    Searched and searched and can't find an intelligent answer as to which muffler type sounds deeper, not high pitch and raspy, either a chambered muffler or a straight thru muffler design? Seems like somebody has to have a scientific answer considering the general consensus between h pipe and x pipe is h pipe sounds deeper and x sounds raspy. Really want a deep rumble sound not a high pitch sound but not sure if I should start with looking at chambered or straight thru...

    I've had chambered on h-pipe, chambered on x-pipe, straight through on both h-pipe and x-pipe. IMO the chambered/h-pipe setup gave me the deepest sound. Everything else was as loud as that, but not as deep.

    Looks like age old grass poking through the cracks. Grab some grass killer.

    Chambered or straight through? Good question, but my question is packed or not packed. Usually a straight through will be glasspacked and they are normally the deep rumble toned mufflers for performance. And their are "turbo" style mufflers(nothing to do with turbo, just a name). They are somewhat chambered and have quiet deep rumble that growl when rpm's are up, but buy a good brand. Something stainless or welded or youll blow them apart.

    If you feel adventurous, go to the autoparts store and grab a thrush turbo or cherry bomb turbo muffler and get it installed. 2 can be had for around $50. Deep rumble is what youll get.
