Title: Muffler Recommendations '65 Chrysler
Post by: Scott on November 06, 2010, 02:10:06 PM
I converted the single exhaust system to duals when I restored the car.  The mufflers are still too loud and not to my liking for this car.  Can anyone recommend a muffler that will make the car sound as it did from the factory?

What mufflers did you put on that you don't like?

I found the cheap 25.00 mufflers did exactly what you are looking for.  Turbo muffs are pretty good too.  What did he put in there?

My 73 Imperial had dual exhaust already, but the mufflers were blown out. I put on a pair of Hemi mufflers from NAPA (69-71 Hemi B Body....and not real expensive ones). After finally getting to drive the thing on the highway, I am in the same boat as rexus31....too loud for a luxury car and boy do they drone! I thought I was stuck in 2nd gear on Rt 80!

I am going to put on a pair of resonators and tips that turn down like original. The Imperial website says to use glasspacks, but the guys at Borla East say they can make me real mufflers in the shape of the cherrybombs.

I have seen people add cherrybombs as resonators beside the gas tank.. just paint them grey to blend in...

My super turbos drone in the car under 2000 rpms.. it sucks.. but on the highway they're fine

No drone,quiet at cruising speed.
They do cackle under a load and are fun to listen to..

I have turbos on my '70 - I think they sound good.  Not too loud but a nice rumble.

I took my car to the muffler shop yesterday.  The guy told me I had the quietest mufflers available on the car already.  He put in an "H" pipe and 24" resonators on both sides.  The car sounds perfect now.  No more low RPM drone, nice and quiet.

Glass Pack GP24's.  I'm not sure if that is the part number or not but that's what it says on my invoice.

GP as in glass pack...24 as in 2 # 004's 
More like the shop's own way of writing their description on the invoice than the actual Manufacturer's part number,IMO.
Nothing wrong with that,really.I do it all the time at my shop.
<EDIT>
There is a GP universal fit  muffler for dual systems manufactured by GI systems from Korea.....
