I am getting ready to go to a track who requires mufflers. Most, or all of the guys there run turbo glass packs or gut there glass packs and run pipe all the way through where it just looks like the muffler. I have a friend who said I could have a set of racing mufflers off his late model. How do these compare to regular mufflers, or should I just gut one like everyone else?

I think its more like a baffel, but at my track they pass as a muffler.

Schoenfeld racing mufflers. I run the 8" long 4" dia. ones. They're $15 each from Daymotorsports. When looking through them, they have a 3" opening straight through and basically just have a perforation with a 1/2" airgap to the outside layer. They didn't look like they'd do anything, but they actually knock the noise down a couple decibels. My home track doesn't require them, but I put them on in case I go to another track in my area that does. From what my crew tells me, you can hardly hear my car over the others (with no mufflers).

Cheap and easy, Run the glasspacks, but turn them around and run them backwards.
Less restrictive,and you have mufflers on.

I run the inserts mainly its easier to take the headers out of the car with the motor in(on my car) and I had clearance issues with my motor setback and my x-brace, they are also a bunch lighter. They may not be legal by your rules.

Thanks guys,
I put the mufflers on and went down there to race, started 8th and passed the leader coming out of four and beat him by a fender. Thanks again fo the help!
