When I do mine, I'm planning to do the same setup as WJOverland, except with a Flowmaster 70 series (should sound about the same as a 50, but closer to stock in volume).

And why is it that in every exhaust clip, they sit there revving the piss out of a stone cold engine? They almost never do it warmed up, as indicated by the copious amounts of steam and water coming from the pipes.

The best exhaust I've ever heard is the stock niner. Louder <> better.

The stock niner exhaust sounds pretty badass. I get disapproving looks from (mostly female) pedestrians all the time, and have gotten a few compliments while driving around with the windows open. That's why I'm going with the Flowmaster 70, it should be somewhat similar.

Louder can sound better, but doesn't always. It depends on the size of the engine and the cat/muffler/pipe setup.

I had an FM70 and it can't compare with the stock niner exhaust. With the Edelbrock headers and 3" piping, it was outright obnoxious. I hated it.

Obnoxious in what way? Louder? What cat were you running?

It really is too bad the stock 5.9 muffler doesn't come in a 3" version The sound is a good match for the vehicle.

Magnaflow cat. Loud, and not a purring like niner or a Mustang GT. A slapping loud sound so to speak. Hard to describe. Glad it's gone.

I got a Thrush Welded. The sound is okay, but it drones at in-town speeds. Price is right on amazon!

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I wish Bassani made a cat-back like Ive got my 03 Mustang GT, its perfect. Mild, barely noticeable idle, smooth revs, and no drone at 85mph. But, you know immediatly on takeoff that it aint no stock system.

do what i did when i couldnt afford to replace my muffler, put a downturn right in front of where the muffler goes and pull off the muffler/tailpipe. it sounds great and projects the sound really good, just a little annoying on the interstate. dont weld it on there, just clamp it, you can always take it off and return to the muffler set up

How about a Super 44 on a 4.0? I love loud. Any one know how it would sound?

I've got a Flowmaster Super 44 OFFROAD (thicker diamond plate casing) and I love it. Nice and throaty when I'm on the gass, pretty quiet when cruising on the highway.

My old Flowmaster 40 died after I dented in teh bottom, thats why I went with the OR version on the new one. The 44 is less droan prone than the old 40 series too.
