thanks man.. what do u mean straight pipe it.. i kninda know what u mean but u mean just have a pipe straight all the way back?? that would be soo loud huh??
I have my XJ straight piped all the way back.. Its not loud to me, but if you like the skinny pedal then it might be a different story It sounds really good. way better than a 300-500 dollar exhaust. $500 exhaust vs. $15 straight pipe and if you dont know how to weld $25 at a muffler shop. For the price, you cant beat it lol

I just put a flowtech raptor under my XJ. $24 at Advanced Auto. the PO had hacked the exhaust system to stop after the catalytic converter, I welded the new muffler in and put a turn down on it for now. Sounds gooood... If you dont know how to weld, try and find a performance shop. The Muffler shops around here will do a single cat-back exhaust system for $150, includes muffler, pipe, and labor.
