Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

I have the gibson axle back exhaust for close to a year now on my 15 altitude. It gives it a nice rumble when u get on it. Get the stainless steel one. I also put two magnaflows and got rid of the suitcase muffler so now this thing is louddd

I don't know if I should get a retune from hemifever

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

From what i have heard the ;Borla Touring Cat-Back Exhaust Systems 140406 should fit direct bolt on, however you will need to change the rear deffer.. Summit racing has a review also on it. I will be getting it to see for myself

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

Just a thought!
Why not cut the top or bottom off the suitcase muffler or peel it back and then cut tennis ball size holes in the inlet pipes in the first (wide) chamber and same size holes in the exhaust pipes in the third (narrow end ) chamber. That way the gas could flow from the inlet pipes to the outlet pipes without going through the center chamber.
Worth a try!

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

Wouldnt that be more expensive and time consuming than just cut cut weld weld? Aka remove and replace

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

Yep, way easier to just remove the suitcase and replace with separate resonators or just straight pipes (that would be too loud for me). But if you want a stock look and/or want to just see how it sounds with a modified suitcase, you could try that. I have read on other forums about folks doing this on other vehicles (just open up and modify the flow path inside and re-weld).

Re: Swapping the suitcase muffler

I have a 2106 Grand Cherokee Overland High Altitude 5.7 Hemi and installed a Spectra Performance CAI. I just did a muffler delete and am thinking about the suitcase as well. Here's a pic of the delete using my stock tips:
