jadampowell just spoke with mbrp and they said it moves over about 2-3 inches...they recomend gettimg their heat shield which mounts in the old holes of the evap canister and goes between the evap canister and the new muffler.....sounds easy enough

JIMBOX I didn't relocate my Evap, course I used a flowmaster 40 instead of MBRP (which are great)

I just had to angle the inside pipe to miss the evap !!



I don't know the measurements of the MBRP, but the Flowmaster cat-back is 9" x 13"

thaduke2003 As for damage, the ignition maps are still pretty conservative. As long as you're not a moron, and run the 93 octane map on 86-7 octane, you'll be fine. Towed with mine, and wheeled the piss out of it- no problems.

Also, if something ever DID happen, you can un-flash it, and bring it in with raised palms and the dumb look on your face

As for wires, I have the Granatelli. No real noticable difference except in color. Maybe 0.25 MPG that I can attribute to them, and NO power gain at all. Top end IS noticably smoother, but I can't say anything for power- Mark W.

On an autotrans, that is.

I just did the 91 octane tune from the 87; I'm running Costco 93 octane fuel.
Boy howdy.

mpgs are up, more than compensating the difference in price. No ping at all and it is just so smooth now in the hills.

I'm thinking of road-tripping to Flashpaq to hug somebody.

DelRocini Anyone try high performance wires? If you can increase the gap to .65 it must run cleaner. Will they work with the superchip flashpaq?

That seems to sum up the basic view from a lot of folks: Anything that doesn't work big changes is ineffective (Jet Chips), whereas anything that works big changes is damaging (Flashpaq). Frankly, that makes a good deal of common sense. If a change is simple, harmless, and low cost, the vehicle would probably be designed that way in the first place. I lack the expertise, however, to know if this is truly a good rule of thumb.

Davidsjeep And about the Banks CAI And Exhaust being pricy I agree, I could have gotten a magna flow for a fraction of the cost but I wanted a straight through exhaust, but not so loud that you could never talk while driving. I'm happy with it.

thaduke2003 ^ Hmm... bummer. Check eBay, maybe? I know I'm not giving mine up! Mark W.
11-01-2010 02:13 PM
phottomatt Well they do show up on the web site but when I called they did not have any in stock anywhere and the salesman said that they were discontinuing them so IDK. Too bad, they are a good deal.

In truth, with the manual transmission allowing liberal downshifting, I'm happy with what I have (and perhaps should leave well enough alone). I'm just looking for future options if I feel like giving it a boost.

Unlike most exhausts, it won't catch rocks unless you're doing it very wrong Mark W.
I looked into the Edelbrock, they don't sell them for the JK anymore. I'm sure with the correct tool and space you can fashion up anything though.

Davidsjeep Hey MTH,

Last Monday I Got my 2010 Rubicon, Awesome vehicle, Absolutely love it. The day I knew I was for sure going to get this one I ordered a Banks Ram Air CAI, and a Banks Monster Muffler. I got the two for $640 w/ free shipping From XDP Banks Power Stinger System 3.8L ... Installed myself, the CAI took 20 minutes, the exhaust 2 hours. the two together make my Wrangler so much better, it has a little more power, a little better mpg. The feel that you get when you start it up and drive it is great. In Banks own words; The exhaust note is authoritative, yet civil. It is the quietest straight through muffler that I know of, when you're cruising it is not loud at all, when you want to really give it power it sounds great.
I highly recommend getting the Banks Stinger system!!!
10-31-2010 04:42 PM
MTH Wow--$20k? That makes a near $50k Wrangler without any other mods at all! My 3.8L is looking better and better, at least for the half decade or so . . . .

Thanks for the input folks, as always.

JIMBOX YUP, you can sell your engine/tranny for a couple thou !!

AEV will charge you 20K to swap your 3,8L and they'll use Chryslers 5.7/6.1 Hemi and new 5spd auto--new everything-or

Do it yourself for 10/12K--not an easy job, unless you have them doit !!

thaduke2003 ^ Swap in a Hemi, re-gear, or live with the 3.8L. Some have gone the supercharging route, but the fuel/ignition controller is still just a piggyback that occasionally doesn't allow full power for no apparent reason. Not exactly the ideal, in my book- Mark W.

There is a torque loss down low (under 3,500 RPM), and maybe 1-4 WHP gain up top (over 4,500 RPM). NOT worth the $500+ you'll spend!

As for improved fuel economy, MAYBE 1/4 MPG. Again, NOT worth the $500+.

The ONLY reason to change out the exhaust is to gain clearance. That's why I did mine. As for the intake, only if you're running a snorkel Mark W.

thaduke2003 ^ Not a fan of moving that much weight further outboard in the vehicle. I like not having all the weight on the right side, but further to the back is not good for handling. Not my style- Mark W.

Speaking of moving the exhaust for clearance, have you seen the new Genright auxiliary fuel tank for the JKs?
Very sweet but very very very pricey. I gotta hit the lotto.



Oh. Don't do an intake unless you put a Hemi in first.
Get a nice snorkel or reagear or something.
10-30-2010 02:43 PM
svfdjw@hotmail.com Intake and exhaust will give you more power....if you add headers and a dyno tune. Otherwise if you want a faster jeep just take the doors, top, and backseat out. zoom
