I was once on a similar quest. This is the thread that I started on that journey. Exhaust opinions

I am still very satisfied and happy with that exhaust system.

While its not overly loud, it sounds amazing and i love rowing the gears. Banks monster exhaust. Quiet at idle, little rumble driving around town, and perfect roar when gassing it. You will love it. Also keeps the stock resonator to keep the drone down.

The decision on exhaust was probably the most difficult one I made. I was really afraid of buying something I didn't like.

When you're reading comments on drone, pay attention to what they're driving. I noticed in the comments and youtube videos that various exhausts may sound different from auto to manual. From the videos I watched, the auto seems to like shifting early and hanging in one RPM range unless you do the make-believe manual thing.

I have a Dynomax Rock Crawler which removes the resonator and have a pretty easy time keeping it out of the annoying range w/6 speed. It drones around 1000-1200, is loud around 3000-3200, but settles nicely anywhere else in between and higher in the rev range.

Running the Evo Comp version and agree with the drone range on a 3.8L automatic. I've been thinking of adding the extra piping so it dumps out the rear to get rid of some of the drone, and if that wasn't enough, add a VT exhaust.

I'm leaning towards the Monster...which number should I be buying. I've seen the 53800 and the 51313.

I'm in the same boat right now. Leaning towards the dynomax EVO comp that dumps forward of the rear axle.

getting mixed messages as to whether or not it will work on a 2 door. Still researching.

Did some calling around today on the Dynomax 39522 and for the most part got the answers I expected. As Matt stated, Dynomax told me it was only for a 4-door. Also, Quadratec's site says it's only for a 4-door.

However, I called 4 Wheel Parts and JEGs, both of whose sites did not list compatability in regards to door count. Both reps I spoke with said that since their site didn't say it wouldn't work for a 2-door, I could order and return if for some reason it didn't work. I'm just trying to cover my butt and ensure I can return if need be.

Thus far I'm looking at ordering from JEGs as they have it listed for $188 w/ free shipping.

I got a Flowmaster 40 series installed on mine. Nice rumble when driving and doesn't sound too ricey whenever I get the RPMs up. Only cost me 140$ installed so it was worth it for me

Easier said than done. Per Matt, it will work on a 2-door but the reps can't tell me that as there were issues with this install due to user error.

They decided it was easier to just say it won't fit a 2-door, rather than simply point out that the pipe has to be shortened. Not sure why they took this approach, but oh well.

As far as options for the 3.8, I think this is the best-sounding I've heard.

I never hear anyone talk about this one, but it sounds great, and the new one with the black top looks amazing.

Barmanvarn, I have the 39524, which is the same as the Evo except it exits out the back. The issue I can imagine is the hanger location on the 2 door vs. 4 door.

If you're sure you want an exhaust that dumps ahead of the rear axle, I don't think there is any reason you couldn't cut the 39524 right behind the forward pipe hanger and put a turndown on it. I guess cost could be an issue since you're ditching almost half the exhaust.

Cost is pretty different in the two. I talked with Barman via PM and another thread, and I personally haven't seen this on a 2012- 2 door yet... When we do a system for 99.9% it is truly a bolt on system. Just spray the stock hangers/bolts remove the old and install the new.

One thing I always suggest when looking at an exhaust system is to save your stock system and try ours first.

I have a 2DR 09 manual and just installed the banks. I'm very happy with the sound and quality of the product. It is the cat-back system. It is noticeable at idle and sounds pretty good at about 3500 RPM.

I recently removed the rear muffler and had a shop clamp on a pipe that extended out the back and has a hangar welded on. Now I can switch between stock setup and straight pipe. I mostly did it for more clearance off-road. I still have the resonator and cats. It has a nice rumble at low rpm, and will give a nice sound of straight pipes up to about 3.5k rpm then after that it sounds just like it does stock after 3.5k rpms. A local shop will probably run you around $50.
