Custom Magnaflow on 5.7 WK Limited

I've had my Jeep for about three years now and I've completed some basic performance mods (K&N intake, throttle body spacer, etc.) I have been researching exhausts for quite some time to see exactly what i wanted for what I wanted to spend. I knew i didn't want an out-of-the box bolt on exhaust kit. After reading posts on here I decided to go with a Magnaflow 4" round muffler (part #10416) and a stainless steel tip from Assured Performance (part #AC1105). I found a local garage that did the install for me for under $50 fully welded. I couldn't be happier with the look and the sound was exactly what I wanted. Perhaps now I can focus on a Predator tuner!

Re: Custom Magnaflow on 5.7 WK Limited

I've been there and those mods all just make noise, with no improved throttle response, and a loss of low rpm torque compared to stock. The K & N is in not a CAI, as it sucks hot air in from under the hood, losing HP after things are up to full temp. First thing to get is get a catch can for your Hemi. Then get a MM 85 mm ported TB, put the stock intake back on, and use that TB spacer as a paperweight.
