eh, personally, i think unless u got a v8, if u go aftermarket to get that 'rumble' sounds to me like its farting into an empty beer can...... i have YET to hear a single exhaust system that gives that 'v8 rumble'

This one sounds pretty good. It's 01xltranger4x4's new setup: Clicky

I wasn't going for a big v8 sounding rumble. I wanted something quiet with a little rumble/sound to it.

I was just talking to larson about you...

How do you like your Borla exhaust? Do you get any droning in the cab? Did you see any performance/mpg increases?

I saw a mpg increase with my old gibson...that was back when I had less performance mods. I couldn't say I noticed any increase or decrease in mileage with the borla. It "felt" like the low end was a little better than the Gibson when I put it on, but I cant say for sure. Top end is just as good as the Gibson as far as I can tell. I love my Borla and I wouldnt switch it for anything else. If I ever change an exhaust on a vehicle I own in the future, then it will be a Borla!

In the cab you dont really hear it at idle, outside the cab you can hear it at idle softly rumbling. At freeway speeds I can hear it with the stereo off but its not droning. With the stereo on I dont notice the exhaust much at all.

I was thinking about going to a si/do borla to kinda quit things down a bit. It does get old on road trips. Then again I still have the stock stereo speakers in =]
Dude.... No Joke!!!! Get those baby's upgraded... Then you will be saying, "What exhaust?!?"

Which Pro XS did you get? I am going to be putting on a whole new exhaust setup on the new 95 4.0 I got last week. I want to do a single in, Dual out type setup. I only have 2 cats and a single to dual pipe exit with 3 inch tips. I just need some direction so I can get that aspect completed.

I don't remember the exact model, but the inlet is in the center and 2 outlets. Just look on Borlas site and you should see the model #.

My own exhaust setup is pretty mellow at idle once it warms up.. but when I hammer it down you can hear it with pretty well, sounds great... JBA headers with a flowmaster 40 dual exits out the back and 2" piping

FlowMaster will probably be your best bet. I like Borla better because they are not as loud.
