G'day,
Has anyone used hooker aerochamber mufflers on there 5.0 litre v8s? I am thinking of using them in a twin 2 1/4 inch system on an EB. First of all, are they any good? How much do they roughly cost and where can you get them from? Ive went to a couple exhaust shops and they had no idea.

Haha, funny you say that.

Im running a full twin 2 1/4" mandrel bent s/steel system on my ute with two Hooker Aerochamber mufflers and no resonators etc.

IMO, and many others, it sounds awesome. Very distinct note, yet very quiet while cruising, but once you put the boot into it it really opens up.
If you want to make abit more noise i'd suggest 2 1/2" pipes with Hooker Mufflers.

Heres a sound clip of it making some noise on the dyno.

i've a single 2 1/2" one with no resonator on a stock exhaust, has a great note through the whole rev range. cost me just over $100 for muffler at super plus in melb.
will be upgrading to a single 3" system with hi flo cat's & hooker muffler at the same time as my top end "make over/ rebuild" before the year is out.

what would they sound like on a 6cyl in comparison to a Lukey or Redback muffler? i need a new muffler and was looking at trying something different, either one of these or a Flowmaster muffler.
