Re: How to make a 5.7 Hemi sound like an actual 5.7 Hemi

Sounds good man. Just depends on what kind of a sound you want in the vehicle.

Also, if you guys want any other questions on the mod let me know. Theres videos on the previous page.

My most recent decision was to cut out the center suitcase muffler and add in (2) flowmaster HP2's. It sounds pretty mean now. Like I said, not for everyone, I know, but I like it. Here is a sound clips and photo of the mufflers. The iphone clip doesnt do it any justice. Sorry for the sideways filming.
I like that video clip (the sideways one, lol).. how it sounds... So as I understand to get to that sound you removed the resonators, changed the center suitcase mufflers with two flowmasters? It sounds very nice.

I just want a "subtle" sound before i have to spend "$1k"+ lol. That level of cash i want to spend on rims / tires first lol.

I might visit a local exhaust shop and ask them about removing the x pipe and replacing the mufflers with flowmasters or magnaflows.

I removed the resonators last week and so far no drone. It sounds great, just right.

Funny thing i didn't mention it to gf to see if she would notice, as i just got the 2014 gc about two weeks ago lol. But she did "think" something sounded wrong at times, lol. I kept it to myself , acting as concerned as she was, and "worrying" about the problem lol. Finally told her after a few days lol. Thought id share.

I will have to upload a video clip soon.

I might think of replacing he suitcase muffler later on with a magnaflow muffler ive seen mentioned while searching the archives.

Looks like the files were corrupted somehow. I'll try to reupload them tonight when I get home after the gym. The Jeep sounds great with this cheap mod BTW.

In for a video clip. I'm hoping to do something simple without dropping a grand to do it. Just a bit louder with the throttle down is what i'm looking for. I am otherwise enjoying the quiet ride and Volant CAI.

Any luck on getting the videos uploaded again?

Also, any chance you could upload and pics of the mod?

You think the WK2 with a V8 is quiet?!?!



Not hardly! I hear the V8 in my 2012 under even moderate acceleration! Compared to the V8 in my old 2005 Toyota 4Runner, the WK2 is loud and intrusive. I only heard the V8 in the 4Runner under HEAVY acceleration. In stop-n-go traffic, I hear the V8 in my 2012 WK2 all the time.

The 4Runner had much better sound insulation.
