So, I just installed my new 2.25" Sweet Thunder inserts into my XS Power side pipes. The glasspack inserts that came with the system were too quiet for my taste, and too restrictive for my motor. So, I decided to swap them. Unfortunately, although the pipes were only a few months old with only 500miles on them, the glasspacks were IMPOSSIBLE (at least for me) to get out. Luckily, Josh at Custom Image was able to help me out and got the old inserts out for me.

Anyways, Im very happy with the sound of the Sweet Thunders. I was initially worried that theyd be too loud but theyre not at all (although I could be a little biased seeing I ran the car with open headers for a little while, while waiting for the side pipes to return... so nothing really sounds that loud anymore :devil:) But honestly, they sound great. In my opinion, they are the perfect amount of loud that these cars should be and they have a badass rumble!

Here are some clips:

Before (Hooker style glasspacks):



After (2.25" Sweet Thunder inserts):



And just for fun (WARNING this was shot on my cell phone, and the open headers overwhelmed it a bit! lol):

Thanks! I wasnt sure if I wanted to go with STS or Sweet Thunder, but Im definitely happy with my decision. I do really like the STS as well, but I wanted something really aggressive. Plus the price of the Sweets was much better.:thumbsup:

How hard were the Sweet Thunders to install in the Hookers? I just put Hookers and side pipes on my 81.
The side pipes have baffles in them. I'm not sure about
how to remove the baffles but I guess it can't be that hard. I was going to leave them alone but I like the sound of yours.
