Great topic... I hope more folks weigh in with suggestions.
I have factory exhaust, but would like to upgrade. I've had flowmasters before on other vehicles, but I want something deep sounding that doesn't scream "CHEAP" or "HIGH SCHOOL" when I drive by... ya know?
The magnaflow has a great tone. It's nice and deep not loud and annoying. It will sometimes drone a little with the doors off but that may be because I am running a turn down tip right off the muffler.
I've got a Magnaflow, 4" High Flow Cat and Banks torque tube headers and it sounds gnarly but not obnoxious or cheap, in the bush in low gear it's wicked. I have heard the flowmaster 50 series mufflers,they are deep toned but I've only heard them on V8's.
I have a MBRP exhaust and love it. It is quiet on the highway and was relatively cheap
4 liter in line six, Bestop Highrock bumpers, Warn winch, light guards, grill guard, Westin running boards, Dick Cepec DC-1's on 33" Mickey Thompson MTZ's, pocket style fender flares, d-rings, hard top, tinted windows, a completely redone sound system with Alpine Type S in rollbar, Arc speakers in the dash and an Alpine headunit, Iggee's seat covers, 3" suspension lift, MBRP Exhaust System, IPF fog lights, steering stabilizers, a woofer, 12" ported Rockford Fosgate subwoofer and amp.
Your not gonna notice any gain in hp. Best this is just get a muffler welded in. Gonna be the same sound for around $150.
Ive gone that course before and yeah it's not a bad idea but... I would like to do the whole thing.
So do you guys know the difference between ss and regular? I'm assuming ss means like super street or something but I dont know. It's in my 4wd.com magazine. Please help! I need to make a decision by tomorrow.
maybe, but I talked to the guy at 4wd.com (it's in the magazine and it says it's exclusive to 4wd.com). He said the ONLY difference is that the cheaper one (ss) is made out of lesser quality material. He made a comparison of "if you get the more expensive one it's like your buying a nice luxury car, and if you get the cheaper one it's like you are buying a jeep." Despite how much I disagree with his comparison (jeeps are better than luxury cars IMO) he said that they are EXACTLY the same and he said "don't worry about it breaking on you, It's just that it could break easier than the expensive one". I asked him about sound quality, all the parts, the size, pretty much everything I could think of. HE SAID IT WOULD BE EXACTLY THE SAME JUST WORSE QUALITY MATERIAL. Now, I did order it (im on a strict budget and I need to make a decision quickly due to the giant hole in my exhaust), and this might be the wrong time to ask , but what to you guys think?
