Upgrades for exhaust/intake?
Hey guys I'm new here so if this is the wrong section, my bad!
I have a few questions...
What's the best sounding/loud (not super loud) exhaust can you buy for under ~$400? I was looking at the banks monster exhaust (
Can anyone give me some info on it from personal experience or refer another exhaust?
Also is buying an aftermarket intake worth it?
Are there any trail benifeats?
And what other mods can I do to my jeep? (I'm pretty much stock).
And I want loud because I'm 16 and want my jeep to sound alittle more bada$$ :D

Spend the $400 on driving training. No kidding. It will pay for itself and maybe save your life.

Not the stupid basic "driver education", that you have to take in school. REAL training, that you pay for yourself and so you pay attention to it.

Haha... I took my driver Ed online.
You can even take most of the test online now too...
But I'm talking about mufflers and not driving lessons :P
Should I just get a glass pack?

Just save your money trust me when you get older you will regret it. it has no benifits to the performance. use that money for a beefy bumper it will turn more heads.

I'm still sporting the stock exhaust, but have heard great things about the Banks Monster. Strongly considering going this route myself

FYI - don't waste your money on an intake. You most likely wont gain any performance. There's doesn't seem to be any true benefit from what research I've done

janders82 03-26-2013 08:13 AM

Don't listen to the save your money thing. Do what you want! I say get the exhaust! Let me know which kit you decide to go with and how it sounds once you get it installed

I have an aFe cat back that I think sounds good. Its a little louder at medium throttle and gets very loud at WOT. The benefit for me is it moves the muffler under the drivers side and it is not huge.

OP, your 16, I say get the exhaust. I'm 32 and don't have any interest in that anymore but when i was younger I put exhaust or at minimum a muffler on almost all of my vehicles. I would urge against an intake if you plan on taking your Jeep offroad. I put a K&N intake on my Tacoma 4x4 back in the day and I had to clean it after almost every offroad trip. Not worth it IMO, besides the performance gains are minimal at best. My advice for people thinking about an intake is to spend the money on a programmer like Superchips or Bullydog. You will get the extra horsepower and much, much more than an intake can provide.

MagnaFlow Performance "Off Road Pro Series" Exhaust

I have it on my 2dr. Sounds good. Not real load. Great for trailing. I drops off just before the back axel. Keeps it from getting beat the hell out of.

Can't get a new bumper for awhile, I installed a winch onto the stock one and after what I went through to put it on it's not coming off for a long time. :P
And yeah I live in Naples... I'm sure all the old people will love my jeep alittle louder :D
I can't find a flow master for under $400...
And how would you guys go about installing it? Have a shop do it or just do it myself?

just buy a muffler some pipe and clamps or a welder. $50 is a lot cheaper than $400

SubAtomicGenius 03-26-2013 07:17 PM

Two stainless band clamps, a stainless, 20" exhaust, and a finished tail pipe = $140. I bought the Magnaflow SS, same internal volume as the flowmaster, not too loud, works perfect.

Take of the stock POS, put on the tailpipe. Cut 20" from the center of your exhaust line where the muffler will fit, whop it in with band clamps.

Replace the rest of the 2-1/2" lines with stainless as they rot out. Those aftermarket "kits" are over-priced rip-offs and unnecessary, IMHO.
