A glass pack is nothing more than a straight perforated tube stuffed with fibreglass. After a several hundred miles the fiberglass burns up and the pipes get louder.

No, you'd have a horribly loud crappy sounding poor performing car.

Actually... They sounded damn good like this. Setup like a STS exhaust kinda.

It was quieter then my car, and almost sounded more natural.

I'll get pix up in a sec.
