Any decent noises if I swap glass pack for factory muffler? August 18, 2019, 10:26:34 AM Waiting on bits for my fuel system rebuild. Noticed my tail pipe is rotten. I have two schools of thought. I live in Pennsylvania in a county whose emission standards are as strict as California. In a college town who is funded directly by college children’s car window tint . Mirror reflectivity and exhaust decibel levelSo I must keep my smog pump lines and hoses. I notice this exhaust disconnected at the cats , has more of a shshshshshshshsshhhhh compressed air sound ,than engine note. Taking that’s the smog pump.So instead of illegally driving my car with expired inspections. Thinking Maybe go ultra quiet. “Pull the interior, dyno mat everything and put a high quality sound system in. Soft springs for a ultra cruiser experience. The other option is to listen to my inner 17 year old , wants to clothes hanger up a cherry bomb and a $22.00 tailpipe then install air shocks with 4” of rake and cross fingers. But I’m sure that’s a horrible option. Bought the car solely on sentimental reasons. Hard to nail down a objective. Part of me wants a crate motor monster. Which here is impossible unless you have a source for licks and sticks. But I’m starting to settle for vacation/beach/. Long haul cruiser. If it was my choice I’d unbolt those buckets and use them in my living room they’re so damn comfy. Stuck in a rut I guess builders block. I dunno thoughts on going “elegance vs performance “ ?
