Loudest Exhaust

I've got an '88 Cherokee I6 and I just put a new intake on it, along with a 58mm throttle body and spacer and pacesetter headers. Now I want to finish it off with a high flow cat and a good exhaust. I want something LOUD, I've heard that the flowmaster 40 series is really good. I don't want something though that's really ricey like a 2-cycle weedwacker, I've heard some like that and they're horrible. Right now my exhaust is nice and loud but that's just because I have yet to install a new gasket on the cat muffler joint where it's leaking bad. Any suggestions???

Put a magnaflow cat on with a thrush muffler. About 60 bucks for both, a tailpipe and you are set. I have the thrush, great ground clearence and cheep. It gives you a good sound also.

91XJ- NP231, 31x10.5 MTR's, 15x8 soft 8's, BB, K&N intake, Cherry bomb exaust, CB, Stereo mods, fog lights, custom Aluminum body work to cover rust.

Rember: If they dont find you handsome, at least they will find you handy!

Just cut the exhaust off past the cat.

I don't do Jeeps, but i'm here to help.

Remember, anywhere a car can go a 4x can go, only slower and more deliberately. The ONLY advantage of a 4x is to be able to go where the car can't.

in my opinion, you're not going to get a good loud sound of a 6cyl. I've had flowmasters, glasspacks, and custom exhausts on my 6 cyls, and they've all left quite a bit to be desired. If you want loud and quality sound, get a V8. Or just go to open headers. What's the point of a loud exhaust anyways. . . you are advertising your engine correct? Why would you want anyone to know you had a 6cyl you were trying to make sound like an 8 If you've got a fast truck/car, keep it quiet. Then when you blow 'em off the line, it'll stop and make them think

I personally like the sound of the Borla Header with Randon Cat and Borla catback.

I say take a 3" hole saw and route the header pipe right up through the floorboardin front of the drivers seat. Get all the noise and get high off of the fumes in the process

From what everyone had said it looks like my best bet is to just get a highflow cat and a 40 or 50 series. That sounds good to me. What I'm wondering now is weather to have it go out the back or just a shoty little pipe off the end of the cat. IE no muffler. Any thoughts?

I'd personally go with a Carsound Cat and a Flowmaster 50 Series and have it go straight out the back.
