Does a glasspack replace a resonator?

Yes, you can replace a resonator with a glasspack. Although resonators and glasspacks are two different types of mufflers, they provide a similar function in eliminating unwanted noise.

Are shorter or longer glasspack louder?

Are Glasspacks good?

Several people commonly refer to the Glasspack Muffler as the Cherry Bomb Muffler due to its really great sound muffling abilities. These mufflers are also much better than ordinary mufflers, as they do not allow the sound to resonate back into the engine.

What’s the difference between a resonator and a muffler?

Mufflers are used to quiet exhaust volume across all RPMs or revolutions per minute while the resonator prevents unwanted resonance or droning noise which happens within a particular RPM range. These components are part of the total exhaust system and do much more than just quiet sound.

Do resonators have packing?

Like mufflers, resonators come in different styles but commonly use a tube, inside a larger tube along with packing materials. But as opposed to a muffler, a resonator simply TUNES the EXHAUST. It does not necessarily reduce sound and though some do to a much lesser extent than mufflers.

A 12″ glasspack will be much louder then a 20″ glasspack) And the larger the ID of the muffler, the deeper the sound will be.

Are longer glasspacks deeper?
