Cut the muffler off my 2012 GC X

So i was debating on cutting the muffler off for months. Today i finally did it, and im very satisfied. Nice agressive sound coming out, with very little drown on the highway. Now im wondering if i added a new exhaust tip would it make it sound any better? Right now im using the tip off the stock exhaust.

Any info or opinions would be great Thanks!

I don't think an exhaust tip is going to change the sound any. If you're looking to change the exhaust note, you could look into adding one with a resonator.

An exhaust tip may effect interior sound. It may bring the exit further back and undercarriage wont reflect the sound into the interior as much. Its not going to change exterior sound.

Re: Cut the muffler off my 2012 GC X

I think the OP is referring to installing a dual walled resonated tip.

They do alter the sound of your exhaust.

The question is what diameter since a larger tip will have the megaphone effect and amplify the ECO drone.

I installed the Magnaflow dual exhaust on my car and after playing with joint length and other fine tuning I slid some pipe into my exhaust tips to get rid of the resosance.

now I have an exhaust that is as loud as a 1999-2004 JGC 4.0 without the drone from before. It probably only cut the decibels down by a few but going from a really quiet jeep to really loud is a jump.

Re: Cut the muffler off my 2012 GC X

The drone noise isnt bad at all. I also noticed the muffler weighs like 30 pounds, whats up with that? I could only imagine how much the resonator weighs.

Re: Cut the muffler off my 2012 GC X

I thought the big thing halfway back was the muffler and the 2 things by the exhaust exit were resonators???
