flowmaster on 4cyl
I am needing a new muffler and was thinking of puttin on a flowmaster like i put on my mustang but i am wondering about the sound. I know it wont sound as nice as on a v8 but does anyone know anyone who has done this thanks.

might sound a little like a hornet...but im not sure of what muffler on a 4 cylinder wouldn't...i've got a flowmaster on my 4.0 and it sounds awesome but i dont know about your 4 cylinder...i know that "lcpl Konicki" has one on his 4 clydiner so maybe u could send him a pm and ask him how it sounds

oh and one other thing...if your just needing a new muffler you could just go with a 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.

mrbigjeep 07-10-2006 03:18 PM does the hushpower sound on your YJ?? what engine does your YJ have?

Sounds louder than the 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.

I have other mods on my 2.5 engine wise, but if you get the flowmaster 40 cat back -on mine at least it doesn't sound ricey!
