Exhaust Stuff. Muffler Opinions

Hi, Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on a high performance muffler. I am looking for something that will give a nice sound when the gas is applied and that will give a little better performance. Also has anyone routed the exaust out the side in front of the passenger side tire in a wrangler? Any pics of these setups? I would like to do a header also but since I wont be keeping the 258 for ever and will have a v-8 I don't want to sink a lot of money into it. thanks Mike

Thrush turbo tubes. They look like glasspacks but they have dimples about every 4 inches. and dont sound too bad on a 6. The inside has the thru pipe design, no chambers or restrictions. and they are not as crackly as a cherry bomb.

I've just got one of the $15 turbo mufflers on mine. I like it. It's got a little rumble to it, but it's not too loud.

Re: Exhaust Stuff. Muffler Opinions

I'm with Jeepgod, cheap and loud. Mine came from a JCW 258 to dual kit (free from my brother), but I did buy $18 worth of adapters![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

A cheap turbo would be a Thrush Turbo that runs about 16 bucks and sounds decent on a 6 cyl. They will have a performance sound when on the gas and quiet down when cruising.

Re: Exhaust Stuff. Muffler Opinions

If you want it to sound good why not bolt a coffee can on the end of the pipe?

Another vote for the Thrush Turbo. (Full name is Thrush California Boss Turbo. Just so it's not confused with the Magnum glasspack). Mellow at idle and cruising speeds, but really starts to talk back when you get on it. I like it.

If you run in a National Forest, you will need mufflers that meet the requirements for spark arresters. That means no straight through designs like glass-packs.

I like the looks of the HOOKER mufflers available in Summit racing, they are more expensive but they seem like better technology and they have great flow. Less than 5% restriction compared to open exhaust.
