Walker quietflow Vs sfx exhaust

I need to replace my mid pipe and muffler. These two kits seem pretty affordable but I can't find any decent sound clips online. I want to keep the jeep as quiet as possible. I'm leaning towards the sfx as it doesn't look like a flow master knock off. It's a 4 banger so I'm assuming it's going to sound raspy and obnoxious with a high flow muffler

I just replaced a banks monster (glass packed straight through) with the quiet flow ss on my 6 cyl

Went from STUPID loud to barely louder than a new car quiet..... I'm not running a cat so it could be even quieter w one.

Was driving the yj today and thought about this thread.... in 5th gear at 60 mph I floored it several times.... I was able to make out some engine noise coming from in front of me but no exhaust sound whatsoever w windows up..... then i rolled the driver's window down and repeated.... heard nothing except wind noise...

While I only use Spintech mufflers on my rides,
I replaced the exhaust on my folk's grand cherokee when it needed done with the Walker direct-fit parts (Muffler, cat & pipes).
They had the 5.2 v8 and the exhaust seemed to work well to keep it quiet. The only time it had a slight rumble was when you stood on it.

Replaced with a Quiet flow several months ago with a tail pipe in this 4 banger. It's fairly quiet without a top on, bikini only and half doors. Next month the YJ goes in for a safety check with no emission requirement at the same muffler shop. Told the man there, I wanted to remove the old cat and he was OK with that. Maybe I'll have him add another quiet flow muffler in place of the cat to add more back pressure and really quiet. lol.

I have spintech on my mustang. Jeep would need another 4 cyl to make those sound good

Any chance you have a video? I can't say here that I'm not running a cat, stock exhaust after that part died with a test pipe while waiting for a replacement sounded decent. No real change in performance and it stank bad. No reason not to run a high flow cat.

No video. I did watch a few on Utube and was under impressed with the glass packs and others in 4 cylinders that sounded like wet farts.

I might try to make a short video for utube with my son on the foot feed.

Yeah I wouldn't run a glasspack when I say spintech I'm not referring to glasspack though. They're just a great product. Great build quality, good sound, great performance, etc
My experience with all exhaust= they ALL stink till you burn them in for a few miles
