Oh ok.

Me personally I'm looking for your typical SUV exhuasthe sound. Loud and throaty. Similar to the flowmaster outlaws but they do not have that set for the JGC. Why? I don't know.

Re: WK2 5.7 Hemi Available Exhaust Options...

Is any heat shielding necessary to protect the spare tire well from excessive heat from the Magnaflow X chamber in the rear? The OEM mufflers have heat shields in the wells they sit in.

Most of the cat-back systems I looked at were $1k+ and I paid $500 for the muffer, tips, and labor at my local exhaust shop and am extremely pleased with the results.
How did you all get a shop to install it? My shop told me to order a bigger one and then when I went smaller (to be safe and not sorry) they told me to hit the bricks because it was too big (I disagreed) and the drive-shaft was in the way.

By the way...I like what nicjak has done. If I was near you all, I'd come by, listen to the drive and probably toss a few bills for that custom system. Very well done.

Re: WK2 5.7 Hemi Available Exhaust Options...

I've got a K&N intake and I loved how it sounded. Went to a local exhaust shop and had them cut out the center suitcase muffler and weld in straight pipes for $60. It sounds amazing now. Cheapest mod that will put a smile on your face.

Any chance you can post a video or recording? I've been considering this for a while, but concerned about it being too loud it causing drone. Any noticeable change in performance? All of that mess in the suitcase has to restrict flow.

I'll get a vid up soon. Sounds amazing. Not too loud. No noticeable changes besides turning people's heads.
