Corsa or Magnaflow?

Please help!

Just purchased a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude.

Looking to update the stock exhaust. Two exhaust kits I've been looking at are;

Magnaflow 19216 Catback and the Corsa 14557.

Any suggestions or other options?

Thanks,

Re: Corsa or Magnaflow?

I had a Magnaflow 16929 that I put on my '15 Limited. Powder coated the tips black and it looked and sounded fairly mean. Got a great deal on it around a holiday sale and it was just a bit more expensive than buying a stock duel exhaust (15 Limited had single exhaust) - thus I pulled the trigger.

II liked it for ~6 months and swore by it. It was loud but no deafening. However, the drone on the highway at 60+ started to get to me a bit. Doing local driving in town was no issue though. Looked into having it removed but ended up trading that Jeep in. Much happier with the quieter HA exhaust right now.

Not sure if that helps, but that's my 2cents

Thanks CrimsonKing. I appreciate your 2cents. I like to hear from personal experiences to make sure I make the right decision or not follow through and save for something else. I use my jeep for heavy comutting and I'm afraid to have the loud drone in the cabin.
Thanks for your feedback. Greatly appreciated

No problem. If you search the threads here, there are lots of posts on exhausts and the pros/cons of many models.

Re: Corsa or Magnaflow?

I too have the altitude and wanted to make it sound better and more aggressive, but don't want it to be too loud. I was thinking maybe just changing the mufflers out? Anyone know if that would be a good medium? And which brands ?

Re: Corsa or Magnaflow?

I have a 2014 Loredo with single exhaust. I would like to change it to dual exhaust. If someone out there has changed to a performance exhaust, I may be willing to purchase the dual system that you took off as long as it fits a 3.6

Did you end up buying an exhaust?

Changing the rear bumper cover is very easy

This is why I haven't pulled the trigger on an exhaust for my limited (dual exhaust). It's almost like an art to finding the right sound for the jeep. There are so many combinations and variables to changing the sound but what I fear the most is spending on that money and getting that dreaded drone issue. I decided to leave it stock and not worry about it.

Re: Corsa or Magnaflow?

I recently installed a Borla catback exhaust system on my 2017 Jeep GC Hemi. It sounds very aggressive at startup, nice burble at idle, and throaty under acceleration. At cruise it settles down with factory like quiet. I chose this setup after listening to the sound clips (search on Youtube) of the Magnaflow, Corsa, and Borla. I am very picky and this turned out to be a great choice. Borla was also the lowest cost, about $1150 delivered and spent $200 on the install at the local Jeep dealership.

Re: Corsa or Magnaflow?

Corsa, all the way baby!! Find the sound clip of Borla vs Corsa on the 5.7 Hemi. The Corsa sounds waaaaay better! No comparison . . .
