First long trip and I took the Dynamax off and welded the stock muffler back in. The only performance difference I noticed is the replacement speakers work better going back to stock.

I installed doug thorley's on my '04. They required welding so I drove it to a shop to have a flange welded on. While Driving however the exhaust was coming straight out of the headers, no cat or exhaust. That sounded nice. My wife didn't think so.
I did remove my 2 restrictive 2" cats and put one high flow 2.5" cat in with a flowmaster 40 series at the end. It turns heads. I'm sure that a 4.0L would sound even better

I'm running DT long tubes, and the flowmaster 50 series. If I open it up, then it sounds like straight headers. But on the freeway, it calms down, and it's tolerable.

I never went above 2000 rpm with just the open headers. I can't get another ticket and I also was trying not to melt the engine compartment. I'm sure that without any backpressure it probably sucked. I had also installed a new clutch so it was hard to gauge a torque level because the clucth was a little spongey. When I went to start it in the garage I told my wife to go outside but she didn't want to. She got mad at first because I spent 600 bucks to make it sound like that.
When I had my stock exhaust with a flowmaster 40 series on it I would get a lot of drone crusing on the highway. After the headers and de-catting it's nowhere near as loud inside. If I want to here it I just roll the windows down.

DT long tubes, and an aero turbine 2525. You will blow the doors off of the flowmaster guys!
