X pipe with muffler delete OR Reso delete?
 
help a brother out! i hate to bother but need your collected help! I just bought a 2011 5.7 anniversary edition WK2 and want to hear the hemi but not lose any power/torque. I have read a LOT of stuff so far and need help deciphering dropping the suitcase muffler for a X-pipe or performing a reso delete?Their are TONS written but has anyone done both? Which has the best sound but doesnt lose power/torque?

I had a few WK1 Jeep SRT8's and learned quickly that after a ton of time and playing the stock exhaust performed extremely well. The only thing that was CLOSE but louder was an X pipe where stock muff was and super 44's at the back where the Reso's were BUT it was aggressive.... I would LOVE to have someone's experience keep me from wasting a lot of time on the WK2.

TEACH ME! Will be getting a CAI and Diablo tune in a few months.

Pm ed you but I was going to add that both Summit and Jets makes x pipe kits that are very easy to work with on just about anything including our WK2's!

Thx everyone. I had bought the Lawson industries x pipe and used on my SRT8 wk1 paired with flow super 44's and they were awesome. I am going to try using the stock reso's with the x pipe then add flowmaster super 50 or dynomax super turbo if the stock reso's aren't deep enough..

UPDATE - Had the Xpipe installed, muff removed and left the stock reso's. The sound is more of a higher pitched sound but much better than stock. At WOT its very tinny. A great temporary mod for me but ordered a set of the Super 50 series and will have installed where the resos are and advise. Their was a little increase in performance. The Xpipe is definitely a great addition and sounds nice as long as you dont like to go at full throttle but i personally like a deeper sound.

What x-pipe did you go with? Do you have a sound clip?

The Lawson industries 66925. i have used it a few times now on different vehicles. Works very well. Here is the link below.

Amazon.com: Lawson Industries 66925 Stainless Steel Stamped X-Pipe: Automotive

No sound clip. Everyone's mic's are so tough to decipher the sound from. Here is the one from "bumpinjeep".

returned yesterday from having the Reso's replaced with the Dynomax Super Turbo 17733's ($40 each) and 4" Pro Elite stainless steel resonator tips ($20 each). They look and sound amazing. Remember this is removing the stock muff and reso's and replacing with the X-pipe and above muffs and tips. Total spent with replacing all with 2.5" pipe was $300. with update with pictures later today. Here is a good video representing the sound. Sounds awesome outside and has an excellent inside rumble and most importantly NO interior drone.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGslaIz-3i8
