Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

Sure I'm going to sound like a dick but someone needs to say it. If you are driving a WK2 and cannot afford to easily purchase one of the numerous incredibly affordable exhausts for it, perhaps you should buy something different. I cringe when I see the cost cutting, ghetto rigged, things people do to these.

Go out and buy a real exhaust! You can get a Borla for $650 shipped, keep your valves, and lose absolutely no power.

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

Actually cost does have something to do with the SRT and exhausts. There has been no real evidence that full exhausts and such are giving major changes to horsepower and torque in the SRT. Very little real world Dyno figures from before and after. It's more to do with cosmetics and how they sound....

I wanted a GTHaus system for my jeep, but at nearly 5k here in Australia, that's a shitload of coin for very little gain. I went with a set of Mufflex Mufflers for 10% of the GTHaus system delivered to Oz. The other money has now been put to use upgrading the suspension and a SC which will both provide better value for money well and truly in the end, compared to a pretty sounding expensive exhaust system. Just my 2cents.

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

But when u mash it and the guy next to you cant hear his engine hitting rev limiter is priceless.... You have no idea the looks on there faces ive done it too mates and a Lamborghini gallardo last week. Never let a Jeep SRT with GT Haus pull away from you or sit behind it at the lights as they punch it, the sound is deafening...

Loud pipes are fun and having had plenty of rides with loud pipes over the years, I know exactly what your talking about I will be taking my jeep through the Polly Farmer tunnel over here, once I fit the Mufflex Mufflers.

I'm shied away from the GTHaus in the end because of 3 reasons. Cost and perceived lack of performance gain, Cop Bait and running a SC as well will attract attention and lastly, I'm expecting to keep this SRT for a long time and I don't want that serious loud pipe in the background.

Why not just get a good aftermarket exhaust system??
The borla system looks nice, and sounds nice too.

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

The mufflex system is a good system, keeps most of the factory system, gives a nice boost in sound output, easily installed, and very cost effective,... Whats not to like, and $300.... Is far better than double that or more.... Oh yea, no drone also��....

Will this work in the 5.7 or only the 6.4?

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

I've removed the resonators and kept the original Shrek ear tips and don't have this problem at all. Looks factory. The sound is much better at all ends. The grumble when I slow down and the growl at WOT is quite satisfying. I've never experienced the rattling of valves and my fuel economy has improved, however slightly.

Performance is the same if not better. More responsive all over. I haven't done an 'official' 0-100 but my last was before the mod at 4.3 secs so I hope to shave at least a tiny bit off of that. I do get a bit of a fart at WOT but I reckon that's because the exhaust just isn't large enough to accommodate all of the exhaust gas in such a short amount of time.

I tend to drive in Sport mod most of the time, maybe that has something to do with it because the valves are never engaged.

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

Just an opinion, if I'm not wrong, the valves in the exhaust system are just butterfly valves operating by nothing but spring tension, so driving mode makes absolutly no difference as they work solely by force of the exiting exhaust pressure against them... More pressure more opening, less preasure less opening..... The greater the acceleration or rpm the more pressure
created by the engine exhaust..... During deceleration, less exhaust preasure is created so the valves close more as there is less pressure to over come their spring tension..... These exhaust system valves are not connected either electricly, or mechanically to any other system components, they are totally independant and operate solely from existing exhaust system pressures

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

I chopped my mufflers off my 2014...kept stock reso...down to 4.3 0-60mph from 4.4 prior. Haven't done one since I added my aFe Intake so hopefully that is in the 4.2 range now. That would make me very happy

Sound without mufflers is better than stock. I do not have rattles and shaved 40+ pounds off the rear, have NO drone and at WOT it sounds like a beast compared to stock. Just my 0.02. I plan to get a high flow reso from Magnaflow.

MPG's has increased...I can now get 21.8 mpg's @ 72mph (it was well below 20.6 consistently on same trips/speeds)
