2007 Charger R/T muffler delete interior sound
A few people have asked for interior sound of my charger with a deleted or
removed muffler but resonators were kept on. Here it is, sorry it took so
long. Only other modification is a cold air intake that I made by basically
removing the filter box and sticking a cone filter in its place at the end
of the intake tubing.
69 Buick GS 350-4 barrel
This is my bone stock, save for the demon carb( it is an original four
barrel motor though) 69 GS 350, factory manifolds without mufflers because
i'm installing headers very soon, with purple hornie glasspacks:D can you
say irritated neighbours? I'm going to get the T/A manifold for it along
with some 3.91 gears (it has a chevy 12 bolt posi) and maybe a cam, the
aforementioned stuff with the longtube headers should be a pretty peppy
car, these old buick 350's make a lot of torque, the way it is now it will
easily brake both tires loose and melt them during a brakestand, with the
open manifolds it will even lay a couple of 20 foot long strips just
stompin on the gas, not bad for a stock converter, stock 3.30 gears and
3600 pound car, this paticular motor was rated at 285 hp (net) and 360
ft-lbs of torque from the factory, and I believe they had 10:1 compression.
The buick 350 actually has a longer stroke than a chevy 396 big block it's
3.85", this makes for Alot of down low go, and a good starting point.
