POS exhuast

I have been having major problems with my exhaust. The previous owner put a gibson cat back on, and the thing has never worked right. I have had to tighten the clamps and adjust it 20 times. It rattles terribly, so for now, i ripped from the muffler back off. It doesn't rattle as much, but now it sounds like a civic, and drones real bad.

Is there a nicer exhaust system out there. I want it to sound as good as a 4.0 can, while fitting nice and snug. Any suggestions?

hit up your local muffler shop and have them bend up a new exhaust from the cat-back.... no more clamps, no more leaks, no more worries if you liked your old muffler use it again or buy another like it.... i like the oem sound... quiet

another option is red rtv...put the old exhaust back on and use that it will and should keep it from rattling loose

you can also go to the parts store and buy pre-bent exhaust from the muffler back for about $24... They will have to order it but it usually arrives in 2 days or less.

Or you can put in the Gibson and have it welded rather than clamped

You can buy a new downpipe from quadratec. I run a flowmaster and it sounds pretty darn good as long as you run a cat. Otherwise it is somewhat loud and annoying.

thanks for the ideas. I was thinking about welding them all together, but taking it out again might be a *****. Is the stock exhaust one piece? Oh and i remember reading about a tj style down pipe that is more out of the way. Is it an actual tj pipe, or a custom one?
