I didnt go with dual exhaust on mine due to the pain in the rear routing around the gas tank in the rear. I did go with a flowmaster super40 and a 2 1/2" pipe exit though. Sounded alright but still wasnt as throaty as i wanted. I cut the cat off due to all my O2 sensors are in the front by the motor and it really opened the Jeep up. Tacking out and pulling a hard load it sounds dam near like a V-8 now. Not to mention the increase in mid range power. With the Airaid intake its a nice increase in power and grunt. Just replace the cat with a straight pipe and it will sound a ton better. Thats only if you dont have any sensors after it. Doesnt throw any check engine codes and only helps ya. As for the dual option, if i could of figured out a way to bend around the tank i would of done it. But it was painful enough just exitting it on the passenger side. But ive got the 19 gallon gas tank so dunno if that will make a difference.
x2.Generations to come will thank you for adding your emissions to the atmosphere! Put the CAT back on! They are there for a reason!
why would a flowmaster off ebay look different than another flowmaster unless the dude you bought it from messed it up?I'll let you know tomorow for sure.. From my 10 minutes look last week it looks like the cat is clamped to the muffler and then there is a 2.5" pipe that leads all the way back I think the muffler also has 2.5" intlet..
My flowmaster 50 delta (2.5" in/out) just arrived. It looks ok.. the finish is kinda cheap but what can you expect from ebay.. Anyhow its here and i will try to see what we can do at the shop.
cool. let us know how you like it. i've heard a clip of the 50 and it sounds pretty deep. i have it saved on my computer but its in mp3/wav format. i got it off of www.exhaustsoundclips.comyep thats what i ment the paint chipped off as i took off the sticker showing "intlet side" from the middle of the pipe.. If i'm correct flowmasters site sells stainless steel for 150 bucks or so.. my muffler from ebay is new or at least no singns of carbon in it, few dents here and there but those i could care less.. Ill see what i can do tomorow
There are 10 bolts total holding your skid plate to the jeep. 3 on each side into the frame and then 4 on the tranny mount to the skid plate. Easiest way is to just use a floor jack to support it when you drop it down. You can do it without one, but it's kind of heavy.the tranny is held to the chasis using different bolts right? And its not that heavy?
