Default Mufflers?? What's your choice?

Hi

Looking for a muffler.
Something that i can combine with a Thorley header and 2" exhaust for the best performance and best sound.

What muffler do you have? How do you like it?

Does anyone have this in their Sami?

Samurai Performance Exhaust Combo Kits - Exhaust - 86-95 Samurai - Suzuki


Please help

Thanks

The kit looks pretty sweet but it does not appear to have a catalytic converter, you might check and see if it will be smog legal in your area, or budget to add one if you need.

I live about a jillion miles from the nearest smog check station, I used a catalytic converter anyway to keep it cleaner smelling when the top is off and to cut down on noise. I want the extra muffling of a cat as well.

That being said mine goes like this:

Thorley header w/ 2" reducer > Magnaflow universal cat #91004 > 2" pipe > Magnaflow muffler # 11114 right before diff > 2" pipe out the rear w/ turned down.

I modeled this system, down to the stainless steel muffler and cat part numbers, after the personal rig of a Samurai guru from Trail Tough. While I only have 10 miles on it (Back off the road for trans rebuild) it has a nice note but pretty quiet, cant smell anything and seems to flow PLENTY! Because I went on ebay for the muffler and cat I got each for around $50 brand new shipped.

I have no long term review but I consider it a HUGE upgrade from the 2.25" and Flowmaster. Performance is better in every respect and it no longer offends my sense of tranquility.

I'm running a Thorley into a 2" MagnaFlo universal cat with a Walker Quiet Flow 21535 2" turbo muffler. The system follows the stock path, exiting out the side.

I previously had a Cherry Bomb turbo muffler on it, but found it to be too loud. The Quiet Flow has a nice throaty sound, without being too loud.

It sounds like a nice system. It's sort of tricky sometimes to get a nice throaty sound without that loud ricey thing going on, especially from such a small engine. Good performance and good sound at a volume that's easy to live with on a daily basis is a nice achievement.

I had 2.5" Cherry Bombs on my 70 Torino GT straight out the back, it sounded quite angry with any throttle at all (351C with 11.7:1 compression) Ear candy to be sure but it was a bit loud, I was only 19 then so thats my excuse.

I'm afraid I don't. I can probably do one this weekend though.

I'm sure hate mail will be sent my way after I post this.
THERE IS NO ADVANTAGE IN ADDING A HEADER TO A STOCK , OR SEMI STOCK SAMURAI ENGINE.
The HP gained touted by Lowrainge have more to do with the 2" exhaust and muffler.
I don't have the stamina right now to go into the whole exhaust pulse theory. It's been coved in great detail before, ON THIS SITE. And others.
I prefer a welded muffler to a tin can......2" pipe in the stock path. Is all you will need.

Boxcar, I agree to a point with the horsepower gains.
For those of you that have a cracked stock exhaust manifold, use a header and you won't have to worry about it again. Some stock items really need to be upgraded.
