Borla atak with x pipe install...have ???

Hey fellas. I am doing a xpipe install on my 14 SRT and had a few questions. Anyone have pics on what theirs looks like for install reasons...

Also is there any loss of power (back pressure) or what not

Any cabin drone that is horrible or anything

Any help would be great because it's getting installed tomorrow

My guy is building the xpipe and welding it at his shop. Just want to make sure I'm making the right move. Current exhaust I have right now is the atak.
Thanks boys and merry Christmas

If your going to chop that suitcase muffler and replace it with a straight flow x pipe it's going to be louddddd. I had that set up before I got the longtube headers installed(still sounds the same just more rumble)Yes you will lose some low end torque but gain a little top end. Cabin drone I don't care personally cause it just sounds nasty lol but after 60 or 70 it can get a little annoying if your going on a long trip. I would also use a 2.5 inch piping not 3inch to get some pressure from the xpipe.

I always wondered what positive benefits of having that suitcase muffler were. Thanks for providing insight on this as I don't recall anyone actually attesting to this specifically.

Its not that loud. Only advice i can give is to make sure to leave enough flow through the X. I think it sounds like the gt haus amd everyone thought i had the gt haus till i admitted to not having it.

Re: Borla atak with x pipe install...have ???

I had this setup although I had resonators with the X-pipe. I've had just the ATAK, the ATAK + X-pipe with resonators, and the GTHaus. According to my butt dyno the Jeep made the most power with my custom setup. IMHO I wouldn't run it without resonators. It was loud enough but not obnoxious in the cabin. It also appeared to have the perfect amount of back pressure.

Re: Borla atak with x pipe install...have ???

Can you post some before and after vids of the exhaust sound. Was thinking mufflex and X pipe but it might be too loud for my taste.
