Well we got to working around under the cj and somehow wound up knocking the muffler box off. I am happy with the sound but my dad isn't he refuses to let me ride around without it says it's "to loud" I was wondering what would be a good exhaust on a small budget I want beefiness with a good volume but not extremely loud.
Any suggestions are appreciated
This sticker is inconvenient and dangerous, but I do love Fig Neutons
on my jeep, I only used a regular old no name brand muffler as I didnt want to draw too much attention to it, but my truck uses Flowmaster 50's for a nice deep meaty growl. Summit Racing has them for around 100 bucks which isn't too bad a price.
After hearing my buddy's Flowmaster 40 behind a 360, that'll be my next exhaust. I run some version of purple hornies or thrush or something. It's very loud and not in a good way. It has that raspy sound. The Flowmaster has the deeper rumble that I want. Mine annoy me, his just sound cool if that helps lol.
An upper end Dynomax might be what you're looking for if you want something pretty quiet or closer to stock sounding. I would not run glasspacks or cherry bombs if you want something close to quiet. They're cheap though.
I am in the process of an exhaust upgrade for my 304 V8. Scrapping the hooker headers for stock exhaust manifolds. 2.5" pipe from each manifold into a Flowmaster Y Manifold with a 3" outlet. This will lead to a 3" Magnaflow Cat and 3" Flowmaster Off-road 44 muffler. Will post pictures and thoughts when this project is done. I currently have a really bad exhaust leak that sounds horrible and cannot wait to hear the new system!

This is the best sounding exhaust for an inline six IMHO. For an inline six *without* a big cam and lumpy idle it is the BEST note I have ever heard. I like it so much that I ordered an Aero Chamber for my build...if it does not sound the same I will have to get with Shawn to build a matching resonator
In a later post I asked if the engine was stock and Shawn's response was basically yes, a 100K+ mile engine with a leaking rear main and some other issues.

This Flowmaster 80 on a inline six in a Mustang sounds good and I probably would have liked it 15 years ago when I was driving 5.0's and not suffering from Tinnitus and partial hearing loss in my left ear.
I know how you feel with the str8 pipe bug, I had it with my 78 Bronco but have come to the conclusion of cherry bombs, way better throaty rumble instead of the loud cackle and popping. Besides no offense but 6 cylinders with str8s are just flat out stupid and annoying. My friend has a 84 blazer jimmy 2.8 with str8s and it is very annoying!
