3.6 dual exhaust
 
Does anyone know if there is a dual exhaust out for the 3.6L 2012 wk2? i've tried searching and talking to the dealership about this and can't find anything. thanks.

your best bet is to modify your stock exhaust to work with either an SRT8 takeoff kit or a 5.7 dual kit. The dealerships are useless for this sort of thing.

Have searched and talked to Borla, Bassani and a few others. No plans to make one as of yet. I have talked to a local custom exhaust place http://www.louscustomexhaust.com/products.html they can bend and hang a custom dual config for approx $900

My issue is I'm trying to finnd the part number for the lower back valance/skirt from a 2012 WK2 for the Hemi that will give me the two cutouts for the exhaust tips.

The Durango Heat model which only comes with a V6 has dual exhaust. Of course, it does have a longer wheelbase so that might affect a direct fit in a V6 GC. But maybe it would fit from the axle back?

i was told by magnaflow, yesterday, that you would lose low end torque by going from a single exit to a dual exit. so now you gotta decide between looks vs. performance.

Re: 3.6 dual exhaust
 
Yes & No, it is potentially true. One of the biggest mistakes is people go bolting things onto their vehicles and they aren't balanced and aren't designed to work together, many are. Infact some modifications counteract other mods resulting in net/net or losses or unexpected poor performance. When it comes to exhaust systems it's complex but generally dealing with cat or axle back systems that are built for specific applications and vehicles you are ok. They gave you a general answer but, what usually happens if you don't use the proper system you loose (many names/terms used by some) Back Pressure, improper flow and this can reduce torque. Again, it relly depends on the type of system you install.

My change is going to be custom and after the factory muffler. So I'll have the factory cats, factory muffler and I'll use Borla or Magnaflow resonators the shop is checking into this for me.

But I have to say, I'm intriuged by the post Rexx330 put up. Apparently in that video, a guy directly bolted up a Borla part # 140406 to a 2011 GC Laredo with a 3.6L. I've sent the youtube video poster a message to see if I can get more specifics on what was done. I love the Borla products, rcurrently run them on my stangs. went away from Bassani as they droned on the highway.

Thanks Ants818 I went over to the dealership earlier today and got the part number for the 2012 Overland with a V8 and tow package. 68078318AB gave me a price of $147 + tax, I ordered it today.

well definitely interested in your project, keep us posted.

The V8 kits would be great for anyone looking to do supporting mods. (Intake, throttle body, tuning once available) These manufacturers often stay conservative in their choice of piping diameter.

Re: 3.6 dual exhaust
 
i'm definitely interested in all that but i'm waiting for a tune to come out before i go install intake, throttle body & exhaust. i would have done exhaust sooner but now i have the dilemma of single or dual exit.
