So the dual exhaust actually does benefit and the removed it from anything lower than an overland.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

I always thought there would be a difference based in factory engine ratings. 283hp is the starting point for a 3.6 in the basic models with single exhaust. Minivan and charger. The jeep was 290 running on the same octane gas. Where did the 7hp come from. What about the challenger at 305 on premium. Does the challenger have anything else different other than the premium gas tune? Is the minivan any different other than the single exhaust?

It's tuned hotter, dual exhaust and a slightly different intake

3.6 is not significantly bigger than the Mercedes 3.5. If you look at the engines HP/liter it's pretty even across the board. I'm not seeing where American cars are using giant 6 cylinders to come close to the European cars. BMW 3.0 at 255hp is right in line with the Mercedes 3.5 at 302 and the jeep is not far off with 290. The jeep is tuned to run in regular and E85 though. Take a look at the Challenger and it's right on par with the Germans. The Chevy and Ford offerings are at even higher power levels. American manufacturers are also starting to lead the industry in 4 cyl. Engines as well. Take a look at the new Focus RS.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

I don't care about all the specs. IMO the dual chrome pipes out the back look a lot better then the single. I'm sure most Jeep owners here would agree on that!

Since this thread started now whenever I see another Jeep i'm looking at the exhaust

Yep, that's why I went with the HA and not another Overland. I couldn't stand the white stitching on the steering wheel.

Challenger 3.6 runs on 87 octane. Right from 2015 owners manual.
