Help me plan!
 
I want to put an exhaust on my Jeep. I am looking to go as cheap as possible. I don't care about drone my intake and system are loud and I love it! Would it be best to just slap on a powerstick? What diam and length etc. would I need? Do I just cut off the muffler and clamp the stick on? My Jeep is a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo I6 4.0L any help would be appreciated! I want growl! <3

A powerstick would give you a loud exhaust note for sure. Im sure there are some you tube videos of people with the 4L engine and a powerstick so you could see how it sounds. As for dimensions of the product, hopefully fellow 4L WJ-ers will chime in for ya.

OK, I looked at that website. Couple of questions...

1.) Are they good for performance?
2.) Does it adequately replace the muffler? (Emissions)
3.) How is it put on? Clamps? Welded?
4.) Are they reliable off road?
5.) Sizes?! What should I put on my 4.0L to get the best sound? (Growl) What inlets, outlets, length and diameter is best for my Jeep?
6.) Is this the ONLY company/website I can get these from? Are they reliable?

Any other ideas/thoughts will help! I just want to be sure which one I should order and how to put it on.

Again,
1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L I6

1. yes, minimal restriction, coupled with a nice cold air intake or short ram will make your motor breathe better.

2. I would guess it depends on which state you live in.

3. When my perf. muffler was put on, it was welded so my guess is whatever the shop does if you take it to one.

4. I dont see why not. Small, lightweight, sleek and does not hang down low like the stock muff does.

5. Need a fellow 4L guy to chime in.

6.Looking for input from Joe or other powerstick users if they know.

Hope this helps best i can.

Thank you for your help!

OK, So far, so good!

What I need to know now is...

Q.) Does it adequately replace the muffler? (Emissions)
A. I would guess it depends on which state you live in.

I live in Connecticut. Any ideas as to emissions?

Q.) How is it put on? Clamps? Welded?
A. When my perf. muffler was put on, it was welded so my guess is whatever the shop does if you take it to one.

I am going to do this myself hopefully. Does anyone know if clamps are OK?

Q.) Sizes?! What should I put on my 4.0L to get the best sound? (Growl) What inlets, outlets, length and diamitor is best for my Jeep?
A. Need a fellow 4L guy to chime in.

If anyone knows what is the BEST for inlets, outlets, length and diameter for my I6 4.0L please reply! I want the best growl!

Q.) Is this the ONLY company/website I can get these from? Are they reliable?
A. Looking for input from Joe or other powerstick users if they know.

More info on the company, or if these are sold in other places would help! Thanks!

I just ordered a Borla muffler for my 02 WJ 4.7HO. Probably not what you're looking for, but I'll put it on, and put some clips up soon...

I would love a Borla or other system but I do not have the money for it. A powerstick seems like a nice alt to paying 1k for a exhaust system etc...

I guess no one owns a 4.0L and/or a Powerstick...

remove the muffler...add straight pipe in its place. Add a resonator towards the end of the exhaust for drone.

Well, I got the Borla for $70 shipped off ebay, but I can do my own custom piping. I think retail on the Borla is around $120.

1.I imagine that a less restrictive muffler will be better than stock, but your not gonna take a second off ur 1/4 mile.

2.Your catalytic converter controls emissions, not the muffler. The Powerstick will be an adequate replacement.

3.Clamps will work just fine, make sure you tighten them enough to do their job and actually clamp down on the metal.

4. I don't see why they wouldn't be adequate for offroad.

5.Your Jeep has a stock 2.5 inch diameter, so unless your going to upgrade all the pipes, you have to get a 2.5 inch inlet/outlet. And once you cut off the old muffler, your going to need at least 22 inches of pipe to fill the gap. A shorter Powerstick will probably be a little louder and harsh and the longer you go will result in a slightly quieter, more mellow tone but still pretty ferocious even on an I6. However, don't expect it to sound like a 60's muscle car, you'll need a V8 for that.:thumbsup:

6.Classicchambered.com is the only place that I know of that sells the powerstick.

Hope that helps!
