Ask and you shall receive... except they're based out of Poland and I'm pretty sure this was a one-time exhaust. I dig it a lot though, you could easily take this to an exhaust shop and try to have something custom made.

That is a promising sound clip. I'd wait until their product is imported and sold by a US vendor. Also it appears their site has an invalid SSL cert. No way i'd input my CC info there.

My work is blocking that site due to the cert issue, does it mention being controlled by the aux switches?

I bought the Flowmaster axle back aka rear muffler delete pipe. It's a high mount and from what I've seen there really isn't my change in the way of sound. Just frees up some weight & space........and should let the turbo breathe easier.

More to follow

One of the exhaust brands should come up with an exhaust that is stock sounding normally. (for highway driving) Then via a flapper, controlled via the aux switches, gets a bit louder. One could probably accomplish this with an exhaust cut out, but I don't really want it that loud. Using the aux switches would allow you to customize how you want it to open, reuse previous state, or always start closed and require a button push to open.
Just route the cutout to a low restriction muffler. A little bullet muffler or something. Any exhaust shop would be able to weld it up, you'd just have to wire the switch. Or get a vacuum actuated one and have loud WOT all the time.
With the turbo, the exhaust, even straight pipe, isn't going to be too loud.

By the time the exhaust gets to the rear muffler it’s volume had decreased significantly. This means an a low-restriction axle-back muffler will have relatively little effect on performance. It can effect the sound, which is what most are interested in anyway.

While a turbo will reduce the exhaust sound somewhat, “too loud” is a personal observation. Personally, I wouldn’t want to sound like a riced Honda.....but then that’s just me.

I just got a email from Borla letting me know the cat back for the 2.0l is available. Does anybody have a sound clip?
I feel like barely anyone has been able to give exhaust clips for these 2.0L’s. I’ve asked multiple people to no avail. :CWL: Which Borla system are you referring to? I know they have their Climber high-clearance kit out, but even Borla’s test video had awful sound quality.

I have the original Borla Climber 2.0T prototype as they used my Jeep.

It’s really hard to get a good clip without proper equipment, but subjectively, as someone who has had modified exhausts for close to 25 years, they did a really great job.

No drone, great tone, and sounds 1,000 time better than stock. Never intrusive never too much. It does feel noticeably more responsive afterwards (butt dyno only).

Candidly I did it for clearance and performance, but I couldn’t be happier in other regards.

I have the dynomax eliminator pipe on my 2.0. The cold start is for SURE the loudest part, it sounds like a vacuum playing a tuba. Once its warm it tames down quite a bit. It's not a ricey tone at all, very mellow and It's honestly not obnoxious day to day, on the highway I barely notice it. On the trail the rpms are right in the deepest sounding range so it's a bit on the loud side. I'll work on uploading clips, interior noise will be different since I have my trektop on but I'll get some revving and some accelerations. I'm going back to stock since I now pay attention to every gear change and I kind of like not hearing the transmission do its thing.

The dynomax vt was on my radar in my jk days before I went with a banks. They have an automatic valve, pretty cool stuff. I just wonder how long that spring would last with all the heat.

That’s great to hear!! Now if only they made one for a two-door. :CWL: Magnaflow’s Rock Crawler system has been getting some love with the 2.0L owners too. No one has really done a full video on it yet (again, aside from Magnaflow’s not so great video online) but from the Instagram stories and posts I’ve seen it’s pretty nice. Real low tone, not really intrusive, and minimal drone.

Check out this link, looks like CJ Off-Road did an install and sound clip. Not the best example of how it sounds since they didn’t actually drive it around... but it’s something. I’m starting to firmly believe that if you want any tone out of these motors you’re probably going to need a system that deletes the resonator and has a higher flowing muffler.

Do people who run systems like this ever run hard trails? That thing would be smashed flat coming down the first ledge on a trail, looks sure but use-ability of the Jeep is significantly reduced with that hanging behind like that. Of course if you don’t do any trails I supposed is it doesn’t matter.
