JBA complete exhaust

Hi guys,

anybody have the complete 3" exhaust from JBA with 1 7/8" headers and catted midpipes? Or somebody have expirience with it? Just wonder how loid this will be compared to setup from Stainless works with the Retro one.
Just plan now to buy a new car and thinking about different exhaust....
Thanks guys for some hints

Just installed my headers yesterday, man they sound awesome. Headers to tips are JBA, great fitment,no issues,and I think the meanest sound. I'm gonna take a video later,if you want I will send you link so you can see for yourself.

Definately put a link up ASAP bud, I've been pondering the SW retro vs JBA catbacks for a while (have kooks LTs and 2.5" "sleeper" system currently). I want a lower, more aggressive tone w/o pissing off everyone in my neighborhood. Just too hard to get a good idea from the clips we have on here currently.

Sound aside, when comparing those two keep in mind that JBA headers use 409 stainless steel and Stainless Works uses 304L stainless steel.

I have the JBA ceramic Coated headers and they look like the day I put them on in 2010. Here are a few videos of the FULL JBA system and it sounds and fits great.

JBA 3" catback + TSP 1 7/8" headers + catless connections

Before headers (catback only, stock mids).



After headers.

I had the 1 7/8" headers to hi-flow cats with the 3" catback. Droned like a mother around 1700 RPMs and had to change it. Other than that I loved the sound at idle and WOT. Just the drone between 1500-2000 RPMs drove me insane. I would have rather drove around with 3" straight pipes than the 3" exhaust.

Tried to upload video but guess I need to put it on YouTube first. But glad to see some others running the same setup.

I finally got someone I trust to romp on it a little bit so I could listen outside the car. I was considering putting my stock catback back on, but that ain't happening! The only thing I'm interested in changing now is the cam .

::EDIT::

And start uploading your videos to youtube. I just started using it, and they actually have some cool tools you can use. Like trimming videos... enhancments, etc..

I finally made an update to my older video (after Lingenfelter work). I tried to get the drone but the camera doesn't really pick it up very well for obvious reasons.

Enjoy:

The JBA full system is pretty killer and very comparable volume wise to the Stainless Works stuff. Like Chase mentioned, SW uses 304 stainless steel which is superior but you can't beat JBA's bang for your buck even with ceramic coating!

Just did ceramic JBA shorty's on the car and they look great. I have had the same type headers on the 2010 and my 98 for years and no problems with the 409/ceramic.

I have the a complete JBA exhaust kit. It definately turns heads at the track. I can post a video of it on the dyno or track if you want to hear it. On the high way it can be a bit obnoxious. Cruising 60-70mph not so bad, 70-80 terrible, and it quiets down 80+. Fit and finish is great, go it welded though, but I never could get the included V-band clamps to seal properly so I bought slightly better ones and soved that problem. The kit has been on the car over two years and now issues other than the clamps.

The full 3" JBA sounds amazing and it fits like a glove. I have had it on my car for three years and it looks like the day I installed it for the most part.



Juiced has a great deal on the JBA system right now also.

Same here. I guess the saying "if it's too loud, you're too old" has finally caught up with me at 53. Love the sound outside. Great old school muscle car. But the drone is killing me.
Will be removing and putting the stock back on till I can find something else.

Any offers on the JBA ceramic headers and full 3" JBA catted exhaust?

Just install some J-Tubes and the drone will be gone. That is what most do with many setups if they are to loud.

Easier said than done.
Is everyone doing this themselves or taking it to a shop?
