Yes, you're likely right. It probably is your ears.

That exhaust system has destroyed your hearing.

Re: Magna-Flow?

I was about to do the Magnaflow on my car (350) but picking up a Bassani 2.5 inch stainless with their 16 inch muffler. Comes with an X pipe. They developed a kit for the SB 66/67 but didn't move forward with manufacturing. I know this will change the car dramatically which I love. I think the sound will fit the whole scheme of my car. Still undecided wether replacing my dragging rusted long tubes with shorties or mids.

I checked out Bassani's website but didnt really see anything for bigblock Chevelle. Post a video of your 350 with the exhaust when you install it if you would.

Will do. There is a PDF on the install on their site on a big block. YouTube has a marketig video of the same car but stupid song overshadows it. They are a small company so not a lot marketing.

I should have it in a couple weeks.

Re: Magna-Flow?

Im not a big fan of the magnaflows, only because I like a harder hitting, louder idle. They do perform great and look nice!
Pops loves them- they are on his 70 SS454 chevelle (mild 461)2.5" all the way to the bumper, his 67 4-4-2 (mild efi, aluminum headed 462 olds roller) 3" and dump over the axle, and his 70 Torino cobra (11:1 521 roller with a healthy cam) 3" dumped at the muffler exit. All 3 are X pipe systems with headers.
They are stealth-like quiet at idle and VERY quiet at cruise. Even the big inch/big cam torino is quiet, but has a very deep, chest beating 'thump thump' at idle.
Stand on the gas and its a whole other story.....all 3 cars ROAR like satan himself is coming!
If I was ever going to build a sleeper type car, it would have magnaflows on it, hands down!

Cool Re: Magna-Flow?

I used the 2 1/2" Magnaflows on my mild 468 and it was perfect, deep low tone at idle and part throttle and plenty of noise when on it. Quiet for the long cruises with the exhaust exiting diagonally out and down by the rear bumper. It was louder in the cabin when I had it exiting at factory location behind the rear wheel. The tone is loud enough and low enough that this past summer when we stopped at the ice cream shop, the Import show that was there was waiting for us to leave to hear it. There was no interest in seeing how fast it was after they heard it. Can't post a video with sound now, 29" of snow yesterday.

Re: Magna-Flow?

FWIW, since were on the subject of exhaust:
these are flowmaster 30 series "top ten shootout" race mufflers, behind a 626hp 496, 3" pipes and muffs with dumps at the axle.
Theyre pretty tame for a flowmaster, and the car picks up NO time and <1mph in the 1/8 when uncorked, so theyre not hurting the power much, even behind the big motor. (it gained zilch behind a 450hp 396 + 175 shot of gas)
theyve been on the car since 1995

..and a track pass with the pipes corked up (sound quality sucks but give you an idea of how quiet it is)

Cherry bombs and glass packs are the worst mufflers out there nothing says redneck like the cakkley sounds of a cherry bomb or glass pack muffler even the new series of cherry bombs suck!

Ive run flow masters on my cars but on my daily driver got tired of replacing them from rusting out all the time after the second set told them to kiss my a$$ and i run borla on my daily now and magna flows on the hot rod!

Re: Magna-Flow?

A friend of mine had Cherry Bombs on his beautiful Mustang Cobra. A little kid - 9-10 year old pointed to it and told his dad that it sounded like ass. It was hilarious.


Waiting to put this in...

That a&&-sound is highly desirable w/the "NOISE = POWER" crowd & the needy "LOOK-AT-ME" poser groupies.

It's the total Chevelle equivalent of the Import kiddies & their clownish FART CANS.


Even a little 9-10 year-old boy knows!!
