I have my glasspack running without a tailpipe at all and it is LOUD. I hate it, driving at 2100 rpm's down the highway for 5 min is enough to make your ears bleed. Forget hearing your music or talking to someone else in the car. THe only pro is it covers up all the rattling. LOL....... Ive only had mine for a 3 months and have been looking to get something new for the last 2 1/2.

Just to clarify, are we going for pure volume, like the annoying "bap bap baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" the ricers are going for, or an aggressive growl "rumble rumble rooooooooaaaaaaaaar!" like a muscle car?

(Wow, I feel like a 12 year old)

Dang I haven't run glass packs since the 80's . If glass packs are like they were back then, they get louder after you run them for a while. I wouldn't do anything to it yet.
I've also heard you get it hot and squrit water in it to make it louder.
