Hi all,

I need some advice. What are people using for mufflers with their 180 headers? I have been using Supertrapps for years now and they are getting a little dated. I want a good sounding muffler to attach to the headers. The engine is quite built with Webers also and a 618 lift roller cam. Street driven and not tracked.
Not too worried about noise, but don't need any tickets either for excessive noise! They will be ceramic coated. Any suggestions?

I saw this Pantera which, if I recall correctly was equipped with 180s, pull into the parking lot at the hotel in Monterey in 2006, and I swear it sounded like a WWII bomber radial engine. I felt the sound in my chest. Just wicked.

I never did get to meet the owner, but I know the car was featured in either POCA Profiles or PI International magazine, so somebody is bound to recognize it and, hopefully, post information about the owner here for you.

I would track them down and ask them about the mufflers they used, because the sound is unforgettable.

As far as the muffs, the quality is excellent and they are very light weight. I can't attest to sound level yet but I expect them to be similar to my SPF GT40 which is fine by me but I suspect might be a little objectionable for some. There is a dual pass version which fits the same space and is also repackable that would have lower sound levels. I have my tail pipe extensions turned down which also helps a bit. They fit my available space well but are pretty pricey as far as mufflers go but packed with scrubble instead of glass they'll be a life of vehicle muffler albeit slightly heavier than glass only packing.
