Exhaust Help
 
So right now on my wj v8 i have flowmaster 40 and new tip but all stock tubing. Do you think its worth me getting all new tubing, like 3"?

I would advise against it unless you are going forced induction. The engine requires a certain amount of back pressure to optimum performance. The stock piping is 2 1/2". That is more than plenty of breath-ability for a naturally aspirated engine. if you are looking to gain more power try putting in a high flow cat for better breath-ability. I am running a high flow cat and a flow master 10 series with 2 1/2" piping.

Chris your front end looks awesome finished. Let me know when you may have an extra set so I can do mine like that.

The car geek in me has been following the 4.7 since it was introduced. Over and over dyno results have proved that the best exhaust combo for a modded 4.7 or the 4.7 HO is a 3" exhaust. Would you notice a difference in an upgrade from 2.5"? Likely not if you are not loaded with mods.

IMO - you money would be better spent somewhere else. A Superchips tuner or a custom tune would be a bonus. I have not done the SC on my WJ but ran one on my 4.7 Ram - it made worlds of difference, especially the transmission tune feature paired with the 91 octane engine tune. The trans tune paired with the "tow" tune was also very nice - it was designed for maximum torque which was helpful in a 5k lb truck.
