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

I can't believe there won't be any drone with that. I had put flowmasters mufflers on mine that were pretty much a straight pipe. Did not like the sound when the MDS kicked in on the interstate. Could make you kinda nuts after a while. I'm happy with the Borla.

I am going to try it, I will let everyone know how it goes. That is, if I can get them to ship to an APO.

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

OK got them on and here is my review...

They are excellent! The MDS noise is, if you can believe it, maybe less than factory. There is plenty of sound putting around town to know something is done, and when you get on it, the thing sounds soooo good. It finally sounds like a full fledged V8, and the new Jeep is so sound deadened there isn't an ounce of drone.

The hardest part of the install was the damn exhaust hangars, they are rediculous. Just know that your factory exhaust is going nowhere unless you spend an hour and your forearm strength to get them off...

Big suggestions for a do-it-yourselfer: a sawzall (I used the chain cutter and it took forever...), a flashlight (exhaust hangars are up in the bumper, behind the huge mufflers), some spray lubricant, and try your best to have access to a lift (had one and it helped a lot).

The last part, as I ran out of time, is to align them. The kit is very manageable, and it will only take a bit of maneuvering to get it right.

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

Ok back after a couple hundred miles. At every highway speed up to 90 the mds mode is less pronounced than factory, don't ask me how. Man this jeep sounds mean at wot! Still loving them.

Any reason this wouldn't work for a 5.7? Does the 6.4 have a larger diameter exhaust?

Pretty sure 5.7 has 2.5" and 6.4 has 2.75". I would've gone to the exhaust shop and had them replaced with pipe for less but I am in Germany. Go see what a muffler shop charges, and you will be good to go.

A video for how much better it sounds. 4.8 0-60 still, maybe a 1 MPG increase??? and no CEL's.
