They have to be better than open headers I have now.

exactly. If these sound nice, then maybe i might play with one for the jeep as well, though IMO it is hard to make the straight 6 really sound good.

loud is not an issue as i run open headers currently, talk about LOUD. the goal is quieter than that, but not really going for any certain sound level.

Throttle body 350.

Finally got the headers fully built and installed tuesday. and mufflers WILL be going on this weekend. Either saturday or sunday, there will be a sound clip of it.

even with just the headers i built, it has a much more Crisp sound to the motor, so i really can't wait to see what it will sounds like with the mufflers on there.

got it done today.

initial reaction is i like it. definitely better than open headers. the sound is a bit raspier than ideal, but turned out better than expected however.

Sounds good to bad you don't have a Flowmaster laying around to compare it to.
