Cool You guys are crazy if...

You think the LM2's are loud. Ya I know, I'm stock with cats, but this thing is still quiet. I put in the LM2 in place of a large single Flowmaster the PO installed and I thought this thing would really be loud.

I guess most of you haven't owned classic muscle before, cause my radio in my Chevy II is worthless at any RPM over idle and I love it. Wonder what it would sound like if I removed the "muffler" and replaced it with a straight pipe?

IMO, LM1 was always the real loudmouth, while LM2 was the loudmouth for people that actually wanted to have a muffler instead of pretend-mufflers in straight-through piping. Both have their place, just don't fool yourself about what role either one fulfills...

Trust me, I'm loud. True duals, big cam, headers, no cats and no mufflers. I'm louder than all the old school hot rods at the car cruises. Sounds killer. No rasp.

Times 3 or 4 on the LT's and ORY. It's loud. I actually prefer the LM1 over the the LM2. I think it sounds better. The only reason I went with the LM2 was due to getting pulled over and warned about too loud of exhaust a few times and I was just cruising when I was pulled over. I would love to put the LM1 back on.

Add some long tubes, ORY, and get rid of the cats and tell us if you can still hear that radio

Lmao wel ther is your 1st problem.... Your comparing old school muscle(true DUALS) with our FBodies(Ypipe)

Apparently you have not been reading. The consensus is the LMI/II is fine on stock/near stock cars. Even LT/ORY's it is not so much the volume that is the issue, it is the abhorrently shitty rasp from 2300-3000 rpm. Sounds like the car has spent too much time at the TAco Bell drive through. I can speak to this subject very well. Had LMI with stock exhaust/Stock Manifolds and ORY/LT's and ORY, and traded the LMI out for duals inside of 2 months.

Methinks we are not the crazy ones.
