Re: Dual exhaust for WK??

I def have to admit, after all the $$ I put into it so far, I hate only having a single pipe out the back.. I know im anal, but its really bugging me now. I saw an M5 today, dual pipes on each side and it was sick.

I'll tell you what I'd luv to do, and have been searching ebay every day now for it. Is get the Limited rear bumper that has the cut out in the middle and re-routing my tail pipe there with dual tips. So it kinda mimics the srt, and its symetrical. The single tip bug me.

Re: Dual exhaust for WK??

I'd say you should go with something less than a 2 inch pipe all the way back and chose a mean exaust tips for it.

Thats what i was thinking of doing if i ever change mine. But you dont need a limited bumper to do it.

All you need is the trim for the cutout. When the dealership installs a trailer hitch they cut the bumper and put the gray plastic trim bezel on to cover the cut edge. You can buy that, (its trimmed out to fit the hitch) you can modify it to be fully open like an srt8 and then do your tips. A guy down the road from me has a v6 laredo with a 2" receiver and the same stock cutout for the hitch. just buy that and your good to go.

Look at this link. just buy the bezel and cut it out your self.

its the same for commander and Wk. But its not cheap.

Re: Dual exhaust for WK??

So now I can buy that trim for 62 bucks, route the tail pipe to the center and get a dual tip. Im sure that wont effect performance since im not adding a whole other tail pipe that way. I was just under the car and its def do-able running the pipe over to the center using the stock hanger thats there. I might even try it myself, go to the auto parts store and buy all the elbows and straight pipe with clamps. Shouldnt be more than 1 bill for everything, the trim and dual tip will cost the most im thinking.

I was just thinking back to my previous 94 GC, that exhaust had so many clamps and sections of pipe from me fixing all the rotted and rusted sections all the time. I even used that muffler repair kit for my cataletic converter that was about to fall off.

Im noticeing what appears to be slight rust at some of the welds on my SS exhaust now, is that normal??? I thought the SS catbacks were not supposed to rust. I only had it on for a few months now, should I be going under and cleaning it once in awhile, or sand it and give it a coat of high temp spray?

Re: Dual exhaust for WK??

They only way to avoid that is to be 100% sure they used stainless steel welding rod and unfortunately thats not always the case. My exhaust is all stainless steel but the welds still rust and they painted them with high temp black paint. i figure by the time it gets bad i will want something new.

My only suggestion for the exhaust, Do a dual output muffler or a Y pipe after the muffler of choice, then stick to a 2.25" pipe or a 2" pipe all the way back so you dont loose any performance from having too big a pipe. then do a set of dual 3" or 4" tips.

Re: Dual exhaust for WK??

I wne to the auto store and bought a bunch of 2.5" straight pipe, some 45's, 90's, and clamps. Im going to try a mock-up under there to see if my idea will work. Cut the tail pipe right after the hanger in the rear and try to get it over to the middle of the bumper where that hitch trim will be cut in. I found a few dual exhaust tips on ebay i think would look good on it.

I did more work on my stereo tonight. Prob saturday I will get under there and see if the pipes will work. If they do i have to order a dual tip before I start cutting into the pipe.
