Default 4.0L OHV W/ Just Cats, No Muffler?

I was wondering how loud would my 94 4.0L OHV Ranger Be if I did a muffler delete and kept both the stock cats in? Would it be annoyingly loud? I like exhaust that is loud and has a "pop" to it when you stand on the gas. So basically would it have some "Pop" to it when I give the ol' 4.0L OHV Ranger Some Gas?

fucking horrible. I had it done (due to it falling off lol) sounded like shit. HIGHT SUGGEST you do not do this. Plus, I lost low end torque like crazy. No guts in it.

lol! "due to it falling off", and thanks for the heads up I'm in the mood to try the glass pack, but if I don't like that I'm gunna put on a thrush chambered muffler. But would a 24" glass pack make it sound better than having no muffler?

Yeah I like the sound of flowmasters, Is the Super 44 a little more agressive sounding or less agressive sounding than the Super 40? Also do you hav the 4.0L or 3.0L?

44 is more aggressive, I just didnt have the cash for one. I scored my 40 for $25 at a car show. I have the 4.0 with headers, gutted cat, and 3 inch from the muffler back.

i have my 4.0 running with just the cats, after the last cat its just unbolted and i yanked all the piping out, i as well as the other nor cal guys like the sound, and havent noticed any difference in power... its not incredibly loud, but i would be weary about romping on it in front of a cop.

let me find the video of it, you can decide for yourself. there is a bit of pop when you come off the skinny pedal.


----------

the video would have been better if i had a cam, this was just taken with my cell phone... but i think it has a nice tone, and it has that mean sound.

sounds nice! has nice tone to it, and it sure does have a bit of a pop to it when the its givin' some gas. Do you think it's loud enough that a police officer could hear you coming into town and be waiting 4 ya, and in my case when I do it, me also? haha or is it jst a safe loudness? aka No ticket? haha

honestly if you arent on the skinny pedal it isnt bad, when you punch it, it has some bite to the sound, i drive mellow 99% of the time, i have passed cops and speed traps with it like that and havent gotten anything yet. actually wensday a cop followed me onto the freeway, and i had to get on it a bit, he followed me for a few miles then went alon on his way.

sounds good to me, I got the idea, another movie would be awesome also, and yeah I agree with ya video's don't always do justice, and I bet it sounds even better in person.

Nice, also do you have a vid of ur exhaust set-up with the Headman Headers, and the 3" pipe with the Flowmaster 40?
