muffler.. magnaflow or flowmaster??

I have a 6cyl. v6 2001 wrangler and was looking for a muffler to put on that would give it a deep rumble sound but would be noticed. I don't want anything that would give me the raspy high pitch crap.. Any suggestions?

I've heard good things about and from the flowmaster 40. I was going to get it done this week until my jeep got a Vehicle Inspection notice on the weekend. perfect timing...

well i took my jeep to maxi and midas today and asked what i should do and they said the flowmster would be louder the the 60 but the 60 would have a better growl yet would be quieter so i was wonderin how much "quiet" was... i assume it would have a deep tone but still be louder than the stock correct?

Either will be louder than stock for sure. I have the flowmaster 40 on mine and like it. I put a magnaflow on my 88 YJ and its not quite as loud butt hat might be the age/condition of the engine

Flowmasters tend to have a more unique sound due to the way they are made. Magnaflow is a fancied up glasspack that will reflect the vehicle's individual output. If its possible to get a "high pitched" sound out of a jeep, I'd be surprised

How is a Magnaflow a fancied up glasspack?I've had both Flowmaster and now the Stainless Magnaflow and it sounds all as good as the Flowmaster behind my stroker?It definitely reflects my Jeeps output!Explain how its glasspacked?

his stroker is not the best example for you because it is gonna sound different no matter what--i only quoted it to get stroker at least three times in a post.

i have heard the flowmaster and the magnaflow on a stock 4.0 I6--which may be different than your V6....the flowmaster gives a deeper more grown up sound than the magnaflow being just a little louder at higher rpms(honda on roids sounding) that i really enjoyed.

I have a Jeep.

What are you talking about with a V6!?You obviously haven't had the them both!The idle and thru the rpm range is pretty much the same.I went with the Magnaflow because it's stainless!

Dear Broseph, I was referring to his original post in which he states he has a V6. I have heard them both and I enjoyed the flowmaster more than the maganflow. I have not; however, heard your beast with a magnaflow on it.

Apologize on the V6 remark, reread! Depending on which 2 your doing the comparison too. I personally went with one that was closest to the Flowmaster I use to have.As far as a stroker sound you can't really tell the difference.Only at idle with the cam a bit and if you have your foot into the throttle it's very noticeable.Extremely happy with the exhaust notes, and the warranty, and that it is stainless!

Sweet a muffler thread!

I have a super 44 welded to the stock system. Very throaty around 1,800rpm, quiets down after that.

V6's have a different sound though so you might want to try a glass pack.
