Recommend a muffler for me please.

Hey, I want to re locate my muffler to under the drivers floorpan area. My main concern is noise. I need something pretty close to stock noise levels. Any body have a recommendation for a muffler?

I have a huspower II which is about the best your gonna do clearance wise, but you probably wouldnt be happy with it noise wise. It sounds great but its gonna be louder than you want.

I will advise that a 4" round Magnaflow is going to be loud, so don't bother because I like loud and it still annoys me.

6" x 18" should give a much quieter ride. Hopefully someone with one will chime in.

I've been running a Magnaflow since April of 07. Its the same one Cool Tech has on thier website but not $400. I went to the muffler shop had the muffler installed and a short tail piece bent for about $160. The stock exaust is stainless so don't let these cat back companys take your money. All you need is the muffler and a short extension.

Thats what I have but the muffler shop tucked the tail pipe up higher and turned dowwn the end. Magnaflow has a double offset of that muffler so the exaust pipe stays parallel to the frame. It looks neater but wouldn't make a differance, next time maybe. This ones lasted 4 years.

True.
I've run a Cherry Bomb Flowmaster knock off (Pretty sure FM Makes it), I've also run a FM44, and am currently running an FM50.
The 44 was too loud for my taste. The 50 is just the right tone to take away the rice, but still sounds powerful.
The Magnaflow also sounds great. I had that same muffler on my Hemi WK and removed it for something a little louder. Gave it to Pbach and he's running it on his JK. Sounds awesome.

Remove the stock muffler and drive it around. 08 and olders models have 4 cats which do a really good job of droning out the sound.

I'm running a moroso spiral flow on my jk. I needed something that was the dimensions of a glass pack but I absolutely hate glasspacks. The sprial flow did the trick, it's chambered (not media packed), has a small case, and fits perfectly b/w the evap canister and the framerail on my 2 door. I'm happy with the way it sounds and others seem to think it sounds decent as well.

the airraid gives it the real low sound. especially after 3k miles it starts to get louder.

even without the air raid intake, the exhaust is far from ricey. it's pretty quiet though. most of the sound you're hearing is coming from the intake.

Thanks all. The MBPR does sound nice. Which set up is that? I was looking at their stuff and the Magnaflow M66 set up. I guess it's about decision time....

It is their MBRP Aluminum version. It's the cheapest one and it cost me like $295.00.

Their off road version has a smaller muffler and it's a lot louder from the sound clips I hear.
