Thumbs up 5.7 Exhaust.......

Hey folks,

Just picked up my new 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7, In the past I've had a 1999 Cherokee Classic and a 2004 Wrangler Rubicon. The question I have is there any "performance exhaust" systems you would recommend for my 2011. I like the Hemi but think it should sound like a Hemi. I own Corvettes and have played with the exhausts several times and would like to do a catback or even easier just mufflers to liven it up a little...... Thanks for the suggestions..

Dave

Corsa's is available for purchase, but they don't have any Db, MPG or Horsepower updates as of Tuesday.

Re: 5.7 Exhaust.......

The Magna Flow states it does not fit with the Off Road package. I wonder if any of the other systems will?

Re: 5.7 Exhaust.......

Being a HUGE Corsa and Borla fan I would wait to see what Borla offers also but you cant go wrong with the Corsa either.

Re: 5.7 Exhaust.......

Alot of guys I know with Corvettes have done Corsa and Borla, I'm starting to do my homework. I believe Corsa has a nice set up with little to zero drone at cruising RPM's, at least thats the way it is with the Chevys.....Thanks for the input...

Re: 5.7 Exhaust.......

We've had clips from Magnaflow, Borla, & Corsa on the 5.7 WK2'S, all sound and perform great and have the droning handled well in MDS. Now that you mention it, the Borla does sound like a Corvette, heh.

Magnaflow 16929 installed!

This is very important news. I wonder if it will clear the skid plates underneath, (lowering ground clearance), or if the exhaust fits under the plates. Guess it's time to email/call.
Email sent.

Re: 5.7 Exhaust.......

I spoke with the tech guy, easy to do during business hours. Just a pricy system. Chrysler is looking at the system for the performance offering as they have done with other models.

Re: 5.7 Exhaust.......

I've been thinking about leaving the stock exhaust and removing the resonators. What do you guys think about that? I don't want it to be to loud, but i also would like to get a little more sound out of the Hemi!
