Intake and exhaust

You know there will be some aftermarket cold air intakes and some nice aftermarket exhausts for the Commander coming out soon. I wonder if any of these type mods will work correctly with the Mulitidisplacement Engine feature on the Hemi?

Re: Intake and exhaust

I've done both and have experienced no problems. I've increased fuel economy and engine response by doing a home made air intake and installing a MAGNAFLOW cat-back exhaust system.

Yes. I made the intake on my own, and had Magnaflow use my Jeep for R&D. K&N's cold air intake should be out with in another 2 months, but am not sure on the Magnaflow kit. I'll tell you this much, the Hemi likes to breath!!! This magnaflow kit is the best ever. PLenty of sound from the engine to make it sound tough. But not loud enough inside to drive you crazy, and specially no dronning. They did a great job.

Gibson Exhaust and AEM Brute Force CAI

Well, I took the plunge and ordered my new Gibson exhaust and AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake. I hope to have it by next week. I will take pictures of before and after and of course let everyone know of the increases of both hp and mileage.

Re: Gibson Exhaust and AEM Brute Force CAI

I too just ordered the AEM Brute Force, What made you go with the Gibson over the Magna Flow or Borla?

Re: Gibson Exhaust and AEM Brute Force CAI

I chose the Gibson over the Borla and Magnaflow as it seems to have the most HP and Torque gain over the other 2. I will know for sure when I receive it and install it probally next weekend(Sunday). I will of course post pictures of the process so everyone can see and let you know about the sound.

What to do first? Intake or exhaust?

Hey guys/gals if you had to choose between doing your CAI or exhaust as your first mod what would you do?

I have to take baby steps so Im wondering what to do first.

Thanks for all the help.
