Need help with mods for my new Jeep

Hey I am new to modifying cars and all, and I just purchased a new 2013 Jeep SRT8. First thing, is I want to get some cat backs for the new beast, alot of people are telling me to get the Corsa, but there is anything available for the WK2.

Can you please assist me with what is available in the market, and if there are any links to hear the tone of the exhaust?

Plus, this might be stupid of me asking, if I add cat backs do I have to reconfigure the ECU?

Borla makes a few options for your jeep, and no you don't need a tune, but why not get one?

Many have Borla ATAK or Borla S for the SRT8. Several have custom exhaust set ups or other brands. There is no corsa exhaust available yet. I have been waiting for months for them to release one. Still waiting.....

Here is my custom Borla ATAK cat back.
http://www.cherokeesrt8.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=68677

Current options are Borla axel backs, Magnaflow (don't think anyone here has one. Sounds like crap on MF official video), and American Racing Headers has something in the works (may need to call them. The last two are cat backs. Corsa has been MIA for a long time, Borla got the market with being first. Well, second to MF, but it sounds like crap on video.

No tune needed unless the exhaust valves are removed, messes with the back pressure and throws codes and check engine light. Tuning is available for 12s and can cure a CEL.
