Needing suggestions for a new cat and muffler?
So finally my budget has evened out and my savings account is healthy so I'm wanting to do something to my Jeep that I wanted to do since day 1, let it breathe a little easier and have a bit better sound (I don't want annoyingly loud fart cannon exhaust!).
I've done some looking around and from the forum posts I've looked through it seems most people agree that the stock piping isn't worth replacing, a lot don't bother changing the manifold either, and that the main thing restricting the exhaust is the cat. I've never replaced a cat with an aftermarket one and being the one major thing that decides weather or not I can pass my emissions test I'd like to get a lot of opinions and real world experience people to suggest a good one to get along with how I'm going to have to install it. I would like to get something bolt in but from a quick peak under my Jeep after pulling in to work this morning it looks like all of the exhaust is one piece, so I'm assuming I'm going to have to cut it out? I know how to weld, very basic at least, but do not have a welder, so if it's not bolt in it will have to be clamped in.
And finally as I said I want a new muffler too, I'm looking for a glass pack for the free flow and YouTube let me hear a lot of good sounding 4.0s with them installed so I'm convinced it'll be good, but I'm still open to suggestions on what to get/look for in a muffler. As I said earlier I don't want this sounding like one of those fart cannons on the interstate, I just want it to have that deeper more open sound that you can still stand next to the tail pipe and have a conversation.
