Default Glass pack or dynomax bullet or Vibrant resonator

Overtime is low. It looks like I may have to stick with the fart can. Y8 says bullet with the magnaflow. That is what I want to go with.
I called Dynomax and they recomended the Thrush glass pack for quietness. But it was $99.00.

Has anyone had any experiance with this one.

I can probably get you a Vibrant 1142 for $105 Shipping included. Let me know if you are interested and I can double check.

Will it stop "alot" more of the noise compared to the perferated core glasspack?

It muffles more than a glass pack, but not sure I wanna say a lot.

Glasspacks reduce the intensity of the sound waves better than resonators. But glasspacks wear out over time. Ever couple years they wear out (usually). But they are cheap and work well for a while.

I got 3 Cherry Bomb glasspacks from Performance pedller. Like 100 bucks for two 24" core and a 27" core.

In general the larger the body the more quieting.
