exhaust again?

I know the forum has discussed how an aftermarket exhaust For the Jeep WK Diesel has little to no gain. Update on the Magnaflow, they are making a DPF back 3 1/2" (not 3") mandrel bent tubing with a muffler. So my question is MBRP makes a DPF back 3" Tubing with no muffler. So bigger tubing with muffler or smaller tubing without muffler? Any thoughts?

Re: exhaust again?

i just added a Dynomax stainless system to my 07. i dont think i gained anything as far as power or sound went it does get the exhaust past the vehicle so that when i sit at a light i dont get the exhaust in the cabin.

I gutted the dpf and cat and removed the rear muffler, fitted a nice tip and did the GDE upgrade. My CRD now sounds awesome, you can hear the V6 rumble, my friend says it sounds like a 360 Modena under full throttle....

Re: exhaust again?

You got no lights after gutting the cat? You should get a video if you can!

Also did you go with the hot tune or the eco tune?

Hi peeps. I had the ECO tune and now run the HOT tune. Had a guy ask me the other day if it is a V8 diesel. No lights with the cat gutted. Will post a video over the weekend.

Rainer, that would be very interesting and cool.

Since I've ordered the new GC '14 Diesel here in Switzerland, I' very amused about 'tuning-tips' for the Diesel engine.

That would be awesome to hear. How is the power on the HOT tune vs the ECO tune? Is it even worth getting the ECO tune? What's your mileage comparing the two? Thanks Rainier!

Your 2014 GC Diesel is not a Mercedes diesel so these tunes will not work with your vehicle.

Re: exhaust again?

I prefer to keep the emissions control systems in working order, so I still have the cat and dpf on my '07. However, when I put the 3" MBRP kit on, I did get better economy and smoother sifting. My wife really noticed it, but did not object to it being a bit louder.

The factory exhaust on the WK CRD is actually pretty good, so improvements are subtle.

the GDE Eco Tune was by far the biggest upgrade, but the MBRP exhaust is visible and adds a nice touch

Hey Rainier, did you ever get a video? Have you had any problems with excessive diesel smell?
