Hi.  I just purchased a very nice, original 1966:  Aqua Mist, Matching deluxe bucket/console interior, 69K miles.  Car is great!  However, it currently has GlassPack mufflers, which are a bit loud.  I have a 1971 Boat Tail GS which has MagnaFlow exhaust, which provides a nice rumble but is more "civilized".  The 1971 has a 455, the 1966 has a 425 - so I am not sure I can predict that the 1966 will sound similar to the 1971.

My question is this:  has anyone installed Magna Flow mufflers on the 425 engine?  Before I spend the money I am trying to figure out what it will sound like.  I am not interested in going back to stock exhaust with resonators and mufflers and giving up the muscle sound completely!

All opinions welcome!  Thanks.

You might get a better answer to your question on the AACA Riv Owners forum, here is a link ...

Buick Riviera - Riviera Owners Association

More 1st generation posts on that forum but there are several members there from every generation.

Good luck,
