aFe Performance Exhaust

As some of you may know are used my Jeep for their intake prototyping...

Well I got an email about an exhaust for the 5.7 WK2 being at the top of their list!

The Jeep is going in for a week on the 21st.

Hopefully it will be a competitively priced viable option for us WK2 owners still waiting for that perfect sound!

Nice! Looking forward to your review.

This just made me realize I still need to get my Gibson kit installed.

Re: aFe Performance Exhaust

I love my AFE exhaust on my Tahoe! Good power gain and was only $400 for stainless piping.

Re: aFe Performance Exhaust

Yeah the focus isn't too great.. They expect the whole process to take a week. Longest week ever until I get my WK2 back

Re: aFe Performance Exhaust

Just to be clear, you are driving a Focus temporarily -- while your Jeep is at eFe for a week? I think you scared some when you said "traded".

Yes.

They are building 3 prototypes.

Dual 3" piping w/ xpipe
Dual 3" piping w/o xpipe
Dual 2.75" not sure about xpipe

The dual 3" with no x was apparently significantly louder then the option with xpipe, but fit more snuggly up against the body. No news about the 2.75" as they ran out of fabrication time.

Last I heard, they are finishing the 3rd prototype and then will dyno all 3 and then decide from there on which to produce.
