Looks and sounds great, another forum member Tnadanzig is working on additional mods (intake, new turbo, etc)
for our model. If you don't have a tune yet go with Green Diesel Engineering. It will complement the I take and exhaust nicely. Great job so far, I got a 2008 Overland over a year ago and love it!

I was looking into that Green diesel tune, I think that'll be my next and probably final Mod. Just need to justify the $700 :/

About 1 second (7.4) faster with the eco tune and 1.5 (7.0) second faster with the Hot-tune
HP is 240-255 and TQ is 440-455 according to GDE data. Hot tune is much more agressive and mpg's actually increase 1-3 vs 2-4 with the Eco-tune.

Interesting. Before the intake I clocked my best 0-60 at around 7.8

turbo is abit louder but the exhaust sounds the same as mine which to me isnt loud enough lol
i wish i could hear my turbo more but like i said before, he kept the stock tubing which is just a bad idea in my book

The tubing coming off of the turbo to the MAF sensor isn't really restricting air flow. the air box is. But i'm sure some if not most of the people on here will argue that you don't need more air going in and that it is a complete waste of time and money. The video really doesn't do justice to how loud the intake is. it's LOUD

Congrats on the new CRD! It still turns heads in parking lots when I start it ("is that a diesel?") I've had mine about two months now and have already GDE Eco tuned it, and put an MBRP exhaust on it, and the DPF won't be far behind-especially after paying 7.75/quart for Mobil 1 ESP M this last weekend! And I'm REALLY considering a rear end 3.07 swap out-just need some more real time towing stories from folks with it. You're in the right place here, and reading about swirl motor and EGR problems as well as the mpg gains should make that GDE tune expenditure more palatable...

Did they just straight pipe your turbo resonator? I don't have the kidney bean either, just the round canister-ain't opened it up yet...

Thanks for the response Fordt. Yeah lucky for us we just have the canister. Much easier to remove the resonator. It's really easy and helps open up the turbo a bit. When you open it up. The resonator will slide right out. As if the factory knew you'd be removing it. Nothing is holding it into place at all, they just slipped it into the canister.

Cool, so you just gut it! After doing an oil and fuel filter change this weekend, I noticed the resonator there, seems like it'd be easy to do, especially from underneath with the plastic belly cover removed...

Yes sir. That is exactly how I did it. Removed that plastic plate. Grabbed a screw driver, put a hex head on it. Unscrewed the 4 screws that hold the two plates together. Then it slid right out. Screwed them back together. Good to go

Now on a side note... Is it relatively easy to do an oil change on my own VS taking my Jeep to the dealer? Cheaper? Pros, cons?

my local exhaust shop didn't have a mandrel bender so they said the MBRP exhaust is the best choice, versus a build like yours. I wish I had a shop that could build it on the spot too.

funny you mention the noise of your aftermarket CAI, I did a test once where I removed the lower half of the stock airbox and secured the standard air filter to the top half of the stock airbox. This setup was significantly more noisey than the complete stock airbox, I didn't notice any seat-of-the-pants increase in performance.

I haven't noticed much performance gain. Surprisingly already noticed MPG gain though. Been getting 22.5 city. Best I have gotten is 28 highway on a long trip. But that was just before the intake was put in. I'm thinking that putting the sock on the cone will help with filtration significantly. Will get those people saying that K&N filters are horrible for my Jeep off my back and give me better piece of mind

do you mind telling us how much your exhaust system cost? the 3" stainless MBRP system including removal of the old system and install of the new system is probably around $500.

by the way, my plan is to install my new Snow Performance water/meth pump and controller under the stock airbox because it will be well hidden.
