    The drone is not to be dismissed. Mine drones bad enough around 50 in overdrive that I basically don't drive it locally anymore. All of the roads are 50 mph and I honestly just can't freaking stand it anymore. Handily the diesel is nearly silent, so I put miles on that.

    It's really bad in the coupe. I'm seriously debating having quieter mufflers put on.

    Just use a different muffler. Chambered mufflers are notorious for drone. Even glasspacks aren't nearly as bad as flowmasters and their knockoffs. Look at Borla, Bassani, etc. I have Moroso spiral-flows that look like a glasspack but just have a spiral baffle inside. Sound pretty beefy and no drone.

    Magnaflows on mine. I added a bunch of sound damper crap to the trunk and it reduced the peak volume, but it made the speed range where its annoying wider.

    maybe I should swap mufflers between the diesel and the Towncar. Towncar would be driveable and the diesel would sound like a bro-dozer.

    Time to let the coal roll!

    I like the quiet muffler on the 90. It’s still fun to have loud exhaust sometimes but most of the time quiet wins. I’m a 32 year old old man.

    Dynomax/Walker 17749; they're large cased mufflers, but they quieted the lopo down to near stock level. With the 351W, I am going to install glasspacks on the tailpipes just in case.

    So...
    I've narrowed this down a little. I'll add to this as I go for future reference. My timeline is to be finished by October next year.

    Haves: 351W unassembled. '73 casting, virgin bore. The temptation to go too deep and make a simple 393 out of is a heavy burden at this point.
    We'll roller-ize this thing and grind a cam to suit my needs.
    AFR 165's Smaller valves.. higher velocity.. more torque.
    75MM BBK throttle body

    Needs: 351 A/C compressor mount
    Swap headers
    H-pipe
    Intake set-up
    Megasquirt rig. (this excites me.. simplicity and quality)
    More tires

    I suggest hitting up a demo derby group to find the a/c bracketry.

    That sounds like a great idea, I never considered that. Those guys probably wouldn’t mind making a few bucks off something that would be worth a fraction of a penny at the scrap yard.
