"Good" is a relative term. What sounds GOOD to one owner is noise and obnoxious to another.

Each and every of us have the "BEST" sound. I would suggest going to car shows and talking with people and listening to theirs.

That is totally true. Like there's a lot of crappy honda's out there that sound like a pregnant cow, or an airplane, or a bee in a tin can. But then again there are others that sound really good. I'm used to my, well my dad's now, 96 Ram v8. It had a y pipe from a V-force muffler, she sounded so awesome.
Then on my 98 Grand Cherokee i put a fllowmaster muffler on it, it was nice an deep but at high rpm's it sounded kinda tunerish, so like the warden said, to some it may sound good and to others it may sound like sh*t.

I have a glasspack on mine. I love it around town. Letting off the throttle under load it "pops" nicely and isn't overly loud. With that said, the drone of driving interstate speeds for any length of time can get annoying. If I'm alone I just drown it out with the stereo. But this would be something for you to think about when changing your exhaust.

As Crewzin said, and to add my piece, it's like beauty, only in the ear of the beholder.

I personally like my sound better than all the rest, I did this at night so you couldn't see the pipes or the muffler, you'll just have to guess what I have under there!



Exhaust almost knocked the camera over on the tripod!
