I think I would rather try Imco Gatlin slip ins, but the price hurts.Has anyone ever clamped or welded a set of Gibson bullet or similar muffler to a set of open over transom headers? If so can you post pics?
Great insert forn the the price, if they pass your LEO. But they aren't exactely the best at reducing DBsBassett Racing makes a nice stainless muffler that fit in the collector, held in with one 1/4" bolt, have to be lighter an add on Gibson. Any reason your leaning toward the Gibsons?
Now that Bubbletop has gotten trying to kick my nuts in out of the way, yes I did post a 5" insert muffler. And they make something like what your talking about. I don't think this exact thing will work for you, but you get the idea.Is this new? I could get a 4" to 5" adapter? or buy new headers?
I have run inserts before and they just don’t come close tobeing legal in my state. Trying to avoid being hassled or getting a ticket. On the other hand I want it to look nice too and keep a much hp as possible.

If it wasn't so sad, this wood oalmost be comical. How come Sarge gets it?No ball kicking here but I think what GN-7 posted are thru transom shot guns with a slip in muffler! I have a set of slip in mufflers for a Basset 4" collector collecting dust in my garage which I take to parker to stop the leo hassle! I love elsinore, no noise restrictions at all! That came from the local water cop as he was writing me for coming out of the cove alittle early and hot on the peddle. My fault 100% Mark
Back when top level NHRA pro stock cars were running around 7.0's, I drove a "wanna be" PS car that ran 7.50's long enough to get a license. That car had the Borla collector mufflers and like BP's example, at idle up to a few thousand RPM, pretty quiet. On the chip or WOT, didn't seem that much quieter than without mufflers. Outside the car, it seemed to have a different tone, but wasn't much quieter.....at idle up to about 3000 rpm, it's much quieter than anything else. basset inserts don't even come close. quiet might not be the right word - but much more mellow and toned down, like a couple glasspacks in the old days. but going down the track, they "seem" almost as loud as open exhaust..
That's what I have. They took a good bit of the bark out of the motor. 13.5:1 with 27x 28x at .050 over .720 lift definately sounded good before but I wanted to be legal wherever I decide to go.
Cool, thanks for the reply. Do you have a pic?...curious how you attached and what the overall look is. Last time out (fall) I hit a new lake and every one was complimentary but also heard the comment "your pretty loud" more than once. Looking at heading off the noise issue before going back.That's what I have.
