Re: Mopar performance?

This is just my opinion, I purchased through souther hot rod, A B&B cat back with a Volant Intake for 1200.00 THis is a very good deal. Plus Edwin at SHR
is an excellent person to deal with.

I believe this is the best HP combo. THe B&B has a x pipe incorporated in mid section to equal out the system and the whole unit is beautiful. Some have had problems MOST have not.

The Volant will definatly give you the best results, It is a fully inclosed unit like the stock box and will cut down on the HOT air intake,compared to the open units. Plus you can add a some tubing and make it a ram air using the factory brake scoop.

Just my 2 cents.

Chris

OH and HP results in total i would not expect to see any more then 20HP from this combo, but it will set you up for future mods.

Re: Mopar performance?

i have just shy of 1300.00 in my mopar catback and mopar cold air intake, and completely love the sound. not too sure of the performance just yet, have not had much drive time with them. got these parts from my local dealership new. sweet prices. all you need is a chrysler employee in the family. all easy to install.

Re: Mopar performance?

$2200?!?! What the hell.

I purchased both my Mopar CAI and Corsa exhaust off ebay, together they came to $1300.

DO NOT buy the B&B Exhaust, it's pure junk in every sense of the word. Corsa offers NO Drone, incredible build quality and great sound.

Have you owned a B&B? I'd hope so if you're going to call something "pure junk in every sense of the word."

I know that a couple of posters have complained of split weld seams and resulting poor customer service, but several of us have had no problems and love the sound and look.

Re: Mopar performance?

No I haven't owned one, however the numerous threads about TERRIBLE customer service and poor quality welds are enough to convince me. Not only have GC SRT8 owners had problems, but the LX guys as well.

Not arguing with your opinion, but I think a definitive statement calling something pure junk in every sense of the word means more if it came from someone with first hand experience (like inferno ).

Re: Mopar performance?

I think he would agree with me.

I was a little harsh...maybe not pure junk in every sense of the word, how about "synthetic junk with a high probability of cracked welds"? Is that better?

Or even better: "incredibly sounding synthetic junk with a high probability of cracked welds".

Re: Mopar performance?

Mopar/Corsa has an X-pipe as do most good cat-backs. Zoomers has a new system, but still a tad shy of Corsa IMO.
