Exhaust for no power loss

Whats up guys, I have read numerous posts on exhaust questions and concerns about removing certain parts and losing power. I have a quick question because I feel like I've read people say contradicting things so I was hoping someone could clear it up for me.

So....I am looking into getting a new exhaust for my 14 SRT, but I do not want to lose any power or throw a CEL. So, what should I do to keep all my power but change the sound. I love the GT Haus sound, but I hear people have lost power with that system. What do you guys recommend getting so I don't lose any power?

Should I get the GT Haus catback and x pipe or will I lose power. Or should I just get the GT Haus catback and keep the "suitcase". I have heard people say they lost back pressure when removing the suitcase which made them lose power. But I have also heard that the factory catback is really good and should not be changed, just the suitcase should be changed. So I'm really confused.

Someone help me out!

No one has confirmed with data that we are losing power with any cat-back exhaust, its all seat of the pants feel... That being said, I feel like my SRT is slightly slower with the GT Haus opened vs closed mode but have not been able to confirm it with any objectionable data. Sure you could do 0-60 times, but then you are introducing other variables such as traction, transmission shifts, etc...

Ultimately, it should come down to your taste in how you are wanting your Jeep to sound.

Re: Exhaust for no power loss

i agree, unless you go to the drag strip regularly you won't notice the power loss for everyday driving. it will still put a smile to your face, just depends on what sound you want. other solution, get whatever exhaust you want then add a supercharger or turbo

Re: Exhaust for no power loss



Anyone have any sound clip videos of the MRT Exhaust? Or any opinions on it?

Re: Exhaust for no power loss

If you want the absolute best system for the jeep then get the GTHaus. I love mine and it's always been my favorite mod

Re: Exhaust for no power loss

I went with the Kooks exhaust. It comes with Xpipe and catback. Well made stuff, the fitment was tricky, but not too bad. I love the sound and I feel like I have increased some power. The selling point to me is I got the exhaust for 1k shipped for the Xpipe and cat back. I liked the GT haus but the price is just stupid high.

Re: Exhaust for no power loss

I agree.. the GThaus price is really high and the kooks system seems to be a great bang for the buck.. still haven't made my decision yet but very interested to hear if anyone has done the GThaus xpipe and kept the stock mufflers and tips

Re: Exhaust for no power loss

for a less expensive alternative take a look at Mufflex, under $350, looks good, 5 inch SS tips, and good sound with no drone......Haven't noticed any change in performance either....

Stainless Works makes some affordable stuff too. Should look into it.
