Side Exit Pipes

So a while back I wanted to get a louder sound out of my jeep. Something that would be noticable but not sound like a rice burner (sound from glass packs with no modded exhaust). I went to autozone and bought a cherry bomb turbo muffler after seeing a few on youtube. I ended up getting the thing just because it was cheap enough to where I wouldn't really care if it didn't give me the sound I wanted. After having it a while I'm kind of getting tired of the drone it has and want something a little louder. I saw a video of side exit pipes with power sticks and not only does it look awesome, it sounds incredable. So my question is: Does anyone have a setup like this they would be willing to share some info on? OR What would you sugest to improve upon my current set up?

Re: Side Exit Pipes

A guy on here Kyle, with sn NHWK05 has or had his pipes going out the side. I'm sure he'll be able to chime in on how he did it.

Re: Side Exit Pipes

The louder you go the more "drone" you'll have. You can't really avoid it. Corsa says their mufflers doesn't drone, but do you really wanna spend $200+ for just a muffler? Side exits are cool, but if you carry passengers in the back, their legs might get burned...believe me, I know. LOL...

Re: Side Exit Pipes

True, didn't really think of that. It doesn't neccesaraly have to be side exit or wake the neighbors but still looking for something that sounds healthy. Maybe a nice cat/muffler combo. Just wondering what would be the best for my jeep. I love borla exhaust but not sure if that's just going to defeat the entire purpose as they tend to be a little more quiet unless you're pushing something serious (ie. not a 4.0 I6)

Re: Side Exit Pipes

I had a Magnaflow on my ZJ with the I6, and it sounded really good. Perhaps look into a 18" oval, or if you want it a little more talkative, a 14x4" round case. I'd keep it out the back too. Having a tail pipe makes a difference.

Re: Side Exit Pipes

Awesome! Will check into it. And was also thinking about a powerstick. Saw a write up on one of them and they sound totally bad ass.

Re: Side Exit Pipes

If you're talking about the WJ True Dual Powerstick video, that would be yours truly.

Powersticks are really, really raw. If you want a smoother sound, but still loud, then a 14x4 round Magnaflow resonator would be the way to go.

Believe me...I've had enough exhaust changes and mufflers...lol!
