    Hello ladies and bruces....
    I want to install an exhaust system on my '05, but I'm not ready too throw down the big bucks yet. I was thinking about putting a cherry bomb glass pack on the truck first, see how I like that for a much cheaper price.
    I am more looking for a bit louder / meaner sound than tons of performance.
    What do you think? Go for a glass pack? Other cheap suggestions to start?

    Cheers

    It will sound terrible. If you just want performance, go with a dynomax super turbo. They're pretty cheap too.

    Why not just keep saving your money up for something you actually want.

    most people on here will say that they are better for v8s and that it'll rice out a v6... they do sound mean on v8s, but per the request of a friend of mine, i put a 16 in cherrybomb glassback on his 2002 toyota mr2 (I4). i have to say i was surprised how good it sounded. it was only above 6500 rpm that it sounded like a fart cannon. so 99% of his driving, it sounded great. exhaust sound is a personal prefference, so we can only offer our opinions on this. with that said, if you think you'll like it, i say do go for it. if it doesn't work out, you're only about $40 in the hole...but you can always sell it.

    i (and many others on here) are running flowmaster 40 series. i got mine 3 years ago, brand new for $45. they have gone up in price since then ($65 online), but i love the way it sounds (again, a personal opinion).

    hope this helps :)

    Glass pack is a style of exhaust made by Cherry Bomb. It is more open, so it has a deeper rumble, because it's more open and just straight pipe.

    I am more looking for audio, then performance. If I was gonna do performance I would do full engine mods too. I will look into that system though

    thanks fellas, any other thoughts or suggestions

    FWIW, I bought a Dynomax Ultra Flow muffler from streetsideauto.com for $58, minus $5 (coupon code: FUELIE) with free shipping. Then I submitted a $25 rebate so the total cost was $28 for the muffler. A local shop installed it for just under $70 so the whole thing cost me about $100. The Ultra Flow is nowhere near as loud as a glass pack, but I like it. Nice deep rumble. Not as deep as a V8 but definitely not ricey. And I have notice a little more throttle response too.

    18 " oval Magnaflow + IMCO resonator

    great sound like a high performance 6 cylinder sports car (IMO)

    no rasp - no ricey sound - no fart canon sound - no drone

    even my wife likes it
