Re: Bypass kit? Anyone ever seen something like this?

Thanks. Nope I have them open full time. I hated that "hand over the exhaust" sound; the fluttering. It didn't sound good at all. Look up any ATAK install or resonator delete video and it will be evident right away. The MDS is slightly louder, but so is the entire exhaust, and it's nothing the radio can't over-power while on long trips. Just driving around though is so much more enjoyable. I also wanted to test the myth of lost MPGs, CELs, and crap low-end due to the lack of the "back-pressure" these create.

Honestly, I think they were to quiet the whole exhaust system, not just MDS...

Re: Bypass kit? Anyone ever seen something like this?

So I'm thinking about getting an exhaust set-up like this on my 2012 SRT. On a 1-10 scale how would you rate the STOCK sound at IDLE vs. your mod?

Also do you think I should just go to my local exhaust shop and see if they can do this set-up and just delete the resonator? To me it seems like it'd be cheaper..

Thanks in advance for any input!

You see the video two posts up right? That's as accurate as it gets. Stock the SRT is very quiet. Now I have a nice, deep exhaust with the V8 tone this Jeep deserves. On a 1-10, factory gets a 3. Hardly any tone and it sounds muffled because of the valves. Now this setup with no resonators, and the valves sprung open, I give it a solid 10. Obviously my opinion, but at least it sounds like the mean vehicle it should.

Now question 2. Yes, absolutely go to your muffler shop it will be cheaper. I am no where near a muffler shop that will perform modifications to increase exhaust output. The bypass kit was my only option.

Re: Bypass kit? Anyone ever seen something like this?

How do you go about keeping the valves open in the exhaust? Does that do anything bad or good keeping them open? I don't know really what they're for...

I'm heading down to the exhaust shop today or tomorrow so we'l see what they want to do for the $$$. Thanks for your input.

Re: Bypass kit? Anyone ever seen something like this?

There are knobs to rotate the valves open by hand. Once you open them with it idling, it will become immediately apparent what it does for the exhaust note, which is a great part. Nothing bad I notice... 0-60 in 4.5 sec the other day, with all 4 spinning, so no loss in power. Nothing bad happened at all.

You can get them to stay open by rotating like previously stated, then moving the end of the spring two positions. If it doesn't stay open the first time, move the spring end back and go two positions in the other direction. You can do all of this by hand, no tools required. It is also reversible if the urge so suits.

Did you get it done? What do you think?
