Gibson?????????????????

Ok. Here's the question... should I shell out the 230.00 for a Gibson or just buy a regular exaust for my 91 YJ. I want more power and a deeper, louder (no rice can) sound. Are these worth the extra cash? Mine is shot now and I do have the cash. Anyone have one and what have the benefits been. I have a 91 2.5. Thanks for your help! -T

Hey man, I hate to reply to your question, with a question, but I'm looking to buy a YJ and made my mind up I'd only look at I-6's, but I have the opportunity to buy a 95 YJ with only 9,500 original miles on it, but it's the 2.5 L, I don't know whether it would be worth it to have such a new vehicle, or whether I should hold out for a I-6. I know that within 2-3 years, I'd like to swap in a V8, so what's your advice since you own one (2.5L)?

Thanks for the help,
Matt

Just so ya know, I've seen well built 4-Bangers go places the I6ers couldn't make it... Keep in mind, you are getting a Jeep®, not a 69 Camaro... A lot more finesse is required to go wheelin'... Not nessecarily a lot of power... Just my $0.02...

I'm trying to decide the same thing, should I go with a Gibson or get a Flowmaster or what? One of my friends has a Gibson on his XJ and it sounds sweet. Nice and deep, I would love to have it. I think I'll probably go with the Gibson. My header is cracked and I'm getting that replaced so I think I'll go with the Gibson.

I bought gibson for my 4.0. It sounds great and gives a better throttle response. You won't be dissapointed.

just my 2 cents but if you put a v8 in a jeep or what ever, it add quite alot of weight and if your in really deep soft mud and you dont have very big tires(35"+++) and a good lift (6") you'll sink increadibly fast and deep. also when a v8 gets stuck its stuck you need a very big v8 to get it out.
just an comment
