Default Like them but had to fight with a drone initially

I've had these versions for a long time; not even sure if they sale these exact ones anymore. They were listed as 80-82 corvette mufflers at the time, which meant custom muffler hangers.

They initially had a pretty bad drone that was a bit annoying, but after adding an X-pipe and some Car Chemistry inserts just behind the headers I really like the sound now.

Motor is a modified ZZ4 with GM's "LT4 hot cam" with full length headers.



Here's a few pics of when I was fabricating the exhaust.

I'm running these on my 454. They are the only ones I've found that don't drone. Tried flowmasters, dynomax super turbo, and dynomax ultraflow. All droned.

If anyone wants some cheap, barely used, dynomax turbos or ultraflows, let me know.
