Its a stock,62,000 mile 283.
I put (replaced existing headers)shortys on there,and a 2.5 stainless exhaust from pypes,with their street pro mufflers.
Sounds like a race car,but is not.
Im wondering,if I buy stock walkers or something from rockauto,will that be the ticket to make it quieter without changing anything else?
What do you think?

It will be quieter....but probably not as quiet as the OE system. Replacement mufflers almost never are due to cost issues.

Cast manifolds would quiet it down some over the shortys...they tend to damp sound waves. A crossover pipe would help. If you have room for a bigger muffler over the stock size, use it. I am guessing that you have full length tailpipes....if not, that's the first place to start.

Tailpipe resonators might help, but sometimes they sound weird.

I have a couple magnaflow mufflers (12246) on the 66 elky, it's very quiet at idle and still pretty quiet going down the road. Stock '04 5.3 but with manifolds.

Put smoke stacks on it. Just remember to mount them behind the doors so you don't have to climb through the windows.

Go to your local muffler shop and ask them to put you on some 'turbos'......, they were the hot ticket years ago before flow~disaters hit the scene.....and not nearly as loud.
