? for those who did magnaflo catback

I have a question for those who have the 3.6L and added the magnaflo catback exhaust:
how has it been since break in?
Any pros or cons?
How is the drone if any?
Seen any improvements acceleration wise?
Anyone just bought the resonators, muffler and x-pipe instead of the whole catback system?

I just purchased a maximum steel 2014 overland with the v6, im coming from an 09 Dodge ram with Hemi which had a magnaflo so im still getting used to less sound and performance but overall im really liking the jeep...especially at the gas pump. I have been doing a lot of reading and searching but any insight you could give would be very helpful.

Re: ? for those who did magnaflo catback

First off, welcome.
2nd, excellent choice on the max steel. Idk, but to me that color just pops.

anywho needless to say i think i'm in the same boat as you as far as wanting to know feedback. I for one am still looking at all options available for the hemi. It's still very quite compared to the previous V8 I've owned. I even had a few V6's that i went loud with the exhaust(MRT v1).

So i would also like to know.

Thanks....I am loving the color so far. I really liked the magnaflo i had on my ram with the 5.7 hemi, had a great rumble to it. Im just not sure its worth doing on the 3.6. I would like it to have a little more acceleration from a stop and just a bit more sound. I was hoping for a few more responses...guess i will keep researching and hope someone who has done it chimes in. Congrats on your new Jeep as well.

I have the magnaflow 16929 in the garage awaiting spring for the install on my 2014 Limited Hemi. No use trying to put on during the winter crap.

Re: ? for those who did magnaflo catback

I did it on my '12 GC with 3.6 Pentastar. 1.5yrs and 45,xxx kms it still rumbles as it did after it broke in. Took about a week to break in. It doesn't sound like no v8 but Its deep. Search my posts and you'll find links to my youtube videos

Re: ? for those who did magnaflo catback

It sounds wicked on the Hemi. The startup burble alone is worth it.

Re: ? for those who did magnaflo catback

If you have a 2014 3.6l my personal opinion would be to find a quality muffler shop and let them duplicate the X pipe and swap the large suit case muffler two smaller ones.


The 16929 kit is a bigger performance improvement when coming from the 3.6 so single exhaust.


At one point I had a 16929 installed on my 2012 3.6 and I did feel a difference. But just slightly more than the OEM dual system. I feel the OEM dual set up on a 3.6 is a good balance of flow and quiet.


So here is the rub:


For sound change the rear resonators


For performance change the front suitcase muffler. (cut the flanges off and weld them onto two 2.5" straight through magnaflows)

Greetings,

Did you find a performance improvement in the middle power range area and how loud is it?

Also did you ever get the chance to the CAI yet?

Best for now.
