It started out real quiet but now that it has broken in a bit it sounds pretty good. It's no V8 still but it was definately worth it!

Was it the sound you were going for utahp? Just curious. Now that you have left your cat~verter on, wanna go club baby seals with me? Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm still trying to not be an ass. But, I have noticed: People who are on the "global warming is our fault" are alot more ravenous than people who don't believe it.
Now, don't think me an ass, just hear me out, please:
I get called ignorant and an idiot on here for not thinking that the world is spinning out of control because of the internal combustion engine. This is by people who believe something that is not proven. Then they want to bring up the whole 6000 year thing. So... I believe in something that is not proven to you (God) and that makes me an idiot in your eyes. You believe in something that is not proven to me (lets not say global warming, lets call it climate change, like adults). Hmm, lests agree to disagree.
Now, still not wanting to be an ass, bit I have detected some Jeep hatred here, sooo.... I do have a Ranger, but my good vehicle is a Wrangler. There we go, I feel the hate flowing now...

Yeah the sound is about what I wanted. Gained a little power I think, and a couple mpg too. Well said sawdoff!

I think it would depend on where you o2 sensors are located in you exhaust system. Also today's mufflers have little or no back pressure because of the cats( I was told by a muffler shop owner).

I personally have a cherry bomb on my dodge dakota which is the 3.9 v6. I love the sound of it. I say glass pack it.
