Black Widow exhaust?
« on: April 26, 2021, 08:59:53 AM »
I wanted to get some feedback from anyone who has used Black Widow exhaust.  I purchased a set of Venom 250 mufflers for my Cuda and they are on their way.  I am wondering if I should have gone with the Race Venom instead for some extra sound.  A neighbor has them on his 70 Chevelle and they sound great but he痴 got a big block car.

Currently, I have Magnaflows and I知 not very impressed (they were on the car when I got them). My car is a numbers matching stock 360 and I壇 prefer to keep the exhaust manifolds for originality.  Any input is appreciated.

Nobody?  Well, I guess I知 going to be the guinea pig for this test. Here痴 a couple shots of the mufflers. I値l take some video with the Magnaflow and then after the Black Widows are installed. Wish me luck.  :fingerscrossed:

Never heard of these guys but looking at that picture, any muffler you can see through, even at an angle, is going to be loud. If this is their quiet version, I have to wonder what the race version would sound like.

I do seem to recall some testing back about 10 years ago where a set of Flowmasters  created more cfm and horsepower than an set of open headers and did it with a much lower decible level than  many other competitors. I forget the specific Flowmaster part number, but I'm sure its out there on teh interwebs someplace.

Looking forward to seeing you follow up.

Engine compression ratio makes a difference in exhaust notes, especially at idle. Post a video when done.

My car is a numbers matching 360 car. I知 not expecting it to sound like a pro touring car with 500 hp and an aggressive cam. I just hate the way the Magnaflow sounds and I wanted something different from Flowmaster. I値l do a video before and after but I知 going into this a little blind.

Got the new mufflers installed today. Personally, I think they sound way better. For reference, my car is a numbers matching 360 with exhaust manifolds. From there it is a 2.5 inch true dual system. The car had magnaflow mufflers.  I don稚 know the model number but they were 14 long. I installed the Black Widow Venom 250 which is also a 14 case. The car now has more of a flowmaster type sound. I致e had them on the city streets and freeway. There is a slight drone from 48-52 mph but not anywhere else. Overall, I知 very happy with them.

I tried to upload before and after videos but I was not allowed to. If anyone is interested in these mufflers and wants to hear them, I can email them upon request.

May be you need to have enough posts in order to add a video link? Which part of NCal are you in? May be I run into you some day if any of the car shows ever happen this year.

BTW, I am sure you are aware of the exhaust law in CA so be careful when open up the throttle. I find it more cops working on Saturday than on Sunday in my area. It is more headache than before because it is no longer just a fixer ticket.

I知 between SF and Sacramento. I致e seen a couple random shows pop up and there痴 one in Winters tomorrow (5/1) but I知 not sure I値l make it. I知 not worried about any new exhaust laws for my car. Those are generally focused on modern cars running basically open exhaust (hellcat owners, I知 looking at you).
