My 88 2.9 sounds good with the cherrybomb and no cats, my honda is much louder.... the bronco II sounds like it has balls..... the honda sounds like a pissed off bee.
JUST BE SURE TO WELD IT ON THE RIGHT WAY!!!

My truck came with a glass pack muffler on it, its the little short one.

under 3 grand is dose not sound bad,and really not very loud. about 3 grand it gos from sorta deep type tone, to weed wackerish an gets a tad loud when on the gas.

if I drop a gear sorta hard, say from 2500 and its jumps to 3500 and Im using the motor to brake with, it sound's a bit coffe canish.


oh yeah, my truck is a 91 w. 4.0

I don't really care for glasspacks on most engines. A 40 series sounds OK on a 4.0 but not nearly as good as it did on my old 2.9. I plan on swapping it for an Aero Turbine 2525.
