Default Need Help On Exhaust Muffler Choice

SLP loud Mouths Vs Race bullets
Which exhaust will be louder and retain a better tone. lets say both cars (Internally Stock Single Cam 5.0's), have headers (long or short), with an o/r X or H pipe with either Dyno Max Race bullets or SLP LM1 resonator dumped at the rear axle.

I was wondering because just saw some videos of 5.0 foxbodys using SLP LM1's and it blew me away. I want to know how do race bullets compare, so I would like certain characteristics of each muffler . Here are two videos, in the 1st video the car has complete intake w/BBK longtubes and o/r x pipe. 2nd video has BBK Shorty Headers and BBK o/r H. Both cars have SLP LM1's and I belive they are stock.

Side Note: How close do the car's in these video sound too real life?

Get the SLP Loud Mouth. I tried a race bullet, and it sounds like it has a hole in the muffler it's not what you are looking for.

sidenote: From past experience don't take youtube for a good source. The camera is right up on the exhaust and can make any exhaust sound loud.

How loud was your car, what was your exhaust setup, was your engine built, and what car was it?

I used Youtube for research when buying exhausts for both my vehicles. Since not all the videos have the camera close to the exhaust, that really isn't an issue. Just find the same vehicle you have, with as close to the same mods you have, and listen to a bunch of different videos. At the least you can rule out some exhausts. There should be hundreds if not thousands of 5.0 vids.


"Better" is 100% relative to the individual. Overall I'm a fan of Magnaflow, and I have them on both vehicles, but there are other exhausts I like also. SLP is very popular on late model GTOs like mine, but that doesn't mean they will sound the same on your car.

Both will be extremely loud. You might like it at first but get tired of it pretty quickly.

If the motor is basically stock you will see very little benifit in going to either one of these muffles. A decent pair of 2-1/2 magnaflows will work fine to about 400hp and you'll be able to talk inside the car.

I cant say on the SLP exhaust.

The race bullets, presuming you're referring to the Dynomax race bullets, from what I've heard, only take the edge off of the sound of open headers, and are designed for race classes that require a muffler.
