Mopar Performance Intake/Exhaust

Just ordered my MOPAR performance intake/exhaust for my xk to "try and increase the fuel economy" - that's what i told my wife anyway. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Got the exhaust from dealer BECAUSE it ended up being cheaper than buying it at a discount price online and having to pay for shipping to Hawaii. Purchased the Intake from a Dealer on the mainland (Not sure where) but was only 240$.

That's because they only have one for the 5.7, which is the engine that blinkgold311 has. There are other companies that have the exhaust for the 4.7.

OK. Installed the exhaust last night. It was a grueling 2 hour battle that tested my wits and strength, but it's done. A big problem I had was not having a tall enough jack. The one I have couldn't even get the rear tire off of the ground so the suspension was not fully out. A reciprocating saw took care of the problem of trying to "weave" out the old exhaust. The MOPAR Performance exhaust is not only about 100 lbs lighter than the factory, but sounds about a million times better. Nothing better than a HEMI with an exhaust.

Because no one would ever want to mod the 4.7 according to Chrysler!

Alrighty, all finished and I must say, if you have the extra money, this is an investment you NEED to make! Sounds AWESOME and I am getting better gas mileage! I did the computer reset thingy to reset the history and driving conditions. Overall about 2 mpg better, so im up to 15!!! I'm GREEN! (kinda) Here are some pics of the final product.

Intake: http://s293.photobucket.com/albums/m...t=DSC00506.jpg
All in all, the intake was actually a lot more complicated than i thought it was going to be, but it's done now and well worth it.
