No. They were like the change from 8-4 cylinders is not noticeable. :lol:

LOL. I don't remember it when I didn't have exhaust... but once I got the cat-back on it was like night and day.

Yeah, it's very smooth with a std exhaust, but night/day with a system. But we all knew that would be the case huh :)

Ha! The picture/clip of the 4.7 v8 was in a WJ not a WK cause it had an HO and the intake was on the drivers side not the pass side.

I tend to notice useless things like that.


Like in the movie Twister, they switch between a 1500 ram and a 2500 ram and you can only tell because of the larger 8 lug hub on the 2500 in some scenes.

He forgot to mention that to get that 21mpg highway you need less than a 1/4 tank of gas, no cargo, be going less than 60 mph and be driving in the flatlands

I'm glad I'm not the only person who noticed that. ;)

HOWEVER...

I never noticed a switch from 8 cylinders to 4 cylinders in my aunt's 300C. She didn't either, just enjoyed the fuel economy. Maybe it's different for the WK.
