PostSubject: My turn for an exhaust question.    My turn for an exhaust question.   I_icon_minitimeApril 30th 2012, 6:02 pm

alright, so here it goes... Ive got some money (taxes) that I want to use on a new exhaust system (Cat-back) for the Charger. I think I have decided on getting the JBA cat back (part number 40-1602 from their website). I have a few questions though. For starters, I know that Ray (Razor) has had a few issues with his JBA mufflers. Im wondering what other people have to say about JBA quality. Im figuring, for the price, I can go either custom pipe with my own mufflers (was thinking flowmaster Super 40's), or just a bolt on (im going the bolt on route with JBA). Both options give me the sound im looking for, both around $600. I can't see the justification in spending nearly $1500 for the Corsa either. To put it simply, everyone over on LX or the Z has their own opinion but there are so many posts, it makes it hard to weed through the bullshit, and come to a decision. Which is why I come to the CAMM family for this. Im thinking JBA, but Im open to hear some other suggestions, or other options for roughly the same price. Cut outs aren't something I want to do yet, so no cut-outs. Another thing, I havent found any good exhaust tips to replace the shitty stock ones on the car... anyone know of something? Thanks in advance!!

Sorry bro, never had or no anyone who had Jba cat back. Why JBA, is it just for sound, if so how do they sound, or what sound are you looking for. If it's a nice mellow sound and it opens up to a nice rumble when you get on it, I would say Magnaflow. I know Magnaflow comes with new tips that I believe you can choose from. As soon as they come out with the oval tips I will be ordering the cat back for my 300.

pretty much what you said about sound, which is where the choice of JBA came from. It had a really good sound, and the thing i hate most is that "reed" sound. Magnaflow doesnt have the rumble im looking for. It sounds like there is cotton stuffed inside the muffler. Which is where the Flowmaster Super 40's comes in. Not to mention, the magnaflow exhaust is upwards of $1200. Where exactly is the cost difference between a 600-700 JBA or Flowmaster vs a 1200 or 1500 Magnaflow or Corsa, they are both 2.5" pipes, all systems ive seen are stainless steel... so it ultimately comes down to the mufflers and the sound.

I would go with a cat back. I had a pieced together system before and I took it off and bought a pypes cat back. If you do decide to go with a pieced together system I have my flowmaster super 44s that id sell cheap. Also when I did my JBA headers and cats i was a little disappointed with the quality.

i love my custom setup. talk to Parish at Naperville exhaust works. he has done a couple of our members exhausts including mine. if you want to save money and have high dollar sound that is the way to go. don't buy an off the shelf kit with resonators or some red neck sounding flowmasters.

i paid like 650 installed for all custom bent 3 inch pipe with magnaflow mufflers and double wall stainless magnaflow tips and it sounds better than the off the shelf magnaflow kit.

cat back systems are more than that even before install price.

definately going to go cat-back. The pypes system sounds pretty good, I sorta remember hearing jesse's car at mod night, but id need to hear it again up close (youtube videos arent the best for this). I like Jon's idea of the custom setup. Just need to find a set of mufflers in that case. Which means id actually be back with super 44's (white trash or not, flowmaster has a great sound).

I am still partial to Zoomers they are pricy and you would still need headers and mids.
I can say I have the JBA shortys on the Charger and they are great and look the same as they day they were installed (titanium coated) Just needed to use OEM gaskets and all was good. Got the JBA hig flo cats and they are also great and pass emissions

Tom this morning as i started my car i heard the start of a rattle again so im guessing its the other muffler now that its 4 months old and hoping its not the replacement thats only a few weeks old. Not sure if i can say the slightest good thing about jba

i dont see a zoomers set up for the charger, and yeah, 1500, i might as well go with the corsa, which i dunno, just seems way to high priced for some pipes. Im not doing anything with the headers, those will remain stock right now. The Pypes system sounds good, and the price is great. Jon's custom job is sounding like a great idea too, for basically the same price, all i need to do then is pick the mufflers basically. In which case, id probably get the super 44's because from what i've been hearing through shitty youtube video's, I like the sound a lot. its a quiet, mellow, throaty sound that really opens up to a nice roar, with out the tinny or reedy sound...

When I had my flowmaster 44s I also didn't have resonators on. It had a lot of drone just a heads up. If you want my flowmasters you can have them for $50. Never seen salt but are welded to the rest of the pipes

so, after a little more research, the "horrible" drone that is talked about with a flowmaster system is easily corrected by following the manufacturers install instructions. Flowmaster reccomends the use of an H pipe to eliminate the drone vs our cars X pipe. The H pipe allows for a more balanced flow through the system, and allows the drone frequency to cancel it self out... I have however, decided on going with the Pypes system. The sound is good, and the price is in my range. Going to go with the Violator set up. The only thing I nee to find now then i guess is the tips.... that looks like its going to be a bit of a challenge though, finding a tip that will fit into the rear fascia on the new car.
