WK2 SRT8 Center Exhaust

Something I have noticed, which is good news, is that a center exhaust actually will be pretty easy to do. Look at this pic:



The exhaust is already running in the center and the rear body work is just a diffuser by the exhaust. Someone will inevitably make a new diffuser with only a center opening. Then just route some new pipe to it...easy. Of course, this will only work if you don't option for the trailer hitch.

The diffuser will be similar to this. All of the new srt products are doing diffusers like this in order to accommodate aftermarket exhausts. It is a separate piece which will make the center exhaust mod rather easy on the Jeep.

Re: WK2 SRT8 Center Exhaust

Wow, when you consider the cost of the new exhaust plus the new lower valance that ends up being a lot of money to spend with absolutely no performance return on your investment. Each to his or her own I guess. I'd rather spend the 2 grand on making it go faster or corner better.......

$2k!!! Well a custom rear valence with a cutout could be had or should be had for no more than say $400-$600 realistically? Maybe not right away but at some point, prices will come down like all aftermarket markets. And the custom exhuast fabbing? Thats another $200 or so at any decent exhuast shop, as mentioned, the exhuast is already in the center so it just need to be hacked at mid portion and new tube ran back with some nice tips Total investment, no more than say $800 MAX. I wouldnt spend any more than that at least. Now if we're talking CF, thats another story!

Actually he is probably correct in the 2K department.

Paint, body work, exhaust, etc etc. Itll easily be around that for custom work.

Your hardly lucky to buy exhausts for 500-600 bucks.

Re: WK2 SRT8 Center Exhaust

There is no bodywork. The rear diffuser should not be body colored, it should be a flat black. Being that it is separate and removable, your average joe should be able to install it on there own. The diffuser should cost no more than $400. At $400, there is a nice profit margin, however, they will probably charge $500...just a hunch.

Routing some pipe to two exhaust tips 2 feet will cost no more than $400 including the tips. It will be a sub $1,000 mod. We aren't talking about a full new exhaust system. It will basically be similar to a resonator delete mod work wise.
