I have a 92" and i have an exhaust question. Towards the front of the exhaust system, the two pipes that come from the engine go into what looks like some sort of large collector and then out as one pipe. i was wondering if this was a resonator and if it is, if i replace it with just a y pipe will it get louder? i like noise....:thumbup

I believe that would be your catalytic converter. You can cut it out and put a piece of pipe there, But Do us all a favor and save the enviroment and the atmosphere.

nope, its not the cat, its before u get to the cat. two pipes go in, and one comes out, and its big, not a normal headpipe or y-pipe. Could i have two cats, one before the other?

Me? Enviro Nazi....Noooo, But Most states have emissions testing, Raf does in Cali....And its easier to explain the RIGHT way to do it, Rather then the 1/2 assed way.

shouldnt it still pass even with one, most cars only have one. its not a piece of crap that smokes or anything, its in perfect condition. And if i were to take one of, which one should it be, the first one with the two pipes going in, or the normal one b4 the muffler

If you have emission testing - can't remember if NH does or not - then you have to have both cats on there. if you don't, it won't pass the test - assuming a visual test is part of the testing. Try taking it to any muffler shop, and asking them to remove one of them... a respectable shop won't do that, knowing the consequences if they, and get caught... that'd be a federal offence, and a 25K dollar fine for them, and a 2500 dollar fine for you.

There are better ways to get louder :rolleyes:

really, you want any louder, get a short glasspack

glasspack- 1. n. often believed to be a type of simple type of automotive muffler. 2. $10 pile of crap that makes your nice ford sound like a 1974 white trash camaro.


Cheap, and as a bonus, sounda lika crap too!

the first one is a cat, like the other guys said.
mine passes emissons(back when we had them) with only the front cat. i just knocked all the guts outta the rear cat, so it looked like it was all factory.
i only did this cause it was clogged up. just letting zach and raf, the new fsb tree hugging, granola eating, envrio freaks i know so they dont target me for enviro terrorism or anything:goodfinge



and zach, you still going to matts to get so we can do your lift?

take a sawzal to the first cat and cut that b!tch off. Then not only do you now have a new slick, super fast, free flowing, horse power liberating, dual exhaust, performance enhanced system that could easily take you into quarter times in the sub 6s. The sound is absolutely incredible not too throaty and a perfect rumble it really might be the most incredible free mod out there for broncos.

Oh and only man-ginas worry about smog tests, seriously
