Personally, I like quiet exhausts. Like my Jeep, I plan on using it to get to remote hunting and fishing spots. Quiet is always better for that.

I have a 2.5l 4 cylinder now and took a chance and put a magnaflow on it. World of difference... Perfect rumble, no fart can, no drone, and when cruising you barely hear it until you get on the gas.

One time I was going down the freeway and a full sized V8 truck got next to me and he also had a magnaflow because our two vehicles started to drone due to them having the same "tone", so his was louder, but sounded just like my 4 banger.

So the short of it... Replacing the Stock Bronco muffler with a Magnaflow and calling it a day.

My exhaust goal is to remove the stock rock magnet muffler before it is ripped off while rock crawling. If that process results in a nicer sound, bonus points.
@da_jokker I've had good results with Magnaflow products as well.

Love those movies! I added a stripe this week though so I should be faster this upcoming season.

Just listen to Motorhead at all times in your Bronco at "11". Exhaust will never be an issue.

It’s got to breath better first. That’s more important to me than sound. Usually just replacing the downpipes frees up a lot of flow, therefore making it louder. The right exhaust would probably make this thing sound sportier. But I’d rather stealth mode in my bronco. Quiet works better for me. But I wouldn’t mind adding a well built exhaust with some cutouts. That way I can get loud and annoying only if I choose to.

While subjectively different for everyone, the 2.7 sounds like explosive diarrhea splattering against an oscillating fan to me. The quieter the better. For those that think it is better louder, well... Enjoy knowing a large chunk of the rest of the World is throwing up just a little in their mouths as you motor on by, and you try to remain blissfully ignorant that people both dislike and pity you at the same time.

Let’s be honest here. It’s a V6. It’s not going to produce the sound most want and definitely nothing remotely close to a 302 V8.

My Alfa Romeo only has a 1.75L engine and it sounds amazing. It's race exhaust does not have a muffler, [From the factory]but turbo cars do not need one for emissions. I am sure the aftermarket will come up with something that sounds really nice. I've had great experiences with magna flow. I am sure they will have a nice option at some point

Yup. There are some good examples of this like the Abarth exhaust. A turbo V6 can sound great. It just needs to be an exhaust that’s built to flow better and knock down vibrations and drone before they travel the length of the exhaust (think tuning fork). No crushed bends, unnecessary hard turns, and opened chambered resonators as close to the turbos as possible, etc.

Watching Off Rodeo videos, they both have a huge amount of pumped in audio. Sound similar inside the truck.
