Need a new exhaust, Don't want a pissed off bumble bee in a cola can sound
So the muffler for my 4.0 TJ is rusting away. Have been looking for an exhaust but cant find any type of replacement that doesn't sound like I'm out of Tokyo Drift. Are there any exhausts that sound close to factory but still give a tad bit of benefits on the pedal?
I like the sound of my gibson exhaust. It's not obnoxiously loud and has a nice deep sound that's barely noticeable at highway speeds. It certainly didn't give me any more power, but I love how it sounds as i work through the gears.
I have a magnaflow clone that is awesome. It's called xlerator muffler and I have 2.5 in/ out and it breaks in really nice. Straight through design with no chambers- fully welded and stainless... For about 35-45$. I paired it with a magnaflow hi flow cat (70$) with 2.5 mandrel bent custom pipe for rear 3 link and it's great. No drone, nice subtle rumble... That's my 2 cents.
Banks is good
Flow masters are loud and resonate especially with turn down. I tried a turn down with magnaflow clone for 2 months and while it sounded cool I got sick of the under cab sound- IMHO it sounds much better with full tail pipe exiting the vehicle. No issues with fumes though- every jeep is different.
