dollar for dollar the best upgrade you can do for power and effiecency would be exhaust. either headers and free flow system or one or the other depending on your emissions laws. good luck

figure 10 percent gain by free flow exhaust. yes weld in a bung and your good. make it in the collector as the o2 needs to get hot before it reads a signal. if your putting out the stock 175 horse range then your gonna get around 17hp.

Allright, First question. Do you have to pass smog? If not, great.

Cheapest but effective:

Summit headers, stock pipes, switch out the mufflers with a 30 , 40 or 50 series flowmaster. Good sound and should accomplish what you want.

Glasspacks are worthless and will rust away after about one winter.

THey are worthless, I've had one on my car for about 2 years now but it hasn't rusted away yet. I think its all burnt up tho because it doesn't sound the same anymore. Oh well, I'm to lazy to take it off ;D

I don't know about glass packs being restrictive. They are a straight through design, with things sticking out to catch some of the exhaust. Race glasspacks don't have much of anything there to catch the exhaust to pull it up into the fiberglass. My truck has at least 6 years on a glass pack and never rusted out. I think its alumunized or stainless. Also has more power then stock muffler. If it you want it fairly loud and are running converters then i say just go no mufflers at all.

Get a couple of flowmaster 40 series on there and that will be probably the loudest thing next to open headers.
