Depends on what motor you have but I installed a flow on a 4 cylinder with single in dual out and ran the tail pipes in fromt of the tires and it sounds better then most,deep idel and stays like that till around 3500 rpm's then starts to get a little loud.

Don't forget about the cherry bomb convertor

how much did that setup cost ya. i'm kinda interested in doing something similar when the dolla bills ain't so tight. is there any noticable difference performance-wise, or just mainly in sound?

You need a 3 inch body lift so you can run the tail over the frame and out in front of the wheels,price depends on what route you want to go,its hard to run the exhaust this way with the factory cat,you can get a high flow,cut it off,or have the factory moved closer to the engine for the room to run the pipes this way.A high flow cat is 89.95,flowmaster is 79.95 and the tail pipes will very with each shop sence it has to be cutome bent pipes.Had about 275.00 in the setup.Some HP gain but more noise then anything.

Awesome

I have a 40 series delta flowon my 4.0, and I think it sounds awesome...a lot of people ask me if I have a V8 under the hood!!! I dont have a catalytic converter, but I don't think that would change the sound.....I had a 50 series delta on my Rubicon, but I wanted something a little louder for this beast. It isn't tooo loud though, I think its just right....go for it

i put on a flowmaster super delta 50, and it's nice. not too loud (especially inside), and sounds decent outside (my wife thought i had a hole in my muffler, if that gives you any indication). don't think it's quite as loud as the regular delta 50, but with my soft top, it's just right. bought it off e-bay for about $70.

It will sound great. I have the 2 chamber, not the 3 that they will tell you to get. V-Force is a good spin off though for even less money.

I always hear bout guys going with flow masters in my area (lots and LOTS of Z-71's) Some get new headers and stuff. If i wanted to run 40 series on my stock yj, would i need new headers? About how much do they cost also?

no you would not need new headers. I just got a 40 series on my 4banger and it sounds pretty good. I was going to put a new set of heads on ther ebut decided it would probably be a waist.

If he is in the exhaust changing mood he might as well before his stock manifold cracks like they all do around 60-70k miles (well most of them, all that Ive seen or heard of)

Did you do a v8 swap, im only asking because you dont have any info in your sig and you said "heads" leaving me to wonder where the other one would go?
