SRT Exhaust Help!?!?

I have a 2014 Jeep SRT. I recently removed the suitcase and replaced it with an "X" pipe. I left to factory resonators in the back alone. The SRT sounds about the same as before, performs better though. I want to get a better sound without losing performance. What can/should I replace the back resonators with that won't cause me to lose power (due to loss in back pressure) ? Has anyone done this? Would two magnaflow S mufflers be ok?

I run an Xpipe and Borla Atak tips. Very loud, but no performance gain or loss IMO.

Re: SRT Exhaust Help!?!?

The rear black housings are actually mufflers not resonators (behind the rear tires where the tips connect)...iI thought they were resos too. I chopped them off and now need to get a high flow X pipe and (sounds like what you did). Can you post some pics? Here are the mufflers I took out...kept stock tips (I like the look)

Thx, looks good. Never thought it would fit a v6 so I'm more optimistic now for sure

Re: SRT Exhaust Help!?!?

With this setup do you have cabin drone? I have the Atak setup coming from two Flowmaster resonators straight back to the Atak. My girl hates the drone. Borla tech said that only the stock resonators will illuminate the drone. What do you think?

Re: SRT Exhaust Help!?!?

I put a couple Magnaflows on my 2015 SRT and it sounds a little better than stock at idle and at low RPMs. When I open it up it's sounds much better - Throatier with better throttle response. CAI is next. Check out the photos. You can see I left the resonator in place.

:thumbs: hopefully I did this right so you can actually see photos.
Please let me know if you can't see them.
