I have two on my Judge. About 1000 miles in 5 years. Caused a noise ordanance to be enacted at a local cruise. Am hearing impaired but was still objectionable until I added an "H" pipe which reduced the transients.

Here ya go, this may help. I took more video this weekend of the exhaust so you could hear it. I dropped the quality of the video but the audio is still pretty good. These videos were taken with my digital still camera so they are not top notch.

thanks man. i sort of like that sound but i was about to ask another question. does anyone know what a flowmaster sounds like? i was at the gas station and i just got out of the car and a 93 lumina Z34 started up and pulled away, and that baby was growling, i could feel it in my chest it was so deep, i just figured is must have been a flowmaster. those cars only have 3.4 V6'* so it wasn't the engine, it was dual though, but this was DEEP and loud. i decided if i could get that sound i want it. so back to my original question, does anyone know if flowmaster gave it that deep, loud and mellow sound or possibly another muffler and which one?

The magnaflow sounds good.. but the flowmaster sounds deeper IMO.

Well the big difference I can see is that in the vid you posted the acceleration is MUCH faster than in my vid. Hell I don't even think it got past 2K MAYBE 2.5K with Renee driving. So to be fair I will try and get a vid of faster acceleration when I get back in town.

jimbo'* '89 has the magnaflow exhaust also, and it was in a little higher rpm range.. I still think the flowmaster sounds better.. but it is a lot of personal preference.
