I've got a 383 Stroker with S&S aluminum headers, and it is my dream to have my car sound exactly like this......

Any suggestions?
Ok- serious suggestion if I may ;)
I don't know what cam you're using but something with a healthy overlap would help for starters. Second is the mufflers.
I know he's not running them, but if you want to accentuate the chevy's pulsing sound during idle, try spintech mufflers.

First I am not knocking Flowmaster products. They have a distinct sound to them and I admit some times I hear a car with Flowmaster mufflers and I like the sound.

Generally though, Flowmasters sound tinny.

I bought a set of Dynomax Super Turbos @ Summit a few years ago that are on my 150 Wagon. To me they sound better then Flowmasters.

That's pretty much what my '74 Blazer sounds like with full length Headers, no balance pipe, 2.5" exhaust and Flowmasters.

What series Flowmasters are you running on the Blazer?

That's kind of ironic because I currently have Dynomax Super Turbos on my 56 and I'm looking to replace them with Flowmasters, most likely the Delta 50's, the Super Turbos are too quiet for me.

If I could get a good sound clip, I'd post what mine sounds like. I am running dual 40 series, 3" 2 chamber Flow Masters with no cross over. I am going to swap over to 3" Dyno Max Bullets in the near future, I want mine louder!! :)

Sputters too much for me, sounds like the engine's about to stall

Are you experiencing a lot of interior drone with your Flowmaster 40 series?

Yes it does sound like the engine is ready to stall...also lots of idle surge...too "blatty" sounding for me.

I have some interior drone with my 40's...even though the car has sound deadening mat...40's are loud...yet I like 'em that way:D
