Post mufflers

I have an 85 CJ-7 that I swapped a 350 into. I am currently running wide open Hooker super competion headers. One of them finally rusted through and I am looking to get the fenderwell Heddmen HTC headers and the mufflers that come with them from 4wd Hardware. I was wondering how loud these mufflers are. I want something that sounds GOOD. I realize it wont sound as good as wide open headers, but that's what mufflers are for. Thanks


85 CJ-7. 79 vette 350 conversion. 4.56 gears. Lockers. 4" Explorer Pro Comp suspension, 3" body lift. 38" Super Swamper TSL's. Looking to go SOA and take off the body lift.

Tell you what. Get three-chambered Borla mufflers. It will give you a very deep mellow powerful tone.

Both will give good tone, the Borla sounding a little more muffled but heavier than the Flowmaster.

Are you 100% sure? I know a major gear head whose car has what he is sure of are 3-chambered Borlas. Where'd did you hear your info.? Not saying you're wrong or anything, but I'm just curious.

Also, how would they measure the tone differences with mesh such as single chambered mufflers being quite loud and 3 chambered ones being mellow and deep.

Never had I ever heard of Borla making a chambered style muffler like the Flowmasters. I've double checked Borla's website and a couple of other auto enthusiast buddies of mine. Neither the website or my budies indicated of any chambers in a Borla. They may be in the muffler, however, Borla does not use them as the main source of muffling ability.

The case size of the muffler, the diameter of the inner tubes, whether the muffler is straight through or a triple pass design as well as the density of the packing will all have an overall effect on the tone. Generally larger case mufflers are lower toned (quieter), larger dameter tubes are louder, denser packe mufflers are quieter as are triple pass designs.

Ok, that makes a bit more sense. Maybe he was just generally thinking 3-chambers=quieter more muffled sound.
