So, your replacing your muffler with a glass pack?
Its going to be really loud and more than likely raspy.

Save your stock muffler. You may want to go back to it. I never heard a car on a glasspack that didn't sound like ***.

That kinda reminds me of the one we put under Ben'* car.

He says it'* loud and it'* coupled with an 18"(I think) magnaflow resonator.

I heard Ben'* when I was down in AZ and it'* definitely loud, but I don't remember hearing any raspiness. That doesn't mean it can't happen though I guess since it may not be the same model.

Edit - That resonator may be the key.
