Generic turbo muffler....quiet enough to not get on your nerves (or neighbors) but a nice sound....almost all good muffler shops carry them....I never could understand the reason to spend money on a flow master....you only end up putting a rock into them....

I like the Dynomax Super Turbo, DYNOMAX Performance Exhaust, for it's good flow and less noise than the others.

A Flowmaster is a great choice. I have one on my XJ and I love the sound. It has a nice rumble to it, almost sounds like a V8 under the hood. And when I open her up, she really gets loud. But I can still drive it easy and not disturb my neighbors, unless i cruise slow at about 1500 RPM, then they feel me commin.

I personnaly would rather be able to detect something going wrong with my rig before it becomes catastrophic, so rather than have a loud exhaust that prevents hearing problems when they arise, I choose one that gives better flow than stock without adding significant noise. Flowmasters are good when a short 12" glasspack is added behind them as I have on my Wagoneer.

Too quiet? Sounds like a V8?

Who are you fooling? If you want it to sound powerful - why not play a recording of a dragster in the boom box? Even more little kids will be impressed! You could even play sounds of cheering and put the white checkerd flag on your fenders.
