oh and one other thing...if your just needing a new muffler you could just go with a pacesetter...it sounds about like stock and you can barely hear it so if your just lookin for a new one then you could go with that...ya wouldnt have to worry about it soundin bad cuz you can barely hear it

Check out these Flow's, this is what they put on my YJ. You can check out the sound bite too. I had found a site that had multible mufflers, and sound bites from V-8's to 4 bangors, but I can't seem to find it. I will do some more searching for it.

Just don't presume that because it sounds like a trumpet on a 1.6L honda that it'll sound the same on a 2.5L TJ motor The 2.5l's piston displacement is gonna be the same as a Ford 302/5.0 liter. It'll sound like a 4 cylinder, but a good 4 cylinder (something like you'd hear on 4 cyl baja buggies.... but probably not as aggressive due to the stock cam). The main thing I'd recommend is to make sure there's a bit of exhaust tubing after the muffler - this will preven it from sounding too poppy and give it a bit more of a rumble.

Sounds louder than the clip.........lol.......they put dule exhaust on it, and I have a fuel injected Chevy 350 under the hood. As they told me, every one will know when I am coming through the canyon. I did not want it that loud, but that is what they put on it. Here is a picture of it.
