YUCK!

Supertrapps have a distinctive sound to them, becuase of the baffling, and I personally dont like it, and I think they look extra cheezy.

And if anyone knows cheezy, it's Dave


Seriously, I love the look of traps, but only if done correctly.

The only way I think they look good is if you exit the pipes, at an angle, before the rear wheels. It's also important that you use the anodized Traps. Stainless looks cheap, but the black gives it sort of a 'rough' look.

SOmeone just posted shotsof their car with new exhaust &stance. I belive it was AdamLyn (green car?) The exhaust is exactly they way I envision it coming out, but with black Traps.

As for sound, find a local SCCA event where they have vintage V8 cars running (idealy Vettes). A built 350 with traps sounds like nothing you've ever heard.

Brad,not to sound like a jerk,buy why? I heard a set once on a Grand National that ran low 11's,and they sounded pretty "silly"..reminded me of a motorcycle muffler.Ahhh..Supertraps and Predator carbs

All joking aside,there's plenty of great sounding mufflers out there..my personal favs are the 3 chamber Flowmasters and the Dynomax Super Turbos.

But a Grand National is a 6 cylinder...any kind of muffler would have sounded silly.

We used them on the circle track cars a few year back. Thats the kind of racing you do when you get smart enough to turn left!!
. They are Okay , but I would not use them on a street car. You can change the tone of the exhaust by adding or subtracting the plates but they always seem to rattle at an idle.We have not used them for a few years but if I remember correctly, they get louder the more plates you put in, as there is more holes for the exhaust to escape from.

(in my best Italian accent voice) "whadda you,a wise guy or somethin?


A friend of mine has a turbo T-Type with Flowmasters,and for a 6 cylider,it sounded OK.
But the GN with the Supertrapps,now that sounded like crap.
