Exhaust Systems
 
I'm thinking about replacing my exhaust system, and I have been considering the Borla. Does anybody have any suggestions on this, and how much does replacing the exaust system generally cost? Thanks for your help...

I got a local shop fab one with a cherry bomb one chamber off road muffler for $300. It might be cheaper and easier for you to just go to a muffler shop.

Look at Quadratec, they have about any bolt on system they make. But like Kilcrease said you might save some money at a local shop.

If this is just your typical cherry bomb...thats pricey. Cherry bombs cost all of like 30 dollars from your local autozone.

I have the the Banks monster cat back on my jeep and love it...my buddies and I did the install ourselves so I cant tell you how much putting one in is gonna cost you.

Well the muffler itself was like 80 which was a little overcharged but the rest was between the piping and the labor they charged.

Does installing an aftermarket exhaust on a 4.0 really improve MPG and HP???

I'm sure that it will do better than the stock exhaust that's for sure. Most of the aftermarket exhaust use piping a 1/2 inch to an inch bigger than stock, that will allow more emissions to exit the vehicle quicker, then allowing more power to you, so I would say more HP and less MPG if you have a heavy foot, and more MPG if you take it nice and easy.
