Suitcase muffler exposed

Here are a few pics of the inside of the suitcase muffler if anyone was curious.

Re: Suitcase muffler exposed

Ewwww thats yucky lol....

Good post bro, really it is. Shows why the stock setup is so quiet and on how thats designed, plenty of power can be had with a good cat back.

Thanks. It's not what I expected to see when I cracked it open.

Re: Suitcase muffler exposed

That's what I was going for. I replaced the resonators with Borla XR1 mufflers and opened the suitcase muffler up, reconfigured the inside, then welded it back up. I wasn't sure how it would end up, but I'm pretty happy with the results.

I guess it didn't happen then because I didn't get video of it.

Re: Suitcase muffler exposed

Can't, already welded back up. I can take a video of what it sounds like now if that's what you're looking for.

Re: Suitcase muffler exposed

Here's a video of a start up. It sounds like crap on a phone, takes all the base out. I was kinda reluctant to put this video up. The jeep is pretty dirty, we have been getting storms every other day. Hard to keep it clean
