Default Re: Cherry Bomb Duals on 2.3L?

glasspacks on anything other than a V8 sound like poo IMO. i had one on my 86 2.9 and i hated it. i ended up with a turbo style muffler on it and it sounded better. straight through mufflers on a small displacement motor will sound ricey at high RPM's. but do keep in mind, no muffler on the planet will make a 4 banger or V6 sound like a V8.

i just put a cherry bomb turbo muffler on my truck and it sounds pretty good, not wicked loud but better than the corroding one i had on there

thanks for all the input guys, the only issue i ahve is that my exhuast is one long piece from the cat to the tail pipe so i would have to take it to a muffler shop to get just the new muffler put on it so that may cost me a little bit there and idk how they would do, if they would just cut the old one out and re pipe it to a new muffler or what. I may have to talk to some pros about this one lol

You think you're going to gain horsepower from a muffler??? Will that even fit with your invisible tandem axle you claim to have?

i know what ya mean,i checked as much as i can without going to a muffler shop to because of the money it'll cost,but im thinking just cut my old pop can off right behind it,then cut the tip right at the old pop can muffler,and of course measure the tailpipe out make sure i get the right muffler size n just clamp it all in,till get the cash to have it all welded in that way i get the way i want the tip i want positioned the way i like it.

When I took my muffler off, I disconnected the intermediate pipe from the cat flange, hooked it around my spare tire, had one of my friends hold the tail pipe, pulled on the intermediate pipe and it snapped right off at the back end of the old muffler, then I just clamped the new muffler at both ends.

I have 2.5" pipe to Flowmaster 3" pipe all the way out in stock location, my truck has a deep lowend roar, no one believes its a 2.5L 4-clanger

NOt at all gained a little more low end torque.. but I have to say stock exhaust was 9 yrs old and still had cat.. cat was removed when new exhaust was installed.. but all in all I cant expect much from 120hp

How much did it cost you to get it done all in all, like parts and installation?

had an f-150 4.6 now matter what i put on it (gibson, Flowmaster, magnaflow, glasspacks,etc got tired of spending) it would sound like a small V8 on take off then turn into to a big ass rice rocket above 3-3.5 RPMs. although the single 3" pipe cat back swept side gibson kept a low deep tone (due to its massive yet somewhat hollow muff )still set car alarms off through out RPMs. so for V6 motors from what i have experimented with the gibson was the best sound wise. performance wise meh...high way speed kick down (passing and whatnot) all of them worked good. intakes can have an effect on all around performance too in combo with exaust... but it works best with after market air flow sensors and programmers. just leave the v6 as is. or u can experiment with all off the flow master series muffs. up to ya. but with a v6 and 4 cyl engine be happy that its gunna out live all those big gas hoggin loud ass trucks that make a shitty attempt at makin u feel inferior
