Polaraco sounds great.Not loud at idle,nice burble when cruising and awesome when on it getting up to speed on the on-ramp!
 
That is a compliment.A smallblock that has a big block sound.Very nice deep tone,not blatty.
Both Matt and I had driven Polaraco on different ocassions and indeed it does sound great.
The exhuast is not loud enough to drown the stereo nor talking to others inside the car.   
The Dynomax muffler # I suggested was designed as a direct replacement for the Hemi muffler.
If you think they are too loud for your taste,may I suggest Walker Quiet Flow equal replacement to it.

I have a New Yorker and the exhaust is not loud with the Dynomax mufflers included in the TTI system.
Everybody's taste is different ,and I respect that.
Try Walker 21768 which is a direct fit replacement for a 79 NY'er with the factory 360 dual set up.The outlet for the tailpipes are 2" but can be bumped to fit 2-1/4" tailpipes.
For more choice of mufflers for your car,go here:

Again,I suggested the Magnaflow 93500 series cat convertors.

The key to the quiet cabin is th have the exhaust exit right at the end edge of the car.  I had to put extensions on for a lousey  4 inches.  Made a big difference.  I'm still working on quietuieting down the car. . .But now the cabin noise is half of what it was when Lea heard it. . . I think Matt can tell you the diff.  He heard before and after

It wasn't really that bad to begin with, but it was noticeable at steady speed and upon acceleration.  Those extensions worked amazingly well.  The exhaust resonation noticed in the cabin virtually disappeared.

That's because, once again, I pay people to do a job with instructions, and pay them well.  They take the money but don't follow instructions.  I told him to vent those pipes with a factory curl at the end and cut off, right behind the valance and let them stick down a inch.
 
But instead I ended up with those gaudy extensions sticking out 3 inches.

Wow.  What I want to know is when do I get to drive Polaraco?

First I gotta find someone who will do custom work.  No one in Ithaca will touch the car to put on duals unless "it came from the factory that way."  I tried explaining it was an option....but they've all said unless it's got duals on now, they won't put it on.

I did check out the Walker site you mentioned - wonderful for getting info.  Thanks a bunch.  I'm sure I'll find something that'll work.

You can buy a builder's kit and make one yourself, too. :-P

I did my exhaust on my Jeep with a friend for approx 150.00.  Used a 2.25 builder kit that was mandrel bent, magnaflow y-pipe (2.25 -> 2.5), 20' section of 2.25 and a thrush welded 2-chamber.  Took us two Saturdays or so and had some fun doing it too.  Wanted to do dual but did not have the space on the pass side between the xfer case and frame rail.

Only thing - we had plenty of room to work with under the Jeep.

Now working on getting my Eddy Performer Intake\\Carb on...that will take another two weekends.
