I'm running TTI headers & 2 1/2" X pipe system w/ Power Sticks chambered mufflers on a warmed over small block. Sounds absolutely vicious at idle, but is very sedate when driven moderately, which I do on occasion.

Thanks to A.P. of CA. for this great movie. His is the black Viper running a pair of 3" x 28" Cobrapack (w/packing) mufflers. Which Viper sounds the best? A very nice gathering of exotic stuff there, with an honorable mention to the Ford GT!

How do you make a V-10 sound good? Powerstick it - listen:

Miscellaneous Sound Library:


From www.corvetteforum.com (May 2012 – Thanks to Eric in Boyington Beach, FL.)

Since installing a set of OBX Stainless side pipes I've been trying to find a set of inserts that flowed well but sounded good at a reasonable volume. I started with the Hooker Max Flows that sounded nice at idle but after that they were super loud and unbearable on the interstate. Second I tried the Hooker regular glass packs (not reverse flow) and they sounded much better volume wise but the tone was just ok but the back pressure was horrible.

I called Eric at Classic Chambered Exhaust and asked about making a set of the VettePack mufflers he makes for C2 cars. He said no problem though he'd never made a set for the hooker styled pipes but was game. A few weeks later they arrived and I started the install.

The design is great and easy to bend the tabs so the inserts slide in with some resistance and no vibration and rattles. The sound is super. They have the right amount of volume and sound great through the rpm. At 70 mph on the interstate you can hear them but still talk to a passenger in my case with the windows down an air conditioned car would have no problem at all. When you get in it or just taking off heavy footed from a light heads will turn cause everyone can hear the sweet music your car will be making.

Happy to say the least and found working with Eric a pleasure. Here is a quick clip. I'll shoot a driving video next and post it.

Sounds great !!! What exhaust/headers do you have ?
That is one fine car, What kind of exhaust do you have on it? It sounds great.

Hi Eric,
I got them installed and am very pleased with the results. The sound is simply awesome. When I first brought it home my neighbors came out of the house to see what was going on! The coolest thing was when my 6 year old daughter was in the backseat for the first time and she said "That's really cool, daddy....can we make it go faster???" As a car nut that made my heart swell! LOL. Here's a video of my car with the 2520SB's on it. It's a real head turner (ear turner? Ha). Love it!!!!
Best Regards, Jac


Many thanks to Joe Ciaravino of NJ for the following movie clips of his trophy-winning 1965 Corvette 327. Joe was instrumental in our development of the breakthrough VettePack Muffler concept. I built a prototype set with 2.5" cores & 3.5" OD body size for Joe's car. Length of the chambered Powerstick is 26" & I used a 16" resonator section. Today's most popular VettePack assembly utilizes 20" of Powerstick, & 20" of sound-absorbing resonator. We hit the sweet spot with this latest design!

Hi Guys,
See attached pic of how I used your chambered exhaust power sticks in fabricating a dual muff system for my '67 Etype 6 cyl. Here is a sound byte of how it sounds. This system has been installed for a good while. I used more clamps than necessary, as I was not sure how it would all sound. I have since welded all but the connections to the rest of my system. Thanks for a great product.

C-2 CORVETTE SIDEPIPE RETROFIT ↓

Retrofit going from stock replacement chambered sidepipes to 2.5” core / 3.5” body VettePack Mufflers (these have 20” long unpacked Powerstick Chambered sections, followed by 20” long resonator sections packed with sound absorbing material). The result will be a noticeably quieter & deeper tone without rasp, & they will also flow better than the stock-type chambered replacement exhaust:

Hi Eric,

Got a new track vid for you to check out of my car at the Z06 Fest Drags last week. Nothing but compliments on the exhaust sound of my car thanks to your Powersticks. Feel free to add it to your website. My friend Dan shot it with his new Sony Hi-Def camera. Let me know what you think.

Thanks, Jim L. Alamosa, CO

Thanks to Mr. M. from the heartland of America for these great movies of his brand new '09 Challenger R/T running a 4, 2.5" Powerstick system. 20" Powersticks ahead of the rear differential, & special 12" Powersticks right at the back of the system. The factory H-pipe was retained. Mr. M. reports a great exhaust note that is very practical for everyday driving.

This is the first new Challenger running Powerstick exhaust!

For those who wanted pics of the single 3" powerstick.

This is with the Banks Monster exhaust pipes(Y-pipe and tail-pipe). Swapped out the Banks muffler with the single 26X3" Powerstick, it was a direct swap.

This is a nice upgrade for those who have purchased the Banks Monster Exhaust system.

Thanks to H. B. from Jacksonville, FLA. for this great movie! His vehicle: 2002 WJ Overland 4.7L H.O V8

I made up my mind and bought 2 Powerstick chambered mufflers from classicchambered.com. Went with the medium length, 2.5" all the way thru...3.5" body. I had them installed on Monday...and I'm really happy with the results...sounds AMAZING!! Cold starts sounds mildy cammed...and the idle is just plain bad...these don't have any drone like the Flowmaster did...from what I understand from drone anyways...just great sound..all thru the powerband...

So without any further adue...here's a little something I put together...enjoy! Ohh...and the video doesn't do it justice...

Thanks to L.B. of Scottsdale, AZ. for this clip. His car is a 1965 Corvette 327/365 HP. Here's his commentary:

I bought a 65 with sidepipes and posted a similar problem a few weeks ago. They were an original repro. of the GM's. Just yesterday (Mon.) I had the chambered portion removed and replaced with a section consisting of 1/2 chambered and 1/2 resonator made by Classic Chambered. ERIC at Classic, said he had never tried this particular combination and hoped it worked. I made an HD video of the before and will be doing one in a few days to show the difference. It may be hard to hear the sound difference on a computer. The sound seems to be reduced in volume by 1/4>1/3 of what it was. It is a lower rumble and they are still louder than most exhausts. The original sound was very annoying and the new sound has a much better tone. When I finish the video I'll post both of them. GOOD LUCK!

Under the stock sidepipe covers reside 3" OD x 40" Powerstick Mufflers (part # 22540-VETTE). Sound is deeper & less raspy, plus flowpath is now 2-1/4" vs. stock @ 1-7/8". BIG flow advantage!

Thanks to David C. from Howell, MI. for the great movies. His car is a 2006 Mustang GT with a high-flow H-pipe & an SLP Loudmouth axleback. 2524SB's were added after the H-pipe for additional tuning.
