Yeah, I gotta agree with you. A little louder at start up, or idle at a light, but it doesn't seem much louder than stock. I have about 500 miles on mine. Smelled a bit during burn in, but part of that time was when Just the bikini top of my trek top nx was on. For ~$60 after rebate, I thought it was a great price to replace my rusty eom part (after 104k miles).

The Dynomax definitely drone and rumble at idle which is not what I wanted on my Wrangler (though for 60 bucks are on for life now lol).

SirGeorgeKillian I also have the Magnaflow. It sounds good, but isn't much louder than stock. I am sure that it is quieter than the one you have.

engine swap

We have a 95 Yj with the good old 2.5 , 4cyl in it and am thinking about changeing the motor out. This little motor does not give you much confidence when megring onto the highway or pull into traffic. Not really looking for raceing power for a jeep but would like something with a little Huff to get into traffic, Does anyone have any suggestions on what would be a pretty painless swap?

Yea, I heard a little bit in the video clip. Didnt sound too bad at idle.

Already got mine shipped and it will cost $20-$25 to ship it back - almost the cost of the muffler itself. Might as well try at this point.

4wheelin here's the link for the rebate.

http://www.jegs.com/rebates/DynoMax/...urgeRebate.pdf

Can't beat that price!
03-22-2012 05:06 PM
Owen_TJ I vote for magnaflow...

has a nice sound to it but isnt loud, doesnt drone, and isnt raspy at all...is basically the stock noise level with a better sound...
03-22-2012 05:04 PM
opcocrg ^^^ that sounds good but doesn't exactly sound stock. That's the sound I was kind of looking for when I bought my magnaflow but mine sounds nothing like that. Mine is very quiet.

4wheelin damn timberland, that's a helluva deal.

Here's one of the youtube vids of that muffler. Sounds like a winner to me!

timberland You can purchase a complete cat back system for $126.98 ....then get the Dynomax rebate of $75...Hmmm no question at just over $50 for a new system. Noise level is about the same as stock....google Youtube and search from there.

jwillig11 are the cheap mufflers from summit crap, or are they decent? they have them for like $30.
03-22-2012 04:17 PM
jwillig11 yeah that's part of the issue. there's no way i'm spending 250+ on a muffler that's ridiculous. There has to be a cost effective aftermarket alternative.

I agree...I paid $35 for my Thrush. But our mufflers are probably made in China. I would hope that for that price that OEM is US made.

opcocrg My magnaflow is really quiet. I had a flowmaster on my XJ and it was annoying as hell. I got my stainless magnaflow for the same price the local muffler shop was going to charge me for a factory replacement. I'm happy with it.

div4gold Can't see why you don't get a stock muffler. A muffler shop should be able to supply you with a quiet muffler.

Quiet Exhaust

After searching for quite a while on the forums, I can't really find a straight answer. I need a muffler because my rotted to pieces, but I want one that's pretty quiet. Most of the forums on here are guys wanting more noise, I want less noise. I don't want to hear the drone while driving around. And, I don't really like house the flow master 40 series, or similar mufflers, sound. They seem too much like a tuner car.

I need a basically stock sound....?
