Exhaust and System

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Happy Holidays. I have been thinking of an entire exhaust system replacement to include headers.

BORLA T-304 Stainless Steel Header for 00-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with 4.0L I-6 Engine

BORLA T-304 Stainless Steel Cat-Back™ System for 00-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ with 2.5L I-4 & 4.0L I-6 Engines

These two items are available at Quadratec but it seems that together, it will cost me nearly $900 for the complete set.

My question is, would this be a good way to go or should I go with something cheaper from a different website? Any advice and or information would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Vin

My friend has that exact setup on his 06. Not impressed at all, it's too quiet and for some reason he keeps getting exhaust leaks off the head and at the cat-back. Dealership installed and fixed every time too. I wouldn't bother, but that's just me.

I would just leave the factory header and take it to a custom exhaust shop.

Put your money into a locker or something for the trail...stock exhaust for jeep engines is good enough.

For $125 you can get a flowmaster 55 plus, I think it is. Sounds great. Anything else just drains your wallet, no real improvement.

Don't waste you're money on your wrangler exhaust system. You will see little improvement, and it's essentially for pure aesthetics. There are much better mods out there that are worth you're time, even if you aren't into off roading.

Well I think I will take all of your advice. I want to do some sort of exhaust work so I think the idea of eliminating the headers from my originally idea would be a good idea. I would like to put something on there to give me a bit of a throatier sound. I think by the spring I am going to put some lift into the rig but that will wait until about March / April.

MBRP makes a good exhaust system that you might like that is not terribly expensive. I have it on mine and I love it
