2015 SRT Exhaust Options

I'm a newbie and I've been looking for an exhaust system for my 2015 SRT. I was checking out the Borla ATAK, however a shop told me that although the Borla ATAK made for the 2014 model will bolt on without issue, it doesn't sound right on the 2015 due to the slight engine changes in the new model.

Does anyone have any experience in this or can anyone suggest an alternative?

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Re: 2015 SRT Exhaust Options

Whoever told you that is a moron.


The only engine changes are 5 more HP and the removal of back pressure valves near the rear axle. These changes will make ZERO difference to how a Borla sounds.

Re: 2015 SRT Exhaust Options

What you are saying makes sense. I spoke to Borla directly and they told me the same thing, which was that it will fit but it sounds different from the 2014. When I asked what sounded different, they said the system has an annoying drone when connected to the 2015 model.

Due to the removal of the valves on the 2015, even the stock exhaust has a bit of a drone - which is the nature of the vehicle, and wouldn't really be exhaust specific.

BUMP for some other 2015 owners that can recommend an exhaust system...

Same here. I also talked to the techs at Borla and they told me to hold off until they can test the Atak and S type on a 2015. Tech said maybe around spring time they should have more info for the 15's. I think I'm going to get the GTHaus though.

The GT Haus sounds amazing, but I read in another thread that the can cause a slight loss in power - have you heard anything different?

I read that on another thread also. From what I've read I think the only time you might have the loss is running with the valves open all the time. Not sure though. Maybe someone can chime in who has the system already. Talked to GTHaus and they're located in the burbs of Chicago and I'll have them install it for me and I'll purchase it directly through them. Would save me some money too.

I installed the CORSA cat back system on my 2015. Sounds great and doesn't create any diagnostic codes. If you search my posts you will find an extensive writeup on the installation and sound of this system. You can also PM me with specific questions if you like. The post I am referring to is dated 12/04/2014.

Re: 2015 SRT Exhaust Options

There is no drone on the 2015 with a Borla S...it starts out kind of annoying and boomy, but quickly quiets down after you put some miles on it.

Is it noticeably louder than the stock exhaust, and did you gain or loose any power from it?

Re: 2015 SRT Exhaust Options

I contacted borla and just got an email from someone there today. I guy by the name of Chris Higgins. I reads this...




Good Morning,
Thank you for recently contacting Borla regarding our exhaust availability for your 2015 SRT8 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We are diligently seeking an R&D vehicle to test with, but so far have come up empty-handed. Unfortunately you’re a bit away from our R&D facility in Oxnard, CA. Do you know anyone with a 2015 SRT8 Cherokee who’s in Southern California and might be interested in loaning us their vehicle? In exchange for a couple weeks with their vehicle, we’re happy to provide them with a free exhaust system. This will also greatly speed along the process at which we’re able to sell exhaust systems to other SRT8 Cherokee owners. And if you’re able to find us a test vehicle, your finder’s fee will be discounted pricing on an exhaust system. Hopefully you can help us out; thanks & happy motoring!


Best Regards,
Chris




So if anyone with a 2015 is in Southern Cali and is willing to let them test out your SRT and receive a system for free let me know and ill contact this guy back. That would be awesome, for me, to get a good discount on a setup.

Re: 2015 SRT Exhaust Options

Anyone else have a Borla S on the 15 ...does it drone or not ? My 15 is coming soon and would like to grab the S while waiting but the warning is putting me off a bit.
