Thanks, sounds great, but I cannot afford much more than I've already paid. My car was very cheap, so I really can't justify paying much more than $100 for any more exhaust mods or repairs...

I was told that spraying cold water on a glasspack speeds up the breaking in process, but I find that kind of doubtful.

So the engine may not sound good, but what I really need to know is if I can...

Glasspack+Muffler delete sounds terrible, advice needed lol

So I just had the mufflers removed and replaced with pipes, and a cherry bomb to replace the resonator. 2000 SS. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound even remotely like the one in the video I watched on...

Thanks for your reply!

The shop I'm going to doesn't carry Cherry Bombs, so I'll need to buy it myself. Do I need the straight neck, or a header? I'm not familiar with the exhaust system on this...

Resonator swap + Muffler delete questions

Hi guys,

I decided that I will try swapping the stock resonator for a Cherry Bomb glasspack, and removing the mufflers. I've watched the videos and I like this sound the best (for the price). I...

Cool New headlights make a big difference! (Before vs After)

Old headlights were getting hazed over, so I thought I'd try and sand them clear again. After a couple hours, I realized that the pitting was deep enough that there wasn't much I could do. Might as...

Thanks for your reply!

They have a few, but a pretty poor selection of rims when you only consider the few 16x6.5 ones they show.

Does anyone know of an auto parts store or specialized rim...

Thanks! I'm thinking about doing a muffler delete or performance muffler, and then maybe seat covers for the back row. Wheels are a great idea! I'll have to look into that.

Muffler Delete or Aftermarket Muffler?

Hello,

I'd like to do a muffler mod on my 2000 Monte Carlo SS. I've seen videos of Montes with a muffler delete and some with Flowmaster exhausts. Just a bit about my circumstances, I don't need...

Hood Emblem

Hi.
