WranglerHawg A guy that lives down the street from me has a Gibson, and it sounds pretty good, crisp sounding. Also, i know a guy that runs a flowmaster on his jeep, and i think it sounds awful, like someone said earlier, flowmasters sound great on V8s, but i think they try to produce to much sound out of something that isnt meant to be loud, like an I6. But hey, its all in what you want, right?

keithpeindl Well no matter what I will struggle for a good sound cause mine is a 2.5. Just looking for something that sounds decent but gives more flow for the highway driving and helps with pickup. I had a Flowmaster 40 series on my old Tacoma v-6 and it sounded awesome! I was going to go with one again but really liked the look of the side exit. Anyways I got some time to go. Have to make some extra cash first.

BTW I own a sign shop. We make vinyl signs and car grapics and all that good stuff. Let me know if you guys need anything!!!

Borla, Magnaflow, and Gibson sound good because its a more refined sound as you pointed out. You still get the I-6 gurgle without the popping and cracking that the Flowmaster gives you.

BigJeep-
If you want noise, get a freakin glass pack.
did i ever say i wanted more noise?! i just said it has more rumble...glass packs sound like freakin crap on a I-6...and you obviously haven't heard my jeep because it sounds freakin mean!!!!!...my buddy has a magnaflow on his rubicon and it sure beats that crap!!!

mrbigjeep i don't like borla that much because it sounds more like a luxury sports car than a mean offroad jeep...sounds like what would be on a BMW or one of those Mazda RX-8's...flowmaster has more of mean RUMBLE...borlas DO NOT rumble...its a sporty sports car sound
08-31-2006 09:11 AM
stainless Gibson and Borla sound the same to me, nice deep sound, not like a flowmaster.

I have horrible luck with tailpipes...no matter where they exit. If they are under the back, i smash them flat on a rock. If the turn out behind the tire, i manage to bend them on a rock till they come straight out the back, then smash them on a rock.
I personally like the idea of a simple turn down just behind the rear axle housing, tucked away from the trail hazards.

jeeperman Don't have experience with the Gibson side exhaust, but I have had buddies that had side exit exhaust. They installed them to stop smashing their tailpipes flat in the rear... I don't think you will notice a significantly different sound from that than most other freeflowing exhausts.
08-30-2006 09:35 PM
mrbigjeep i don't think its gonna sound much different (if any different) if it comes out the side rather than straight out...i thought i had just read somewhere about a jeep with a gibson...maybe it was on this forum...i can't remember...but i have flowmaster and love it! it sounds great

Anyone Have/ Heard the Gibson Side Exit Exhaust?

I was looking around on ebay for cat back exhaust kits and really like the Gibson Side exit. I just like having the exhaust come out the side... definetly different. Just wondering if anyone here has it or has heard one running.
