But those ground spoilers are not the roll spoilers. They are independent.

Jeep Cherokee 4.0l, 6 Cylinder?

Hi there!

I´m getting next week an old 1993 Jeep Cherokee. It has a 4l, 6 cylinder engine with 180 hp.
I´m just wondering now if it can make the same "bubbling" sound like a V8 if you change the exhaust pipe (muffler)?
How does the sound change? Has anyone experience with that?
