout to be heard by people in the back seat.

I never said yours was obnoxious, in fact, I think yours sounds extremely good. If I had the money to do headers, I would. I just noticed that the OP said slightly quiet. I get remarks all the time from people saying that they can hear me coming a block or two away. Mine is quiet on the inside, but on the outside its a little louder. If you want, I can do a drive-by or to, and show you what it sounds like.
