Muffler or Catback System???

I want to let my WK breathe a little better so should i get an entire catback or would a muffler suffice?

Entire catback most definitely. Get a stainless catback so it wont rust/etc but they use better bends for better flow in some catbacks, all in all theyre a better high flow exhaust than just a muffler.

Re: Muffler or Catback System???

Well i've looked at Gibson and Magnaflow and mufflers seem to do nothing but enhance the sound, so I'm thinking catback...

You are probably right on that one. Maybe look at intakes or other mods like window tint, stereo to feed the mod bug.

Does anybody here own a 3.7 with any type of catback exhaust system?

Re: Muffler or Catback System???

Like it would sound like a normal exhaust, but it would be loud?? That's like the exact opposite of what I would have thought...

Seems like the SRT8 takeoff exhaust with no resos would be nice.
