Thrush Turbo Mufflers

anyone ever had one of them on the 4.3 engine? is it sound good or too quiet?
I have a glasspack on mine and its wore out and sounds like a straight pipe and not good at all. i like the sound. what do y'all think if its ever been used?

  1. I had one on my Chevy Silverado with a 4.3 and it was just kinda loud but didn't sound mellow. I think a nice long tail pipe would have improved the sound a lot, or even duals would have helped.

  2. While you are making up your mind, stuff about 6-8 Steel Wool balls up your tail pipe and drill a hole through the pipe to run a wire across the inside of the pipe.

    It will keep it quiet enough to avoid tickets, BTW: Use course steel wool it will last longer.

  3. i have probably 3 1/2 ft of pipe behind the glasspack. its not welded its just clamped so i can probably reuse it. its not too old yet or no rust either.
    does the thrush turbo muffler sound good though?

  4. that sounds sufficient but the longer the better and duals is way better. If you want a good sounding exhaust, single exhaust isnt gonna do it.

  5. i was told my s10 cant get dual since the gas tank is on the left. one muffler shop told me. they said gas tank being right by edge and blocks me from running pipe back.

  7. well the one i went to were morons. one of them come out trying to tell other person how to weld. he said pipes arent even touching therse a gap.
    i had an adapter connecting 2 pipes together. im going to more reliable one later on

  8. i agree about making it longer, if at all possible, this is your best shot at reducing noise, and a cost effective enough way to do it too
