Reso delete with stock exhaust

Hey guys, I did a search and didn't find anything......I'm just wanting to add a little more growl to the exhaust sound. Nothing too loud to where I get the wife pissed at me. Would removing the resonators do the trick? Or should I just get an exhaust? I was also thinking of the Magna flow 12599 muffler.

Yea it might give you a tad more volume, but deleting the resos altogether and putting in a better flowing muffler or exhaust system would be your best bet, sir..........you wont get TOO loud on the exhaust until you start adding cutouts and headers............

I recently did a reso delete, at the suggestion of a couple of other forum members here, and I absolutely love the sound now. Definitely gives it a little more of a growl, I've got compliments on it as well. Got some new, thicker walled tips installed too, whole thing only cost about $275 which I thought was a great deal. Not too loud, but not too quiet, just perfect to me. I attached a few pics too so you could see what the process looks like. Good luck!!!

I am thinking of doing the exact same, Magnaflow 12599 + reso delete. I am probably a few weeks out on mine, when are you thinking of doing yours? One of us can be the guinea pig for the other!

There is no need to guinea pig it. It has been done and most complain of drone but it is louder. If a search was really done it was a poor one at that.

Blame the OP

This is a good thread as well:

http://www.cherokeesrt8.com/forums/s...agnaflow+12599

I am now leaning towards leaving the Resos on and just getting a new suitcase muffler, most likely a Magnaflow. I am only looking for a little more bark when WOT. Also, if I decide I want it louder, I can always go back and cut out the Resos.
