1. Normally when "exhaust" is mentioned, we're refering to a cat-back "exhaust" system from the catalytic converter to the back (cat-back). Muffler is usually the big can looking thing after the catalytic converter used to "muffle" the exhaust sound. Without it, you'd be pretty loud. Resonators, after the muffler, to even further reduce certain tones that the muffler missed. Its resonance.

2. A performance chip or programmer, when done correctly can adjust certain parameters in your vehicle and seriously unlock hidden throttle response, transmission shift points and horsepower.

3. I don't know

4. I don't know

5. You'd really need a V8 to sound like that but you can still get a deep tone with the right what?............Exhaust system. Lol.
Hope I helped a little and hope to god I was right. Lol.

3.) A powerstick muffler replaces the suit case muffler. And you will most likely not pass the safety inspection because it is a race muffler.

4.) From my Jeep:
And I dont think I am going to pass inspection. Its a race only muffler.

1: Muffler and resonator basically do the same thing. They usually combine them to really quiet things down. Usually goes, CAT-Muffler-resonator.

2: A chip takes certain signals and modifies them before the PCM to get more performance.
-Flashed PCM changes more then just the few parameters that the chip affects.
-Tuners are the best route. They can do everything the flashed PCM route can but you can do it over and over compared to paying for each pcm refash. They can also clear/check trouble codes ETC...

3: Power stick replaces your muffler and it should not affect you passing any emissions, except possibly a visual since it is not a stock piece.

4: A bullet muffler is just a different style of muffler. Usually a race muffler.

5: Not sure what you have compared o the video.

6: One is plastic tube and one is metal tube i believe.

Not trying to be an asshole but thats the truth. A bullet muffler on a V6 will make the Jeep sound like a riced out Japanese Car. A suggest a flowmaster muffler if you want something louder than stock but not rice sounding.
