mufflers

I have been going through some older post and I have a question, is the walker quite flow that is mentioned the same as the walker Cadillac mufflers that were talked about some time back?

Tight, but they fit. 
The ugly welds on the driver side tailpipe are because I sawzalled the tailpipe two separate times, getting it to fit perfect.

Re: mufflers

after seeing how close everything is I am wondering about if this will go under my 64 falcon. I may wait until I put in my t5 to see if I can tolerate the noise of those MF 40 or what ever they are.

Re: mufflers

I had the Walker Quiet Flows (Cadillac) fitted to mine. I just gave them to the exhaust shop and they fitted them no problem.
Great muffler!

Re: mufflers

6sal6, almost 69, i think my hearing is fine with the exception of high pitches. noise is one thing i can do without. i just don't care for loud. i miss the days of the late 60's early 70's those sounds are what i like. my brother had a 70 ranchero 429 cobra jet, top loader, loved th way that sounded. i am smart enough to know you won't get that sound out of a 302 with 9:1 compression ratio, i sure would like to get close. i am assuming the mufflers are 40's, but they were on the car when i bought it, so i don't know. at 80 with a 3.25 gear it is way to loud. yes the tail pipes run all the way past the rear bumper.

Re: mufflers

We are almost the same age (72)
As much as I "bloviate" about noisy cars and snotty idle Too much racket at speed gets old in a hurry! The OD tranny makes a HUGE difference.
You can do other things to help also. I made a solid panel between the trunk and back seat of the car. I used a layer of expanded foam (comes in 4 X 8 sheets at home improvement store) also behind the seat. Second layer of carpet in the cabin. Seal ALL holes/cracks in cabin(helps with outside dust too!)  Replaced plastic weather shield in doors with thicker covering(peel and stick) covered all holes in door with peel & stick. Keep in mind tire noise is greatly reduced if you cover them (on the inside) with sound dampening stuff (I used peel & stick).
You can do lotsa stuff to quiet the inside while  "raising caine" on the outside. IMHO

Re: mufflers

Yup, look 'em up.  Lots of variations.  The #22430, which Josh has on his FB and I'm pretty sure are going on the Heap are 17" long (muffler body) with 2" inlet and outlet.  He seems to be pretty happy with them...maybe he'll chime in.

Re: mufflers

Chime time.
BB is correct on the muffs I'm running. Got mine at summit. I did a search on their site for those specific mufflers but, not a specific car. Instead, I scrolled thru the listings, reading the specs, until I found a muffler that works with my 2" exhaust system. If you're running a two inch exhaust, we've done the work for you. If not, you can research summit like I did.  I like how they sound at idle and aren't loud at cruise. Mine are on a 66 FB.
