Stuck with a wheezy V-6 or barely adequate 4.7? Then you're in luck, sort off! Why spend hard earned dollars, dinars, pounds or euros (euro in Greek means piss, ironic, isn't it?) souping-up your subpar intake, engine and exhaust to get the throaty warble of a proper V-8 () when you can buy this
and save beaucoup bucks!

P.S: Somebody, please, put one of these in a Smart Car. That would be hilarious!

I have a HEMI and I need to get that.


P.S., the video is from "Gizmag" - be careful how you pronounce that.

My "barely adequate 4.7 L" makes 340 hp w/ bolt ons...that's plenty for me in a Jeep. If I wanted a street racer I'd build another car....or get me a killer sound device just like this. Ha Ha!

As if my fuel mileage wasn't bad enough. Plug that baby in and forget about it. I figure I would be into the single digits in about an hour!

Jeep commander with 4.7l $30k
performance chip/programmer. $400
Cat back exhaust. $600
Air intake system. $250

Realizing that is would have been cheaper to buy a stock 357 hp Hemi and get more power....
